    Evening Mel,

    I'm not quite sure what the problem is, I've been using FF for years and all I do if I want to move a folder or file is just to highlight it then drag and drop it. If I want to sort them I just go to Organise Bookmarks and click on Sort by name.

    I must admit I use the Linux version of FF so there are some differences between the Windows version and the Linux version as I've found out in the past.

    One very useful Firefox "add-on" is N0HR's "Propfire" for Firefox.

    You can get it from here: N0HR Propfire

    It takes all of 30 seconds to install, close Firefox and then re-open it...and you'll have a regularly updated solar forecast appearing in the lower right-hand corner of Firefox!

    These two articles that appeared on the ARRL website describe a whole bunch of other ways you can customize Firefox for amateur radio:

    Customizing Firefox for Ham Radio

    Still Customizing Firefox for Ham Radio

    Of course there are all kinds of other ways you can customize Firefox using add-ons.

    I hadn't heard of propfire before and just installed it. Aside from an SFI of 70 it's working great on Iceweasel on Debian Linux.

    Nice work.

    When I moved book marks into Linux I copied them on to a thumb drive, as I am dual booting with Win XP. With the bookmarks on the thumb drive, I used the import function in Firefox to access the thumb drive, and copied the book marks back into the new browser. HTH

    One of the coolest things about FF book marks is the toolbar folder. It's nice to have a shortcut to sites like QRZ right there in the toolbar. Just type Ctrl T to open a new tab, click the icon, and boom your in the login screen.
