    How do you drag and drop bookmarks to the bookmark folder. With the PC and Linux version I can drag the url from the address bar to the bookmark folder and put the url where ever I want within the folder. With the Mac version when I try this the bookmark folder never opens so I can't place the bookmark where I want, I can only select add bookmark and it goes to the bottom.

    How do I place the bookmarks where I want them?


    Thanks

    It doesn't appear that you can. One piece of advice, though: Ditch Firefox. Get Opera. :D

    HRMPH, I never knew that about the PC version. I've always just used the Organise Bookmarks dropdown for this. I may have an extension that adds this, though.


    EDIT: Yep, the Add Bookmark Here extension.


    The other BIG beef is the contextual menu "option" or lack thereof. There's NO WAY to right click and select "open in new tab" from the bookmarks dropdown. Just from the toolbar.

    Exclusively. It's my favorite browser on any OS.

    I use Firefox because I don't hate it as much as other browsers.

    I use camino for no reason at all. It seems to use less resources than firefox...but that probably isn't true at all.

    I like to think that it does.

    It doesn't look like anybody has given you the answer:

    If you want to add a bookmark for the site you're viewing, drag the favicon (the image next to the URL) into the bookmarks sidebar which can be opened using Cmd B

    Re-arranging is done in the normal way by dragging the bookmarks about.

    Hope this helps :)

    As for the browser wars. I use Opera, Safari and Firefox, and I prefer Firefox for the extensions. The opera, then Safari.

    I second that. With all the addons and extentions I don't see how Safari could come close. I love Foxmarks, no matter what computer I'm on, my Linux box, my PC or my Mac I have all my bookmarks right there with me ......Can Safari do that?

    Thanks, Right On, that was what I was looking for. And I agree, it's the extensions. Safari may be great as a browser but I just can't see it offering all that Firefox offer or I would have heard about it before. I'm sure it is tops if all you have is a Mac but if you have PC, Linux and Mac as I do you just can't beat FF with it cross platform versions. I have tried them all (Safari only recently) and I keep coming back to FF.


    Again Thanks, one step closer to understanding my Mac.

    What are the major differences between Camino and Firefox, if any?

    Camino doesnt support addons like firefox does, but it's better integrated with OS X and starts a hell of a lot faster. And, it looks prettier.

    Thanks. I'm just debating on which browser I want to use. I'm new to Mac's, unless you count my mom's really old Power Mac from 12 years ago. I use Firefox on my Compaq laptop, but I'm not sure which to use for Mac. I don't really use any of the add ons; so, Camino might be better for me.

    I used to use Safari because it seemed faster than the other browsers. Firefox is great because of all the extensions you can add. I like the flash video grabber utility.

    I used Camino on my old PowerBook G4 because FireFox took a long time to open. I also liked the fact that it had a menu option for next/previous tab so I could create a keyboard shortcut. On my MBP, I'm using FireFox and it is very speedy.

    check your tab preferences. if it isn't there, get tab mix plus. it'll give you that option, or the option to open in a new tab with a middle click. plus a 100 more. :)

    Looks like I'll probably just stick with Firefox. Thanks.
