This bug is for the implementation of an Info window for bookmarks, bookmark folders and bookmark groups, that allows editing of the bookmark name, location, keyword and description, per http:// www.mozilla.org/quality/browser/front-end/testcases/bookmarks/view- properties.html
A basic bookmark info window has been checked in. It could use some polish (resizing when elements are hidden), but functionally works and users can now edit name, url, keyword and description via this method.
Verified using 06-06 build. OS 10.1.4. I can edit bookmark properties (rename, change URL etc.) in my sidebar by right-clicking on the bookmark and selecting "Get info". I noticed that if I change the URL of a bookmark, accessing that bookmark through the sidebar or the Bookmarks menu takes me to the new URL. However, if I rename a bookmark, that bookmark only gets renamed in the sidebar and not in the Bookmarks menu. reopening this bug (or i could file a separate bug for this...)
also --shouldn't there be cancel/ok buttons on this window? not sure what the ui guidelines would be there, although cmd+w closes the window, which is good.
side note to comment 2 where editing the name doesn't show up in the bookmarks menu: i also see this, but it does show up after quitting and restarting.
patch for bug 158378 changes this from a panel to a dialog - and adds OK & Cancel buttons. Still doesn't resize when elements are hidden. Sorry. Also, from comments 2 & 5: this was bug 155560 which is fixed. When bug 158378 lands, I think this should be closed. Let other bugs handle specific problems with this dialog.
What prevents this bug from being closed? BTW I don't think that adding OK/Cancel buttons to a "Get Info" style panel would be a good idea. It's meant to be instant acting. The proper way to recover from accidental changes should be via Undo/Redo.
This has been fixed for awhile. Other bugs can handle specific implementation problems.
verified. get info window works. renaming bookmark title (per comment #2) in get info window takes effect in menu item immediately. 08-15 build on OS 10.1.5.
