    My bookmarks are a huge mess. When I used IE, I would go to the folder on the drive to organize them. Now that I use Firefox, I can't do that. I would like to find a program that gives me ease of organizing and will export the bookmarks as individual files, instead of one.

    I'm interested in this: http://bkm.sourceforge.net/en/vbbkm.html but it's old and dead I think. Also I don't think it worked with Firefox.

    I'm not interested in online managers and I don't have a real need for portability. I just want to sort and burn the folder.

    Thanks.

    Don't know about that program, but if all you are looking to do is organize your bookmarks and export them as an HTML file you can do that within Firefox
    >bookmarks
    >organize bookmarks, this will open an "explorer" type interface that will allow you to add folders, nest folders, drag and drop the contents. Pretty much all you need to organize a mess of unsorted bookmarks.

    once organized all you have to do to burn it is click on import and export at the top then choose export as html. This will give you a file with the same hierarchy that you can view in any web browser (or import onto another computers firefox if you wish)
