Is there a way to put multiple links in a single bookmark in Firefox?

Asked by Zone36 (416points) June 3rd, 2010

I’m using the bookmarks toolbar in Firefox and since so many websites now have little icons to tell me what they are, I just have a bunch of those.

Is there a way to put multiple links in one icon, so when I click it, it just opens up multiple tabs?

I tried doing it before by putting a link, then a comma, space and another link. It didn’t work.

So instead I put a folder in the toolbar, but there is no distinct icon for the folder and you can’t change it. I had to put a word there.

Are there other ways of doing this? It’s not really important, but I just like the aesthetics since I have to use the computer so much.

There’s an addon (use the search term favicon) that will provide a favicon for a link without one. If opening the folder works, you can give it a new icon. Other than that, Iike using Google Bookmarks, in which you can file one site under many different tags. Not the same, I know, but still useful. Also look for an addon called Smart Toolbar which removes the text but allows it to pop up when you hover, so you have an all-icon toolbar, but you can still have labels.

Thanks for the reply, but I have favicon and you can’t change the icons for the folders.

Personally, I have a couple of folders in my bookmarks that I open multiple tabs at once with. When you make the folder, a menu item appears at the bottom that says, “Open All in Tabs”. That is built into Firefox and requires no addons/extensions.

The problem is you have to mark each folder with some letter or word.

You can’t have just an Icon if you have multiple folder tabs.

You can with the program I mentioned, Smart Toolbar.
