Firefox problems - clicking on bookmark opens pane

  Si_L 22:50 27 May 2009

When I am on a page, and I want to go to one of my bookmarks, I left click the relevant icon on the bookmark toolbar and for some reason recently, instead of switching to the new page, the new page opens up on the left hand side in a pane that takes up about 1/3 of the screen.

How do I change it back?

is that box ticked?

Firefox has two sidebars - Bookmarks and History.

If you go to the View menu/Sidebar - is Bookmarks ticked? If so click it to untick.

Any better?

Looks like AL47 might have the answer

I reckon AL47 is right

Sorry to be so ignorant but I'm having difficulties getting that box up.
