Default Help with Firefox please

As stated, I am using Firefox and, when I click on the bookmarks to find the site that I want, not all of them are there. There are quite a few lodged under the heading 'Unsirted Bookmarks'.

can someone tell me please how I can get them all into one list.

Many thanks.

Best way to solve this problem: Switch to Chrome.

I don't know how else to solve it. But FF is a pretty bad browser... IMO anyway

Good luck

Ctrl-Shift-b to bring up the bookmarks dialog then go into Organize and you can create folders and copy/paste/move the bookmarks wherever you want.

One of these days I will figure out what people see in Chrome but until then I'll continue to use FireFox.

@NikonGuy - Exactly HOW would switching to Chrome solve the OPs issue? Why post such an unhelpful reply?

Thank you strollin, I'll give that a whirl shortly. Grateful for the help.

It would help because he wouldn't have any issues anymore ^^. Sure he'd have to re book mark everything but after that he won't ever have an issue

P.S, Chrome is faster, cleaner, Nicer, better in most every way, that is what people see in it. Chrome uses less RAM, making it faster, Chrome doesn't have nearly as many updates, yet it is more compatible and less bugs, it's a cleaner look. Chrome ftw

All this is IMO BUT the faster part. Chrome literally is faster, that has been proven.

Actually, Chrome uses more RAM and runs many cpu stealing processes. It's also known to be one giant tracking cookie!

Regardless, if the OP changed to Chrome, he would probably still not know how to organize bookmarks and would be right back where he is now!

Chrome tracks no more than ff and I've tested how much ram it takes in comparrason. So where you got you're facts they are incorrect. Not to forget I have things that disable all trackers.

Really? This must become a browser war? I have things to say, but they would get me removed so I will only say this; The OP's problem was solved, and that is the browser that they prefer. Why would you want to cause trouble around here?

Yeah, don't really want to have a browser pissing contest, I don't care what browser other people choose, but I just can't stand to see someone post stuff that isn't true.

@NikonGuy - You said I had incorrect facts so you should do some research on memory usage of browsers and you might get your eyes opened.

This is correct, If I remember correctly when you open a new tab Chrome makes a new process for it therefore using more resources..

Just for sake of keeping this forum clean I'm not going to keep arguing on this, it's OT to the OP's question. I will say however, @ BK_123. Just because it starts a new process doesn't mean it's doing more. If FF does not start a new process but the one that is open is say ( Example 2mb ), and chrome starts a new one, but both are only 500kb, than chrome is still faster. More processes with less memory can be faster than less processes with more memory. Just sayin.

Guys, you're scaring the OP'er

Anyways, I'd click on "Unsorted Bookmark" then in the new window, I drag and drop all wanted book marks from there to "Bookmarks Minu". I believe highlighting multiples can drag and drop them all together.

Hi again folks, this morning I have gone into Bookmarks and have done a 'Sort by name' and all seems fine until I click on the icon again at the top right and they are not sorted. I would have thought that I might have been able to 'Save' the sort by Name process but there doesn't seem to be that option.

My 'Unsorted Bookmarks' is now empty and so I have managed to get them all together but, as I say, I can't seem to 'Save' the Sort by Name' process

When I dragged them around manually, they stayed there. Try that.

Yep, that worked fine, thank you.

Is there not an option in FireFox to 'rename' a link as there is in Internet explorer, can't seem to find it.

Good!

I just right click on the bookmark itself -> properties, and change the name in the "Name" field.

Glad you got it worked out. You even did it without needing to switch to a different browser!
