Go to the bookmark icon, select the 'Misc' tab and from there you can select the file type to display, location (internal, cf, sd), and then navigate the tree structure.

I was able to open the a file by typing in the full pathname:
file:///mnt/cf/Documents/application/gtd/gtd_tiddlywiki.html

However, I could not just type in 'file:///mnt/cf/" and get a directory tree structure to navigate like you get in Opera.

that was a top tip! What I ended up doing was finding the bookmarks folder, and copying an entry, only putting in the file:/// location.

thanks very much!
