found using 2004-07-15-09-0.9 (branch) on Mac OS X 10.3.4 while running this test:

1. go to

2. click the lightening bolt icon in the statusbar, and select the RSS item
(it's the only item in the popup menu).

3. in the resulting Add Bookmark dialog, select the Bookmarks Toolbar Folder.

4. go to the Bookmarks Toolbar (BT), wait for the livemarks (RSS feeds) to load
and keep an eye the top four or so items.

5. dismiss the livemark and wait about a minute or so.

6. bring up the context menu for the livemark in the BT and select "Refreash
Livemark", then look at the top four or so feeds.

expected: the feeds should be changed.

actual results: the feeds are not changed. this is not a problem when I refresh
the livemark from either the Bookmarks Manager window or the Bookmarks Sidebar.
This seems to be on all platforms, refreshing both from the bookmarks menu or
bookmarks toolbar.  Right-click refresh works fine, as you say, from the
bookmarks manager and siderbar.  Will investigate.

I can confirm this  but however i am wondering why you haven't voted for your
own bug ;)

I tried it for and for perter(6) firefox build feeds.

after 1 day they collapsed to one file on the bookmakrs toolbar folder.
