Bring back the Sort feature that was present in Netscape 3. I cannot see any ad vantage of speed or access to bookmarks via the removal of the Sort feature.
I guess this is a feature request.
I assume you're referring to the "Sort Bookmarks" feature I see under the Item menu of the "Go To Bookmarks" window in the 3.04 UI. In Nav4 we had View-->Sort Ascending/Descending menu items in the equivalent UI. Don't know what the plans are for Nav5, but I assume we have something similar planned and that this is just a feature not implemented yet. Marking [FEATURE], setting to M15, and reassigning to johng, the Bookmarks PM.
Please don't make this too easy to hit by accident. Or at least make it easily undoable. I try to keep my bookmarks organized logically, and sorting them alphabetically would be catastrophic.
Everything possible should be undoable.
Please make this sort feature work. The sort feature in 4.x was basically useless.

I am cc'ing German Bauer on this since he has a UI spec on how this should work. Also assigning to slamm since I think he is the engineer on Don's team who will implement this (but I might be wrong).
Move to M16 for now ...
resolving as fixed, last I checked we can sort bookmarks several different ways now.
