How do I put a button to start my default email on the menu bar?


I use Live Mail as my default mail handler. In windows explorer I have a button on the menu bar that opens the mail handler as a new tab. Can't figure out how to do that in Firefox.

Hi, It sounds like you're wanting to add a bookmark- have a look at the article on importing bookmarks to import all the ones on your previous browser, or open the page and use the menu system: Bookmarks -> Bookmark this page. Firefox also has an option for pages you always want open: pinned tabs. Have a look at this link for that.

Hope that helps.
