Have you tried uninstalling and reinstalling Firefox?  That would be my first attempt at fixing all the issues, since doing so does not remove your Firefox profile which is what contains your bookmarks, etc.  

 

Also it wouldn't matter if the uninstall did if you are using the sync function of Firefox.

 

If this doesn't fix things it would be helpful to have screen shots where you are encountering issues.   A picture is worth a thousand words.

A screenshot can be taken under Windows 10 by hitting WinKey+PrtSc, and the file will be in your Pictures library, in a folder named Screenshots.  They will be named screenshot(X) where X is a number that changes depending on how many screen shots you've taken and what the highest number already used by the images in that folder happens to be.

 

You will then need to use the third party image hosting site of your choice to host that image, and post the link to that image in your next  message so that it can be clicked upon for viewing.   It seems quite a few people are using imgur these days, but any image hosting website will do.

No, you cannot.

 

This has been discussed, repeatedly and at length.  If a given forum (and this is one of them) does not have the ability to attach an image or other file you must use a third party host to do so.  That's even what the little "picture" control above the edit box is for.  If you click it you will get a dialog asking you to supply the URL (web address) for the picture you want to embed in your message.

Can you drag/drop the "star on a tray" icon to a place on the toolbar where you'd like to see it when you go to the firefox menu ≡ > customize... panel?

Well, when the instructions at the very top of the Customize tab read, and I quote, "Drag your favorite items into the toolbar or overflow menu," I believe you have the answer to that question already.

 

It seemed to me, from the original query, that something had become corrupted in the original poster's installation of Firefox.  You could be entirely correct, though, that this item had somehow been "automagically" removed from its prior position on the OP's toolbar or, possibly, pushed to the overflow area if something else has been added.

 

You can also, of course, drag them out of either location and back into the Customize tab if they're something you don't want to have constant access to in the toolbar or even occasional easier access to in the overflow menu.

firefox_v60.0.1_organize_bookmarks.jpg 

 

'nuff said.

 

One moves via drag n' drop after single or multi select or Cut and Paste after same.   I haven't seen a "move" option present within my memory, and as you can see I've used an awful lot of folders over time.

 

This is why I ask for screen shots, so I have something to compare against, and it is the person doing the asking who had ought to present one upon request.

It works just the same way as in Windows Explorer/File Explorer.

 

Whatever is selected will be moved if you drag it and drop it on another folder or in another folder.  If you when you cut something that's selected and you later paste it, it's moved.

 

This is standard Windows behavior since there has been a Windows, and virtually any program that uses a "File Explorer Like" interface has behaved this way for just as long.

Because you can use the methods I gave in Windows Explorer/File Explorer, and untold millions of us who've been using both for decades now do just that.  Would you say that someone using a right click and selecting "Copy" from a context menu is doing anything different as far as the function they're invoking than someone who elects to use the CTRL+C keyboard shortcut for "Copy"?  Your question was about accomplishing the "Move" function, and I've given you two clear ways to do so.

 

Microsoft generally gives you many ways to do exactly the same thing.  That does not mean that because your favored method is not shown that the thing doesn't work exactly the same way as other equally legitimate and effective methods, which have been outlined clearly for you, do.

 

Moves are very, very often accomplished by cut and paste or drag and drop in Windows Explorer/File Explorer.  I'd say they're done that way far more often than using the Move function itself if my decades of field observation count for anything.

 

At this point I'm done with this thread.  You have a more than sufficient answer as to how one moves things around within Firefox's bookmarks organizer or Windows/File Explorer.
