    I am having a problem adding some sites to my Favorites. Some work normally and some I get the message that "access is denied". Anyone know of an easy fix for this problem?

    If you accidentally deleted a the folder called "Favorites" in the Favorites section you will get
    Access Denied --- simply make a new Folder with the name "Favorites."
