I just upgraded to Firefox 4.0 and I am wondering how do I make it so when I click the "Star" to bookmark that the bookmark ends up in the "Bookmarks" Menu instead of "Unsorted Bookmarks".

I don't use the bookmark menu but that is where all my other bookmarks are so I rather keep them in the same place.

If you double-click the star when adding it to your favorites, it will bring up a dialog box with more options, including which folder you would like the bookmark to be added to, like so:

The other option is to use an addon:

Add Bookmark Here 2 addon from Mozilla Addons.

Main Features

  • Expand all fields in Bookmark Dialog.
  • Customize the position of "Add Bookmark Here" & "Open All Tabs".
  • Remember the last selected folder when you bookmark a page.
  • Insert bookmarks from the top of Menu.
  • Add a bookmark without showing the Bookmark Dialog.
  • Single-click the Star to show the Bookmark Dialog.
  • Resize the Folder-Tree, Tags-List, Description-Field in Bookmark Dialog.
  • Customize the location of Unsorted Bookmarks Folder.
  • Show the Tags in Inline.
  • Middle-click Bookmark Star can Open Library to Organize Bookmarks.
  • Middle-click on a folder to add bookmark into the folder.
