In the UK, US and other countries, commas (and not dots) are used as thousands separators, e.g. 10,000 = 10 thousand (not 10.000).

The problem with this is that whenever a comma is used as a thousands separator in Firefox Bookmark tags, the comma is interpreted incorrectly, so that in the case of 10,000 the 10 and 000 get separated.

I'm not sure what the best solution would be. Maybe use semicolons instead of commas? Use a different separator?

But something needs to be done to fix this glaring problem.

Strollin' around

Using semicolon instead of colon would indeed solve this issue!

RShep33: I think semicolons might well work (and would certainly be better than commas), although on second thoughts I think my preferred solution would be for all Bookmark tags to be displayed on a separate line in a dropdown menu (with a vertical scroll bar) with each tag starting with a tickbox (wrap any tags that are too wide for the dropdown menu width to a new line).

This would make it kinda similar to a To-Do list where you unclick an item to delete it. Also click anywhere inside the tag textbox to edit it. Or something like that anyway. I'm not the one who has to code it. I just come up with the bright ideas.

I'm just wondering if there would be any instances where a semicolon would cause an issue as with commas?

I can't think of any off the top of my head, but there might be.

I hope so.
