Prevent accidental folder dragging in Safari Web Browsers
I saw a complaint over on VersionTracker that when you put a folder in the bookmarks bar, and then try to access it quickly by clicking and then dragging down, Safari thinks you want to drag the folder off the Bookmarks bar instead of accessing one of the items inside the folder.

I wasn't having that problem, and here's why: if you actually click on the arrow to the right of the folder name, Safari will always assume that you want to access an item inside the folder. But if you click on any other place on the button, you'll have to wait for about half a second for the menu to open before dragging to an item in the list.

A click-release immediately pops up the menu ;)

What about Bookmarks Menu?
Authored by: tomem on Jan 11, '03 08:16:22AM

Is it possible to put a folder in the Bookmarks Menu? I favor extreme minimization of toolbars, and would like to be able to do this, but can't seem to find the way...

Thanks for any tips...

Pretty easy, once you accept that folders can't be dropped on, but their listing can...

Just click on the "Show all bookmarks" button, go to "bookmarks bar", the first on the top, and then add the favorites folder you want.


Let's get rid of IExplorers. Let the Safari begin!
