    as far as i can see outside of the organise bookmarks window, you can only sort by name. you can move them about to have them in whatever order you want though

    moving them single take long time when you have alot of bookmarks.

    I've been using Firefox for almost 3 years. Organizing them by date added wouldn't do any good if I wanted to search for, say 'IE7'. So I have made up folders by subjects>> For instance, Computer> Browsers> Firefox.

    That means I can search by Computer, Browser or Firefox, depending on how I want to narrow the search. If you set up the folders, then open the Bookmarks> Organize Bookmarks, you can drag any Bookmark on the right screen to the folder on the left.

    I don't even see an option to sort by date. Is there some reason you think they would best serve you if sorted by date? Wouldn't you then have to remember which date you saved the Bookmark in order to bring it up?

    tpw, you know when you open the Bookmarks, there is a place to put a search word in so you don't have to go through the Bookmark list. How do you use the if your Bookmarks are in by date?
