The BookmarksDropDown Firefox Extension causes a customized Bookmarks Menu (based on the contents of the Bookmarks Toolbar menu) to appear when the mouse pointer is above the Firefox viewport (the area which displays web content).

Moving the cursor back over web content, or clicking one of the Bookmarks, then causes the Bookmarks Menu to disappear.

When the Bookmarks Menu is showing, you can use the normal mouse-click operations to select and open a bookmark in the current tab (left-click), a new tab (middle-click), or open a menu of possible actions (right-click).


  1. Middle-Click or Ctrl-Click on a Bookmark opens it in a new tab and keeps the bookmarks menu showing.
  2. Middle-Click or Ctrl-Click on a Folder loads all the folder's bookmarks, each in a new tab. Duplicate tabs will not be created.

Options: Options are available to display Bookmark website "favicons" (or not), and customize the menu text style, size, and colors (backgrounds, and highlight), which can improve
