Favorites in folder in Favorites bar not in own order after expanding favorites bar. RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I have folders in the Favorites bar and I have ordered the items withint the folder by drag and drop according to their importance to me.

    But I have a high number of favorites and all of them can not be shown in the normal window. So I have to click on the arrows on the right sideof the Favorites Bar to expand and see all my favorites. When I do that and click on a folder, the order of the items is alphabetic and not in the order I had arranged before, which makes more difficult to me to find the links I want.

    It has different behavior when the folder is directly visible on the window and when the favorites bar has to be extended.

    I have IE9, can that be fixed, or has been fixed in later versions?

    Thanks, Julio
