I was trying to make some order in the Bookmarks. All was going well until I ran into two Imported IE folders. One was usable, and the other one was not. The were duplicates, but I could not delete any of the useless ones. I also found a complete duplicate of the Netscape bookmarks but, again, not in formate to be deleted. Any way to clean up the mess?

The "Imported IE Favorites" folder is actually a link to the Favorites folder used by IE. If you add files to that folder they will appear automatically in "Imported IE Favorites" in Netscape. If you want to arrange these in Netscape you have the option to Copy all the bookmarks from "Imported IE Favs" to another folder created by you. Then you can delete "Imported IE Favorites" (you're deleting the reference) if you wish.

You can take a look in the bookmarks.html file to see how the "Imported IE Favorites" differ from the other entries. "Under" that entry you will not see any of the bookmarks which appear when you view it in Netscape.
