Currently when sorting in Manage Bookmark, it only affects the display in Manage Bookmark. There is no way of really sorting the bookmark besides arranging the bookmark by drag-n-drop in Manage Bookmark. I'd like to be able to sort each folder individualy: - Where I can right click on a folder and select sort bookmark in folder by name or by date or whatever. - That would mean that the sort only affects that particular folder. - This sort should affect the bookmark menu, personal toolbar, bookmark sidebar panel and should be saved.
That would be really nice.
Marking NEW to get it off our radar.

This should only be done if we get the ability to open individual bookmarks folders in their own windows. In the main bookmarks window, folders should always follow the sort pattern used by the root folder -- anything else would be extremely confusing.
This doesn't have need subfolders opened in a new window. It only need to have effect when viewing in unsorted mode.
mpt: this bug is about the bookmarks menu, not the manage bookmarks window. See also bug 70571.

Not sure if this duplicates or extends the original description. The bookmark sort options being discussed (Sort by Name, Sort by Date Created) should appear in the context menu when you right-click on a folder on the "Personal Toolbar"
Sorting in the actual datasource is the easiest way to ensure that a sort is applied across all UI that hold bookmarks, be that outliner, tree, menu, etc

Sort order could be a Property of a bookmark folder (sorted/unsorted). This would be better than a one-time sort because new links (added via drag+drop or "file bookmark") would be sorted according to the folder's preference.

Any update on this bug ? Earlier, I was using IE to manage book marks and would export from IE, improt to mozilla. I always had my bookmarks sorted that way, but since I now use mozilla exclusively, I have lost the ability to sort my bookmarks. Would really appreciate help in this area. Thanks

I'm using Mozilla 1.2b.I have gone into the Bookmarks menu/Manage Bookmarks. Here, I have the ability to request that bookmarks be sorted but the command does nothing. Even after I have selected a set of bookmarks to sort - Nada effect.

Currently (Moz 1.2) there is no way (that I can find) of sorting bookmarks which live in folders created inside My Personal Toolbar folder. In IE, the analogous "Links" bar/folder/subfolders where extremely easy to sort/manage -- you simply clicked on the folder name to open it, then right-click and choose "Sort by Name." Not being able to do this in Mozilla makes managing one's ever growing bookmarks nearly impossible. I would like to see the ability to sort without having to enter Manage Bookamrks.

I would agree that would be a neat thing
You mean in Firefox? It's already fixed in the suite and is also available as an extension in Firefox.
