Hardy Alpha 4 Firefox 3 doesn't sort bookmarks

 Installed swiftfox as suggested in your note below.  The version I got appears to be Firefox 3:
Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.9b4pre) Gecko/2008021715 Firefox/3.0b4pre (Swiftfox)
Sorting bookmarks on Swiftfox Firefox 3 does work.  It's the Ubuntu Firefox 3 that doesn't work.  The display does lose several characters because of a large indent - why have an indent at all?


 Thanks, Jerry

While using Update-Manager, it asked me, if I wanted to change to FF3

I've been using swiftfox repositories! they still have FF2 trunk.
