    Hi Boardies.

    Okay so I'm using the default browser. Tried Dolphin, but I uninstalled it after running out of space.......again.

    Is there anyway of changing the order of the bookmarks? I know you can in Dolphin, but as I added the paged I most visit first, they're now at the bottom of the bookmark list, and I'm sick of having to scroll through them all to get to the main sites I like.

    I'm lazy like that LOL.

    Thanks in advance.

    Andy

    When you go into your bookmarks list just press menu and it brings up a sort by option. You can then choose mostly used.

    download an app called BookmarkSB from the market. you can use it to edit the order of your bookmarks and then your preferred order will show up in the default browser.

    Thanks for the tip Evil, I've just realised that. It seems silly that the browser doesn't automatically remember your preferred sort method.

    It's pretty baffling to me how bad the bookmarks are on the stock phone. You'd think of all the things Google could get right for Android, anything related to web browsing should be spot on - I'd like drag and drop ordering, naming, folders and the ability to change the thumb to an image of my choosing by default.

    I'm hoping Firefox's sync ability makes an official Android appearance soon, but I have several hundred bookmarks in Firefox organised in several levels of folders, just dumping that on the screen as a huge list would be rubbish.

    I second BookmarkSB, this is the only way of managing your bookmarks. The ordering built in to the desire browser doesn't work and keeps resetting
