User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.4) Gecko/20030624

THe bookmark toolbar seems to be inaccessible. If I'm on a site and try to
drag'n'drop a bookmark onto the toolbar, I get the little "boop" error noise and
nothing else happens. It seemed to be working before I I accidentally hit the
hard-reset button instead of the sleep button on my case. This is probably a
"Firebird doesn't work well on un-clean exits" issue.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Hard-exit Firebird(?), possibly by powering down your computer while it's open.
2. Visit a site you want to bookmark.
3. Try to drag'n'drop the bookmark onto the bookmarks toolbar.

Actual Results:  
Little boop noise and no bookmark on the toolbar.

Expected Results:  
It should have made a bookmark on the bookmark toolbar.

This is an unfortunate feature of most of the software i've ever used. =)
This happens with corrupt bookmarks files.  There are bugs out there that deal
with better fault-tolerance for bookmarks and other files, such as backup
versions etc, but in the meantime corrupting a file does have consequences.
