Organizing comics
Normally I organize my comics by day of update by folder. For example the 'Monday' folder contains all comics that update on Monday, and so forth. I also have a folder for All comics (for reference) and 'Old, Retired, or Inactive' (again, for reference).

Unstable comics, comics that don't have a set schedule to update or regularly don't follow it, were causing a slight problem with this system. I either put them in one of the day folders as a note to check if they've updated (or when they were supposed to update) or I would keep them in the top level folder to check whenever I felt like it (which was quite often). Now that I have a feed reader set up I've been able to move a lot of the unstable and hiatus comics to it. I then removed them from my regular comic update bookmarks so everything is nice and clean again.

I have mine in alphabetical order by the box loads. LOL!

I used to do that. I then started adding [MTWTFSS] to the beginning of the bookmark name with stars on days they didn't update (for example [M*W*F**]), and putting those in order of days updated (thus comics that updated only Monday would still be grouped with comics that updated every weekday). It was still a large waste of time, though, especially when so many of them updated late or skipped updates.

The reason for the new system is that in Firefox I can simply middle-click the day folder name and all those comics immediately open in tabs (it duplicates bookmark references but that's why I also have 'All'). I can just start pressing Ctrl+W and/or middle-clicking tabs to go through the list of comics that have updated. I do that once at night at 8pm PST and again in the morning to catch the midnight updates.
