    How to delete bookmarks?

    I can't seem to be able to delete an unwanted bookmark. I open bookmarks, find the one I want to delete. If I open it and then click on menu > more, I have a lot of choices, but none of them are delete (I am using Gingerbread. On my old ph that used Froyo there would be a choice at this point/menu to delete bookmark, but there is none on this ph).

    If I open bookmarks and long press the bookmark I want to delete the bookmark appears on my home screen. I can open it, but I can not delete it. The only thing I can do is long press and then drag it to the trash to get it off the home screen, but it remains in my bookmarks.

    I want to delete a bookmark that I miss-spelled the name, and then re-book mark w/ the corrected name. I can't seem to be able to do this.

    Any suggestions?

    I believe you have to go to the browser, then menu, bookmarks. Long press it from there and it should give you an option to delete it.
    I cut corners till I break it.
    If I help you break it, I will help you fix it...promise!

    Another good suggestion would be to download "Bookmark Sort & Backup", free in the Market. Great for if you're a flashaholic and don't want to loose your bookmarks. Ability to sort them as well since the stock browser doesn't offer that option.
    Good luck dedapr!

    Thanks for the suggestions. But the app "Bookmark Sort & Backup" is the genesis of my problem.

    I use "folder organizer" which I find is probably not compatible w/ "Bookmark Sort & Backup". This whole disaster started after I installed "Bookmark Sort & Backup" last week. I used it to delete a bookmark, and it not only deleted that bookmark but most of the other (+/- 100) bookmarks I had! I spent most of the weekend re-entering all the bookmarks I lost.

    I uninstalled "Bookmark Sort & Backup" and now the menu choice that buddyfunlove described is no longer there.

    Now the only way I can get to my bookmarks at all is through "Folder Organizer".

    I suspect the only solution is to re-set everything to default and start all over again.

    Thanks everyone. I found a work-a-round solution. If I use the "KIES" app I can see my bookmarks on my PC, and I have the option to delete any of them.

    It may be a little awkward, but at least it doesn't come up very often.
