I can't reproduce this issue right after a reboot; looking at the firewatch log, it looks like the processor is overworked.  Seems like a lot of stuff has been done to get to the point where this bug occurs... is that right?

I was able to reproduce this bug directly after a phone restart, and a fresh reset using the STR originally given

Christian, is this dialog part of the bookmarks app or is it still part of the homescreen app in 1.3T?
Flags: needinfo?(crdlc)
If this is not done in quick succession, can this still be reproduced?

I was able to reproduce this issue with the original steps after 3 attempts and talking with the reporter. 

Slowing the steps down I was unable to reproduce the issue after about 25 tries.

The new architecture for Bookmarks only lives in 2.0 Ben, so the bookmarks are still part of the homescreen app in 1.3T

Then it sounds like homescreen is most likely where this bug is lurking. Please move it back if that isn't the case.
Component: Gaia::Browser → Gaia::Homescreen
I cannot assign me it to myself because I do not have a Tarako device where the bug is reproducible according to flags.
Mass update: Resolve wontfix all issues with legacy homescreens.

As of 2.6 we have a new homescreen and having these issues open is confusing. All issues will block bug 1231115 so we can use that to re-visit any of these if needed.
