Well my page is separated into 6 different categories where very category consists of 12 different sub-pages = 72 pages, every one of these sub-pages will have unique content placed on the content area as well as the sidebars, approximately two-three widgets per page, I am using query posts and the rich text widget to solve this and the results is about 72 x 2 widgets = 144 widgets . For example, it would be a lot easier to navigate through the widgets in the widgets page if they where categorized into my 6 main categories rather than having them all on a single row.. Am I doing wrong categorizing my content this way? :)

Thanks Bryan for your quick response :) but it seems like I didn't explain the problem clearly enough.. I need to sort the widgets within the admin widgets panel as I am working with a lot of widgets, for example I would like sort the widgets into different categories if that is possible.. Another thing is that I would like to change the widget title of the widgets within admin widgets panel but it doesn't seem to work. If you look to the right in the attached picture of the first post I have like 10 "rich text" widgets activated in the sidebar, but as I can't change the title of these widgets I find it really hard to memorize the content of every widget..

well are you hiding the titles of those widgets so "rich text" doesn't appear on the front end, because you can always add a title in those widgets to help you organize, but they will obviously show on the actual page unless we use CSS to hide them. As far as organizing widgets Im afraid there is no solution to do categorizing them as the number of widgets you have is very unorthodox, but could you put multiple "widgets" into one widget...i ask but I don't know what is inside of each rich text widget.

Well, I also found it to be very unorthodox, haha, and I am sure there are better ways to organize the content of my web, I haven't found out which type of content organization that is best though. The "rich text" widgets were just an example but right now I am using alot of "Query Posts Widgets" to publish different page content in the sideabar area, this is because I want two pages to be published beside each other, one in the content area and one in the primary sidebar area. I am having the same issue here, in the admin widget panel I can just see the name of the widget and not the title inside the widget. The thing is just that I am using another template for another site and in the admin widget panel I am able to see both the name of the widget and the title of it, check this picture.

Sorry, seems this is widget title issue is linked to my localhost wordpress site, somehow the drag and drop function has stopped worked and it refuses to show widget titles in the admin panel, it has nothing to do with the pagelines template..

Have you tried re-installing WordPress to solve this issue?

Yes, I installed another wordpress site in my localhost and it solved the drag and drop issue as well as the widget title issue
