I tried to move one of them and got an empty bookmark where it should have been moved to. The separator remained in its original place. I thought this was weird, but I didn't bother much at the time and went on with my life. However, since that time I've seen it more times and I thought it was time to report it even though I can't always reproduce it. I'm going to attach a screenshot to this bug... Reproducible: Sometimes Steps to Reproduce: 1. Just start with your own set of bookmarks and make sure you have separators in the menu. 2. Try to drag a separator. 3. I dragged it upwards, between two folders for example. Try that if you can't reproduce it, I guess. Actual Results: The bookmarks menu closed as soon as I had dragged the separator, and when I opened it again, in the place where the separator should now be, was an empty bookmark with a standard blank icon. See screenshot. The separator stayed in its original place and stays there even after I delete the weird empty bookmark. When I right-click the "dummy", I get the normal Expected Results: The separator should have moved to its new position and not have stayed in its original position. No "dummy" - weird empty bookmark entry - should have been created. I can delete the "dummy" - sometimes that's fine, and then maybe I can move the separator if I try again or move it to another place, but sometimes it happens again. I can't figure out what the behaviour is caused by.

Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.0; en-US; rv:1.8b2) Gecko/20050414 Firefox/1.0+ I see this also. For the time being I will mark that it depends on bug 288509 as I suspect if a patch fixes one, it will fix the other.
Status: UNCONFIRMED → NEW
Ever confirmed: true

No longer depends on: 288509
I forgot to write that last part or the description got truncated... This is what it should have said: When I right-click the "dummy", I get the normal properties window, as can be seen on the screenshot, but all the fields are empty.
A few bookmark and dragging bugs have been fixed recently, can someone confirm this is still reproducible using a recent trunk build?

Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.0; en-US; rv:1.8b2) Gecko/20050421 Firefox/1.0+ Dragging a seperator in the Bookmarks > menu still results in a bogus bookmark entry being created for me.
Dragging the seperator indeed results in an emty bookmark for me on: WinXP Gecko/20050421 Firefox/1.0+
Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.0; en-US; rv:1.8b2) Gecko/20050422 Firefox/1.0+ OK this seems to be happening sporadically, so here are steps to reproduce for sure. 1. Create a new profile, start filefox with said profile. 2. Go to the Bookmarks > menu 3. Move the mouse over the first divider (directly below "Manage Bookmarks") 4. Click and hold the left mouse button 5. Drag the divider down one space and release the left mouse button Result: A bogus (empty) bookmark entry is created. It should be noted that if you do this on an existing profile, and your first attempt to move the divider goes down past many bookmarks then the bogus entry may not be created, and then all subsequent attempts to drag&drop the divider work as expected (no bogus entry created). Restarting the browser and attempting the repo steps may then create a bogus entry.
Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.0; en-US; rv:1.8b2) Gecko/20050422 Firefox/1.0+(FF0.9 profile/bookmarks) I can reproduce the last case: 1.when I drag the separator below "Manage Bookmarks.." 2.or drag the one below "Bookmarks Toolbar Folder" and drag it back again

sorry for bugspam, long-overdue mass reassign of ancient QA contact bugs, filter on "beltznerLovesGoats" to get rid of this mass change

This bug is still with us in Firefox 2.0 (tested under XP Pro SP2.) I also noticed that this same bug can be triggered by dragging the top and bottom scrolling arrows (if you have them) into the bookmark list.
