Bookmarking in the new Firefox
28 April, 2014 § 3 Comments
This week’s release of Firefox brings an improved bookmarking experience, tightening the relationship between adding a bookmark and retrieving it.
The traditional bookmark star has been moved out of the location bar and in to a new Bookmark Star + Bookmarks Menu widget. When a bookmark is added, a new animation shows the Bookmark Star filling in and bouncing over to the Bookmarks Menu.
A second click on the Bookmark Star allows you to tweak the bookmark name, folder, and tags. By default, bookmarks are placed in the Unsorted Bookmarks folder, which can be viewed by clicking on the Bookmarks Menu.
This new bookmarking widget doesn’t have to stay on your Firefox toolbar either. Firefox offers the best customization capabilities of all browsers, and this means that you can quickly move the widget to the new Firefox menu or hide it entirely.
This can be done quickly and effortlessly, by right-clicking on the Bookmarks widget and selecting either “Move to Menu” or “Remove from Toolbar”. You can also reposition the widget through the all-new customization mode that is accessible by clicking on the “Customize” button in the Firefox menu.
Clicking on the Bookmarks button in the Firefox menu will show the following view:
If you’re already running Firefox, it will automatically update to the latest version. If not, you can download Firefox now, always free and always open.
