Customizing Firefox for Use in Windows 8.1

Create bookmarks with Firefox

Firefox handles bookmarks differently from Internet Explorer. (In IE, they’re called Favorites. Same thing.) The easiest way to understand Firefox bookmarks? Start with the Unsorted Bookmarks folder.

In Firefox, go to the site you want to bookmark and tap or click the Bookmark icon (the big star) on the right edge of the address bar.

This bookmarks the page and puts the bookmark in a kind of All Other folder named Unsorted Bookmarks.

If you’d rather stick your bookmark in a place where you can find it later or assign a tag to it, click the bookmark star once again.

Firefox opens its Edit This Bookmark dialog box.

Type any tags you want to associate with the bookmark in the Tags box, at the bottom. Tags help you find things on the address bar. For example, if you assign a Stuxnet tag to the bookmark, typing stux in the address bar brings up this particular bookmark.
