    Hoping someone can help with this as I'm not very computer literate. When I go to my bookmarks and click on any chosen site nothing happens they do not load. Thank you.

    Change the batteries in your mouse?
    Have an internet connection?
    Check your firewall settings?

    It's an apple USB mouse and I have internet connection, not sure what my firewall settings ought to be and how these settings could affect my bookmarks launching when clicked. Please could you advise me on that, thank you for helping.

    It would help if you provided some more information:

    What computer model are you using?
    What operating system and version are you using?
    What version of Safari do you have?
    What bookmarked sites are not working? (example links)
    Are you able to visit those sites by typing the URL in the address bar?
    What error messages, if any, are you getting?

    Using the following...

    Model Name: iMac
    Model Identifier: iMac8,1
    Processor Name: Intel Core 2 Duo
    Processor Speed: 2.8 GHz

    Leopard

    Safari 10.5.8

    not sure about error messages, what to click on in logs to give you details.

    Just went to type URL for FB in top bar clicking mouse to highlight and delete URL already there didn't work either...had to backspace and delete each letter manually ? Put FB URL in and it said 'page requested not found' the login box was still there so logged in...no problem getting in.

    edited....MAC OSX version 10.5.8

    SAFARI 5.0.1

    10.5.8 is the Mac OS X version, not the Safari version.
    FB isn't a website. Give me the URL of a site you're trying to view, such as www.google.com.

    Sorry about my earlier error I'm not very good at this.

    just tried...http://www.ebay.com/ and the page opened fine after being copied and pasted into top bar.

    Safari version 5.0.1

    So go to www.ebay.com, then add that as a bookmark. Will it open if you click the bookmark?
