User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; U; PPC Mac OS X Mach-O; en-US; rv:1.7) Gecko/20040614 Firefox/0.9
Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; U; PPC Mac OS X Mach-O; en-US; rv:1.7) Gecko/20040614 Firefox/0.9

For perceived stability Macintosh applications don't arbitarily hide/show menus.
Instead those commands that don't make sense at the current context are disabled.
Don't hide the Go, Bookmarks, Tools, Window, and Help menus in the Bookmarks
Manager. Instead disable those commands in these menus that don't apply to the
Bookmarks Manager.

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Select the commands Bookmarks->Manage Bookmarks
Actual Results:  
The menus Go, Bookmarks, Tools, Window, and Help disappear.

Expected Results:  
These menus should stay visible, but those commands in them that don't apply to
the Bookmarks Manager should become disabled.

The Tools, Window, and Help menus even make full sense in the Bookmarks Manager,
so why they are hidden at all is a mystery.

Oh, and I just see the File, Edit and View menus completely change in the
Bookmarks Manager. They shouldn't do this.
