Question IE style "Links Bar" with Mozilla


Hi,

I used to use I.E 6.0, but now I am trying out Mozilla 1.41 as a web browser.

How can I get a IE style "Links bar" onto the Mozilla toolbar?

Also, is it just me, or does Mozilla load web pages slightly slower than I.E 6.0?

I think Mozilla extensions are for Mozilla Firebird rather than Mozilla 1.41.

I tried downloading Firebird, and the "Links Bar" extension, but it doesnt seem to do what I want.

All I need is a button on the browser toolbar, and if I click it it shows a list of websites I often go to. It's pretty much the same as "favourites" button, but you can keep it less cluttered.

not sure. i don't see anything in the preferences for configuring the browser's toolbar. the closest thing i can see is to right click the tool bar underneath the navigation buttons toolbar and create a new folder. then go to Bookmarks in the file menu bar and click manage bookmarks. find the Personal Toolbar Folder and expand that. your new folder should be there. you can copy your favorite links into the folder. if you're talking about automatically, then i don't think mozilla has that capability.
