Firefox 9 offers only a simple non-hierarchical list of bookmarks, not an inverted-tree with some branches expanded; is there a cure, or else how can I restore Firefox 8?

The old Firefox offered a bookmark screen on the left with an inverted-tree structure. e.g.
Finance
CNBC.com
finance.yahoo.com
BBC glossary of business terms
Fidelity Investments
Lookup
yahoo.com
ZIP code finder
google maps
Chase personal banking
www.amazon.com
Film
imdb.com
Turner Classic Movies
Weather
Astronomy
Science
Science Times
periodic table
Schrodinger wave equation
Geology
This is like the computer folder/subfolder(or file) structure. Some folders can remain closed until needed, e.g. weather, but others remain expanded until closed, and each visible bookmark can be clicked on immediately (without opening another list).

Hi joelgibson,
Are you talking about the bookmarks sidebar? Trying hitting ''CTRL + b''. Is that what you are referring to? You can also create a navigation bar icon to enable this sidebar if you don't want to use the keyboard shortcut. Take a look at the Knowledge Base article [[Navigation Toolbar items]] for details.
Hopefully this helps!
