Bookmark all tabs missing

The bookmark all tabs option in the right click context menu has disappeared, the one that usually appears when you right click a tab. You can still do it by clicking on select all tabs, and then bookmark selected tabs, but as someone who has a lot of windows open with multiple tabs in each, this is somewhat time-consuming. Where is the option to bring back the original button?

As for this feature, it's nice that you can bookmark specific tabs, but I don't understand why the original button had to be removed to make way for it, both options would be good. I think more people will probably bookmark the entire session rather than spending time clicking on each individual tab they want to save, though that's just a guess.

In Firefox 64 you have a select tab feature that allows to select more than one tab an perform an action on these tabs.

This means that you first need to click Select All Tabs in the Tab context menu. When more than one tab is selected then "Bookmark Tab" changes to the plural "Bookmark Tabs".

You can select multiple tabs in the usual way via a Shift-click for a range or Ctrl-click for in individual tab.

You can find "Bookmark All Tabs" in the Bookmarks menu or use the Ctrl+Shift+D keyboard shortcut.

  • you can tap the Alt key or press the F10 key to show the hidden Menu Bar temporarily

this is such a step back, what once required only 2 clicks now requires 3 or more for the same result, and no, keyboard shortcuts are not a solution. the default behaviour shoud be the old way of bookmarking all tabs

Where in the Bookmarks menu is it? I've checked and can't seem to find it.

Knowing the shortcut is semi helpful, I'll certainly be using it, but it's not suitable for everyone so I don't understand why the normal button was removed.

edit: Also, thank you for the information and the time to respond.

Oddly, the item is only available if you trigger the Bookmarks menu using the keyboard instead of keeping it turned on.

You can either:

  • tap Alt or F10, then tap b
  • press Alt+b

In a different thread, cor-el posted a custom style rule with can make "keyboard only" items visible when you access the menu using the mouse. This involves creating an optional userChrome.css file.

Thanks for the tip. I've gone ahead and done this and can confirm it works, though it's somewhat of a pain just to have a feature that needn't have been removed in the first place. I now have the very ugly menu bar permantly on, but since I'm familiar with css I'll see if the menu bar is something that can be changed via the userChrome.css file to make it look half decent.

The old approach of "this tab" or "all tabs" was replaced with the idea of selected tabs. Why didn't they keep everything? I don't know. Maybe you can find that in a search.

Maybe file a bug report for a feature request to leave the Tab context menu open if you click "Select All Tabs" and make this item a toggle with a checkbox and update the context menu to toggle Tab to Tabs. If you use "Select All Tabs" then you obviously have the intention to do some action with these selected tabs, so you always need to reopen the context menu. If the context menu stays open for one more action then this would speed up things.

Another request could be to remove keyboard restriction for the Bookmarks menu entry of "Bookmark All Tabs", so it is present all the time. I think that one reason for hiding it for the mouse was because this item was present in the Tab bar context menu, but that no longer applies.

Sorry for my ignorance, but how would one go about filing a bug report (It's hard to call it a feature request since it was something they already had at one point).

I think the simplest solution would just to have both options, so bookmark all tabs shows regardless of the amount of tabs you have selected, and bookmark selected tabs appears underneath that. Some would say it's unecessary clutter, but the context menu isn't exactly long or anything, putting back just one button shouldn't make it much more cluttered.

As for a feature request, more clarity on the context menu would be great. It's not clear that "reload tabs" only reloads the selected tabs, since not only is it seperated by a divider, but bookmarking clearly states "selected tabs" (edit: it totally doesn't say this, I thought it did), if I'd known of that feature sooner I'd have had less to complain about, it's probably the only useful thing about the tab selection that I've found, though that's just the case for me personally. Also, a "deselect all tabs" would be grand, once you've selected them all have fun deselecting them all again, even with shift it only starts from the current tab, so unless your current tab is the first one, it's just annoying.

Mozi changes Firefox because of analytics. That likely means young users doing something in particular. Touch screen users could have a hand in this as well.
