There is that. However there is no option with that for setting a
"keyword" so that you can select the folder of bookmarks in one go by
just typing the keyword into the address bar. (Or, in my case, just two
or three cryptic letters!)

There is a syntax used whereby you can store multiple "http:" URLs all
as one address. It's used when you first install Firefox for the
homepage for example.

Short of me reinstalling... Any clue as to the URL separator used?
