How do I set up favortie websites so I can go to them from mail

Posted

I am a neophyte. Microsoft Edge took me to my yahoo email, and I had set up favorite websites which were at the top of the mail page; I could go to them directly. Overnight Microsoft Edge went out, I'm now using mozilla, but I can't figure out how to set up favorites. Thanks

Hi MelonWalloon, your browser shouldn't change automatically overnight! You probably can still use Edge if you want to; it's difficult to remove Microsoft browsers.

In Firefox, the favorites are called bookmarks. You can:

Hi MelonWalloon, your browser shouldn't change automatically overnight! You probably can still use Edge if you want to; it's difficult to remove Microsoft browsers. In Firefox, the favorites are called bookmarks. You can: * Import your Windows favorites to Firefox bookmarks: [[Import Bookmarks from Internet Explorer]] * Show your bookmarks on a toolbar: [[Bookmarks Toolbar - Display your favorite websites at the top of the Firefox window]] * Reorganize your bookmarks into folders if the drop-down list from the boomarks menu button on the toolbar (looks something like a clipboard, appears next to a star icon) is tool long: [[Use bookmark folders to organize your bookmarks]] Does that help?

Also, your Firefox identified itself to the forum as version 33. An update is available: this article describes how to get Firefox 49.0.1 using the "About Firefox" dialog on the help menu: Update Firefox to the latest release.

If something is holding you back from upgrading to Firefox 49, please let us know so we can suggest solutions or workarounds. Version 33 is not secure; Mozilla discloses security flaws after each new release.

Sometimes Firefox reports the wrong version because that information was saved in a preferences file. If the "About Firefox" dialog (see first article link) shows Firefox 49.0.1, you may need to clear out that incorrect information. See: How to reset the default user agent on Firefox.
