Hi I have been using Firefox for some time now and have various bookmarks organised into different subject folders. With IE6 any open folders would automatically close when IE6 was closed. This does not happen with Firefox, so that you have a load of open folders and files in your bookmarks window, making navigation a real pain. I have tried to find a way to automatically "collapse" the folders at the end of my Firefox session so that when I reopen it everything is neat and tiy, but so far have not found a solution. Can any of you clever people tell me if there is a way to achieve this.
Right - I see the confusion now. I only ever use bookmarks via the menu at the top, not via the navigation toolbar. I don't even have the bookmark icon displayed. I find that keeping the bookmark pane open just wastes screen space.
If like Netscape, Where Firefox came from, and will soon have the speed of Firefox. I just use the Bookmarks Menu then click at the side and it's gone. or Navigate to site in bookmarks, click and the list goes away
Hi Stuartli. I know I don't have to have the bookmark pane open permanently, it's just that I don't see any advantage to using it at all when accessing via the menu does all that I want. I supppose that's the reason the toolbar icon is optional, it lets users configure the options the way that suits the way they work.
