  1. Putting the "star" bookmark this page next to the show your bookmarks is bad, and there no more asking if you want to add this bookmark. I have had this version for a couple of days and have already hit the star button 4 or 5 times by accident. I am fed up with these automatic upgrades and would much prefer the previous version that I had.
