We need a doc on how to create, use, sort, delete bookmarks.
Explain the bookmarks toolbar, how to add and delete bookmarks there.
Explain the concept of keywords.
Explain "load this bookmark in the sidebar".
Explain the RSS icon and the concept of live bookmarks (already in the glossary,
see bug 255576).

*** Bug 261814 has been marked as a duplicate of this bug. ***
From the dupe:
Explain RSS/Atom in the "feed" entry in the glossary.
Explain how to add a live bookmark when no icon is displayed in the status bar
(Right Click -> Copy Link Location; then Bookmarks Manager -> File -> New Live
Bookmark).
The best of intentions don't mean bugs get fixed when we want them fixed.

This may or may not be a stretch, but I'm going to try and squeeze something out
in the next couple days to get it in 1.1.  Marking ASSIGNED...

Here's a first run with minimal content, at best.  Mostly it's an outline of
the sort of stuff we want to cover.  I'd like some feedback on this, because
some of the things I mention may not be desired in the final product or should
be moved elsewhere.

Also, it's not as much of a rush now that 1.1 has been bumped out a bit; we've
still got at least a month or so, I imagine, before we want to have a 99%-done
patch that's nearly ready to be checked into source.

Severity: normal → enhancement
steffen: you recently chaged the severity of this bug from normal to enhancement.  out of curiosity, what's the rationality for that?  as far as documentation is concerned, what constitutes a normal bug and what constitutes an enhancement request?

In my mind at least the distinction is mostly academic.  I usually consider "enhancement" to be something of lower priority than other bugs, tho, because the documentation is at least complete without the bug being fixed.
I consider adding new documentation as an enhancement and correcting mistakes as a "normal" bug. I wanted to make a distinction because I'd like to concentrate on "normal" bugs for Firefox 1.5, which are usually easier to fix than e.g. this bug.
