The toolbar bookmark Properties dialog does not respond to the OK button.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. I visited Ebay and Amazon sites and dragged the URL from the address field to
the bookmark toolbar. I wanted to shorten the icon text, so tried to change the
name property. 
2. I right-clicked the icon in the toolbar and selected "Properties."
3. After shortening the bookmark name from "Ebay - The Worlds Online
Marketplace" to "Ebay", I clicked OK in the properties dialog box. The dialog
box did not respond to the OK click.
4. I then tried to modify the same bookmark by going through "Manage Bookmarks,"
but the same thing happened.

Actual Results:  
Nothing happened.  I had to close the dialog box with the close widget.

Expected Results:  
Changed the name and closed the dialog box.
This WFM using the latest nightly and the 0.6 milestone build.  Mozilla/5.0

I would suggest that you try a clean profile as its possible you're having
problems with your bookmarks.html.  Just run MozillaFirebird -p to start a clean
profile and try again.

Download the newest nightly build without any extensions and start it with a
clean profile. I notice that you have the stumbleupon extension installed.
Perhaps this is the cause of this behaviour.

I deleted the default profile (only one) without deleting the settings files, 
with no effect.

Then I deleted the default profile and used the Delete Files option. When I 
restarted Firebird, I added new bookmarks. The Properties dialog now works 

Apparently, it was caused by something in the profile files.

Thanx for the help.

Resolving WFM per comment #3.

Mike, please be so kind as to always download latest nightly build, extracted
into new directory and called with option "-p" in order to create an additional,
 _new_ profile before opening a bug report. The procedure is described more
detailed at http://texturizer.net/firebird/bugs.html
Please note that your previous profile stays on your machine so no bookmarks,
cookies or settings get lost by creating the additional test-profile! :)
