Re: getting to bookmarks in Firefox


Gudrun Brunot
 

Hi: I understand. With IE, I can actually hit my keystroke from anywhere, not just from Internet Explorer itself, and instantly be in my favorites structure. So, for example, I'm browsing a cooking store website, and I find an item I want to consider, think about, get back to later. I hit alt-a and save it in the default directory, favorites. I go on, get more items, then, I go to another similar website, do the same thing. I finish up by just hitting my hotkey that I created, I'm there, and I start moving the items into directories that correspond to the particular website, or to gifts 2017, or whatever I have set up. The I have the impression that, with Firefox, you have to go into Firefox and go to the bookmarks and arrange them. You can't just do them with just the Windows file browser as I'm doing with Explorer. Am I wrong?

try control i
then tab to the list.
then you can do what you want.
i like firefox because of the search option that is in the bookmark list. it
might be the same with i e 11 but i seldom use it.

One thing I truly love about favorites in Explorer is that I can have a
shortcut for it on my desktop. That shortcut takes me right into that structure
that you, Jed, was talking about. I can cruise around in there, create new
folders, move shortcuts all around as I like to have them, even change folder
names and favorite names to make them clearer as to why on earth I've saved
them. Is that method possible with Firefox? That's at least one of the reasons
I've been hanging on to IE, even though people agree it's on its way out.

ok then how do you get to your master list of bookmarks? This is what

i don't get. It makes no sense what so ever. I tried control shift

B, and it said show all bookmarks, but none of them are there. The

only way i can seem to get to them is go to bookmarks, then just arrow

down through all 300 plus of them. What am i missing. Can you go

through step by step, cause obviously something isn't right. All i

see is all these bookmarks toolbars and other useless junk that

doesn't get me to where i want to go.

I'm just really confused because of all of these tool bars and other
useless junk. All i want is a list of all my bookmarks. When i hit
control j this is exactly what i see.
I see history, downloads, tags and it says all bookmarks open. I have
over 300 bookmarks that i know about but i can not see a complete
list. How do i get to all of them. When i go to all bookmarks i tab,
and i get bookmarks toolbar. then it says name only edit bookmarks
toolbar. What am i missing here.

It's there, try alt b. I prefer control J, but alt b will work too.
