I can confirm this bug still using: Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; U; PPC Mac OS X Mach-O; en-US; rv:1.4b) Gecko/20030513 Mozilla Firebird/0.6 If one is not careful they can end up with a plethora of windows open in Mozilla Firebird. Of course, this uses up precious resources.
This should be set to Hardware / OS = "All" since we have a similar bug reported on PC/Windows: if all Mozilla Firebird (Browser) Windows has been closed and a new window gets spawned (either by bookmark manager or by Mac's File -> new window) the new browser window's toolbar fails... => changing hardware & OS and duping bug #206101 because of this one as the cause for both bugs seems to be the same

Can also confirm behavior exists in 0.7: Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; U; PPC Mac OS X Mach-O; en-US; rv:1.5) Gecko/20031007 Firebird/0.7 Seems more likely that bug will show up on Mac as it is a common situation to have an app running with no active windows; this is a much less common situation on a PC.
This seems related to bug #206752.
reverting changes to this bug to OS X-specific bug, duping to bug 206752 since it has a lot more dupes and cc's. Thanks for pointing this out Charles re comment 2, the opening from bookmarks manager issue is bug 195636 *** This bug has been marked as a duplicate of 206752 ***
