Non-keyboard way to open bookmark sidebar on left

Post by donaldduck » Thu Aug 29, 2019 4:55 pm

I'd like it if there was a way to re-open the bookmark sidebar on the left either by clicking on something on the far left margin (like I have in Vivaldi tho it's not the best) or by a mouse gesture. I can close the sidebar with my mouse by clicking on the X but I know of no way to re-open it except Cntrl+I or going through the settings wheel icon on the upper right which is awkward and requires a few steps.

At this time there is no other way to do it. It would be nice if it would hide/show itself if the mouse is over there.

Yes. Is that hard to program? I remember how browsers and - especially! - email used to be better years ago. Opera used to have an easy open and close bookmark sidebar - just click on the narrow margin - but that was the old opera, long ago.

There is an awkward way to do it, and that is what i have been doing: Gear icon on upper right > Bookmarks > show bookmarks side panel
