    I'm trying to find out how to make a bookmark folder for my dolphin bookmarks OR even better, sync the htc bookmark widget with my dolphin bookmarks. I have astro. Any help would be appreciated.

    I don't know an automated way to populate an (HTC Sense) folder with bookmarks automatically, so I just exported my (desktop) bookmarks, and put it on on my SD card at something like

    /sdcard/bmarks/bookmarks.html

    and then entered in the browser the URL

    file:///sdcard/bmarks/bookmarks.html

    and created an (HTC Sense) bookmark to that.

    That's one idea, anyway.


    When you double-click on a (HTC Sense) bookmark - doesn't it launch your Dolphin browser... where you already have the bookmarks in the first place?

    while using the D/B if you close the tab it will bring up a menu if you tap the star your bookmarks will be there

    Yea when I use the stock bookmark app those shortcuts take me to db but all I see are the bookmarks I added with the original browser. If someone knows how to make a home folder with bookmarks that's all I want.
