Re-arranging Booksmarks and Folders in Firefox

Posted by lynnalexandra (My Page) on

I'm doing some spring cleaning for my pc. I would like to re-arrange some bookmarks. I think I'm moving bookmarks in a very inefficient manner. I'm copying and dragging each bookmark that I'd like to move into a particular folder. There's probably a better way.

Here's what I am trying to do:

- sometimes I would like to merge/combine two folders. I might have a folder for gift ideas. Then another day I might have had to sign off firefox, but had 10 tabs open to gift ideas for my daughter's birthday. I labelled that folder pc 4-15 (indicating that I was saving tabs from that day). Is there a way to merge the two folders - without creating a subfolder of pc 4-15 within the gifts folder? or is there a way to copy and paste all the bookmarks and move/drag them at once. I've been doing one at a time.

- if I have a folder with 30 items - and I only want to move 20 of them, is there a way to select those twenty and move them in one move? the usual ways I would select more than one item is to hold the shift or control key (shift for a range of items, control to select individual items). But that doesn't work for bookmarks in a folder. Is there a way to do this?

Since I am getting serious about organizing this, I am hoping there's a quicker method than moving them one by one.

With Firefox open, go to the top of the page and click on "Bookmarks," then "Show All Bookmarks. When that opens up, you can click on various folders and select whatever bookmarks you want within them using the Shift or Ctrl techniques that you seem to know; then cut and paste then to whatever other Bookmark folder you want.

Does that work for you?
