I am running version 4.0.1

The Bookmarks dropdown index only includes: Bookmark this page Show all bookmarks Bookmarks toolbar (does nothave export facility on this) Recent Tags Recently Bookmarked Get Bookmark add-ons Following these subject headings is a complete list of all my bookmarks.

The Tools dropdown has no export function either

the Help file 'Exporting bookmarks to an HTML file states there is a dropdown called 'Organise Bookmarks' - there is not one.

I have an urgent need to back up this file because I have to do a Windows REinstall and my 'C' drive will be wiped!

thanks Richard Townsend

It has been wonderful using your Adblocker Plus feature, but lately, when I visit sites or play games that I normally do, I can't access them until Adblocker is turned off. Have these areas gotten wise or has something changed since your recent update to 5.0?

In previous versions of FF and in other browsers, I can use the tab key to navigate through all the links on a webpage - I can't seem to do this with FF5, the tab key will only highlight the address bar, search bar, and any form fields within a webpage.

Using the tab key to navigate through links on a page is an accessibility feature, and I often use it to show hidden skip links at the top of a webpage for users who prefer to use the keyboard over a mouse and for assistive technologies.

Is this something that can be turned back on in preferences? Or is there a reason why it was removed from this version?

Firefox has a tendency to want to move tabs to a new window when I click on them while my mouse is moving, even slightly. Is there any way to increase the movement threshold (change the distance the tab has to be before it is converted to a new window) or to disable this completely?

Internet Explorer has an arrow-down button (pull-down menu) next to the Back and Forward button which allows you to skip several steps back (or forward) in two clicks. How do I do that in Firefox? Navigating the History tree for this simple task is a lot more cumbersome.

When I display the same pdf file in Internet Explorer it works.
