How do I configure Bookmark Buddy to work with my web browser?
When you first install Bookmark Buddy (v3.5.5 and later) it automatically selects optimal settings for any of the following browsers already installed on your computer:
If you install a browser after installing Bookmark Buddy, go to Bookmark Buddy's browser preferences and click on Look for installed browsers.
For Bookmark Buddy to open bookmarks in a new tab you will need to change a setting in Firefox: go to the Tools menu and select Options; click on Tabs; by Open links that open in a new window in select New tab. It is a limitation in Firefox that bookmarks will only open in accordance with this preference, ignoring Bookmark Buddy's instruction to Open in new window or Open in frontmost window. The best compromise is to set the Firefox preference to open bookmarks in a new tab, then when you want to re-use a tab, drag a bookmark onto it (see below).

Please contact me if you would like support added for any browser not listed above.
Drag and Drop
You can drag and drop bookmarks between Bookmark Buddy / URL Organizer and any web browser: click on a bookmark title and drag it onto the web browser window; or click on the URL in the browser's address bar and drag it onto Bookmark Buddy / URL Organizer. (You can use the application hot key to bring Bookmark Buddy / URL Organizer to the front as you drag a bookmark.)
Configuration settings for URL Organizer
All other browsers tested support only dragging and dropping bookmarks to/from URL Organizer (see above).
