manu.jain13: You can do this by "pinning" tabs. Is that what you are talking about? Thanks.

There are also addons that do something like this. For example: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/bookrect

This feature should be by default, and also when we bookmark a page it goes to unsorted bookmark folder by default. So it still doesn't appear in the that addon toolbar.
We need to separately tell that we want to add this bookmark in bookmark toolbar. This is not a user friendly bookmark procedure. So please look into it. Thanks!!

When we click bookmark icon for the first time, it goes to the "Unsorted bookmark" folder by default.
On clicking second time, it allow us to choose the folder to store bookmark.
But there is no provision for changing default bookmark folder, so that on first click we can store bookmark in our own default folder.
So, this can be looked into.

How about opening the bookmarks sidebar? That persists across new tabs. You can use command-B to have it open. You can also use tab pinning. I think this is not a bug, but is something you should probably discuss on support forums: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/. That may help you figure out a way to get the specific behavior you want from Firefox or to find a useful addon.
