My folders and Bookmark-bar folders can't be same?

  • I can't figure out, when editing bookmarks: it seems letting My folders and Bookmark-bar folders being the same one collection of folders is not allowed? As I lift My folders into Bookmarks bar, they really leave My folders entirely. There's no way to "Make my Folders also my Bookmarks bar"?

  • Copy-Paste it

  • That just duplicates the folders. Instead, as you add bookmarks, you want the folders tree to stay the same no matter which you use, My folders or the Bookmarks bar, so the two don't drift apart. You want to have both addressed whichever you work with.

  • it is somehow expanded version of chrome bookmarks
    in Chrome there is Bookmarks Bar and Other Bookmarks and the are separate entities
    Opera have Bookmarks Bar, My Folders, Speed Dial, Unsorted and Trash as root folders (also separate entities)... plus imported
    and that philosophy is probably because of some internal bookmarks management (especially Bookmarks Bar) eg. for fetching favicons when they not existing (much less than trying to recreate all bookmarks tree favicons)

    Before (a year or two ago), Opera had even more of those special folders (travel, shoping....etc), but they ditch that

    btw. in chrome, bookmarks bar is also specially treated when when importing that file, BB bookmarks automatically go into Bookmarks Bar, without user action

  • Thanks. It's a pity since bookmarks handling is really the core feature of a browser, that of most importance in my world.

    Well what I'll do if nothing else is I just ignore My folders entirely and only work via the Bookmarks bar.
