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:)

I want to unblock badoo in my system


Knowing how to block and unblock sites in your operating system can come in very handy, mostly if you have children you want to protect from accessing inappropriate content. Regardless of the reason why you would like to block and unblock sites, being able to perform this task will ultimately help you take control of your network and protect your computer from websites you consider useless or potentially harmful. Fortunately, blocking and unblocking sites is a simple task you can perform swiftly through your Web browser's Internet Options setting.

Launch your Internet Explorer browser and select the "Tools" option, which is displayed on the upper right corner of the browser's window. Click on the "Internet Options" selection displayed at the bottom of the drop-down menu and then select the "Security" tab. Select the red icon titled "Restricted Sites," which is displayed in the box below where it says "Select a zone to view or change security settings." Click the "Sites" tab featured below the "Restricted Sites" icon you just clicked on. Type the URL address of the site you would like to block in the text field displayed below where it says "Add this website to the zone:" and then click the "Add" tab to save the changes (you may block an indefinite number of sites). If you wish to unblock any of the sites you have blocked, simply go back to the "Restricted Sites" menu, click on the site you would like to unblock, which will be displayed below where it says "Websites:" and click on the "Remove" tab. use security zones in Internet Explorer http://support.microsoft.com/kb/174360 b> Using Firefox Launch your Firefox Web browser and open the support page for Mozilla Firefox (see Below). https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/search/?q=parental+control&cat=all In this Web page you will be able to access an array of filtering add-ons you can utilize with Firefox to block and unblock any sites you want. Look through the various filtering add-ons available on the Mozilla Firefox support page and click on the option you would like to use to block and unblock sites. Keep in mind that some of the filtering add-ons require a payment and some don't. Click on the prompt that says "Continue to Download" or "Add to Firefox." The prompt that will be displayed to you will ultimately depend on the filtering add-on you chose; however, you will have to click on either options to download the add-on. Select the tab that says "Install Now," which will be displayed on a pop-up window. You may want to consider downloading the the FoxFilter add-on because it has the reputation of being prolific and it is free to use. Restart your Firefox Web browser once you are prompted to do so. This will occur after the installation process has finished. Once Firefox restarts, the Firefox filtering add-on you chose will be enabled and you will be able to block and unblock sites through the add-on.

My husband and I both have MSN-hotmail accounts with our own e-mail addresses. How can we sign in without having to enter our e-mail addresses and password each time.?


  1. Clear your web browser cache.
  2. Make sure cookies are enabled and clear your cookies.
  3. Update your Adobe Flash player.
  4. Force a page refresh. After logging in and landing on the blank page, hold down the control key on your keyboard and while holding it down press the F5 key on your keyboard.
  5. Internet Explorer Users: Restore the default web browser security levels.
  6. If you use Internet Explorer try using Mozilla Firefox instead. Download and install the latest Firefox and then use Firefox to go to Hotmail.com
  7. Check your Anti-Virus software and make sure it is up to date. If you do not have an anti-virus program I recommend installing Avast personal edition.
  8. Update and run your anti-spyware program. If you do not have a program that checks your computer for spyware I recommend installing, updating, and running a full scan of your computer with StopZilla or Spybot S&D.
  9. Do you have other security/firewall software installed such as Zone Alarm or Defender Pro. Try downloading and installing the latest version. If you have already have the current version try reinstalling it.
  10. Reset your web browser privacy and security settings to the defaults.
  11. If you use Internet Explorer, download and reinstall the latest version of Internet Explorer. After upgrading / reinstalling Internet Explorer, try going to Hotmail.com and see if you can login.
  12. Instead of using your ISP's DNS servers use the OpenDNS servers.
  13. Instead of using the webmail interface try reading your Hotmail with Windows Live Mail
  14. Sometimes Hotmail is the problem, try waiting an hour and try to login again by going to Hotmail.com.
  15. You probably tried already, but if not, try rebooting your computer. ahsjfjhc1jvdtiwnfhjizqryghqooatggibtttrlynvl0z4coqlogucnqgadufxbewgodamibgzfwspmu4csj+wm1pkj1okiiujp6weesb+bggkhqhurj5u6caosgtvmjgxzfdhtogipxgajagbgmztpc5knaxkcmaiq1b1pgsotwcgqzyiaghx4afcnfzqfdf5ikwckggenqxaxkdgi1ybcpwrmccdcac0tadrsugrdyacyfij0qsdaaiieiqbeypweh5jxtyszaqbmxyadd8kqaoqcti8cxfz5cgrbdyruzd6auifniihow1qquccbfxjmlm7qftgiionzheyuagwiads=

How do i add a website icon to my desktop to eliminate typing my way there each time? .


Another way to do this is a little more complicated, but works just as well - if not better.
Select the icon for your internet browser already on your desktop. Copy the icon and paste it onto your desktop.
Now right-click on this new icon and click "Properties"
Click on the "Target" field, there will text in quotation marks in this field. At the end of the quotation mark, add a space after the last mark and then type in the internet address you want your new shortcut to go to (i.e. "C:Program FilesMozilla Firefox irefox.exe" www.examplesite.com), when Firefox is your browser. Now click "OK" in the dialog box.
Go ahead and change the name of this new shortcut to whatever you want. When you double-click this link, it will open up your website!

Updating Firefox


It should upgrade. If you look under Help it show show check for upgrades. When you run this it should show you if there are any upgrades available.

Next check under Tools then Options. This will pull up a new window. Click on advanced tab (right side upper) this will show you what it checks for upgrades. Firefox and Upgrades should be checked. Just under that is how it should handle the upgrades. To have it check and install automatically you should have the Automatically download and install button marked. Hit OK and it should now update automatically when you start Firefox.

It is possible that the older version has a problem with the update section. If everything was set right and it still won;t work then just go to the firefox download page and download the latest version. That should install and fix everything as well as get you up to the latest version. If you do this don't forget to save off your favorites Under your Bookmarks and then Organize there is a Import and backup option. This link should take you to the help page. You may not need this but better safe then annoyed.
