... please excuse my english - it is rusted in since 12 years ...

To avoid to enter the identical names four times

-as an diretory in fix drives (solved...three cheers for DOS batch files...works) -as an folder in outlook -as an favorite in firefox -as an discription of an physical folder (solved...works)

i have created my own database to enter this "names" only one time and make this organisation avialable for all four sub organisations. Now i need a way to transfer this names [for example (shown as fix disc organisation) \07_KFZ\14_cabrio\01_TÜVKBA] to firefox favorites. It should just as structured with mainfolder "07_KFZ", sub folder "14_cabrio", subsub folder "01_TÜVKBA" etc

My problem is, that I do not know any thing about firefox structure - my brain works as an relational data base... and ..yes yes - I use an old MSDOS-database called dataease .. but it works very well and faster as any other....and none mouse fumbling..

In case that anybody know an solution - it would be great

The latest Adobe Flash in Firefox is using about 15% to 30% of a 4-core CPU continuously which is excessive and inexcusable. Firefox displaying a video with HTML5 uses 1% to 8% CPU and the video quality is most excellent (where it is allowed to display video, i.e. no monopoly by Flash.) I have to lay the entire blame for this on Adobe and their arrogance over their assumed monopoly. I think Mozilla need to exert influence in the form of dialogue and pressure to get Adobe to kick their developers into turning Flash into an efficient and elegant program instead of the abominable memory and resource hog that it has become. Adobe have been allowed the luxury of believing themselves to have become essential. There are other companies' products that can easily replace every Adobe product and in many cases do a better job. Adobe has gotten fat and lazy. Mozilla, help Adobe to the gym. They need to lay off the Cheetos and straighten up their act.
