Suppose I'm reading War & Peace, online, with a browser. I'd like to mark my progress with a bookmark. Unfortunately a browser 'bookmark' can only be created and deleted, not moved.

Is there a solution for this?

[The same question could be asked for PDF files, but I'll save that for later.]

I think you should ask this question on superuser.com – Tschareck May 15 '12 at 8:11

Well, you can edit a bookmark in Firefox, although delete/create might be easier.

  1. Copy your current location
  2. From the menu, choose Bookmarks > Show All Bookmarks
  3. Find the bookmark you want to edit (easiest to use the search bar) and select it
  4. Paste your current location in the location field
  5. Close the window
