    Running Windows 7 HP 64 bit. Firefox browser. Currently have well over 300 bookmarks arrayed across the top of the Firefox screen. Do this many bookmarks affect Firefox the loading speed when opening the browser?

    If so I could transfer the majority of them, seldom used, to a document.

    They're not going to slow down your FF loading speed.

    If you want to move some bookmarks out of FF, you can export them to a single HTML file by clicking on the Bookmarks icon. Then go to Bookmarks, Show All Bookmarks. Look under the Import and Backup tab.

    Thanks for that info. If they don't affect loading of FF, I'll leave them there.

    You have all those Bookmarks in the wrong Bookmark folder [Favorites]. Move them to another folder (categorized) like [Software] or [Hardware] or [Shopping] for examples.

    Keep links in [Favorites] only for sites you use the most.

    Not sure where you mean- these bookmarks are in the Bookmarks bar along the top of the FF screen, and are all categorized by topic, etc.

    Nah, they're just "in waiting". So Slowpoke, It would be akin to "I have Jim Nabors |Cd's stashed in every nook and cranny in my car. Will that affect the performance of my car" Storage does not equal performance in this regard.

    Side note: I'm going to have to examine why Jim Nabors popped into my head when writing this reply :think:

    Cindy will be proud of my apt use of such :bunny_smile:

    I just wrote my reply and reconsidered.

    Are you saying you have a few (dozens)? of internet sites that automatically open when you open Firefox?

    No, they only open in the usual way, when I want one to open.

    Re the Jim Nabors comment- he does have an almost operatic voice, but my own taste runs to stuff that was popular in the 1930's, 40's, 50's- Harry James, Jo Stafford, Patti Page, Benny Goodman, Artie Shaw, Glenn Miller, etc. and dozens more- from an era when musicians played or sang actual music, and didn't have to "wow" the audience with a series of thumps, bangs, and yowls, or kill a chicken on the stage or suchlike to disguise the fact that they are in no sense of the word, musicians.
