I came across this question while looking for a way to do this as well, and it appears that Chrome for Android does not currently have this option.
The following proved useful to me as a workaround:
Open Chrome on your desktop (logged into the same account as on your
In a new window, either hit (Ctrl + H) or go to 'Settings > History &
You can add (and execute) bookmarklets entirely in Android Chrome.
The caveat: it takes more work than just drag-and-drop in the desktop counterpart.
Save a bookmarklet (Android Chrome)
Long tap the desired bookmarklet
Select Copy link address
Go to Menu (three dots) and tap the Star (bookmark)
BEFORE IT DISAPPEARS, tap EDIT! (at the bottom)
You can check the app on AppBrain, which provides an alternative frontend to Google Play. Their app pages a.o. feature a history section. On the example of aCalendar+:

The short answer is, you can't. Unfortunately.
The Firefox for mobile (Android) is rather limited in its bookmarks capabilities. I stumbled upon your question as I was trying to find out if the tagging of bookmarks is nowadays possible. .. It isn't.
See Mozilla Support for information on using FF for Android bookmarks: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/...
Android has a Bookmark widget that supports individual sites, and a Bookmarks widget that will display all of your bookmarks.
It looks like you don't want to use the Bookmarks widget, but rather an individual Bookmark.
There are 2 ways:
From within Chrome: Bookmark the site you want to link to. Open the Bookmarks (via Menu > Bookmarks) and long-press the ...
For Chrome bookmarks the easiest way is to enable Chrome bookmark syncing via your Google account. If this hasn't been automatically done, you can find the option to log in to your google account from Chrome in Menu -> Settings -> Sign in to Chrome. After this, your bookmarks will be synced to the cloud and you can simply repeat the process on the new device....
So, you can bookmark folders in your bookmarks manager. Just hit the star to bookmark your bookmarks manager while viewing your mobile bookmarks and stick it in your bookmarks bar, or where ever you want.
It's not a perfect solution but it should help you out. Following preformatted text is a very simple script that can open a series of bookmarks which are tagged with a particular keyword. Each bookmark would be opened in the browser selected as default for the bookmark's URL type.
Assuming something like EverSync won't work, maybe you could just use the HTM file. Either post it online (as e.g., a page in a Wordpress blog) or save it on the device (accessed via shortcut as needed). Either way, it should open in a web browser, and its links should work.
I believe this issue is caused by using the same chrome login for both desktop and Android and adding a bookmark on desktop. That folder is used for subsequent bookmarks but for some reason, the Android app doesn't know where that is. It could be that it saves a booking folder that was deleted. Anyway, here's what I did to fix this issue on Android:
1) Load ...
It is (still) not possible currently to insert a bookmark with Google Docs for Android (version 1.20.494.04.33). The only option to insert a bookmark is via the computer as stated on Docs Editor Help: Work with links, bookmarks, section breaks, or page breaks:

You can add a different bookmark and then edit it to what you need.
Open your address https://www.example.com/go/app1 and wait until the final page (with different URL) is read. (Or use any other URL but the previous one may already gives more accurate page title useful for the bookmark.)
Click the menu, then click ☆ (star) to bookmark current ...
As of now, given the constraints, you cannot achieve what you have set out for.

I have just answered something similar... since I was looking for a way to export my history and bookmarks from Chrome on a Nexus 5X (Android 6.0).
You can use Google Takeout to download json file of your Android Chrome history and Chrome Bookmarks.
Short answer: No, you can't access those bookmarks from the PC that easily.
Because Android's UMS and MTP only gives you access to content under /storage. Chrome's bookmarks are stored in its data directory (/data/data/com.android.chrome/app_chrome/Default/Bookmarks). A normal user doesn't have the privileges required to access /data directly.
In your android chrome browser go to Settings. Under settings you'll be able to see your email id in the Basics section (its mostly located right on top). Selecting the email will take you to the Services section. There you will find an option called Sync. Select it. Make sure sync is enabled and the bookmarks section is checked. I hope this solves your ...
At least my version of Chrome (32.0.1700.107) on OS X has a menu called Mobile Bookmarks under Bookmarks, where I can see my phone's bookmarks. And I can add bookmarks to my desktop Chrome from Android from Menu -> Favorite (the star) -> Folder -> Desktop bookmarks.
Try using Chrome Beta for Android if yours doesn't have that feature.

This was originally going to be a comment, as I'm not 100% sure of its accuracy, but here goes:
At least with the stock Gingerbread browser, every link that you click makes the browser broadcast an intent to see which apps respond saying that they can handle the link's target themselves (like when you follow a Play Store link and it asks you if you want to ...
As suggested by t0mm13b in his comment on your question, a shortcut on the desktop is the easiest way. This requires you to first open the page with your browser, and create a bookmark for it (you will see later why this step is required).
As you stated not to be able to add the shortcut in the usual way, here comes an alternative approach:
