My list of folders in bookmarks will sort by name but does not stay that way once I close bookmarks. I've looked at several things online for solutions but none have helped. Most suggestions give instructions to sort one particular folder. I am trying to sort the entire list of folders, which I have been able to do, I just can't find a way to keep them in that order once I close bookmarks. I even added an Auto-sort Add-on which didn't help. How do I save the order of the list once I've sorted?

The Views menu in the Bookmarks Manager (Bookmarks > Show All Bookmarks) is for viewing the bookmarks in a different sorting order (hence the name Views) and doesn't sort bookmarks permanently. Clicking the column header does the same sorting for viewing purposes only. If you want to sort bookmarks then you need to right-click a folder and use "Sort By Name" to sort that folder. You can't right-click individual bookmarks to sort them, only folders can be sorted this way.

I have been able to permanently sort the entire list of bookmarks in the past (recently). What has changed? It's difficult to believe that most of my list is alphabetical, because I successfully sorted it, but I can't get the new bookmarks to stay sorted permanently, also.
