When I import my bookmarks from IE, the top-level bookmarks menu maintains the
same order as in IE.  However, the subfolders within the bookmarks folder do not
maintain the same ordering.  This means sub-subfolders are intermixed with
regular bookmarks in some "random" fashion.

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1.
2.
3.



Expected Results:  
Subfolders within bookmarks should maintain the same order as in IE.
All folders inported from IE are unsorted.
