IE 8 is still installed, but will not run. I cannot install any version of IE--I tried. I can import only first level bookmarks. Solutions in forum assume a working IE 8… (read more)

Why do I have to use bookmarks to then move the URLS into my own created folders?? Why can't I just add the URL directly to my folder?

Here is my issue, I create folders on my bar to organize my sites - I can't find a way to directly add urls to my folders. Only way I see is: I first have to bookmark the site, then go into Bookmarks, then move the site into my folder. This is a waste of time to me and inefficient. I like FireFox but with Safari I can add the site directly into my folder. Why would I want to add more steps? Am I missing something?

Impossible drag a bookmark to horizontal bookmarksbar (space below addressbar)

In FF 18.0.2 there are 4 bars I can activate for use, by putting a tick in the respective option: "menubar, navigationbar, bookmarksbar, addonsbar". (I hope you don't mind the wrongspellings, I have FF in finninsh) When I tick "bookmarksbar", it creates a horizontal empty space below the addressbar. Isn't this space for quickly open often used pages, without the vertical bookmarsbar? Now, it seems that it is impossible to drag any bookmark to it from the addressbar or from the vertical bookmarksbar. There must be a reason for this horizontal empty space but how can I use it? Or have I misunderstood this? I have been searching for the solution, but haven't even seen any question about this. A lot of other stuff concerning bookmarks, but not just this one. Either no-one, except me, care about this thing or then it is working in others machines. All help appreciates!

At this point I have no bookmarks or folders in Foxfire or Safari. I started with Foxfire and could find no way to create folders for bookmarks. I tried the "Show all bookmarks" under the "Bookmarks" menu and then hold down "Control" while touching the "Bookmarks Menu" and got nothing related to creating a folder.

Should I start with Safari and then import them to Foxfire? There has to be a better and more direct way to reach my goal.

Hi,

When I add bookmarks to the bookmarks toolbar they do not show up in the menu and vice-versa when I add bookmarks to the bookmarks menu they do not show up in the bookmarks toolbar? I thought that bookmarks are supposed to show up in both places no matter which bookmark that I insert them under?


Thanks, bluifox
