I'm using the nightly build (phoenix-win32.zip) dated Nov 4 12:32 When you bookmark a URL that has already been bookmarked, all the existing bookmarks with that URL receive the new name, and the new bookmark receives the default name. In addition, if you try to bookmark the same URL twice in the same folder, you end up with only one bookmark (with the new name) in that folder. Based on the previous paragraph I suspect that the bookmark may be original renamed, with the new one having been discarded, but that's just a guess. Steps to observe this bug: #1. Bookmark a page (in any location, with any name). #2. Bookmark the same page (in a different location, with a different name.) At this point bookmark 2 has the default name for the bookmarked page, and number 1 has been renamed with the name you entered for the second bookmark. #3. Repeat as for #2 Now both 1 and 2 have the name entered for #3, and #3 has the default name. #4. Bookmark the page again (with yet another name) in one of the folders you already assigned one of the previous bookmarks to. At this point you have the same number of bookmarks as you had at the previous stage, but all of them have the name entered for #4.

hmmm... curiously, the Bookmark Manager disagrees with what I've just described. It looks as if all copies of the bookmark have the default page name when viewed in the Bookmark Manager. Ah... If you carry out the above steps with the Manager already open, then it will also exhibit the same behaviour as previously described, but if you close and re-open the Manager then all bookmarks have been re-named to the default page name. I forgot to mention that I wondered if this was a duplicate of bug #177501 <URL:http://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=177501>, but a comment there says that the Phoenix bookmark code is now separate to Mozilla's. Perhaps both still share this issue, though?
After noting the Bookmark Manager behaviour, I checked to see what happened when closing and re-starting Phoenix itself, and it shares the same behaviour as the Manager -- all the bookmarks now have the default page name for that URL. Obviously there is some kind of name caching issue which causes the currently-displayed name to differ from the stored name, and when the bookmark file is re-read the stored names (which are also wrong :) are shown. I guess there are three potentially-separate bugs then: 1) The caching / incorrect-renaming of existing copies of bookmarks 2) The incorrect naming of a previously bookmarked page to the default name for the page 3) The inability to bookmark the same page twice in a single folder (Although (3) is probably a side-effect of (2), come to think of it -- it was just less obvious that this was the case initially, because of (1)!)
Mass verifiying old duplicates.
