Bloody hell, I just realized why my Mozilla Firebird 'Add to bookmarks' prompt has been taking so long to appear lately: the Imported IE Favorites folder contains 2000+ subfolders!

Now, I haven't used my IE favorites since last December or so; it's mostly empty except for some shortcuts to local folders for use in Explorer. Apparently, during the last install, Firebird 0.6.1 thought it would be a good idea to add those folders and all their subfolders to its bookmarks file. Wow.

It didn't happen to my installation, so it's not something it does by default.. I think.

I'm surprised to see Mozilla Firebird is just as good as IE....small, fast, supports DOM stuff, wow.

Definitely... You have to remember, IE6 is an 'outdated' browser, being over two years old already.

I'd rather say Yuk instead of Wow.

"Mozilla Firebird is just as good as IE"? You must be kidding! Firebird beats IE three times over!

Ruben, why "yuk"?

Here we have an interesting situation: two different Jeroen's have posted a comment. Do I show that as one name in the 'x comments by...' link, or two?

It doesn't matter, I think. The posters URLs are needed to differ between them. We can't see the URLs in the "x comments ..." link. So show it as one.

I guess that's the drawback of not registering....however, I would keep it like this, and consider banning "jeroen" names, since it's too common anyway :D
