How to sort bookmarks by name from within Mozilla?

I feel pretty lame having to ask this, but no matter what I try I can't get my bookmarks to sort by name and it's driving me nuts.

If I go into the "bookmark manager" I can sort by name in ascending or descending for the manager, but when I go back into the Mozilla browser the bookmarks and folders are all jumbled.

Thanks in advance for any help. I know it's something silly I'm missing.

Sort not working was a bug in Mozilla 1.1 or 1.2, I'm not sure which.
I just tried sort in Mozilla 1.4 and it seems to work OK. So if you are using an older version of Mozilla try upgrading to 1.4. If you are using 1.4 then you should file a bug report with Bugzilla.

Thanks for the reply, jailbait. You were right. I was running RH9's default install of Mozilla 1.2.1. An upgrade to 1.4.12 fixed the issue. Thanks a bunch!
