Hi, I would like to know the following:
1)How do I import bookmarks from IE?
2)The imported IE bookmarks under Firebird is not the complete bookmarks I store in IE, how can I fix it?
3)Is there a way for me to arrange the bookmarks in alphabetic orders?
4)When I tried to add a seperator between 2 bookmarks, it alwalys ends up at the wrong place and the thing is I cannot move the seperator to any location as I wish.

Could someone please offer any assistance?
Thx.

Jack

If the automatic import isn't to your liking, here's how to import bookmarks from IE.

Open up IE. Go to File, Import and Export. Hit Next, and then choose Export Favorites. It'll ask you for a directory to save the exported favorites file. Pick one. When done, open up Firebird. Go to Bookmarks, Manage Bookmarks. Go to File, Import. Select the file you saved earlier. That's it.

Hope that helps.

to get your favorites in alphabetical order, go to Bookmarks -> Bookmark Manager. under the View menu item, choose Sort By Name.

be warned, however, that you can't move bookmarks out of this order as long as you have them sorted. for example, you can't have a favorite bookmark you want at the top, but all the rest sorted.

Thanks for the suggesetion but the sorting does not seem to work.
The sorting works well in the bookmark manager but it does not appear the way it is when I try to use the bookmarks

Another issue I wish to bring up is that sometimes the bookmark is empty when I move my mouse over it!! I have to restart the browser. Any suggestion?

Firebird version 0.61.

When I try to import bookmarks nothing happens. No dialog to select the file, nothing. Dammit, it's broke! Anybody else having this problem?

check out http://mbs.mozdev.org for a program which can sort Mozilla/Firebird/Netscape formatted bookmark.html files... i'm coming out with a GUI for it pretty soon too!
