Steps to reproduce: 1. Enter file:/// in location field. 2. Drag bookmark icon to personal toolbar folder 3. Open the new folder by clicking on it. Expected results: The files and subdirectories in / appear in alphabetical order, files on bottom. Actual results: The files and subdirectories appear in no apparent order, except files at bottom. That's not a big problem with small directories, but if I want to access a new html file I've just saved in some cluttered folder, finding it in the unsorted pull-down menu takes ages, and since contents of the directory are generated dynamically and don't appear in any other view, I can't sort them elsewhere (besides, great fun, manually sorting all directories on the harddisk...) Please someone check other OS and eventually change OS field accordingly?

Let me rephrase the summary: file:// folders unsortable in personal toolbar Contents of file:// folders can't be sorted even manually, by dragging them up or down. (drag doesn't work) I'm fully aware such a feature wouldn't make much sense as position of every (often very volatile) file would have to be remembered. Since contents of the directories file:// links point do NOT appear inside bookmarks.html there is no obvious way how to remember different sort methods for their subdirectories, but "alphabetical" should be left as the sensible default, as their contents aren't fully user-controllable unlike common bookmark folders which are left in initial (dis)order or how the user placed them. Mark as "depends on" instead?
