Default bookmarking with firefox

how do i add a folder into the toolbar bookmark folder at the top of my firefox browser? bcuz say if i wanted to visit, i'm having to go through 5 drop down lists right now... like so

but i want to be able to do something like this....

i visit about 50 different sites frequently and i want to have easy access to all of them, as well as keep them organized into folders so they're easier to find. and i dont want to use internet explorer cuz ppl say it's not good.

you can have a Bookmarks button exactly like explorer!

Just go onto the firefox homepage and click on extensions and find one called "firefox menu buttons" download this and then follow on screen instructions and then you will have the bookmarks button next to the "Home" and "stop" button.
From there is pretty straight forward to organise your sites, i just put the sites i use most at the top.

Oh by the way, it looks like you took a picture of your screen rather than do a screen dump!

Just hit the "print screen" on your keyboard, open up windows paint and hit paste and your pic will appear, save it and thats it, much clearer than taking a pic of the actual screen with your cam

Here's an article from LockerGnome, "Getting The Most Out Of Your Firefox Bookmarks Toolbar":

He explains how to do the folders on the bookmarks toolbar.

Didn't quite understand what you're trying to ask.. But you can simply copy the folder in the bookmarks and paste it directly on the toolbar..
