    I have all of my folders.
    Although I've just noticed that they are not in the same order as on my desktop. Which is a shame as I had a 6-year old, and long forgotten, ticket open about the desktop bookmark ordering not working over sync, but closed it last week as it now looked OK. Might need to track it down....
    And it puts all sub-folders ahead of individual entries.
    But it's certainly not flat.

    Just done a sync now. Everything now sorts OK (although folders are always still ahead of individual items - I'll live with that).

    But back then software got finished.
    We didn't have this constant stream of updates and bug fixes that brake nearly as much stuff as they fix.

    I have tried Firefox again.
    It's the Firefox bookmark import that wasn't working as I expected. I think I have all my Firefoxs on Windows and Android syncing in a sensible way now.

    Of course there's still stuff Firefox handles wrongly, it's just different stuff from what Chrome handles wrongly so I'll be running them both for a while to see which wins my favor.

    Now all I need is a way to properly and completely sync bookmarks between Chrome and Firefox.

    What software were you using in 1990? That was still exactly the same in, say, 2000? (IIRC I did have an executable I built in 1995 that I was still running in ~2008, but I'd say that was unusual, and it was not on MS Windows...).
    The reason there were no updates was that there was no way to get one to you apart from a 3.5" floppy through the post.

    Of course there's still stuff Firefox handles wrongly, it's just different stuff from what Chrome handles wrongly so I'll be running them both for a while to see which wins my favor.
    And there are web pages that are very badly written, perhaps making incorrect assumptions that I'll be viewing a page in full-screen mode (I have a multi-taking windowing system - why would I routinely run something in a "just me" mode).
