    Welcome to Mac-Forums!

    Start by repairing permissions, preferably using OnyX Titanium Software for your OS.

    Do you use a keyboard command (Cmd-D), or mouse to the menu bar?

    I know this may seem a bizarre question, but when you try to bookmark a site, are you actively connected to it, and do you have cookies enabled for that site?
    Back in the bad old browser days, and dialup, one could not bookmark a site unless one was connected to it!

    And it is simply not a matter of hitting Add Bookmark Kelly. You do need to manually select where the bookmark is to be placed, Bookmark Menu or Toolbar.

    It sounds like it's not going where you are expecting it to go, rather than not being created at all. Try selecting Bookmarks Menu to bookmark a new page. This should add the bookmark to the bottom of the list. Click on Bookmarks > Show All Bookmarks in the menu bar at the top of your screen. Is it there?

    Try drag and drop from Favorites to the Bookmark folder. Then click Bookmarks > Show All Bookmarks ... what's the display?

    Do saved bookmarks (in Favs folder) show along the top menu bar of Safari?

    What's this talk of "Favorites" in Safari??? Bookmarks can be added to the Bookmarks Menu or the Bookmarks Bar. The latter show up below the Toolbar. The former can hold folders and sub-folders. Normal behavior allows you to place a new bookmark in a sub-folder or in no folder at all.

    OK I have a folder named kelly's favorites, it has subfolders, I can add a bookmark to kelly's favorites but to no subfolders.

    If you don't explain why not, I don't have any clues to work with.
    Take me through what you do, and then what happens...

    When I choose Add Bookmark... I get a small box below the tab bar with the URL and then my choice of location in the form of a drop-down list. Clicking on the up/down arrow allows me to "drill down" as far as I want, to at least three levels. I don't know if my "tree" goes any farther.

    I do the same thing to add a bookmark, the problem is, it lets me add the bookmark, but when i go back to use it again, the bookmark is not there. I have a one to one on Monday, I'm going to see what the apple people say. I'll keep yawl updated. THX for everyone's help.

    When I click the up/down arrow, the folder structure under Bookmarks Menu is completely revealed. Is that the case for you?
