Sorry, there's no preference for sorting in that manner. Sort by Name doesn't account for the most visited, it's a straight alpha sort per folder. The Most Visited folder, on the Bookmarks Toolbar, is actually a separate algorithmic calculation based upon how often a bookmarked website is visited, and I believe that calculation includes all pages visited at that domain based upon the browsing history.

Guess I didn't ask the right question. How do I sort by name? Also, how do I learn about such things other than asking on line? In other words, "Where is the 'book' ?"

Bookmarks are sorted between separators. So if you have them in one big list then put your favorite bookmarks at the top and the other below separated by a separator and sort them alphabetically. You can only sort folders in Firefox 3 versions. See http://kb.mozillazine.org/Sorting_and_rearranging_bookmarks_-_Firefox
