When searching for numbers on a business website quite often, though not always, the telephone number only appears very briefly. Copying the web address on to Internet Explorer the number stays visible. Only happens on telephone numbers not for any other info eg email address. Have no idea why this happens as it appears to be random though it must relate to how a website is viewed. Wouldn't where to start to fix this!

The update scrubbed my bookmarks list. I was able to Restore a backup, but the Organize Bookmarks view does not display them, even though they now appear on my taskbar listing. My Bookmarks toolbar has the correct bookmarks, there is nothing under Bookmarks Menu, and a very few under Unsorted Bookmarks. Obviously I cannot Export HTML to externally backup my list. I also cannot Bookmark this Page, because I don't get the real list.
