Firefox has been working well and recently added a session manager to keep track of sequential use where each window has multiple tabs however, this has no relation to the following question:-

Upon pressing the yellow star to make a bookmark & then edit its location, the drop-down box (Folder sub-drop down) is fairly short, it would be more efficient for me to use if it could be increased from the 6 items to more like 20 or 24 etc ie. Its the Folder drop down list under the "Choose" option... Hoping there is a registry setting as I cannot see this elsewhere ?

at work I use the Firefox browser and only 1 page thru a VPN connection so I'm trying to find the best browser configuration to make it faster and don't care the way it looks, by the way many people use this browser in my work and that's why need to have the fastest response from this page we use, which is connected to a data base running on oracle on this server for your quick response appreciated.

I do not recall if I have registered before or not. So, I just reregistered. My problem today is while replacing the monitor an error occurred. We had to start up in "safe mode" and restore to an earlier point. However, MY Firefox "blew up." I found a folder called "Old Firefox Data" on my Desktop. Can it be used to restore my bookmarks, favorites, theme, etc.? If so can you give me the procedure to do so?

I am programmer and want to open and close Firefox according to my needs. Opening with the right url is not a problem, but closing. If I simply kill the task, FF sees it as a crash and wants to start in safe mode everytime. So what to "tell" FF, that it closes automatically without seeing it as a crah?

As I'm reading a document I often want to research a great many of the links. I could stop, open a new tab, either copy the link into the new tab's entry field, wait for it to load...search for what I wanted a few minutes ago, find it, read it and then go back to my original page and pick up where I left off. It would be really nice if I could stay on the original page, paste the link into a pop-up bubble and continue reading a bit further while the requested link loaded. Wouldn't that be nice?

Thank You!
