Drag URL into Bookmarks Bar

  • Just beginning to pay with Opera. Like it, but...
    One convenient Firefox feature you lack that you should create is: Click and Drag a URL directly into a Bookmarks Bar folder. Click and Grab the lock icon and drag it into a folder, then continue dragging to position it.

    Thanks...

  • Dragging URLs (from a link on a page or via the lock in the address field) to the bookmarks bar (the root or a certain folder) seems to work fine for me in Opera.

  • @burnout426 You're right, it does, but it doesn't hi-lite the folder as Firefox does, so you're not sure it's going into the particular folder.

    Also, can you right-click on a a selection in pull-down menu, to either delete it or to grab it and move it? I can't.

    Looks like it to me. The background behind the folder name changes color and the menu for the icon pops up. Same in Firefox. One difference is that you can drop the URL on top of the folder to add it to the folder where with Opera, you have to move down to the folder's menu and drop it.

    For the menu that shows up when you click a bookmark folder? If so, I can right-click on an item and choose "move to trash". I can also left-click and hold on an item and then drag it where I can (out of the folder to the root of the bookmarks bar for example).
