Another 5 hours to go, before we hlit the stroke of midnight, so chances are I will be asleep when the world ends.

Please don't wake me if something happens.

I've decided to give Chrome a whirl as my browser - its seems much faster than FF to me.

Have you checked if you can drag links intact and by name from Bookmarks into posts here? Last I checked I couldn't and that's a deal-breaker for me.

If not may I ask how you handle that Colin? I need a new solution that doesn't rely on sticking with FF version 12 (last one where it works) and also works at 8F where my links lock up the formatting after I drag one.

Greg : I dragged ^this^ link directly from inside my tutorials bookmark from a different tab straight into this reply. Is that what you mean?

So you dragged it from Bookmarks dropdown menu into the 7F post with it holding it's name so you could edit it if you want? You kinda lost me about a different tab. You were still doing all this in the same tab, right?

Thats correct Greg (except I used a bookmark toolbar, not a list of bookmarks) - by different tab, I mean that I opened SF Tutorials in a different tab at the top of the browser, and just dragged the link straight across into the first tab. I posted a picture straight after I originally replied. Does it make sense?

I need to be able to drag one of 270 Bookmarks from a Menu Bar dropdown into the post text, position and edit it if needed. I can drag several a minute this way while I work without breaking concentration. It's important enough that when Firefox version 12 started turning them into URLS as soon as I dragged them, I couldn't use it any more just because I need the name intact to edit it. But I don't know how long I can stick with v.12 without it growing insecure and old.

I dont' even see a Chrome Bookmark's menu there but if I wanted to give up real estate to the Bookmarks toolbar and it has a dropdown at the end when it fills up, can I drag a bookmark from it into a post intact? Last time I tried it a year or more ago no other browser can do this.

Greg : I'll fill up my bookmark toolbar and test this. Did my picture make sense to you? Did I understand the link dragging that you want to achieve correctly?
