Creating Internet Shortcuts - Firefox

You know those sites that you visit over and over again? You may already have bookmarked those sites, or listed them under favourites.But, an even faster option is to have a link on your browser bar so all you have to do is one click to get to the page you want. The only catch is that this nifty trick only works with Firefox. Most people still use Internet Explorer as their internet browser, but I highly recommend Firefox. It's free, it's faster, and it attracts less viruses. To get Firefox, simply go to and follow the instructions. It won't take more than a minute to download and install.

Here's how to create those easy shortcuts:
1. Go to the site that you want and highlight the URL:

2. Put your mouse on the URL or the little icon on the left of the URL, if there is one - in this case the little orange "E" icon:

3. Hold down your left mouse button and drag the URL down to the bar right under it. You can see in the picture below that it now has a button that says "Etsy::magpienest::" and if I click on that, it will bring me straight to that page.
