150 Save a Web Page

When you find an especially interesting or helpful web page, you can bookmark it to make it easier for you to revisit that page at a later time. For example, you might bookmark a favorite news site so that you can check what's happening each morning. If you happen to have multiple tabbed windows open , you can quickly bookmark each of them.

You can save your favorite bookmarks to the Bookmarks toolbar. Each bookmark added to this toolbar appears as a button; click a button to display the associated web page. Thus, the Bookmarks toolbar allows you to visit your favorite places on the Web quickly and easily. The Bookmarks toolbar normally appears just under the Navigation bar; to display it, choose View, Toolbars, Bookmarks from the menu.

This task shows you how to bookmark a web page. You can also bookmark a live feed, such as updated RSS news headlines. Just navigate to the web page containing the live feed and click the Live Bookmark icon (an orange sound horn), located at the right end of the Status bar on pages that contain a live feed. Select the live feed you want to bookmark from the list that appears. You might be prompted to select the program you want to process the feed, such as NewzCrawler or Sage.


Bookmarks created in another web browser (such as Internet Explorer) are automatically imported into Firefox when you install Firefox. If your existing bookmarks were not imported, choose File, Import to import them now.
