The arguments against having this feature in the browser seem to revolve around the breaking of functionality as regards dragging and dropping the url from the address bar to a location of the user's choice. This seems to be acceptable from a user perspective. What I suggest is have to kinds of functionality associated with the url widget: 1. Dragging the widget allows you to drag and drop the url 2. Double clicking the widget lets you organize the bookmark as a url, iow, opens up the bookmark manager. This shouldn't be a very difficult thing to fix either, I saw the patch that timeless made to navigatoroverlay.xul to resolve the issue with the dialog popping up.
if we're going to make doubleclicking do something, i'd much prefer for it to behave like explorer and open the dropdown list.

Created attachment 119458 [details] bookmark-icon.png This image explains precisely what icon I expect to double-click in order to call "File Bookmark" dialog. It worked before (Mozilla pre-1.0), but someone (why?) disabled it.
Segeui - that's just the site icon (aka favicon), which is put there by the site you're visiting. It has nothing to do with the bookmark manager. See http://www.favicon.com/ for more details.
Neil, you didn't get the point. The icon is different from site to site, and I know that. But if you drag it to the toolbar - it will bookmark it there, right? In Mozilla before 1.0 you could also double-click on it and it would bring the dialog window which now you open by using "Bookmarks"->"File Bookmarks...". So somewhere after 1.0 there was a regression. And I am trying to report it (See my original report in the bug # 200334). As an answer you explain me that that icon is "favicon". I know what it is. I am just reporting that the duble-click on it is broken.
Axxackall: the feature (apparently) wasn't even intended, and in any case was purposefully removed (so it's not "broken"). See comment 1, pointing to bug 158364. Bringing it back is a WONTFIX request (this bug). No further discussion necessary.
