Usability issue:

Somebody renamed the personal toolbar folder without me knowing, so I thought it
was regular folder, however because I didn't know it was a permanent folder, I
tried for the life of me to delete the folder.  It makes the program appear
buggy, if there is when there is absolutely no indication that the folder can't
be deleted.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. rename the presonal book mark folder, then it looks like any folder.
2. try to delete the normal looking folder

Actual Results:  
"Delete" is grayed out.

Expected Results:  
keep the Delete option available, however when they try to delete it, post a
message saying this folder is the personal toolbar folder and can not be deleted.
Changing the folder icon for this particular folder would also give clue to the
user that it is not a normal folder.

There is already a bug written up asking for the personal toolbar folder to have
different icon, however in the additional comments, somebody stated that the bug
was a duplicate, but when I checked that bug, it referred to a grouping issue,
and does not address this particular issue.
