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?)
