I can't get to work for me! The 'pop-up' and 'post' buttons in my tool bar open with IE and I think this is causing problems. Is there a way to get them to open with Mozilla instead of IE? No problems happen if I click the post method from my saved (mozilla) bookmarks, that works perfectly, but if possible I'd like to be able to click on my toolbar.. I can't find any help for, at least not for this problem, not even with a google search. I'm hoping someone here will know what to do. I'd really like to use Thanks!

EXTENDED DESCRIPTION OF PROBLEM, you don't neccesarily need to read it:
When I click 'save', whether using the 'pop-up' or the 'post' method from my tool bar, I get an Internet Explorer page that reads "The page cannot be displayed". Mozilla Firefox is supposed to be my browser. And I suspect that the problem relates to this IE/Mozilla thing, but I'm barely know anything about either one

If I then click Refresh, I am sent to My page, again on IE, but there is only ONE bookmark item listed (It always lists only ONE because each time I attempt to add another the first one is replaced by the new one). My tags are present, but when clicked there are no bookmarks listed. The same thing happens when I open with Mozilla.

Then to compound the mess, if I click my bookmarked link I get this message: only http, https, news, and ftp schema urls are allowed right now. if you have a really good reason i should allow another one, please email This happens with EVERY bookmark I make - for instance, or or

Try making sure your default browser is set to Firefox:
In Internet Explorer, choose , Tools, Options, Programs tab, and uncheck the checkbox for "IE should check to see whether it is the deafult browser."

In Mozilla Firefox, choose , Tools, Options, General (default), Default Browser. Click Set Default Browser to make Firefox the default browser.

Email me your userid if you wnat me to check out the link.

Response by poster: I replied earlier but guess I forgot to hit 'post' after preview.

I checked and my default browser is set properly. And I emailed you. Thanks very much for your help.
