Nice work on the Bookmarks Sidebar, David!
I'm posting to let you know that there's a bug in the way the scrollbars are being drawn (as white) with the dark theme. This inconsistency does not show up with the other (Folders & Filters) sidebars. Cheers, -JT 🔆

Another weird thing about the new Bookmark Sidebar. I downloaded a collection of premade useful filters collection posted here, on the forum, and it appears ok in the Bookmarks menu, but entries are doubled in the Bookmark Sidebar. The doubles are "fake" (those without expanding arrows), does not contain any filter, nothing. It's only my setup? I have to rebuild the filters?

Sorry, I thought comments about this new feature should be posted here. I haven't looked for other similar posts.

No problem.
On the other subject, the suggestion was made.

I just wanted to inform you that the bug topic is already known.

I think it would be handy if you could click the headings of these docked panes and they toggled between being shrunk to a heading and being open, whilst shift-clicking (or middle-clicking) could open just the one clicked and close the others that are in its docking area, doing so again would return the states back again.

I will consider a button to collapse panes.

Everything 1.5.0.1358a improves bookmarks.

Bookmarks -> Organize Bookmarks... is now for editing bookmarks.
Use Bookmarks -> Open Bookmark... to find and open a bookmark.

You can now set icons for bookmarks directly from the Edit Bookmark dialog.

Open all in tabs will now work.
