You are right -- it should be simple to add a folder in your bookmarks, and to add stuff into the folder, but the Firefox people seem to be regressing whenever they come up with a "new version," making it harder, if not impossible to do the simplest things that used to be very obvious and easy. I have used several different browsers over the last 20 years, and their functions (particularly Firefox and Explorer) seem to be getting less user-friendly and accessible. I may switch to Safari.

Simply open bookmarks, r/click under any entry and select new folder. Name and close. thecolonel.
