Reorder Firefox 3 toolbar bookmarks within their menus Web Browsers
We all know that you can create folders in Firefox (I'm using Firefox 3's public beta) into which bookmarks may be placed; this aids in organization and, when these folders are placed into the bookmarks toolbar, they consume less space as the bookmarks now appear in little menus.

I discovered that you may actually drag the bookmarks that are in these Bookmarks Toolbar menus right in the menu and reorder them with having to actually open the Bookmarks dialog. Just click-and-hold, and when you drag, you'll see a small insertion line. Drag it to the desired spot, then drop.

[robg adds: This only works in Firefox 3, which is currently in developer (but public) beta -- I've actually been using Firefox 3 as my primary browser for the last month or so. While it's very stable, there are still a few bugs and things that don't quite work right, so you may not want to use it full time just quite yet. The final version should be out in the near future, though.]

Reorder Firefox 3 toolbar bookmarks within their menus

This is actually something I've been able to do on my Windows Portable Firefox install for a while. I'm glad to see the upcoming Mac Firefox 3 catches up -- it's a handy function to have, and I've missed the ability on my home install.

Toolbar favicons
Authored by: dzurn on Apr 21, '08 01:33:50PM

My biggest bugaboo with the beta is that the usable themes lack favicons on the toolbar. (I don't find MicroFox theme very usable).

But then, since the beta also goofs up the favicons once in a while, it's no big loss.

And big kudos to the FF team for their innovative "Can't display this Unicode character" solution!

Madness takes its toll.
Please have exact change.
