Question about organizing IE9 favorites albhabetically
I arranged my Favorites in my own order and then, I Exported them.
Then I did the following:
Deleted my Favorites and then, I Imported them from the File I had saved.
My Listing Order was lost.
Favorites were listed Alphabetically AGAIN with
the Favorite Folders being Always Above the Individual Favorites!
Is there a Way to prevent it?
I like to have my Favorites listed on my Own Order
(i.e. Not Alphabetically
and Not the Favorite Folders being always above the Individual Favorites).

I dont think there is a way to prevent that. You have to manually rearrange them again, after you import them.
I hope IE Developers will eventually add this Feature to the Next version of IE.

You can try to solve the problem with a naming convention. Start the name of those folders that you want to have on top with a number. A folder named "1Zeta" will be on top of a folder named "Alpha"
I guess I have to do the same with Individual Favorites Inside/Outside Folders

so that they will Not get lost each time I Import them...
I have less than 50 Favorites,
BUT most people I know have more than 100 Favorites.
None of them is willing to Rename
one-by-one (e.g. 1-Favorite C, 2-Favorite A, 3-Favorite D, 4-Favorite B etc.) their Favorites
so that IE can keep the Non-Alphabetical Order
when they Export & Import their Favorites.
IE needs a Flexible Favorites/Bookmarks Manager/Organizer
(like the ones found on other Browsers).
