Who can make it possible for bookmarks to be encrypted by PGP in mozilla? Mozilla or PGP? This is a very desirable feature and something that IE provides already.

Desirable? Why?
I don't see a need to hide bookmarks.

Encrypit it then - a single file - should not be hard to do eventhough I understand that you, as always, have a demand that Mozilla should be able to do just about anything you can come up with out of the box.

How do you encrypt it as a single file? If I open the sidebar to the bookmarks tab and right click I do not get an option on the menu for PGP like I do with IE. How difficult is this to implement into the code? What's required to make it happen?

Download a program that does it for you, and encrypt the SINGLE FILE that is bookmarks.html in your profile.

It reads like you mean by doing this ALL the bookmarks would be encrypted. But usually I wish to encrypt only a few select bookmarks not the entire group.

The fact remains that the bookmarks are stored in a single file, bookmarks.html
unless you can figure out how to encrypt part of a file, I don't see it happening.

In IE, each Favorite is saved a separate file on your hard drive. Makes it simple to encrypt just the ones you want to.... though why on earth you would need/want to encrypt Favorites or Booksmarks is beyond me.

Here's why I wish bookmarks.html was encrypted.
I keep my userid/password in the bookmark entry, so that I only have to reference a bookmark's detail to get the login info if I forget it.
I wouldn't need to do this if the Seamonkey Password Manager truly allowed management of password, but it doesn't. It does not allow manual addition or editing of passwords.
Therefore, it would be great to make sure the bookmarks.html file were encrypted.
