    I want the "+" button next to the url on safari to "add to favorites". not add to reading list, which i don't use.

    Any way to make add to favorites the default?

    its how it used to be before the recent update to safari.

    I would press the "+" button and the page i was on would save in the favorites and i could see it on the favorites bar above tall the tabs. which was super convenient.

    any help is appreciated. thanks !!

    I don't know of a way to change the behavior of that +, but you can hit the command-d keys together and that will save a bookmark quickly.

    You have to press & hold the + button until a menu pops up, then click on "Favorites" or any other folder in your Bookmarks. Yes, a bit more annoying than it used to be!

    I'm glad I could help. This click and hold lag is similar to what one has to do to see file paths in Spotlight Search: hold command while hovering over a file---you have to wait & wait, then wait some more as the file path scrolls up from the bottom of the pop-out. These are the only two instances I've found in Mavericks so far, but it seems to be a Thing.
