    favicons and sorting Bookmarks (Netscape 7.0)

    I decided to try Netscape again after not using it since version 4.76. The new version is a vast improvement over former versions but I'm having a couple of problems.

    1) Getting the "favicons" to display in the Bookmarks menus. The option to have them enabled is checked in Preferences. I really can't find anything else that would effect these. Can someone offer any information concerning displaying "favicons" in the Bookmarks?

    2) Sorting my list of Bookmarks by name. That item is also checked in the "Manage Bookmarks" features. I've tried checking some of the other choices but nothing happens with those either?

    3) Actually there is a 3rd problem: <img src=/S/laugh.gif border=0 alt=laugh width=15 height=15> To change the Theme, I have to do it through the Preferences. Using the "View/Apply Theme" also doesn't work.

    Hi Jeff:
    I don't have an answer, but I note that previous versions of Netscape have never been able to sort bookmarks. One of their biggest flaws IMHO.

    The favicons do not show in the bookmarks, but in the location bar . I am using Netscape 7.01 and think it is excellent. Sorting bookmarks is not a main feature, but you can drag and drop folders or individual bookmarks to a different spot . You can do this from the bookmark sidebar. I am viewing the favicon for Woody's Lounge right now in the location bar. You can drag and drop it to create a link to the specific URL.
