You just can't set the Bookmarks to sort by Name, if you use the Bookmark
manager it works, but after you exit, the Bookmarks are back to random
order..

Any know how to fix this..?

These are Imported IE6 Favorites..


On 2 separate PC's

I'll agree here, in so far that the bookmark list is not altered by a sort
in the book mark mamager. The list in the bookmark manager does stay
sorted.

So, if this is a problem to you then, hop on over to mozilla.org and check
out if this is known, if not add it to the list.

Bugs exposed in Open Source Software do get attention.

Of course one could get the code and find out why this is happening, find
a fix and then tell mozilla.org about the fix.

Yes the Quality Feedback agent is part of the installation options, it
can be disabled.

Bugs in Firefox [and Mozilla and other moz.org progs] are tracked using the
Bugzilla database.

<http://bugzilla.mozilla.org/>

In answer to the OP's question. Yes it's normal

This is not the place to report bugs about Netscape-branded products.

When this happened to me, it ended being cause by a hardware failure
(bad motherboard).
