Hello everyone,

When I type [<CTRL> D] my "new bookmark window" opens.
Unfortunately the current size of this window is too small for me. Each time I archive a bookmark I have to resize it.
How do I preset its default size?
I haven't found anything in "about:config" when searching for "book".

Furthermore, my bookmark menu is in a hidden state. I have to click on that "show all bookmark folders" button before being able to put a new bookmark into the right folder.
What can I do to change its standard state to the mode where all bookmark folders are shown?

Thank you.
Michael

You might look at this Firefox addon -- Add Bookmark HereĀ²:

I added code to my userChrome.css file to resize that dialog box. I am still using that code, even though later versions of SM will save the resized size of the box.
Code: Select all
#editBMPanel_folderTree {
min-width:360px !important; min-height:584px !important;}
#bookmarkproperties {
min-width:810px !important; min-height:880px !important;}

@BruceAWittmeier,

the add-on you proposed only works with Firefox. If I click on "Download anyway" seamonkey refuses to install it.
There is a message stating that it could not be installed because it is not compatible with Seamonkey 2.40.

@ElTxolo,

creating the non-existing userChrome.css and pasting the few lines of code solved the size problem for me. :)
It is very convenient to be able to specify the window size according to my personal needs.
Having to resize the window manually before was the most bothering point when saving bookmarks.

@all,
maybe someone still knows who to change the preset value of that button into ""show all bookmark folders".
Thank you all for your help. My google-search was too specific to find that known bug.

I've never seen the 'show all bookmarks' button. Where is it located?

Regards,

Dave.

Translated into English, the text shown when hovering over the button is: "show all bookmark folders".

Thanks. I've found it now but I've never had occasion to have to use it!

Regards,

Dave.
