Organizing Bookmarks

Now let's assume you'd like to take a more considered approach to things.  Instead of Bookmarking on the fly without any worries about folders or file management, you'd like to create and maintain a series of folders for your Bookmarks.

Filing Bookmarks:

If you're really on top of things, you can file your Bookmarks as you create them, instead of sifting and sorting through lots of unrelated Bookmarks later on.  Here we're assuming you haven't already bookmarked the current page.

  • First, you'll have to open the File Bookmark menu.  To do this, go up to the Bookmarks drop-down menu, and choose File Bookmark.


  • The File Bookmark menu will appear as a new window.

You have several options here.  For the purposes of this tutorial, we'll assume that you'd like to rename the Bookmark you've created and create a new destination folder to drop it into.

  • To change the Name that has automatically been assigned to your Bookmark, type a new name in the Name field at top.

Now Mozilla wants to know where you'd like to file this Bookmark.  You may either highlight a folder that already exists, or create a brand new folder for this link.  We'll create a new folder.

To create a folder for your Bookmark:

  1. Click on New Folder.
  2. A new form, entitled Properties for "New Folder" will appear.
  3. Type in a new name and click OK.
  4. You'll be directed back to the File Bookmark menu.
  5. Scroll down to the foot of the list of folders to see the folder you've created.
  6. Now select your folder from this master list, and click OK. 

Now the site you've just Bookmarked will live inside this new folder.  To access this Bookmark, just direct your pointer to the Bookmarks menu at the top of your browser and select your folder from the master list.
