User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Win98; en-US; rv:1.4a) Gecko/20030401

Right-clicking on an html link & selecting Bookmark this link does not work. The
new address does not appear in Bookmarks in the Navigator browser as it should

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Right click an html link in a mail message
2. Select bookmark this link
3.

Actual Results:  
Nothing

Expected Results:  
The address should be added to Bookmarks
I can confirm the problem with 
Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Win98; de-AT; rv:1.4a) Gecko/20030401
The problem also exists, if you open a new _Window to show the mail "standalone"
Any relation to bug 101186 ?
Status: UNCONFIRMED → NEW
Ever confirmed: true
Still actual in Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Win98; de-AT; rv:1.4b) Gecko/20030502
this bug occurs when no navigator windows are open
additions to steps to reproduce behavior:

1.Make sure the preferences are set as follows:
    Preferences/Appearance/When Mozilla starts up, open:
    [ ] Navigator (off)
    [ ] Composer (off)
    [x] Mail & Newsgroups (on)
2.Close All Mozilla windows. Unload Mozilla from memory. 
  Make sure that quick launch icon is not shown.
3.Start Mozilla. Only Mail will open.
4.Right click an html link in a mail message
5.Select bookmark this link

As a result: nothing will happen.

6.Open Navigator
7.Close Navigator
8.Right click an html link in a mail message
9.Select bookmark this link
As a result: bookmark will be added to Bookmarks.
This is a workaround too.
