On older versions of Firefox, I could save a webpage to the desktop, hard drive, but not with this newer version, how come?


Older versions showed a taskbar where I had the option of saving the webpage I was viewing to my desktop, hard drive, or wherever I wanted it to like in a folder. I'd save some sites by bookmarking them and others to a folder on the hard drive or to a folder on my desktop. As an example, I set up a folder entitled "Sites I Save From The Internet". That way, I didn't have a lot of sites showing in my bookmarks. Just going to my folder on the desktop, I was able to access whatever sites I saved there. I don't have that option on the newer versions of Firefox. Or do I? Can anybody help? Thank You---
