Before using Vimperator, I used Xmarks for organizing and synchronizing bookmarks between computers. Now I installed Vimperator and I can only bookmark a page from command mode with :bmark.

How can I open Organize Bookmarks with Vimperator?

Besides disabling Vimperator and choosing it from the menu what else can I do? Before, I had CTRL + SHIFT + b to open the organizer. Now, in Vimperator, this shortcut doesn't work anymore, even after temporarily disabling Vimperator with CTRL + z.

After setting the main menu visible (with :set go+=m thanks to Hamish Downer), I saw the shortcut for opening the organize bookmarks dialog (CTRL + SHIFT + o). I recently switched to Ubuntu Linux and in this version of Firefox some keyboard shortcuts are different then in Windows (including the shortcut for opening organize bookmarks). Sorry for my ignorance.

You can launch this using the dialog command:

:dialog bookmarks

Once you have typed dialog you should be shown a list of options that you can type. To find out more you could do

:help :dialog

Don't forget that you can always show the menu and select stuff the old way.

:set go+=m

go is short for guioptions and m is for menu.

Thank you for your answer and sorry for my ignorance. I could have enabled myself the menu and see that the shortcut is different then in Windows instead of annoying people here on SU. – Igor Popov Aug 19 '10 at 6:55
@Igor: no problem. It's always good to have the information available online for others to find. – Hamish Downer Aug 19 '10 at 14:28
