Hi FF family,

How do i alphabetize all bookmarks across all folders in FF? I'm not talking about the library. I'm talking about the ones int he drop down from the icon with the star and briefcase.

Right-click a Folder and use Sort by Name.

Works with the "star & briefcase" buttons drop-down menu and in the Bookmarks sidebar. The "sort" is done folder by folder; there is no "sort" doe within the individual sub-folders, if you created folders within the main folders.
A mind is a terrible thing to waste. Mine has wandered off and I'm out looking for it.

I sort the folders the way I want by drag-n-drop, usually the most-used at the top and the rest alphabetical.
