One of the lines at the Bookmarks->Quick Searches is not parsed correctly. The
line is "I'm Feeling Lucky Quicksearch".

I've seen similar parsing problems in HTML pages too.

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:

Expected Results:  
' in the line should be rendered into some character, or if the character is
not available, into an empty square  character or some other standard notation.
The reader is never (unless he is a programmer...) interested in such escaped
notations inside the text.

Shouldn't this have been fixed by Bug 246419 (or rather Bug 253478, since the
checkin was included there)?

This is an automated message, with ID "auto-resolve01".

This bug has had no comments for a long time. Statistically, we have found that
bug reports that have not been confirmed by a second user after three months are
highly unlikely to be the source of a fix to the code.

While your input is very important to us, our resources are limited and so we
are asking for your help in focussing our efforts. If you can still reproduce
this problem in the latest version of the product (see below for how to obtain a
copy) or, for feature requests, if it's not present in the latest version and
you still believe we should implement it, please visit the URL of this bug
(given at the top of this mail) and add a comment to that effect, giving more
reproduction information if you have it.

If it is not a problem any longer, you need take no action. If this bug is not
changed in any way in the next two weeks, it will be automatically resolved.
Thank you for your help in this matter.
