bug 337855
more from bookmarks menu ...
can't open Bookmarks Toolbar Folder
Live bookmarks aren't displayed
more from bookmarks menu...
subfolders aren't displayed at all , there's only a thingy top-right of the folder name.

OS shouldn't be just Windows XP, it happens on Linux as well.
Summary: bookmarks are lost/inaccessible → bookmarks are lost/inaccessible (in bookmarks menu)
Bookmarks in folder without subfolder are displaying fine for me. Those with subfolders seems to cause the problem.
Error: this._containerNodesMap has no properties
Source File: chrome://browser/content/places/menu.xml
Line: 198
Trying to add a livebookmark into a subfolder causes the errors:
*** getSiteURI failed: 2147942487
*** siteURIString: undefined
*** getSiteURI failed: [Exception... "Component returned failure code: 0x80040111 (NS_ERROR_NOT_AVAILABLE) [nsIAnnotationService.getItemAnnotationString]"  nsresult: "0x80040111 (NS_ERROR_NOT_AVAILABLE)"  location: "JS frame :: file:///usr/lib/firefox/components/nsLivemarkService.js :: LS_getSiteURI :: line 686"  data: no]

should work now

r=me. looks ok, given the testing code is removed per irc. windows is still building, so not tested there yet.

This may have caused a slight leak increase? Rlk is up to 3.07KB
Blocks: 384731
Depends on: 384763
No longer depends on: 384763
The problem still partially exist :
- drag a bookmark from the toolbar to menu
- click on bookmarks menu
- bookmarks inside folders are no longer accessible
- close firefox, open it bookmarks are accessible again

Note :
When the problem occurs it seems to not affect the bookmark toolbar.
I'm not sure if the problem occurs for folder without subfolders. (I have no folders without subfolders)
I forgot to mention, I'm using the latest nightly build : 2007061804
Please file a bug and cc me, thanks.

Bug 451915 - move Firefox/Places bugs to Firefox/Bookmarks and History. Remove all bugspam from this move by filtering for the string "places-to-b-and-h".

In Thunderbird 3.0b, you do that as follows:
Tools | Message Filters
Make sure the correct account is selected. Click "New"
Conditions: Body   contains   places-to-b-and-h
Change the action to "Delete Message".
Select "Manually Run" from the dropdown at the top.
Click OK.

Select the filter in the list, make sure "Inbox" is selected at the bottom, and click "Run Now". This should delete all the bugspam. You can then delete the filter.
