How can I display all bookmarks on left side of window without opening library?
I usually have a bookmarks view (NOT the toolbar) open in the left side of the Firefox window. It shows all my bookmarks, much as the library view does, but not in a separate window. After Firefox crashed, I restarted a "new session" and the bookmarks were not visible. The help files only talk about the bookmarks toolbar, not what I'm looking for.
You can open the Bookmarks in the sidebar via View > Sidebar > Bookmarks (Ctrl+B)
Press F10 or press and hold the Alt key down to bring up the "Menu Bar" temporarily.
You can find toolbar buttons to open the bookmarks and the history in the sidebar in the toolbar palette and drag them on a toolbar.
Firefox 4 has two bookmark buttons with a star in the Customize window.
One star button has a drop marker that open a Bookmark menu.
The other star button without the drop marker opens the bookmarks in the sidebar.
Thanks. My problem turned out to be the fact that the "Menu Bar" wasn't visible, so I didn't have access to the "View" option. Sometimes a user interface can be just a little too clean. :-)
