Version 3.0 435.0 KiB Works with Firefox for Android 57.0 and later, Firefox 57.0 and later

This version is a port to use Web Extensions in order to work with Firefox 57 (Quantum).

Version 2.10.12 45.2 KiB Works with Firefox 38.0a1 - 56.*

Added support for Pale Moon 27.1.0b1 or newer.

Version 2.10.11 45.1 KiB Works with Firefox 38.0a1 - 56.*

This release is a fix for release 2.10.10. The "then_sort_by" preference accidentally got changed from a Integer type to a String type. This caused Firefox to crash on startup because the add-on was expecting a number but was getting text.

Before installing this new version, be sure to remove release 2.10.10 first and then restart Firefox.

Also, you should probably reset your preferences for this add-on:
1) Enter "about:config" in the address bar.
2) Confirm that you are fine with making changes.
3) Search for "extensions.sortbookmarks@bouanto"
4) Right-click on each preference and then select "reset" from the menu.
5) Restart Firefox and then install the new version.

Alternatively, you can refresh Firefox, but this will affect all add-ons:
