Background

The Bookmarks Manager in Mozilla has several sort options available by clicking on column headers or via the View menu. This preference keeps track of the current sorted attribute. (The order in which the attribute is sorted is determined by browser.bookmarks.sort.direction.)

Since bookmarks in Mozilla are an RDF datasource, the attribute is specified by the namespace URL (http://home.netscape.com/NC-rdf or http://home.netscape.com/WEB-rdf) and the RDF property name.
