Normally, when I want to bookmark a webpage, I right click on web page and select "bookmark this page", then additional selection choices come up allowing me to choose the save folder options, changing the description properties of the website, etc. For several days all options no longer occur - i.e. when I right click, I choose "bookmark this page" and it simply saves to the bottom of the default list. I've since rebooted thinking that might cure it but to no avail. I've checked under /tools/options but cannot seem to find a cure. Please help. I am running Firefox 3.5.9 w/ Windows XP sp3.

I just started using Charter cable - maybe the extensions it installed caused the problems. See list below.
