Before several updates in the last year when you added a bookmark, you could choose what folder you wanted to add the bookmark.

Now when you add a bookmark it places the tab in the last bookmark selected. Once this is done then you have to select the bookmark and do a edit. At this point you can choose where you would like to store the book mark.

Is this a bug or was this intentional on the part of Mozilla? I find this is an unnecessary step and very annoying.

I guess I didn't make myself clear about book marks.

When I click on Bookmarks the following is listed: Show Bookmarks Bookmark Current Tab Bookmark All Tabs Other Bookmark Then my list of bookmarks

When I bookmark a tab, I am not given a choice as to where I wish to put the bookmark. The tab is placed in whatever previous bookmark folder last saved. I then click on bookmarks again and then there is "edit bookmark". At this time when I do the edit I can choose where to place the bookmark. I understand how to edit a book mark.

The problem is you CAN NOT choose where to place the bookmark when you first bookmark a tab. You have to return to the bookmark and do an edit. Before several updates you could choose where to place the bookmark and not have to come back and do an edit to get the bookmark in the desired folder.

My original question was is this a bug or was this method intentional leaving out being able to choose without have to do an edit after the fact?

By the way there is NO blue start showing when I do an edit. It may be because I am using a Mac.

I keep getting "update" messages from Firefox, but when I try to update I get a "corrupt image" message. I suspect I cannot update because I am using Mac OS X 10.3.9 and the update is for 10.4. (I'm currently using Firefox 2/0/0/20.) Is there an update I could use? Or is it time for a new Mac?

Here is the transcript of a chat with Firefox community member zzxcon May 3/10


You are now chatting with Firefox community member zzxc zzxc: Hello zzxc: What happens when you attempt to download a .csv file? seegal: hello seegal: it doesn't copy zzxc: how are you trying to copy? seegal: pls bear with me I'm a slow typist. Just copy selected text Biolizard has joined the conversation. zzxc: ok - which text are you selecting? seegal: I reconcile my checkbook (spreadsheet this way). I copy the items in my online bank acc and paste it to the spreadsheet seegal: I'm using Firefox /2.0.0.19. Have no problem to do this. zzxc: Which version of OS X? seegal: In all newer version nothing happens when trying to paste- just doesn't paste zzxc: Firefox 2.0.0.x is no longer supported, and hasn't been supported in over a year zzxc: Paste into Excel, from Firefox? seegal: Sorry, I'm ahead... /2.0.0.19 seegal: Yes. I open my bank acc in Firefox zzxc: Which version of Excel? zzxc: It would really help if you could tell me step by step what you're doing. seegal: First re: your previous question: it's OS 10.4.11 seegal: About Excell: it'as 2004 version - the lasat one produced for Macs. The specific version is 11.3.7 seegal: So I open my bank acc online in Firfox (my primary browser). I copy the latest entry in the account and paste it into my Excel spreadsheet. zzxc: so, you copy direct from the web page without downloading a CSV file? seegal: What do you mean by downloading to CSV file? I could export from the https://chat-support.mozilla.com:9091/webchat/getimage?image=sendmessage&workgroup=support%40workgroup.chat-support.mozilla.comFirefox to the CSV file, but the other way around? zzxc: Are you copying your bank statement directly from the web site to Excel using the clipboard? seegal: sI don't use the clipboard. This is a mac. There is no need to do that. In PC it would be yes. zzxc: I need to know the exact steps you're taking to get them into excel zzxc: And I need to know what exactly goes wrong in the latest version of Firefox. seegal: Do you have a mac there with Firefox and Excel? It would be very easy to reproduce. Imagine you open an online bank acc, select some entries , click "copy", than proceed to your already open Excel spreadsheet and click' paste". That's it! zzxc: When this happens, do you get cryptic code pasted into Excel? seegal: As I said before: in all newer versions starting with 3.0 when I go to Excel to "paste" from my bank acc nothing happens. It does not paste. No, I don't get a cryptic code pasted, just NOTHING.

zzxc: what if you paste into MS Word instead? seegal: haven't tried that, the formatting most likely would be lost. Tried that with an other Exc el spreadsheet- it lost all the formating and pasted as continous text.

This happened

Every time Firefox opened

== Pls. see copy of the chat above. THIS A MAC OS X. In older versions, prior to 3.0 I could copy from CSV file on the website Ibank acc) and paste directly to my Excel spreadheet to reconcile my account.

After I downloaded Lion, I ran Firefox 5.0.1. Immediately, I noticed significant layout problems in CNN.com and MSNBC.com. And on Facebook, the friends, message, and notification icons at the upper left didn't work. Nor did entering comments to Facebook posts. Even the button that says "View X Comments" in friends' posts didn't work. For comparison, all of them work fine on Safari 5.1.

I rebooted Firefox 5.0.1 with plugins disabled, and still encountered the same problems.
