Upgrade proposal:

for dinamically added items..
1) make menu wizard scan for new elements 3 seconds after the browser started & position it back to it's desired place by the user. do the same 6 seconds after ( 2 scans )
2) if the moved element by the user in the menu interface doesn't return after 3 & 6 seconds, it means "addon removed", so the reference must be removed by menu wizard for good.
3) but what appeared dynamically & was positioned by the user in MW, should not be lost by menu wizard & removed from its database (because it cannot be detected/seen automatically before 3 to 6 seconds).

Hi,
Here is how to post an image here...
> http://kb.mozillazine.org/Posting_a_scr ... _the_forum

You should see a "Print Screen" key near the top RHS of the keyboard.
Use that & the image will be copied to your Clipboard.
Reduce them to around 600 x 500 or so in your favourite image editor, (Be sure to remove any personal info.)
& upload them to eg: > Photobucket or your favourite image hosting site.
> http://photobucket.com/
> https://imgur.com/
> http://postimg.org

(I use Photobucket....so...)
In photobucket...
Open the image by clicking on it.
On the RHS, there are a few options. "Links to share this photo."
Choose the [img] link at the bottom & it will be copied to the clipboard.
Paste that link in here.

I recently ran into a problem. I've always had a "bookmarks organizer" addon for years now. I used it for once reason only, in the bookmarks sidebar hide "bookmarks menu", "bookmarks toolbar", and "mobile bookmarks (when sync is on).

Now that add-on stopped working, and when googling it, I found out it simply doesn't exist anymore, neither does any site with info about that add-on.

So I found menu wizard, which maybe does the same? I just can't find if there are settings for inside the bookmarks sidebar, because if there are, it would be perfect.

Any ideas?

I'm using firefox but no, the add-on I was using (for firefox) doesn't exist anymore.
Seems like it would be easy to use menu wizard for this, if the dev enabled it, right? It basically does the same thing in a different menu.

That never worked for me, can't login, stay logged in etc.

Menu wizard basically already has the functionality, just not the setting I need.

Your suggestion will very load Firefox.
The best option is to set the initialization delay start delay timer in accordance with the power of your computer and the number of installed add-ons
type in address bar: about:config
search: extensions.s3menuwizard.init_start_timer
set 1.....50 (in seconds)


In addition, in November 2017 (release Firefox 57) the addon will die, because WebExtensions does not offer any API for managing the menu.
WebExtensions is a clone of the Google Chrome API, which also lacks this API

Why screenshots?
It's the same as the settings which are there for the bookmarks in the secondary pain. Just need to also be able to change settings from sidebar..

The current version of MenuWizard does not control and does not manage bookmarks, wherever they are - this is due to the conflict between MenuWizard and the internal mechanisms of Mozilla Firefox responsible for bookmarks
