The problem Oki describes is real, though: I don't believe there's any way to "save" without closing mozilla. This means that some data (the bookmarks) can't be saved without losing other data (the "state" of the session: open tabs, "back" and "forward" history, etc.) I'd say this would be an appropriate issue to file in bugzilla (if it's not already there, of course). good times, Vineet -- http://www.doorstop.net/ -- --Nick Moffitt A: No. Q: Should I include quotations after my reply?
