I create bunches of related bookmarks within each folder, each set off by separations. For the first time, I sorted by key words, and when I switched back to site name/my manual sort, all the work was gone. It's all sorted by alpha now. I assume that can't be undone, but I'm holding out hope.

I've had to re-install (restart) Firefox and lost all my add-ons. The add-on list is now VERY LONG and I don't want to spend time looking at each one individually. Is there a way to separate them such as not looking at ones in foreign languages, or putting all that have a similar function in a group?

My address bar is malfunctioning. If an hour ago, I look up 'bicycle', and I then open up a new tab, the address bar will show 'bicycle'. Similarly, if I am on a website, instead of the address bar showing me that site's URL, I get either a previous search term or a previous URL. Highlighting the address bar and hitting 'esc' updates it to the current URL. Please help!

The recent update to the Print Edit addon now requires the user to save the edited document before printing. When I select "Print" from the addon task bar, a "downloads" window appears. This is new: previously, a pop-up appeared asking whether or not I wanted to save the edited document. Now, in the current configuration, if I select "Save", I can print my edited document, if I choose to "Cancel" and not save the document, I am unable to print from the "Print Edit" program. I can use the Firefox print option, but the document still must be closed and I get a pop-up reminding me about saving the edited document. Rarely, if ever, have I chosen to save an edited document.

I unsuccessfully tried to find options to adjust preferences within the program and I looked for developer contact information online. If a "fix" to this change is available online, I would like to know where. If not, would the developer please revert to the non-mandatory "save" option.

I originally downloaded Firefox while in France, and it downloaded in French. I have since redownloaded it in English multiple times and it updates for a while, and then, when I shut it down and reboot, it is in French again. It is at the point that it is affecting my work life negatively due to the fact thatthe spellcheck on emails is in French, and I am growing very very frustrated at attempting to fix this. All the more so because any attempts to fix are that much harder due to the toolbar being in French and having to translate the instructions in English into the French Equivalents for the buttons I see. Any help would be gratefully received.

Best, Alwyn

Daily Kos is a website which collects items from the web and passes them along. To read the items, I click on them in the list. Suddenly, 2 or 3 weeks ago, when I clicked on an item, the page came up blank with a small block in the upper right hand corner saying "allow". Now I must click on 'allow' every time, instead of simply going to the item when I click on it. What's happened and how do I fix it?

Try harder. But don't feel put out. The Mac never crashes, eh. I have used them for decades and prefer the Mac. But I crashed it twice weekend before last. Trying to load a neuroscience imaging software with Matlab Run Time. Took the machine to Apple. Nice guy, Henry. Couldn't diagnose the problem. Did a clean install. Migrated to OS X10.10. Don't like it. I am still having problems with the machine. But I love the machine. I hate using my DOS machine. Beside the neuroscience software I am using is open software and very UNIX oriented which suits the command line just fine. Much of the software is not ready for .10 but worked great on .9. Well, that is until the crashes. Of the crash, well the lesson for me is, if you have a crash, debug and don't go on to the next task until you have solved it. Work with Apple with the crash report in front of you.

You know, in the Oscar Wilde play, the Importance of Being Earnest he tells Lady Bracknell that he has lost both parents. "To have lost one parent can be viewed as a misfortune. But to have lost two parents smacks of carelessness." Yeah, two crashes. Shame on me.

Well, we all learn, don't we?

Great to have this forum, though. Yippee! Snoop clicking his heels in glee.
