Bookmarks and Bookmark Folders in Mozilla Firefox

Monday, August 9th, 2010 by | Filed Under: Using The Internet

Roger asks:
Can I create bookmark folders in Mozilla Firefox, and if so, how can I add bookmarks (which are not saved in folders) into the newly created folders?

Yes, you sure can! Creating bookmarks in Firefox is easy, and can be rearranged just about any way you want them. There are many great websites out there and most of us have a lot of favorites which means a lot of bookmark. It’s hard to only have a few favorites, isn’t it? Favorite recipes, tech websites, games, music, and the list goes on. In Firefox you can add a folder for each of your favorites and group them all together. Keep reading and we’ll have your bookmarks organized the way you want them.

Open Firefox if you don’t have it open and click on Bookmarks then Organize Bookmarks.


Choose where you want to add the folder. If you want to see the folder when you click Bookmarks in Firefox click once on Bookmark Menu.


Right-click and select New Folder.


Name the folder and give it a description if you want, then click Add. The description is only for you to see and is good to use when you have a lot of sites and can’t remember exactly what you liked about it.


The folder you created is now listed under Bookmarks.


To add a new bookmark to your newly created folder right click on the folder and choose New Bookmark.


Put the name of the website in the Name field. Type the web address in the Location field. In the Keyword you could put “ws” for example for Worldstart. In the address bar in Firefox you can just put “ws” (without the quotes) and press enter and it will take you to that site. Just a little shortcut if you want to save a few keystrokes. Add a description of the bookmark if you want and click Add.


If you check the box, Load this bookmark in the sidebar that means if you click on View – Sidebar – Bookmarks this folder will be listed.


Now to add bookmarks to the folder for sites you already bookmarked. Click Bookmarks and Organize Bookmarks. Click on the correct folder on the left holds your bookmarks. Simply drag and drop the bookmark into the new folder. To drag and drop, click once on the bookmark with the left mouse button and hold it down. Drag it to the folder and then let the button go. The new bookmark will be in the folder you created. If you want to add more than one bookmark at a time, you can hold down the CTRL key and click on each bookmark then drag them to the new folder.

Hope this helps you get your bookmarks organized the way you want them.
