I suppose this is OT for a pclos list, but I don't know where else to ask:
I recently found myself using the big E Internet browser in Windows 7, which i almost never do, and discovered
that instead of (or in addition to?) bookmarks, it has the ability to copy an url to the start menu, from where, if you like, you
can make an icon and put it on the desktop. I couldn't find a bookmark routine, but I did take advantage of the
start menu option, because the url is for a localized weather report, and I'm sure I'll want to look at that often.
So the question: is there any way to do this with Firefox? (Especially in Linux--I very seldom use Windows.)
The weather report is one of several from NOAA, the url is: http://forecast.weather.gov
It will forecast for your
