"SortPlaces" is a good sorting substitute for "Bookmark Sync and Sort," for Firefox 3 Rated 4 out of 5 stars
If all you want to do is to alphabetize your bookmarks, then "SortPlaces" is a good substitute for the sorting feature in "Bookmarks Sync and Sort." . After installing 'SortPlaces', check your "Bookmarks" pull-down in Firefox, and you'll see a new selection, "Sort Bookmarks." It has a variety of different types of "Options" you can select, for sorting bookmarks. Take note that the only problem I found with this add-on, is when you launch it, a small pop-up window will appear giving you the status of the sorting process. If your Firefox 3 browser has a lot of bookmarks that need to be sorted, the sorting process will appear to slow down or freeze up. If after a few minutes the pop-up window does not change its status message, click the "Cancel" button, then check if the alphabetical sorting operation was successful in your bookmarks. Most times, the operation to sort was successful... but the pop-up window does not auto-exit after it is done. This is the only problem I've found with the 'SortPlaces' add-on. But to reiterate, if all you need to do is to alphabetize your bookmarks, then this is a 'good' substitute (I didn't say it was "the best," though) for 'Bookmark Sync and Sort' for Firefox 3. (If you can find a better sorter, share it with us).
Works great, but... Rated 3 out of 5 stars
Very convenient way of visually tracking the bookmarks' tree for websites actively opened in the browser. But after I updated to the newer version of Firefox ( 18.104.22.168) and imported back in my usual set of add-ons/extensions, the Column Bookmarks stopped working. and I'm back to using the vertically-arranged row of bookmarking. Don't give up on us, keep debugging it, keep updating it for comparable use for newer versions; you have a very handy add-on here! If it didn't stop working I'd give it the five stars!
