Why do I have to use bookmarks to then move the URLS into my own created folders?? Why can't I just add the URL directly to my folder?

Here is my issue, I create folders on my bar to organize my sites - I can't find a way to directly add urls to my folders. Only way I see is: I first have to bookmark the site, then go into Bookmarks, then move the site into my folder. This is a waste of time to me and inefficient. I like FireFox but with Safari I can add the site directly into my folder. Why would I want to add more steps? Am I missing something?

Early this week, Firefox stopped loading videos and audio. I have done all the plugin updates, disabled extensions and added them back, and everything else suggested on "Fix common audio and video issues". In troubleshooting information under graphics, this appears several times: "Blocked for your graphics driver version. Try updating your graphics driver to version 10.6 or newer." ATI's latest version is 8.9 so I can't figure out what graphic driver I am supposed to update.I downloaded the latest from the AMD website. When I try to update the driver through Windows device manager, it says I already have the most current driver. Please help.

Greetings,

I'm currently experiencing a problem using JavaScript with Firefox. I can load fine JavaScript in the website, and it's enabled and everything. In that sense, JavaScript is fine.

However, when I try to run a JavaScript with the "command", "javascript:" in the browsing bar, it doesn't works anymore. I can't even do simple stuff like "javascript: alert("Hi!");". I wish to know if there is some way to fix this. I do use this "feature" pretty often to test small scripts.

Thanks.

I understand that since Firefox 4, the number of days Firefox will retain history for is directly related to system hardware. Firefox calculates how much history to retain without impacting system performance.

I have firefox 6, now I want it to retain everything I have ever searched and entered and everything I will ever will.

I don't care if it slows it down, I want everything.

Maybe you know about a user-set preference I can use to accomplish it and override firefox default settings of removing my history :(

Thank you!

When I try to go to or close almost every web site. The message appears at least twice. This has happened since I upgrade to 6.0.1 (which I did as my previous version was crashing every 30 seconds or so!) While I can still do what I need to this is most time consuming and annoying. Anyone have an idea?

It is quite a common event to send friends a lead into a web address for interesting articles or videos (Youtube urls). To do thjis means you do a copy and paste into the Email. When I was using Aol the address presented itself in bold type which allowed the recipient to just click on the address to be connected instead of doing a copy and paste into the address bar. Is there a way this can be done in Firefox?

Why am I not able to update the latest version of Firefox when it tells me it is ready to download. It seems to get "stuck" on connecting to the update server and won't go any further. This has been happening every time I try for several months now.

I think the version it is trying to download is 10.something, and it seems to freeze on the "progress" window for quite some time before I end up closing it down. I have sometimes minimised the window while I've done other things, coming back to it perhaps 30 mins later and the window is exactly the same as when I left it.

I have two screen shots, one of each browser. I don't see anyway to attach anything here. I did nothing to change my system when this started and the owner of the website says they made no changes during the time this changed.

I checked the knowledge base and only found one thing that might have addressed my problem. I did it anyway just to see - View, Page Style and it's set to Basic Page Style. Changing to No Style did nothing.

I am a web-designer, and whenever i trying to use the alt tag for the pictures it never appears. The "alt tag" is a part of the HTML language, and the one writes it to make sure that the visitor of the site will see or understand the content of the pics, even if he has a very bad connection. like so: Every thing goes right with the width or the height, but when it comes with the "alt" it never appears. I tried it on IE and Opera, and it works. Plz if you know how can i solve this problem send me to der.dolmetscher@yahoo.com IT'S URGENT alt tag doesn't work http://www.w3schools.com/html/tryit.asp?filename=tryhtml_images2 I attached a link for "W3SCHOOL" put ur cursor over any pic and you'll find no writing

Well I read a sollution to my problem but I can't locate the lead to the sollutions for this 'not responding' occuring status of my program. And I connot remember any of them cause I hardly read the options to solve my problem.

One suggestion was about FirFox saving documents of recovery or so and that certain documents should be deleted, but I don't know which ones. And this was only one of the suggestions to solve my program's problem.

Thank you for any lead.

I had FF running fully OK, but then tried to upgrade to FF9. After downloading the FFicon was crossed over, an a dialogbox said that my system did not support this version. So I threw this away and downloaded version 6, but this still has the crossed over thing, and won't open. How can I get a version of Firefox running on my Mac? Everything else works perfectly.

The FireFox' disk cache foler is set to D:\Cache (I set it so from about:config).

I cleared the disk cache, watched a YouTube video (almost 2 minute long), then looked into D:\Cache. But the video I had watched was not there! (I found two .SWF files. But their sizes were smaller than 250K. And, stand-alone SWF players couldn't play them. Therefore, they can't be YouTube videos.)

So, where does Firefox cache videos?
