Firefox There are a lot of
Internet web browsers available, but none as configurable, extendable,
or one might say personable
as Mozilla Firefox. It's open source web browsing at it's finest. Mozilla
is a non-profit organization dedicated to making your experience on
the web whatever you want
it to be.
Bookmarks Bookmarking a web page is as simple as selecting "Bookmark This Page" or pressing [Ctrl]+[D] when the web page has loaded. Alternatively, right-click anywhere on the main body of the web page to access drop-down menu selections that include bookmarking (click the "star" icon). Built-in organizing allows you to categorize your bookmarks on the fly (while you're browsing). Hit the "Choose" selection to save in a pre-existing category (C4C loaded-up Firefox with hundreds of categorized bookmarks already), or select "Organize Bookmarks..." to use the "Library" where you can organize and re-organize bookmarks anytime. Backup, restore, import, export, add, delete, rearrange... You can also try one of the many bookmarking add-ons to extend bookmarking capabilities even further.
Search Bar By default, the top search engine is DuckDuckGo. But, this is easily changed and or rearranged with other searches. Click the icon to the left of the search box to switch to one of the other preset options, or choose “Manage Search Engines” to get many more choices. When you begin typing into the search bar, a dropdown menu of filled-in suggestions (based on popular searches from other users as well as your own search history) will appear. If you see one that fits, click it with your mouse.

Junk Mail Thunderbird has extensive, adaptive "junk" mail classification(s). Train Thunderbird to get rid of junk by using the "junk" and "not junk" buttons on incoming emails. Then use the Junk Mail Controls to make the process of moving spam to the junk mail folder automatic. Thunderbird also automatically blocks remote image requests unless and/or until you tell it not to, depending on the sender(s). And Thunderbird warns you when you click on a link in an email that will take you to a different Web site than the one indicated by the URL.
webmail Thunderbird supports POP and IMAP. You'll likely have an easier time using webmail with a web browser like Firefox (see above). To use webmail (AOL, GMail, Hotmail, Libero, mail.com, Yahoo) with Thunderbird, you'll need the WebMail add-on. Or, see more Thunderbird webmail solutions on this page.
