Clicked several RSS bookmarks in bookmarks-sidebar, returned to start page with
popup-menu from back-button, opened nested folders in bookmarks-sidebar (did
_not_ click any bookmarks within these folders), closed bookmark-folders;
effect: last selected RSS bookmark got focus, and was reloaded in the browser.

I was able to reproduce this behaviour a few times, it disappeared when trying
to reproduce it in a new (second) browser window. I'll try reproducing it in a
moment (after filing this report) by restarting the browser.

URL that was reloaded: http://www.nu.nl/news.jsp?n=466025&c=13
URL for the RSS feed: http://nu.nl/deeplink_rss2/index.jsp?r=Algemeen

To be continued... (I'll have to reproduce this bug from scratch first)

Checked it after browser restart:
What does _not_ matter: the URL (or the fact that it's an RSS bookmark), or if I
have multiple tabs / windows open.

To reproduce it: click a bookmark, go to another page by any means _other_ than
selecting a bookmark (e.g. by clicking 'back', by typing in a URL, or by
clicking a link), open as many folders in the bookmark panel _below_ the
highlighted bookmark as necessary to make the list extend below the bottom of
the panel, scroll down in the bookmark list, close a folder to make the list
(automatically) scroll up again. At this moment the highlighted bookmark wil
(re-)load, regardless of whether it's visible or not.

PS: closing a folder _above_ the highlighted bookmark to make part of the list
scroll up will _not_ trigger this behaviour.

As noted in the description of bug #261695, it looks very much like bug #173932.
(What does status 'works for me' mean in #173932? That someone can reproduce the
bug, or can produce the wanted behaviour _without_ the bug?)

BTW: tests in previous comments were done on:

Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.0; en-US; rv:1.7.5) Gecko/20041107 Firefox/1.0

(Aka Firefox 1.0 on Windows 2000)
