If I Close Quick-Launch feature, then run Mozilla, it defaults to my homepage
(www.bobandgeorge.com).  The javascript drop-down menus do not work properly
until I visit a couple sites, then close the browser and open another one. 
After which, it works fine until I close Quick-Launch again.

This bug occurs regardless of my current home page.  This bug continues if I go
to any of the following as well: http://www.bobandgeorge.com 
http://www.rpgworldcomic.com  http://www.slackerscomic.com/destinydreamers/

These are the only javascript drop-down menu sites I visit on a regular basis,
so it probably holds true to any other sites that use a similar script.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Right-click QuickLaunch and Exit Mozilla.
2. Double-click desktop icon for Mozilla.  (This also loads QuickLaunch again)
3. Visit http://www.bobandgeorge.com/
4. Look at the tiny square followed by a list that belongs in the drop-down box.
   (Note: The first item in the list is blue as if it were the highlighted item
    in the box.)
Actual Results:  
A tiny square followed by a list that belongs in a drop-down box.  The first
item in the list is blue as if it were the highlighted item in the box.

Expected Results:  
There should be a drop-down box that each item when clicked on will jump to a
specific page.

Default theme is the one I use.

Picture of what bug looks like and what it looks like when normal.

The left image is the bug as described.  The right image shows what it normally
looks like if I click through a few bookmarks, close Mozilla, open it again and
go back to the page.

Correction, shutting down Mozilla whether I close quicklaunch or not causes the
javascript error to occur.  Additionally, the pattern that seems to correct the
problem is specifically visiting www.bobandgeorge.com, then
www.rpgworldcomic.com, then back to www.bobandgeorge.com (All done via my
bookmarks on the Sidebar), close Mozilla, open it again and it works.  Closing
the browser again causes it to stop working again and a need to repeat the process.

WFM, I can't reproduce this bug with Mozilla 1.8b1.
Version: unspecified → Trunk

Does it have to do with activating or de-activating the Quick-Lauch feature
before closing it??
