I suspected that was the case but didn't bother to test that behaviour
so didn't mention it. Plus I didn't see the need to create a sub-
folder if all you were going to do was dump everything into the same
one anyhow. Just as well dump everything at the root and dispense
with having to navigate to the sub-folder to see your bookmarks.
Either way, it still does what it always did. Not clear on what it is
Sherry wants to do that she believes she no longer can do.
