Is your computer plugged in?

I wonder if the new Firefox accounts for the new annoying Google features. I hate new things. Why won’t they just leave well enough alone?

Well, I don’t know what your “prior way” was. Mine is to drag the small icon by the URL window down on the bookmark toolbar and let it go where I want it to be.

That way still works for me v3.6.9 in MSWindowsXPpro

Hmm...

My little panel ( clicked on help ) still says 3.6.8

This came via the normal update service of Mint and I assume Ubuntu....

I’m using the same version for Mint 9, and it is working just fine.

What is it doing to not allow you to save? Can you pull down the bookmark menu?

Does it allow you to bookmark but doesn’t actually save it?

How about the “release notes” in help?

The panel that allows you to select the folder you want to save it in never shows up and the bookmark is just thrown away...never shows up in the bookmark list at all....

Looking thru the Mint Forum for anything but so far have found nothing there.

I wouldn’t know about that. My problem with Firefox was when I used it my computer froze about every 30 minutes. I don’t use it any more.

Maybe you have exceeded your limit.

I lost the ability to sync XMarks on my Windows XP system when I upgraded to Firefox 3.6.8.

I use Zotero to bookmark.
It only works with Firefox.

http://www.zotero.org/ to download it.

You can add notes to your bookmarks -
It’s a great bookmark organizer.

But I have been having problems with Firefox just freezing up lately. Just got the latest revision 3.6.9. Hope that fixes the bugs.

Found this on the Mint Forum:

**********************************************

Firefox updated!

Postby secipolla on Wed Sep 08, 2010 4:12 pm

Hello, Firefox was updated yesterday from 3.6.8 to 3.6.9.
I reckon the Linux Mint team created this package specially for Mint Debian and I'm also guessing they must be quite busy with all that's going on but I'm leaving here this reminder just in case.
Thank you all.
