Anyone else come across the very irritating problem that if you import bookmarks into Firefox 3 and then attempt to copy them to a different location in the organiser (such as to the bookmarks toolbar), anything more than one folder deep is lost? Not a problem in Firefox 2. Or I'm being incredibly stupid...

the only work around i see is to copy and paste all the sub folders. could take a while with my collection :)

Hi, in response to your PM, no I have not found an answer. This seems to be a bug of some kind. In the end I just kept my exported bookmarks HTML file for reference and began to recreate the bookmarks from scratch since I had many unneeded ones in there anyway.

yes

don't copy and paste

import the bookmarks then
select the folders you want to move then

organise -> move
