My PortalMy Portal is Firefox extension that creates a live web page of your bookmark hierarchy. Leave My Portal open in a tab to easily browse, search, and open your bookmarks and live bookmarks.
BasicsAccess My Portal through the menu or by browsing to myportal://. Change the root folder by clicking on a folder's name. Open directly to a specific folder by bookmarking the folder's myportal:// URL. Like on normal web pages, left-clicking a link opens the link in the current tab, and middle-clicking a link opens the link in a new tab. Right-clicking a folder name displays a popup menu with options to open the folder's contents in new windows or tabs. My Portal distinguishes bookmarks that have been visited within the past week by displaying them in a larger font:
Live BookmarksIcons next to the folder name distinguish live bookmarks from normal folders. Click the check mark icon to mark the live bookmark's contents as read. Live bookmarks reload automatically, but clicking the reload icon forces the live bookmark to reload immediately. Right-click on a live bookmark's name to see a popup menu with more actions.
Quick SearchesQuick searches appear as a textbox and a submit button. To search, type a search term in the textbox and then either press enter or click the submit button. Shift-click the submit button to open the search in a new window. Middle-click the submit button to open the search in a new tab.
Bookmark EditingEdit a bookmark's properties by right-clicking the bookmark and selecting from the popup menu.
