Unclutter Your Bookmarks Toolbar with a Toolbar Button in Firefox
By on November 20th, 2009

If you often bookmark web pages and the bookmarks toolbar gets crowded over time, this bookmark menu extension for Firefox would be immensely helpful. It can turn your bookmarks toolbar into a button, allowing you to access your Firefox bookmarks without requiring you to display the bookmarks toolbar.

Here is how the browser interface looks after you have installed the bookmark menu extension:

As you can see, it’s much better, as all the folders are moved to a separate button. Thus use this extension and permanently hide the bookmarks toolbar in Firefox.(also read: How to create a customized toolbar for Firefox)

There aren’t much options available, apart from searching the bookmarks using keywords. Middle clicking a bookmark opens it in the background and Open all bookmarks in tabsfeature is added in subsequent sub folders.

Techie-Buzz Verdict

The extension is good and helpful if you bookmark a lot of pages and want an easy option to access the bookmarks without using the toolbar. However, the same can be achieved using the Firefox hot key (Ctrl+B) which displays all your bookmarks in the sidebar.

Techie-Buzz Rating: 3/5 (Average).
