Confirmed. Chris, care to take a look?
Status: UNCONFIRMED → NEW
Ever confirmed: true
Fx default bookmarks plus one named "Firefox's home page" to illustrate the problem.
Yeah, I can take this one. Please tell me Firefox isn't really exporting apostrophes as ' ... cl

Heh. Firefox *was* doing that, but that's a fixed bug (bug 246419). Suggest an upgrade to a newer Firefox for the reporter. This is basically another occurrence of bug 308998 for us. I've applied the same fix for this as I did there. Will post a patch momentarily. cl
There we go. Silly Firefox! HTML entities are for kids! cl

There we go. Let's get this checked in ASAP. cl
(In reply to comment #4) > Heh. Firefox *was* doing that, but that's a fixed bug (bug 246419). Um, I have a sinking suspicion that bug 246419 regressed. The sample file I put up here is the bookmarks file created by Fx 1.5 RC3 from a fresh profile (default bookmarks, note the mozilla.com one, and my one addition) this morning.
Either that or the Fx/Sm bug was really about failing to convert the ' back in to ' when displaying in the UI, not about the file on disk; it's not clear reading through the bugs. It's a fix we need, regardless.
Yeah, that Fx/Sm stuff looks pretty busted. For instance, look at all the dupes on bug 245758 since it's been marked fixed. There's pretty clearly a serious problem with this over there. Thank God our bookmark code is our own in this case... cl
