Bookmarking a page using the menu, and poorly designed window pops up...multiple NEW FOLDER buttons and VERY sloppy presentation of folders (see link provided), and scrolling makes this window look terrible.

User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.4a) Gecko/20030401

Only one NEW FOLDER button should be presented to the user, and the list of
already filed bookmarks (and their folders) should be presented in a more
well-defined container. Something about the refreshing and repainting of the
window is wrong. This one seems to have no finite limits and presents poorly to
the user. While I am on the topic of BOOKMARKS, can you please add a menu choice
in BOOKMARKS to "USE CURRENT". Much easier than sifting through menus.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Go to any webpage
2. Go to BOOKMARK menu
3. Select FILE BOOKMARK
4. Scroll up and down
Actual Results:  
The window really stinks......very clunky when scrolling, and often stays with
multiple ADD FOLDER buttons. Doesn't seem to refresh or repaint itself quickly
enough (or sometimes, at all).

Expected Results:  
Put the buttons outside of the scrolling area instead of trying to repaint them
as you scroll. It is really awkward. I have a very good machine, and it can't
refresh fast enough to make this look nice. By simply placing them outside of
the scrolling area and listing them vertically as:
NEW FOLDER
--separator--
OK
CANCEL
I think you will make this window much more presentable.

Sincerely,

-Rick Darrell
