This particular bookmark file has been through several different versions of Netscape starting around 4.x and I can't be certain which one put the entity codes there. In Netscape 7.2, and all other versions I used from 4.x through 7.2, they displayed as expected, both when dropping down the bookmarks and when editing bookmarks: "Tom's Hardware Guide" After upgrading to Seamonkey 1.0.2, they unexpectedly show up with the entity code visible instead of an apostrophe - again, both when dropping down the bookmarks and when editing bookmarks: "Tom&#039;s Hardware Guide" (hope that shows up properly; in case it doesn't, it's "Tom[ampersand,number-sign,039,semicolon]s Hardware Guide") Reproducible: Didn't try Steps to Reproduce: Sorry - I'm not going to repeatedly uninstall and reinstall Seamonkey and Netscape to try to duplicate the problem. Actual Results: The numeric entity code is displayed Expected Results: The character represented by the numeric entity code should be displayed
You'll have to edit your Netscape 7.2 damaged bookmarks file, or create a new one, or delete the damage individual bookmarks and create new ones. *** This bug has been marked as a duplicate of 245758 ***
