I don't see your links to extension?

Not even one of them is not to be compensation for Bookmark Sidebar for Chrome.

Or at least had this functions: auto-close before open folder after opening after folder. This be possible to set in old Firefox by the help of extension Autoclose Bookmark&History Folders

Firefox has a button to show/hide the sidebar.
Mozilla has help for first time users

autoclose tree is not available in firefox, maybe with userscripts
https://github.com/ardiman/userChrome.js/

sorry, no help, i dont use this "crap" because it is not static code for all firefox versions and need to be fixed each new build, waste of time for me.
