I just did the Windows Updates on my computer. I'm running XP Pro. Updates installed IE 7. When I go to my favorites, all my bookmarks are in alphabetical order. When I click on "Organize bookmarks", I can't seem to change the order to the way I want them. Jeez I hate IE 7. I've used Netscape for years, but it's now no longer supported and I kept getting pop-ups saying to download Firefox or some other browser. No, I don't like Firefox. I liked the way Netscape opened every page with a seperate tab and I could skip back to the third or fourth page back simply by clicking on its tab. I thought you could do that with IE or Firefox, but apparently not. I spent 2 hours last night trying to configure both and got extremely frustrated. Any ideas? Thanks!

Both IE and Firefox are tabbed browsers. You need to set up in the Options on how you want each browser to handle links. Either they will open in a new window or tab depending on how you set the options. How links that are clicked in an email or on a page can be set to open in a new tap. Each browser also has the keyboard short cuts for tabbing through the pages opened.

Bookmarks can be set in whatever order you want in Firefox and I'm sure the same for IE. All this is done from the Bookmarks Menu, Organize Bookmarks. You also can open every bookmark page in its own tab by right-clicking the folder you set it in. Lots more. You need to learn to use a browser before condemning it. Also, IE 8 is out if you want to use it.
