Looking for info on how to keep the bookmarks order in my Favorites Bar using Internet Explorer 9.

I want the bar to maintain the order of bookmarks that I set. After a time IE9 alphabetizes the bookmarks.

Thanks.

    Use Bookmark Flash to manage your bookmarks instead of the original one for IE .

    Hey, Mike's recommendation sorted my out IE problem (albeit vers 8). I was going mad trying to find out which setting in CCleaner was causing the Favourites Bar to re-organise itself into alphabetical order

    May thanks

      It certainly didn't help me.  I have the same problem and I'm not running any programs I didn't have before upgrading from IE8 to IE9.  And I've tried sorting from 4 places and re-setting IE, but they won't stay put.  Odd thing, the items in the favorite bar (Links) stay in order, as do the items IN the folders that are under favorites.  However, the folders and the rest of the favorites keep reordering to alpha with each new session, and sometimes with just a new tab.  I checked in Internet Options in Tools, and a few other settings dialog boxes in Vista, but nothing works.  Is it time to revert to IE8 or switch to Chrome?  Any help would be greatly appreciated.

      David

    Is it possible you are running CCleaner?
    If you do so make sure the advanced option "Menu Order Cache" is not selected.
