How can I save my SORTED bookmarks? As soon as I restart, all sorts are gone.

I can sort my entire bookmark list by name, but then when I start Firefox again, they are all mixed up again! I want all the FOLDERS sorted so I can find them easier. Now the list has folders, then some urls not in folders, more folders, etc. several times.

Chosen solution

So the instructions to sort the folders:

  1. Open the Bookmark sidebar
  2. Right-click the Bookmarks Menu folder and select Sort by Name

To keep them sorted, in the past add ons have been recommend:

PlacesSort is really old, but may still be applicable here.

really? years past when i sorted my bookmarks i thought they kept but now they don't. i never had an extension/addon to keep the sort before. firefox cannot be this lame?

the firefox help page i saw above this thread on how to sort doesn't even mention the sort doesn't save. please, we're not idiots. what use is the sort if it doesn't save? or is this only happening to mac firefox? 38.0.5.

thanks guigs2 for a work around!
