When I search bookmarks in the sidebar, a bookmark I deleted is listed as a search result. Steps to reproduce: 1. Create a bookmark you have never bookmarked page (e.g. this bug page). 2. Delete it. 3. In bookmarks manager/sidebar, search the bookmark (enter bug#). Actual Result: The bookmark is in the list. Expected Result: Nothing comes up. This is a kind of undo/redo transaction bug.

Confirming w/ firefox 1.0.6 and Windows XP SP2 Actually this bug is much worse than first descibed as it really garbages up the search results with multiple entries for the same bookmark wether it is deleted or not. In one of my tests a single deleted bookmark showed up 37 times in the search results. In another test it occured 14 times and a 3rd test only produced it once. Here is my test procedure to confirm this bug. Test 1: 1. add a bookmark for this page by dragging to bookmark manager 2. search on '275249' 3. delete the bookmark 4. search on '275249' Result: 37 instances of the same bookmark are displayed both before and after deleting it. If you have the 'Locate in bookmark folders' extension installed you can easily distingquish between these 'phantom' and 'real' bookmarks because the Locate button will not become active when a phantom bookmark is highlighted. Test 2: 1. same procedure as test 1 except: 2. add a bookmark for any other web page whose page name does not contain a number Result: Same as test 1 except that 14 rather than 37 instances occurred Test3: 1. same procedure as test 1 except: 2. add the bookmark by manually creating it by right clicking 'new bookmark' and manually typing the name 'unique bookmark' Result: Same as test 1 except only 1 instance of the bookmark occured. Also different in this case, the 'delete' bookmark button is active after already deleting it but clicking delete again does nothing. Could the owner or power user of this bug please change the severity to major since 37 'phantom' search results for any single bookmark wether deleted or not deleted completely ruins the usefulness and credibility of the search feature.
