I want to create a folder in Bookmarks that contains all my login scripts.

Posted

I use a program (called AutoIt) that create scripts that fill in all my log-in info at the various sites I regularly visit. In Internet Explorer I created a folder that I put in Favorites that contains shortcuts to all these scripts. When I need one I just click on the folder in Favorites and a drop-down list appears with all my scripts. The reason this works so well is that the scripts know to go to the correct box on the web page and do their thing. If I store these scripts on my desktop I have to rush to place my cursor in the right spot after double-clicking on the shortcut and sometimes I'm not fast enough.

Firefox does not store its bookmarks the same way as IE, which is a pity since it makes manipulating the info in these bookmarks impossible.

Is there any workaround that will permit me to store these shortcuts in a folder that appears in my Bookmarks list? I see I CAN create a folder in Bookmarks, but how can I then stick what I want into it?
