Not sure how to describe this, but I find that often when I'm trying to drag a bookmark from the URL or my bookmarks bar, into another nested folder in that bookmarks bar, I have trouble keeping the folder that I want to drag it into, open. The folders always open up, but when I try to move the cursor (and the bookmark) to the correct nested folder, sometimes the entire folder closes, other times, the intended nested folder will open, and then close before I can release the bookmark.
Is there a setting for leaving bookmark folders open longer? No jokes about Parkinson's please, this is an annoyance I'd like to get rid of if I can.
Use the Library to organize Bookmarks... Ctrl+Shift+B It will stay open forever.

That issue has been around for a while which is why I generally use the Bookmarks sidebar. I find that you have to move the cursor quickly to keep a folder open; the downside is that I often move it too far and it closes anyway. I'm not aware of a setting but have not looked at the source code.

OK, that good old bookmarks star is back on my toolbar. I haven't used it since I found how convenient a bookmarks toolbar is. But that's ok--clicking on that star opens up the bookmarks sidebar, which, as you've suggested, stays open as long as I want it to.
Sometimes doing something slowly, once, is better than doing it quickly and goofing it up.
Thanks to you both for the replies.
I found that cut and paste works fine.
Never thought of pasting URLs into a folder to create a bookmark. You're right, it works, although I'm not sure its quicker than the sidebar. Interesting, though.
the following addon helps

If it ain't broke, don't fix it.
Stop rapid release without automated test!
Now, Firefox lacks reliability. Storm of regression bugs.
