Bookmark sidebar shows all the marked webpages on the left side of screen and you can sort them for convenience. All the recent entries can be accessed with available option. You can log in to your account for pocketing all the important webpages and then view them later.
Mozilla Firefox allows you to access your browser home page from anywhere. Home page enables you to search for queries with any suitable search engine by choosing them from drop down list. It also includes icons for downloads, bookmarks, history, add-ons, sync and options for giving users the facility of accessing all these options quickly.
Incognito mode of browsing disables the browser to store search history, cookies and temporary files. However the downloads and bookmarks can be saved via incognito window. It also blocks the parts of webpages that tend to track the webpages that you are visiting. But it does not prohibit your employer or internet service provider to track your activities.
Through its options you can set Mozilla Firefox as your default browser, choose its Home page, select the target location of downloads, select default search engine, allow DRM content and notifications, block pop-ups and select language and font. You can send request to sites to not track you and can choose whether your browsing history should be saved or not.
