Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.0; en-US; rv:1.7.2) Gecko/20040819
Firefox/0.9.1+

repro:
1. Open Manage Bookmarks
2. Rightclick on a folder in the right pane
Context menu
- Open in tabs 
--> Why, this is where the bookmarks are for, not the Manager ?

- Manage Folder
--> Why, you can manage the folder from where you are
--> Opening manage the folder pops up a bookmark manager window with just that
--> folder , it's unclear what this part adds. Also unclear if you try export
--> bookmarks if it experts just the folder or whe whole file

3. Open the folder
4. Rightclick on a bookmark
-Open
-Open in Window
-Open in Tab
--> Again not the Managers job

-New Bookmark
-New Folder
-New Seperator
--> Only belong to the folder context menu, not to the bookmark context menu

5. doubleclick on a bookmark

This opens the bookmark
instead it should open the properties dialogue.

If needed I can split this in seperate bugs
(in case of partial WONTFIX)

First off, we've always made the bookmarks manager able to open links, why limit
the functionality?  You can open files from your OS file manager, if you could
only move them around you'd be really irritated.  You're basically advocating
limiting functionality without providing any justification, so there's little
merit to most of these.

See first comment.  INVALID/WONTFIX.

There's a bug on this.  Vlad, the Manage Folder menuitem does suck, can you
find/fix that bug?

See first comment.  INVALID/WONTFIX.

That doesn't make sense.  If you want a separator in between two boomarks, or a
folder at a certain place, you want this as is.  WONTFIX.

Already WONTFIXED elsewhere.  Again, see first comment.  INVALID/WONTFIX.

The only legitimate one already has a bug, so I'm just marking this INVALID.
