Is there any way to Reverse your Bookmarks in Firefox
like in Safari ??

It is rather annoying in Firefox that it takes
2 hours to get to the bottom of your bookmark list !!!

Any workarounds ?

are you talking about bookmark manager? or bookmark sidebar?

are you talking about last added? or last visited?

In Safari when you bookmark a Site,
it shows up on the top of your list !

But in Firefox, it shows up on the bottom of your list !

that's what i mean.

How do you make it show up on top like in Safari ?

So, i guess nobody knows how to reverse the bookmarks in firefox ?
Is it really that difficult to manually arrange your bookmarks? I have a lot of bookmarks. There is no way that I could find anything if I didn't create folders for bookmarks of particular categories. I keep the bookmarks within folders in alphabetical order. I also keep the bookmarks folders in alphabetical order.

In Bookmarks on the toolbar, go to Organise Bookmarks, click on the icon with horizontal lines and then go to Sort> Sort by added, that sounds like it should work.

You can use the page down key to scroll much faster.

I hate to say this for fear of starting another Firefox war, but if you are using 3.0 you shouldn't need access to your bookmarks. Cmd-L to get to the location bar and type a few letters, and the bookmark pops up. Hit enter and you are on your way.

I realize this may not be what you want to do, and you may not remember a web address or how you named your bookmark (both show up). I'm just tossing out a thought you may want to consider. Like a typical user, I have over 1,000 bookmarks, and I haven't used the bookmarks menu in months. Simply accessing them in the location bar does the trick.
