Description

When right-clicking on an empty zone of the bookmarks toolbar, the following
context menu pops up:

New Folder...
----------
Cut
Copy
Paste
----------
Delete
----------
Properties

4 menu items (cut, copy, paste and delete) and 2 menuseparators are useless in
this case. The context menu should only contain

New Folder...
----------
Properties


David, can you reproduce it on Linux too?

Seen in Linux too. I'm not sure those items should disappear but they should
definitely be greyed out at the very least (only paste is sometimes greyed out).

Paste should still work.

Yeah, paste can be useful, I forgot that. However, it should be greyed out when
there is no bookmark in the clipboard.
taking QA contact, sorry about the bugspam

I am not seeing this. When the bookmark sidebar is open, there is always a
bookmark, separator, or folder selected. Right clicking anywhere on the sidebar
tree panel causes the context menu for the selected item to come up. WFM.

WFM with a 20040131 build on W2K.
When I click on an empty zone in the bookmarks toolbar the Cut, Copy, and Delete
context-menuitems are greyed out. The New Folder, Paste, and Properties items
are active.
