A mind is a terrible thing to waste. Mine has wandered off and I'm out looking for it.

I'm sorry, but what's in this posting is Greek to me. I'm new with Firefox. I have no idea what a bookmarklet is! There are some sites, like Yahoo, that I want Firefox to remember my logins. A simplification or step-by-step would be great!!!

Thanks!

^It's like a bookmark, but it's a piece of code. Drag it to your bookmarks toolbar, and click on it when you need to have a password remembered.

I know what the bookmark's tool bar is. A piece of code! I right click on the bookmark's tool bar and it wants a URL. I am afraid I am still lost here. Sorry!!!! Been using IE for too many years.


EDIT: Never mind. I figured it out. That little gray box in the article is what I needed to drag up on the bookmark tool bar. For future reference, you might say this is what to do!
