2. Bookmarks > Add Bookmark
3. Select the microsummary, then click Add.

Results:
The summary is added to the Bookmarks menu where it's not visible  or functional.

Expected results:
Add the microsummary to the Bookmarks Toolbar folder by default where it can be seen and used.

Will this still apply once bug 338429 is fixed?

If so, why not make the bookmarks toolbar the default target for all bookmarks so that the behavior of adding bookmarks remains consistent?
This makes some sense, but I'm a concerned about the UI implications of suddenly changing the default folder when the user selects a live title.  cc:ing beltzner for his thoughts.

Given the lack of traction and the risk involved, this most likely can't make Firefox 2.  Retargeting to Firefox 3.

Marking WONTFIX.

It's perfectly valid to have microsummaries show up anywhere, and there are good reasons to have them in the normal bookmarks tree (for example, a folder full of stock quote microsummaries for quick and easy checking). This would also mean bookmarking a microsummary-enabled page would default to a different location, even if you don't choose to display the microsummary... This could result the default location being chosen in a seemingly-random way to the user.
