    Question Editing bookmarks with ubuntu 12.10?

    Can't find a way to edit or delete bookmarked sites with 12.10 version. With 8.10 I right clicked.

    Any suggestions?

    Are you sure you mean 12.10, not 12.04? 12.10 is in development, in which case thread should be here: http://ubuntuforums.org/forumdisplay.php?f=416

    I'm running 12.10:

    1. Enable bookmark bar

    2. Right click on bookmark 'delete' or 'properties'-if not, probably a bug.

    Yes, excuse me it is 12.04.

    I right click on the bookmark and it just goes to the website. No option to delete. That is how I did it with 10.10 version.

    Hm. Very odd, methinks bug report time.

    From the menu: Bookmarks->Show All Bookmarks.

    Right-clicking an individual bookmark in the Bookmarks toolbar works fine for me as well, does your right-click work correctly everywhere else (in the browser, and in the desktop/other applications)? Do you have any extensions installed which might affect how your bookmarks are working?

    Also, if you maximise the 'show all bookmarks' pop up, the options to import/export magically appear in the global menu.

    You don't need to maximise it, and there's no magic involved; the bookmarks editor window just has it's own menus...
