Why my "Favorites" is creating the folder "Links"?

  Antonio Machado 02:35 26 Dec 2008

Hola experts from around the world !

Whenever I find an interesting website I make it a "Favorite" so in the future I have it at hand. Of course I have all my "Favorites" perfectly organized by categories, sub-menus, etc.

But from time to time I see a new "Favorite" at the buttom of the list with the name "Links" and then when I rest my mouse over it says "Empty". How come ? then I delete it but it appears again and again...

Any idea how to solve this problem ? thanks in advance, best, Antonio.

If you right click on the toolbars one of the options is Links which NORMALLY lives in the Favorites dropdown from the Menu bar.If you tick it on you will get a Links toolbar. You can drag site links into it from the address bar. I use it all the time for my most used Favourites or Links.
