Manage Favorites in Firefox

Firefox is - certainly in the most recent version - a lightning fast, very stable and user-friendly browser. Let's take a look at managing favorites.

It should come as no surprise that as an average user, the Edge for browsing the internet that comes with Windows as standard does not make you happy. That is why most Windows users quickly install an alternative. Often that is Chrome, but the old Firefox is also still popular. Especially in the recent version, which features a completely new and lightning-fast browser engine. An additional advantage of Firefox compared to - in particular - Chrome is that there is no reading Google present. Your browsing data is therefore not used for statistical purposes and to map your interests even more than is already the case. In our opinion, a solid reason to use Firefox as the main browser. For the rest it all works nicely, you don't have to be afraid of surprises. As an example, let's take a look at tracking and organizing your Favorites. As standard out of the box (or after a clean installation) you will find it after a click on the button in the form of a stylized row of books in the top right corner of the Firefox toolbar. In the context menu that opens, click on bookmarks. If you think that is just one click too much for quick access to your bookmarks, it is possible to add a separate bookmark button. To do this, right-click on the toolbar and then click To adjust. You now see an overview of extra buttons for the button bar. Drag the copy in the form of an asterisk with a 'tray' below it to an empty spot on the toolbar. Finally click Ready and you have direct access to your favorites.

Add and Organize

There are two ways to add a bookmark to your collection. Tap the three-dot button at the end of the address bar, then click Bookmark this page. Or click the asterisk button, also at the right end of the address bar. In the latter case you get more options and you can choose a folder in which you want to place the bookmark.

Create folders

Folders are very useful to actually find your bookmarks again. Once you have added some bookmarks, click on the previously added favorites button in the toolbar (the star in the tray). Then click Show all bookmarks. In the window that opens, click on the button Organize and then New map. Give the folder a logical name and drag the favorites that fall under this heading into the folder. If necessary, create some other folders and repeat this action. Close the 'editing window' and now click on the Favorites button on the toolbar. That looks a lot cleaner! You can find all your newly created folders under Other Bookmarks. From now on you no longer have to dig through an endless and obscure row, but you can quickly click thematically. Incidentally, the folder overview only works via the favorites button; your favorites under the 'book button' are not divided into folders. Another reason to add the favorites button.

Finally, Firefox is available as a desktop browser for Windows, macOS and Linux. The nice thing is that it looks and works exactly the same under all those (desktop) operating systems. Ideal! The browser is of course also available as an app for iOS and Android.
