Using the Firefox Web Browser - Adding A Web Bookmark

When you want to visit a web page, you must know the URL or "web address" of this web page. If you want to remember the URL of a website, the best way to do this is to make a web bookmark. A bookmark remembers the URL of the website for you so you can visit the website later. You can keep this bookmark in your "Bookmarks" menu (at the top of your screen), or you can keep a bookmark in your "Bookmarks Toolbar" which is below the "Navigation Toolbar" in the Firefox browser window.

To add a bookmark to the Firefox toolbar:

  • Open Firefox
  • Go to the web page to be bookmarked (Today we will bookmark "Ms. Kline Online")
  • Click "Bookmarks" in the menu bar (the keyboard shortcut is "Command + D")
  • Drop down to "Bookmark This Page..."
  • Type in the name of this bookmark
  • Click the drop-down menu in the "Folder:" box
  • Drop down to "Bookmarks Toolbar" so that you will see it in your toolbar
  • Click "Done"
You can now see your new bookmark in the toolbar menu below the Navigation toolbar!
