If you delete all bookmarks from the bookmarks toolbar folder, the main browser
window goes up and down continuously. Like it's locked inside an event loop with
wrong co-ordinates, trying to move the main browser window to the correct
position in order to ocupy the space of the bookmarks toolbar folder place. The
problem is resolved if you hide the toolbar. However if you show the toolbar
again, it comes back on. If you add at least one bookmark, it is resolved again.
I am using WinXP in a CLEVO D470W system. It's specs can be found at the
following URL:
http://www.clevo.com.tw/products/D470W.asp
I have not installed SP2 for XP.
We tryed to simulate the problem at a compaq vc6000 machine with XP SP2 and the
problem does not exist. Also something that might help is that this bookmark was
imported by explorer, however any bookmark I create from Mozilla and delete it
afterwords, has the same effect.

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Have only one bookmark in the bookmarks toolbar
2. Right click, click delete
3. Same behavior, if you delete from manage bookmarks, bookmarks toolbar folder

Note: Bookmarks Toolbar must be visible.

Actual Results:  
Main browser window jumps up and down in the height of the bookmarks toolbar.
Even if you close and reopen Mozilla. The problem persists.

Expected Results:  
Main Browser window shouldn't be repositioned at all, because I did not hide the
toolbar, I only deleted all it's contents.
