I'm using Firefox v.3.6.6 and am taking a college course on eBusiness use that references the Firefox "Bookmarks Manager" window. I finally learned through this forum that the name was changed to "Library". (Thanks for telling us!) However, I'm seeing a typical menu bar and a row of toolbar buttons below that in the screen shot. And, I can't find any information in the forum about how to activate these features, or what happened to them.

Thanks for any information and help on this matter!

Anonymous I do not recommend any of the so-called "update managers". Why? I want to know what is being installed on my system, when, and from where the update comes. I also want to monitor the update process so that "extra" items, like toolbars and search engines do not get installed on my system. Look at the number of people on this forum asking how to remove ask, mywebsearch, alot, etc., or some toolbar that they insist they did not install. That sort of cr*p-ware comes with the free downloads people are installing. Some security software developers are even including this junk, because they get a small payment for each one installed----SHAME ON THEM!!

Checking for updates and keeping your system current is part of being a responsible computer/internet user. If you get lax, then you run the risk of passing on malware to your friends, family and/or co-workers. Why do we lock our doors, set the alarm, etc., when leaving home or lock our automobiles when going inside a mall to shop? To try to keep the bad guys out! The same applies to keeping your computer updated and protected.

What I am talking about is taking 5-10 minutes per week to be sure you are up-to-date; a little longer if you need to update an item. Even 5 minutes per day for the average user is not asking too much, when you consider the possible implications, and cost, of getting a really bad virus/trojan or other malware infection off your system.

We are all busy and never seem to have enough time. But one or two less Youtube videos per week or per day, or one less game or crossword puzzle, is all it takes!

"I'm seeing a typical menu bar and a row of toolbar buttons below that in the screen shot." The term "Bookmark Manager" was last used in Firefox 2, as I recall. See: http://ww2.cox.com/residential/kansas/support/internet/article.cox?articleId={8d7b2020-6359-11df-ccef-000000000000} Also see (click on "What's new in Firefox 3" and scroll down to "More Personal", 4th bulleted item): https://www.mozilla.com/en-US/firefox/3.0/releasenotes/ Most users never bother to read the release information, but definitely should!!

Bookmarks is probably one of the most asked topics. There is lots of information on the Mozilla support site and the Mozillazine site: http://support.mozilla.com/en-US/kb/Bookmarks http://kb.mozillazine.org/Category:Bookmarks


The current version of Firefox is 3.6.8 (click Help > Check for Updates

For recent versions and changes, see: https://support.mozilla.com/en-US/forum/1/734822?#threadId734866

Or you can download the full version from the following (SAVE the installer to your hard drive, close Firefox and install over the top of your Firefox 3.6.6): http://www.mozilla.com/en-US/firefox/all.html

See: http://support.mozilla.com/en-US/kb/Installing+Firefox

Thanks for all your detailed solutions and your prompt response! I'm guilty! I don't usually take the time to read all the lengthy update notes. (They update too often in my opinion. I'm either going to use the new version, or not. So why bother with all that reading!) Anyway, its unclear why my plug-ins (such as Adobe Reader) aren't up-to-date. I have Firefox set to automatically search for updates to installed plug-ins and it does so regularly. Any suggestions?

You're welcome.

Always a good idea to read about any new software or updates to see what has changed that may affect you.

As for the plugins, I scan several on-line journals every morning to keep abreast of new releases. It is important to keep Abode products updated due to the history of attacks against flaws in those products. Firefox does as good job of scanning your Extensions for updates, but I have never received a Plugin update notice, maybe because, as I said, I jump on the updates as soon as they are available. For Adobe, you can keep current on information about security problems and updates by visiting the following occasionally: http://www.adobe.com/support/security/ You can also check some of your plugins for Firefox and other browsers here (not ALL plugins, because the page still needs a lot of work and information from plugin vendore): http://www.mozilla.com/en-US/plugincheck/ I usually check the Adobe pages a minimum of once a month to see if I have missed anything, as well Java (Windows Start > Settings > Control Panel > Java, click Update tab, click Check for Updates).

I totally agree with your proactive approach to maintaining your software updates. Unfortunately, I just don't have the time. (I'm in school, raising a child, maintaining a home, etc.) Do you recommend any of these "update managers" that supposedly find the necessary updates for your plug-ins and software?
