I've recently gone over to Firefox as I find IE7 painfully slow. However, Firefox has a big problem with Bookmarks, that is they disappear after rebooting. Extremely frustrating & annoying to say the least.

So my question is can I run IE7/IE8 along side Firefox. And if so how.

I'm somewhat puzzled as to this statement...:-)

Do you have the left hand FF bookmarks listing open when you Reboot?

Firefox will remember windows and tabs available when shutting down or rebooting if you don't close it down, but the bookmarks will have to be reopened using the Bookmarks Toolbar button.

Thanks for your reply Stuartli.
Perhaps this link best explaines the situation.

"So my question is can I run IE7/IE8 along side Firefox."

Yes of course. You simply choose which one to open. You can even have them both open at the same time if you wish.

Just like any two programs.

BTW I have no issues with FF bookmarks at all.

What have you got you Privacy settings set to - if you have Clear Private Data when FF closes ticked - what have you ticked in the settings for it?

Hi DieSse.
I havent touched the Privacey settings, there stil at default settings.

Private Data. unticked.
Ask me before clearing Private Date. Ticked.

How do I get to IE now that I have FF as my browser.

"How do I get to IE now that I have FF as my browser."

Click on the IE icon - or find it in the program list.

Thanks DieSse, I think I had a senior moment there!

You should ideally tick the "Clear Private Data ....." box - then set up what you do/don't want cleared when FF closes. At the very least you should clear the cache.

I don't think that will affect your problem - but it does stop the cache building up and up and....

Welcome to the club - we all get those ;-))

Thanks for the tip, I will clear the cache when I log of tonight.
So nice to get back to Favorites again, I can see how my shares are doing again:-) or not as the case may be.
