Firefox URL Links

Dell Inspiron 1545
July 21, 2010 at 17:30:16
Specs: Vista Basic, AMD 2.4 1 GB
At the top under the part where it shows the URL. How do I add links? This works with Firefox in XP but Vista there is no links. In XP when I transfer my favorites the links show up.But in Vista I do not see the links. The links show up in IE and when I installed Firefox I chose custom and there was no option to add the links. I did not see the option when it asked to transfer the bookmarks. In XP it is under the Most Visited,Getting Started and Latest Headlines.

Just because the OP does not come back in 3 or 4 days to reply, does not mean he will not come back and reply.

If you've just installed Firefox and the IE links have not transferred then you have probably missed the boat somehow, so they will have to be put in manually. I am assuming that by "Links" you mean the buttons you can put along the top which are single click to websites. If so:

In IE the old links bar is now known as the "Favorites bar".

In Firefox this is called the "Bookmarks Toolbar". When you are on a Website you save as a bookmark then select Bookmarks Toolbar. You obviously have to first right click under the title bar and ensure there is a tick in Bookmarks Toolbar.

If you want to copy them from IE you can go to each website and Copy/Paste from IE's address bar to FF. Alternatively you can get the URL's from IE by right clicking the buttons, right click Properties and copy/paste the URL into FF address bar. In fact it is possible to do this without actually going to each website from FF, using "Organize Bookmarks" but it would take a lot of explaining. You should be able to work it out. The proper icons will not appear until you have visited the websites.

I don't think this is a Vista issue. I have Firefox in both XP and Vista and it works just the same way.

We all live on a ball.
