I hope you can help.

I have gotten so confused about my bookmark problem.

I used to be able to select "bookmarks" and I had a choice to move a bookmark to one of my "bookmark files". That option is now GONE. I can only save to "current bookmark tab" which is no help. I then need to select "edit this bookmark" and move it to the proper file.

I need to make to Bookmark selections to bookmark one site. It's driving me crazy and I know everyone else has the same problem but no one has an answer that I know found.

Thank you for your help.
