Favorite Folder not working properly

hello all:
Am new here but also seeking help. Recently when opening Favorites to put in a link it studders and shakes and I cannot access any folders. It goes to Favorites instead of the folder I chose for it to go in.
Any help would be appreciated.
Have a great day!

Use less quirky browsers. If you still want to use IE browser engine you can use MaxThon3. Using MaxThon or Firefox or chrome I can drag the url from the AddressBar to the desktop, a folder or even drop it in EditpadLite7 text editor. In fact I use various text files to categorize groups of urls and load a group of them with a browser instead of using tab session save. I have a freebie that exploits this technique that also has a filter so only urls containing the filter word(if you type one) will open. Search Browser Bunch on this page if you want to try it

I've always avoided wireless. I use PS/2 wired keyboard and mouse.. also wired network. Well in my case I'm locked in since I use a kvma switch to share mouse/keyboard/speakers etc.. with 2 PCs.

Perhaps your mouse needs a new battery or perhaps the switches are dirty. If the battery is good but the switches seem intermittent, you could try taking the mouse apart and spraying them good with contact cleaner. Worked wonders for my Logitech bluetooth mouse.
