This bug is the Firefox part of bug 151336. I commented out the mentioned line 544 inside the bookmarksMenu.js. It's reported that a crash of the X-server will happen, but I for myself can't notice any crash. Dragging of bookmarks from subfolders always works fine. Anyone using Linux can test it? If no crash will occur we could re-enable this nice feature? I'm using Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.8b2) Gecko/20050604 Firefox/1.0+ under Debian (Kanotix)
Commenting out the mentioned lines in bookmarksMenu.js, I am able to reorder bookmarks in the personal toolbar and in the bookmarks menu (but not subfolders), and move them across folders. Dropping on a folder works, too. However, the menu closes after every drop, which perhaps should be a separate bug. Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.9a1) Gecko/20050901 Firefox/1.6a1 under Ubuntu. Should probably be tested with a more recent build or 1.5b1, but I don't have either ready, and I doubt it changes anything in that respect.
Does this Linux (and MacOSX !?) bug still exists with Firefox ?
(In reply to comment #2) > Does this Linux (and MacOSX !?) bug still exists with Firefox ? Yes, I see it with Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.9.1a2pre) Gecko/20080828125856 Firefox/3.1a2pre. Also drag&drop of an URL from the location bar onto the bookmarks toolbar doesn't work, but the latter might be another bug.
Please disregard my last comment. I saw a regression (bug 452083) which was fixed on 2008-09-01. The issue doesn't exist on trunk and on the branch. My apologies.
This does still happen for Firefox 2.0.0.x under OS X. But due to the massive changes for Places I believe it will not be fixed on 1.8 branch anymore. Even its no security issue. Marking as WONTFIX?
OS: Linux → All
Hardware: PC → All
Version: Trunk → 2.0 Branch
not going to take further fixes on 2.x, feel free to reopen if you can reproduce on 3.x or current trunk
