and found FF did not copie All of my bookmarks...so i deleted them...thinking I could take the same steps again (copie the bookmarks again). This is not possible!! If I click the file button, the "import"line/text (so to speak) is light gray, and I can't click it....so I'm not able to copy them anymore to FF for a 2cnd time. Is there anyone who has an idea how to fix this?! Thanx, Debora

I installed FF 4.0.1 and I'm loving it! The only issue, and it's a BIG issue, is that I have to press Alt every time to make the menu at the top come up so I can view my bookmarks list! This is VERY annoying, so I'd like to know if there's any way to add a bookmarks button or something that will do the same as hitting Alt and then clicking 'Bookmarks'.

Thanks in advance

I would like the drop down arrow in the location bar to show my bookmarks instead of showing what I have recently typed. I only use the drop down menu to go to my most visited sites, so this would be prefect. Is there an extension that will do this, or something similar?

I suspect I will be able to use the sidebar to organize my bookmarks, just like organize bookmarks used to work, now that I have found this out. But, it took me many tries over a month, to get the answer, and about 20 minutes just now. So, this is just a complaint. Why did you change the way such an important features works. Why does it make sense?

So my XP computer's power supply died a few weeks ago so I got a new computer. Just replaced the powersupply in the old PC to get my old files. I tried to back up my Firefox profile from my old computer to the new Windows 7 computer, which I've had running Firefox for about a week. When I loaded my backed up profile and restarted Firefox, it seems to have reverted to the style of the old Firefox, or at least the current version that was running on my XP computer. How can I keep my old profile, with the new look of Firefox that I've grown to love over the past week??

I've been trying to add folders to my bookmarks menu and can't find the option to do that.

Also, how do I add directly to a folder. As of now, I have to add it as a loose bookmarked item, then click and drag to a folder.
