Firefox offers many options to work with bookmarks in the browser. From the standard Bookmarks menu to a single icon in one of the toolbars, almost everything is possible by default. Some users on the other hand may want additional options which are usually added by installing add-ons.
Samfind Bookmarks Bar is an add-on that improves bookmark management in the browser. The Firefox extension merges bookmarks with search and social features. The bar can be placed freely in the browser which is unlike most toolbars that get added to the browser.
It can be placed in its own toolbar, in the Firefox address bar, in the sidebar or above the status bar. But the customization options do not stop there. It is furthermore possible to add, remove or edit items that are displayed on the screen.
Firefox users who do not want to see links to social sites like Facebook, Twitter or Reddit can remove those from the toolbar easily.
The same is true for websites, topics and search items. The add-on groups bookmarks into topics such as search, news or videos. Each topic is basically a folder that contains one or multiple bookmarks. Options are available to add, edit and delete topics and websites easily. Sites can be added from the browser’s history and the bookmarks toolbar. There does not seem to be an option to display all bookmarks stored in the browser though which makes the selection process harder than it should be.
The toolbar colors are customizable, as are other layout properties. Probably the most interesting feature is the built-in search option which can be used to search one of the bookmarks exclusively. The search basically redirects to a Google site search.
Samfind Bookmarks Bar can place icons in the Firefox interface that can be used to quickly add the current web page to one of the available topics.
The add-on lacks subfolders, or sub-topics as they might be called, which makes it harder to fit lots of bookmarks in the folders.
Firefox users who want to try the extension can download it from the official Firefox add-on repository.
