Bookmark Site script (http://www.dynamicdrive.com/dynamicindex9/addbook.htm) is not really quite compatible with Firefox like it says.

It does add the bookmark, but when the bookmark is clicked it opens the website in the sidebar, not the main window. Right click on the bookmark and "Load this bookmark in the sidebar" is checked.

Is there any way to fix this? :confused: It's sooo close to being perfect.

edit: oops, sorry, wrong section.

Yep, I'm aware of the problem, though haven't found any documented solution around it yet, unfortunately.

p.s: This definitely constitutes a bug, so right section. :)

I found a solution provided by someone at the following location...


I hope this helps.

I use daniweb's solution for any browser except IE and use "Dynamic Drive's solution for IE.

Hi bob_bharris:
From what I can tell the code posted on Daniweb is no different than the one on DD, so it still has the same problem in FF.

If you right click on the bookmark, its Properties can be modified so that it doesn't open in the sidebar. But I can find no way to do that programmatically.

What I suggest instead is that you write a mini page including key links to your site and use that as the URL that is added by the bookmark script.

As in

if (window.sidebar&&window.sidebar.addPanel) {window.sidebar.addPanel("Jesus Army pages", "http://www.jesus.org.uk/sidebar.htm", "");}

If the head section of that mini page includes the line <base target=_content> then clicks on that mini page will open in the main page of the browser.
