The following code used to work under older Firefox versions. It still works under IE 8, but not Firefox 29. The purpose of the code is that clicking on "Click Here to bookmark this webpage!" add the URL www.google.com in my bookmarks (i had to replace <> with [])

[html]
[head]
[title]VPSIR VULNERABILITY[/title]
[link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="Themes/Gray/Style.css"]
[/head]
[body link="#0000ff" vlink="#0000ff" alink="#ff0000" bgcolor="#ffffff" text="#000000" class="GrayPageBODY"]
[a class="GrayDataLink" href="Menu.html"]Menu[/a]
[script src="JS/sorttable.js" type="text/javascript"]
[/script]
  
[p][p] 
[script]
   function bookmark(title, url)
   {
      if (window.sidebar) // firefox
      {
         window.sidebar.addPanel(title, url, "");
      }
      else if (window.opera && window.print) // opera
      {
         var element = document.createElement("a");
         element.setAttribute("href", url);
         element.setAttribute("title", title);
         element.setAttribute("rel", "sidebar");
         element.click();
      } 
      else if (document.all) // ie
      {
         window.external.AddFavorite(url, title);
      }
   }
[/script]

That was removed all the way back in Firefox 23.

If you need to provide a sidebar in Firefox, your choices are to either build an extension or use the social API.

Firefox has never provided an API to add a bookmark from a Web page. window.sidebar.addPanel was a method to add a sidebar panel literally. IE's external.AddFavorite has also been deprecated. You should not use the method.
