When I C/P a address bar at the top...............there is no "go" button , so I can't get anyware. :inlove:


Bookmarks............Is there any way to have them display in a tree, like clicking the star in IE? This rolling mess of bookmarks is the pits. :flowers:


Printer....now where did my icon go ?Can't right click it up either. Grrr


Is there an extension like IE Spell? :thumbsup:

The google field is next to the address field. I can identify with your frustration there, as it's small. In fact, I just set google as my homepage and open another window when I'm searchin' a lot.

Bookmarks............Is there any way to have them display in a tree, like clicking the star in IE? This rolling mess of bookmarks is the pits.



Hit manage bookmarks, under the toolbar "Bookmarks" click n' drag to position things.
The "Bookmarks Toolbar Folder will place your most frequently used links on the third bar down from the top. I use it for BC, other forums, Yahoo, Gmail. HJT search sites, etc. You'll get used to it. The speed of resolving pages is much quicker than IE.

When you make a bookmark, you can choose where it goes. I usually have it go in the "bookmarks" folder if I don't know right then where I want it. I may go back later and move it in manage to, say a folder called "computer parts" If you create 35 folders and have them in seven sections, you can still have a dozen "loose" under bookmarks (in general) before the drop down menu goes off the page and starts to "hide" them requiring that you click on arrows to see them all.

If you import all your "Favorites" from IE and don't organize them in folders, you gotta mess. Long, long drop down menu that is totally unorganized.

Printer....now where did my icon go ?Can't right click it up either. Grrr



I don't know. I prefer to open printer from the start menu, personally


Is there an extension like IE Spell?



For spell check, I use Word, but for extensions the answer is probably, there are so many to choose from

your Firefox & Mozilla Information bookmark folder has those quick links. :thumbsup:

Additionally, pondering, the drop down menu itself has click-drag functionality. Move your most used folders UP and those less frequently DOWN. Very quick. Explore the context (right-click) of everything. you'll see that when once your link said:
"Buy the best from Zeek's Double Gold standard" you can have it labelled: "Zeeks" now.

manage bookmarks (get tree) context menu>properties (rename) click-drag (to where you want it)

You'll get the hang of it and I think you might find it superior to the IE organization after a couple days of playin' with it. :thumbsup:

I'm not using the google tool bar, if I type in an address in the top bar (that part is ok)..... How/what do I press/click/pray to/cuss at, to have Firefox take me to that location? What is Firefoxes equivalent of a GO button. :flowers:

Hi Pondering
Go View > toolbars > customise and you can drag and drop the "Go" button, printer button etc.

They should all be available - just add 'em as required. :thumbsup:

luci2a :flowers: Thank you!! Whoo hoo .....I now have a GO, Printer and history.


I guess I can put off :thumbsup: for a while.


tg1911... Thanks I'll go grab the spell checker.


Boy this moving is nerve racking. :trumpet:



Now if I could just get my bookmarks like the star in IE, in a tree on the right side of the screen I would be a little more at home. :inlove:
