Unable to arrange Favorites Bar in order I prefer

Just upgraded from Windows 8 and IE 10 to Windows 8.1 and IE 11.

But my Favorites Bar is organized a different order now.  I Unlock the Toolbars, then try and move the Favorite title to a different position on the list.  But it will not stay.

This is distressing, as I keep most used tabs in a handy place along the top, but now a couple of them are relegated to the bottom of pull down list.

What can I do?

I have finally found a solution.  The file that I could not drag-and-drop on Favorites Bar...it had a file name starting with the digit "1"  I tried renaming the file by eliminating that "1" and starting with alpha character...and now it will stay wherever I want it.

A bug in IE11, since this was not an issue for years until the upgrade?  Anyhow, I have my workaround, thanks!
