trying to rename any bookmark in 1.6b wil result in a failure, atleast in my
installation. The OK button does not respond if the name is changed, but does if
anything else is. As most bookmarks can have terribly long names, its a great
headache. As far as my knowledge goes, it was not so with the 1.5b version, the
last i used

Reproducible: Always

1.bookmark a page

Actual Results:

I was using the default mozilla modern theme

This happened to me for a while, and I couldn't for the life of me figure out
why.  It has something to do with the Tabbrowser extension.  I think I just made
a new profile and started from scratch and everything worked after that.

its very possible that the tabbrowser extension may be the problem, as i too
have it installed.

I had the same problem when I upgraded to Mozilla 1.6. The problem is an old
version of the Tabbrowser extensions that was installed. Uninstalling the
version I had installed (Edit, Preferences, Navigator, Tabbed Browsing, click on
the Tabbrowser Extensions logo, Uninstall) and installing the latest version at fixed the problem.
Reporter, does Timothy's advice solve the problem?

it does, the problem was with the old tabbrowser extension. The new one works
fine and the problem is resolved.
