    I'm having a problem bookmarking with my new IMac desktop. The bookmark bar shows only a few default bookmarks, like Apple. Yahoo, Wikipedia, and You Tube. When I a press Add Bookmark to add new ones, nothing show. When I hit "show all bookmarks" it gives me my complete history, not just sites I want to bookmark. Proper buttons seem to be selected under Safari preferences. Any suggestions?

    Hmm, there is a Bookmarks and Bookmarks Bar I believe? The Bookmarks Bar will show under your URL where you are seeing Apple, Yahoo, etc.

    Play around and see. I'll let you know when I get home after work.

    Bookmark problem continues on new IMac desktop

    Still having the same problem a week now since I started using my new IMac desktop. The bookmark bar shows only 6 or 7 default bookmarks. Nothing is added when I press "add bookmarks." When I press "show all bookmarks" I get my complete history, not the sites I want to bookmark.

    When you are saving a bookmark on your iMac there will be a drop down menu asking where to save it. The 'Bookmarks Bar' is what your after.

    Also notice the tiny little book image near the Top and very Left of the Safari window. . . . Click it to see/organise your bookmarks in more detail.

    Bookmark Problem Fixed

    Yes, it seems to work now. My Mac laptop 10.4 did not have a menu asking where to save the bookmark, so I was not using it properly. I've just successfully added several new bookmarks and they are now showing up on the Bookmark Bar. Thank you for your help
