How to Move the Sidebar to the Right Side of Firefox

I’ve often wondered why the Firefox Sidebar was placed on the left side of the window. I personally find that it distracts my focus while browsing when placed on the left. This quick-tip will show you how to move it to the right side of the Firefox window.

Switching the Sidebar from one side to the other used to require an add-on, but at some point Mozilla decided it should be a built in feature. Open the Sidebar and click the small ‘down arrow’ (see image below) next to Bookmarks
