Opening and Closing the Sidebar

Opening the Sidebar

  • Open the View menu from the top toolbar, select Show/Hide.  On the drop-down menu, select Sidebar.

Notice that Sidebar is essentially a vertical file of tabs and links.  By default, Mozilla's Sidebar will only include a few basic tabs:  Search, Bookmarks, and History.  Click on the content tab and the file will expand with more options.   The Search tab, for example, will open a search engine.

Collapsing the Sidebar

Once you've opened your Sidebar, you may want to hide it now and then as you're browsing. 

  • Just click the right-hand edge of the Sidebar and the panel will collapse itself. 
  • Notice the edge will remain in view on the left-hand border of the browser window.  Just click this edge to expand your Sidebar once more.

Closing the Sidebar

  • Close out by clicking the X on the top right of the Sidebar.
