Move sidebars to the right in Firefox

In earlier versions of Mozilla Firefox, the sidebar that appears in bookmarks and browsing history has always been aligned on the left side of the browser. This might have been enough, but there are few who wanted to have the side column to the right of the browser instead of the left.

From Firefox version 55 onwards, a new functionality has been added that gives you the option to move the sidebar from left to right, and it is a very easy task as you will see.
