One of the main reasons I use iGoogle is because it has all my bookmarks, about 60, nicely lined up down the right hand side of the page.

I also have other gadgets like currency exchange which I constantly use.

I woke up this morning to find that they had completely changed the Bookmarks gadget so that it only occupies a small square with the links set up in 2 columns which effectively causes longer links to be unintelligible.

You can expand the gadget to full page which solves the problem but then you lose the other gadgets unless you reduce it.

What a pain! Why can't they just leave things alone or at least give us an option to expand it vertically.

If anyone else has a solution to this please let me know.

They just reverted to the old format.

I would like to think that this post & a general outrage at the stupidity of this move forced them back. The person that made this change originally obviously does not use Bookmarks to any extent themselves.

They have now added the option to have a defined number of bookmarks. Go to the gear at the top right of the gadget and click edit settings. You can then define the number of Bookmarks per page.

I set mine at 100 & everything returned to normal.
