User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.0; en-US; rv:1.3) Gecko/20030312 Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.0; en-US; rv:1.3) Gecko/20030312 I accidentally created a Personal Toolbar Folder (PTF) in the Personal Toolbar. The folder <a href="http://www.thegreekgod.net/images/ptf1.gif">appears to be empty</a> when it is selected from the toolbar. This folder cannot be deleted through normal bookmarking deletion practices. I had to remove it manually from the bookmarks.html file in my profile. This has an <a href="http://www.thegreekgod.net/images/ptf2.gif">interesting effect</a> when going through the main Bookmarks. An unending chain of PTF folders is created. This new PTF folder also appears when Manage Bookmarks is opened, and weird things start to happen when the folder are opened/closed. 1) Select Manage Bookmarks... - <a href="http://www.thegreekgod.net/images/ptf3.gif">Image</a> 2) Close the fake PTF within the existing, "real" PTF, and it's name disappears. Other folder names also disappear if they are selected at this point (not bookmarks, just the folders) - <a href="http://www.thegreekgod.net/images/ptf4.gif">Image</a> 3) If you try to close the actual PTF (i.e. click on the black arrow), multiple copies of the same folder appear. <a href="http://www.thegreekgod.net/images/ptf5.gif">Image</a> 4) Click on the arrow again, the PTF closes. Click again, and everything appears to be normal (and the fake PTF is gone - even though it is still in the toolbar) - <a href="http://www.thegreekgod.net/images/ptf6.gif">Image</a> Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. I click and hold down between 2 folders (or bookmarks) in the Personal Toolbar. 2. I drag "something" off of the toolbar. 3. I place "it" back on the toolbar. Actual Results: A "fake" PTF is created in the Personal Toolbar. Expected Results: No PTF should have appeared in the Personal Toolbar. This shouldn't be possible. This may be distantly related to Bug 191888.
Two other notes: 1) The following line of code is added to bookmarks.html when this bug occurs: <DT><H3 ADD_DATE="907702403" LAST_MODIFIED="1048787639" PERSONAL_TOOLBAR_FOLDER="true" ID="NC:PersonalToolbarFolder">Personal Toolbar Folder</H3> <DL><p> </DL><p> 2) If the process of creating these fake PTFs is done multiple times, only one instance of it will show up in the Personal Toolbar, but all of the fake PTFs appear in bookmarks.html. When one instance is removed from bookmarks.html and mozilla is relaunched, the next instance appears.
