Under Manage Bookmarks - if I select any bookmark, select Properties, change the
name of the bookmark (not the URL, just the name), and then hit OK, browser
freezes. Same if I hit return, or cancel. 

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Go to Bookmarks, select 'Manage Bookmarks'
2. Right-click an individual bookmark & select 'Properties'
3. Change the name of the bookmark to anything.
4. Click OK (or press Enter)

Actual Results:  
Browser freezes. I.e. bookmark properties window & browser no longer respond &
must be killed.

Expected Results:  
Er, I would expect the bookmark name to be changed & I would be returned to the
'Manage Bookmarks' window.
worksforme linux firefox 0.9. Try with firefox 0.9 final, and don't forget to
uninstall previous version before installing

wfm with 0.9 final on Win2K. Is it possible to have a corrupted bookmarks file?
Please resolve this bug as wfm if the problem is solved after following
suggestion in comment #1 and (if needed) creating a new profile.

have resolved after I created a new profile.
