Hi

 

I've been talking with a few people on TechNet about a problem I've had organising non URL based shortcuts in IE11 on Win 8 and it's an issue not that is not only localised to my installation.

 

I first noticed the issue when I attempted to place a couple of automatic RoboForm logins as my first and second shortcut on IE11's Favourite bar - when I restarted IE they had moved from the set position and were now located in alphabetical order after my URL based shortcuts.

 

I initially thought it might be a problem with my install but now, after speaking with testers on TechNet, I find its something that IE11 does. 

 

I just wonder why?  Is there any way I can get an answer from the IE team?

 

Thanks

Yep, your first link identified the issue. Seems it was never followed up.
