when I click a bookmark it opens in the bookmark side bar, not in the main window.

I want a selected bookmark to open in the main browser window when I click it (as it has always done before)

Re: when I click a bookmark it opens in the bookmark side bar, not in the main window.

Bookmarks that open in the side bar is the default for bookmarks that are created via a link or button on a website to add a bookmark for that site.

  • Check the Properties of a bookmark via the right-click context menu in the side bar (Ctrl+B; Cmd+B on Mac).
  • In the Bookmarks Manager (Bookmarks > Show All Bookmarks) you can click the More button in the Details pane at the bottom right.
  • Make sure that "Load this bookmark in the side bar" is not selected (un-check it).
