Can anybody tell me what Firefox's default order is for sorting bookmarks when doing a search in the sidebar or when clicking on a 'Recent Tag' folder?

In both cases the bookmark results are listed in an order that I cannot determine (it's not by date, name, last visited, number of visits, date modified, date added etc.)

Is there some other means by which 'relevance' is being determined to affect the order in which bookmarks are listed in search results and tag folders?

I will often get very similar bookmarks listed at opposite ends of the results, or very frequently used sites buried at the bottom of the list with rarely used ones at the top.

Sure, with regards to tag folders I can just click one of the column headings to get a more logical and predictable sort order, but in sidebar search results there is no such option and you have to just put up with whatever random order Firefox chooses to display matching results.

On 2/5/10 I was in the process of downloading an update for Firefox Version 1.5.0.12 (2007050813).

The download got corrupted while downloading, and the update failed. No reason was given.

I can't get Firefox to try to find the update again, and download it. I even have it set up to automatically search for updates. It isn't doing that, either.

I can't even get Firefox Setup to run again.

I scanned my computer for viruses and spyware, and nothing was found.

My computer runs on Windows Millennium.

How do I fix all this?

Thanks for your time, and assistance.

For us tech luddites-- each launch of Firefox reminds: "Urgent" the old browser is no longer virus protected and urges an upgrade to 4.0--now.

I have already checked 4.0 upgrade resource requirements to confirm that 4.0 is not compatible or barely functional on older platforms.

Without changing your Home Page or buying a new system-- can this upgrade message be stopped/eliminated/purged?
