When I export my bookmarks, their date created isn't preserved and after importing they aren't in the right order
User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.2; WOW64; rv:22.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/22.0 (Beta/Release) Build ID: 20130618035212 Steps to reproduce: Make a bunch of bookmarks over the past few years. Export my bookmarks to HTML file using the backup/export feature built into firefox. Actual results: After importing the bookmarks back into any browser and then organize the bookmarks by date created, they are all completely out of order and the date shows the day when I exported them rather than the day the bookmark was created. A few bookmarks were in the correct order but the majority all had the day set on them when I exported my bookmarks. Now I am pretty screwed. Expected results: Upon exporting my bookmarks they should have had their original date created dates preserved in the HTML backup. That way when you import the bookmarks back into a browser (including firefox) they would all be in the correct order so you can sort your bookmarks.
I'm not sure how this may happen, but unless you found the wrong dates in the html file, it's likely a bug in whatever browser you used to import, we do store the ADD_DATE value in bookmarks.html according to the spec for that format.
