    How do you arrange firefox folders in abc order? [​IMG]

    As can be seen from my snip, my folders are not in alphabetical order. Is there a way to do this? I can arrange the files in the folders that way, but they don't stay...next time I go back they're in random order again. On my Vista desktop, I can arrange both folders and files in ABC order and they stay that way. Thanks in advance for your assistance.

    :)

    Does Edge browser have a bookmark manager?

    Thank you for your feedback on this.

    That clarifies it a little, but it still lacks the ability to arrange items within folders to one's convenience, let alone folders within folders in a way similar to how it could be done with earlier versions of Internet Explorer or now (still) with Chrome,
    Firefox, and Safari. Hopefully a third party will come to our help as Microsoft does not seem to be interested in revising the bookmark feature.

  3. Need instructions on use of Windows 10 Photos

    That's been an issue since Windows 7. Basically, you have to add Auto Arrange so you can uncheck it.

    Take your pick.

    Note: You have to do the sorting in the parent folder and not a Library folder.

    Under bookmarks in the menu at the top of Firefox....

    Open "show all bookmarks"............in the left panel.....right click on "book marks menu"..........select "sort by name"........

    This should work for you

    This puts the files in the folders in ABC order, but not the folders. There's no option in the left column under "organize" for sort by name. This only puts the contents of the folders in order, not the folders.

    I just moved some of my folders around randomly to get them out of order............then followed the guide I gave you above and it does put the Folders back in alphabetical order...........

    Make sure in the left panel.....right click on "book marks menu"

    Please try it again.......go step by step....you might have mixed a step up by mistake.....

    I hope this does work for you....
