Hmm zone alarm should not be stopping you from bookmarking it has no outgoing connections to bookmark so that should have nothing to do with your problem. :)

My first thought is that the bookmarks.html file is read only, this happens sometimes after upgrading your firefox.

  1. Navigate to the profile folder
  2. Find bookmarks.html (you can open it and see if any bookmarks in it saved to make sure this is the right file)
  3. Right-click on the file, choose Properties
  4. On the General tab, make sure "Read only" is not checked.
  5. Press OK.
For help how to find the profile folder:
Operating system Profile folder location(s) Windows NT (NT 4.x, 2000, XP, and Vista) "%APPDATA%\Mozilla\" Windows 95 (without Desktop Update) C:\Windows\Mozilla Windows 95 (with Desktop Update)/98/Me C:\Windows\Application Data\Mozilla\
C:\Windows\Profiles\<Windows login/user name>\Application Data\Mozilla\
Unix/Linux ~/.mozilla/ Mac OS X ~/Library/Mozilla/
~/Library/Application Support/
If this did not help or it was not read only, another known reason for the bookmarks button to stop working is if you have either a non compatible extension/plugin installed or if you have norton antivirus that messes it up (compatibility issues). I would try to troubleshoot this by first slowly disabling one by one the plugins, meaning disable one, restart firefox, see if it solved it. You do it the following way:

1] From menu that is at the top of Firefox window, you need to click on Tools options and then choose Add-ons. Add-ons window will appear.
2] In add-ons window, you have to select Extensions panel to view your installed extensions
3] Check for extensions known to cause problem when they are installed with Norton: These include Piclens, freecorder, FoxyTunes, Google Toolbar, and Skype extension. If you do not have norton then just go one by one slowly disabling for test.
4] Disable one by one each and every extension that you have from list above each time testing if the one you just disabled was responsible

For disabling the extension do the following:
1] Click on the name of that extension to disable
2] To disable this extension, you have to click on disable button.
Repeat the steps given below for each extension that is causing problem.

5] After you have disabled the extension, you have to close Firefox window. Click on file menu and then choose exit.
6] Right click on any empty spot in Windows task bar and then choose Task manager. An alternative way is to press Ctrl + Shift + Esc
7] Select processes tab
8] Select firefox.exe entry in processes list and then press End process. If there is no “firefox.exe” entry then you can skip this step.
9] Start Firefox browser normally
10] Close Firefox browser again. Click on file menu and then choose exit
11] Start Firefox browser again and see if bookmarks works

Alternatively if after disabling all the addons/extensions the bookmark menu still not works, you can always backup your bookmarks file (located in profile folder, see above for exact path), save it somewhere, reinstall firefox completely and import/copy back the bookmarks.


If the above solutions helped you please rate:):) Let me know if it solves it or not, am sure we find the solution:)

Are 2002 Aztec computers compatible


I am assuming you are discussing the 2002 Pontiac Aztec, the early crossover with the rather distinctive look. I would assume that since they were made by the same manufacturer and they used the same parts that their computers should be compatible. I can't say so for certain as you haven't provided much information, but, unless one of the Aztec owner swapped out the original computer and replaced it with an updated device, the computers should be compatible.

If you are thinking of trying to swap computer chips, I would advise you to wait and let a professional do it at an independent shop. The reason I suggest this is simple, unless you know how to access the computer chip correctly, you risk accidentally ruining it. If you handle the replacement chip incorrectly it is entirely possible that for a stray static charge to ruin the chip by blowing out a trace. Also, if you damaged the socket from which the original chip was removed then it is possible that you will not be able to reinsert the new device without bending any leads on the bottom. If the leads are damaged, then the new computer won't work.

Even if the new computer chip and the original chip were already installed in installable cases (the way most desktop computer chips are installed), it is possible that when you removed the computer, you might have damaged the receiving socket which means that when you go to insert the new computer carrier it won't work correctly because a few or many of the pins on the bottom of the board won't sit correctly.

How to enable bluetooth


Your computer has to have a bluetooth radio. You can check
Control Panel > System and Security > Device Manager
Do you see a Bluetooth Radio listed?

If not, you don't have BlueTooth on your computer so you will have to add a BlueTooth device by plugging one into a USB port.

If you have a BlueTooth radio, go to Control Panel > Hardware and Sound > Device and Printers > Add a Bluetooth Device

This option is used to connect a blue tooth device (e.g. bluetooth headphons) to your laptop through your bluetooth radio.

See this Windows web page for more information.
Set up Bluetooth enabled device

I will respond to any additional questions you have.

How can i download falsh player on to 2011 imac desk top threw Linux ubentu browser ?


Ok, there are a number of issues with you spelling so I am going to assume you meant the Ubuntu OS. If that is the case the Flash Player install is done by the following:

If you are using the more modern versions of Ubuntu, simply install the Adobe Flash application from Ubuntu Software Centre.

If you are using a version that does not support the Software Centre, try:

Go to the Adobe website.
  • Click on "Download the Latest Player," and choose ".deb for Ubuntu" from the drop down list.
  • Choose "Save File" from the pop up window.
  • Open a terminal window.
    The terminal window will be found under Applications -> Utilities.
  • Change to the directory where your downloaded file was saved.
    cd Download
  • Install the libcurl3 library: sudo apt-get install libcurl3
  • Install the Flash Player: sudo dpkg --install install_flash_player_<version>_linux.deb
    Replace <version> with the latest version number.
  • Restart Firefox.
  • Check that Flash Player was installed.
