Create a FF sidebar from a folder of bookmarks?

How can I create FF sidebars that contain only the bookmarks in chosen folders? I'd like to 1. be able to choose one of my folders of bookmarks and create a custom sidebar from it that only shows the bookmarks in that chosen folder 2. have Firefox remember these custom sidebars 3. be able to choose any one of these sidebars as my "current" sidebar at any time 4. be able to create individual buttons to do #3 for each sidebar, and be able to put these buttons on my main toolbar somewhere (like the "blue book with the white star" button on my toolbar that brings up the built-in FF Bookmarks sidebar). Is there a way to do this? (a little more info inside) Thanks [more inside]

I click the back button, and when the previous page loads it loads at the top of the page, not where I had been in the page when I'd scrolled down and clicked the link. [more inside]

Recipe for super-duper website cookies?

Some websites I use log me in automatically (Facebook) with full access to the site. Some automatically log me on, but require PW confirmation if I want to do something that may potentially compromise my security (LinkedIn, Amazon). Some websites demand a login each time I access the page (banking/trading sites; some of which save my login ID, none of which save my PW).I know precious little about this stuff. Cookies, is it?

Is there an add-on that allows text to be written over a website?

Is there an add-on for Internet Explorer or Firefox that would allow me to write text on top of the website and then print the site with the text? I have to search records in an online database and then after printing make notations on them; it'd be very handy if I could type the notations straight from the browser.

Text editor for Chrome

Is there an equivalent plugin for Chrome that duplicates It's All Text for Firefox?

I currently use It's All Text which lets me use vim to do everything that vim can do to the text in a text box but there doesn't seem to be an equivalent for Chrome.

Why does my computer believe that all sites aside from Google Mail and Google Talk do not exist?

Dell running Windows Vista, virus-protected and up-to-date. Firefox 3.6.13 displays GMail and GChat but loads only a blank white page for all other sites; IE gives me "this page cannot be displayed" for every site I checked, including GMail. The admin account (my primary account) is the only account affected; I can log into a guest account and see the entire internet. [more inside]
