To access NJStar, do you just press and release Ctrl?  (That's similar to
WinXP's shortcut to switch languages, Alt+Shift, and equally strange :))

How do you tell whether NJStar has changed the language setting?

Do you have other examples of shortcuts that don't work in the Add Bookmark
dialog, or is NJStar the only one you tried?

I only tried on NJStar. You have to install NJStar Communicator Software, after
launching the program, right click the icon in the system tray and choose
"NJStar Chinese Input" or else. A IME toolbar will appear in the buttom. Then
the "Ctrl" key will switch between Chinese input mode and English input mode.

Firefox has a different bookmark dialog now.

Reporter (Fen Wu) - can you try this with a recent branch nightly build of
Firefox and see if the problem still occurs? thank you
