No, I don't and I haven't had such a folder for quite some time. The bookmarks bar would just display all my favourites, including the folders. Upon clicking a folder I would just get a submenu where I could click the link I wanted.

However, I have tried creating a Links folder again and add a bunch of bookmarks to it, but it still wouldn't display on the bookmarks bar. I think this issue is something bigger than just a case of whether or not there is a Links folder, as I don't see the 2 icons (add/organize bookmarks) on the bookmarks bar either.

Alright, for some reason things are now back to normal, although I have no idea why. I'm thinking maybe it's because I upgraded to IE8, but I'm not sure. All the icons are back and my favourites (including folders) show up, without having a "Links" folder.

I was very close to switching to another browser, but... Avant is just too good :thumbup:

Now this is getting weird. I just booted my computer and now the Bookmarks Bar is completely empty again! What's going on here? :wtf:

IE's favouries and AB's bookmarks are separate things.
Try this:
- In Avant switch to Avant bookmarks in the miscellaneous page
- Export all bookmarks to a file
- Start Internet Explorer
- Use IE's import function to import the bookmarks
- Switch Avant back to using IE's favourites
