Firefox 0.10. Unable to drag and drop the Bookmarks Toolbar Folder in BM manager.
Can not drop it into the left pane or right pane. Reassigning the BTF property
to another folder allows the old BTF to be moved as normal.

During the drag, feedback is normal (user is shown the "will insert here"
divider), but the move does not actually execute once you release the mouse button.

Same problem if you select multiple folders, one of them being the BTF. None of
them will be moved upon drag release.

Is bug 263560 a dupe of this one?

*** Bug 301290 has been marked as a duplicate of this bug. ***
Since the bookmarks toolbar folder cannot be deleted, the recommended workaround
is just to treat it like any other bookmarks folder. This bug obviously causes
problems with this.

As a workaround, you can highlight a group of other folders and move them in the opposite direction "around" the BTF, allowing it to be "moved" to the bottom of the list or whatever.
