Description

File | Import of bookmarks causes a temporary "From ..." item to appear in the bookmarks menu. This regressed on trunk builds between 2006-02-13-06-trunk and 2006-02-14-06-trunk.

steps to reproduce:

-be certain an IE or Mozilla suite profile is set up with some bookmarks(favorites).
-Run a recent trunk build with a new profile.
-at migration do not migrate anything.
-after browser launch, select File | Import
-Select the radio button for the browser you will import from (lets say IE).
-Go with the defaults through the rest of the import wizard
-upon completion, go to Bookmarks menu

tested results:
there is a duplicate "From Internet Explorer" menu item. It is empty, but deleting it will delete its full twin. Also, the superfluous menu item will not appear in a new window and will disappear altogether on application restart. The Bookmarks Menu is the only place this empty item appears.  Other than the duplicate item the imported bookmarks appear correct and functional.

expected results:  

just the complete From IE item appears in the menu.

note: I wasn't sure if this should have been filed under migration or bookmarks.

i only get 1 entry "From Internet Explorer" in the bookmarks menu
