Organize Firefox’s Live Bookmarks Without Using Plugins

Mozilla Firefox’s Live Bookmarks are very useful as they give quick access to RSS feeds. By default, live bookmarks are horizontally arranged and this way of arrangement is suitable if you have few live bookmarks. But, if you have too many items in the bookmark toolbar, then some entries will be hidden, making it difficult to navigate. In such cases, you can save time by organizing live bookmarks. In this article, we’ll see how to organize live bookmarks without using plugins.

    In my bookmarks toolbar, I’ve created a folder called Google, so as to have all Google related RSS feeds under this folder. You can choose your way of arrangement. For example, if you have RSS feeds of Chromium blog, Opera and Firefox, then you can create a new folder with name Browsers and then move all those RSS feeds to it. So, name folders in such a way that it is comfortable for you to browse.

  3. Once the new folder is created, it will appear at the bottom of live bookmarks.
