If you create a bookmark and use Bookmark Manager to search for it in the same
session, the search will return the result many times over.

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Bookmark a site, e.g.,
2. Open Bookmark Manager and search for a word in the bookmark's title ("rabbit").

Actual Results:  
The new bookmark will be listed many times over.

Expected Results:  
The new bookmark should've been listed exactly once.

Note that if you completely exit and restart Mozilla, and then do the same
search, the results will be correct.

I can confirm this bug, so long as one is creating the bookmark via drag and
drop.  For example:

Repro steps:
- Drag a link into the bookmarks sidebar area,
- move the mouse around a bit between different potential drop locations,
- then drop the link, either in the bookmarks sidebar tab, or in a 'do not drop'
area, such as the sidebar splitter.

To see the erroneous result:
- Open Bookmark Manager, and search for the text of the link -- observe many
erroneous Bookmark Manager _search_ entries, with sometimes slightly different
times of creation.

One entry exists seemingly for each place the bookmark _could_ have been
dropped, each with the time of the bookmark window unit scroll action stamped on
it.  My times tend to span a period of about 5 seconds, with about 20-50 entries
in the search window, depending on how much I move the mouse (or scroll the
bookmarks).  These 'phantom' entries disappear after Mozilla is closed and
reopened for me, as the original reporter stated.
