Add more rows for Firefox bookmarks

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

One thing I use all the time on Firefox is the Bookmarks toolbar.  It makes it super-simple to get to a frequently-used website very quickly.  Nothing wrong with using the actual Bookmarks list (or “Favorites” if you are still using Internet Explorer), I just find the toolbar to be quicker.

If you haven’t used the Firefox Bookmarks toolbar before, here is a quick video on how it works:

The only problem with the “standard” toolbar is that it only allows one row of bookmarks.  For some people, that’s just not enough.  Fortunately, there is a solution for that – a Firefox add-on called Multirow Bookmarks Toolbar.  Get it here free.

Once you have it installed, you can choose the number of rows you want displayed.  In Firefox, go to Tools – Addons – click the Extensions tab and find Multirow Bookmarks Toolbar in the list.  Click options and choose your preferred number of rows.  You can also disable this addon here if you wish.

If you do not want to have more than one row Firefox toolbar you can delete the printed name and just leave the icon. I have 31 icons on my tool bar with no name, just the individual icon. Most pages have an identifiable icon so there is no need for the printed name. This also works on IE8
Thanks for the hints. Most of them are very helpful

The bookmarks toolbar doesn’t have to contain links to web sites it can contain folders also. By making the toolbar contain categorized folders and then dragging your links into these folders for storage you can get lots of bookmarks into a single level toolbar. Also, the top level folders can contain other folders so you can organize things just as you can with Windows Explorer. No real need for a multiple level bookmark toolbar. Works with IE also.
