    You can add items to the Dock easily by dragging the application icon down to the Dock. For example, to add Safari, go to the Applications folder and drag the Safari icon down to where you want it to be in the Dock.

    I'm a little confused by your post. Did you loose the icon to Internet Connect, or Safari, or was it a link icon?

    What did it look like?

    Are you talking about the "spring" icon that represents a URL (which would open in a browser window)? If you want to put a URL back down there, just drag the favicon (the little icon to the left of the URL in Safari's address bar) to that location on the Dock.

    If all you want is to open Safari or Camino from the Dock, just drag them from your Applications folder to the left side of the Dock.

    Howdy Y'all:

    it was the icon that opened teh internet connect - Maybe it looked like coil - cant really remeber exactly - i thought it was more like " @"

    I have Camino icon already on the Dock - but when I click on it it only will open one window - and if I have one window of Camino open already I will have to go to file and New Window - rather have back what I mistakedly lost

    Sorry if my original querry was a bit confusing - thanks cheers for all your assistance

    Okay, yes, it looks like an @ on a spring...that's a URL icon.

    Your mention of "internet connect" was confusing because Internet Connect is an application, different from the browsers like Camino and Safari that you're really talking about.

    Like I said in my previous post, you can drag any URL to the Dock and create a new icon for that URL, just like you used to have.

    You can also open a new browser by hitting Command-N. (Command is the key with the apple on it.)
