The option to "reload live bookmark" or "reload bookmark" is missing when I right-click on an RSS item in the live bookmark bar.

This option has always been there, but disappeared around the 7/27/07 - 7/30/07 build.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. right-click on live bookmark menu bar
2. the menu item is missing. 
Actual Results:  
Many menu items are missing.

Expected Results:  
There should be several RSS related menu items including the option to RELOAD

This is an important menu item since the RSS feeds sometime fail to reload themselves.

This works for me (with a new profile). Please retest in Firefox's safe-mode to exclude extension/theme problems, with a reinstallation in a new empty folder or with a new profile.

Works for me as well - Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.9a7pre) Gecko/2007080305 Minefield/3.0a7pre
Works for me in Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; U; Intel Mac OS X; en-US; rv:1.9a8pre) Gecko/200708030808 Minefield/3.0a8pre as well.

Joey, can you try this in a new build and possibly with a new profile (to see if it is a profile issue)?

Safemode had no effect, but creating a new profile did the trick. I am uploading an a screen shot of what it looked like before the new profile.

no "reload" option in right-click.

this is the behavior before I recreated my profile.

moving to places... should this be WFM?

Joey, this is probably caused by some profile change that you or, more likely, an extension made. If you want to isolate the problem and see if it was indeed created by changes made to a clean Firefox profile, feel free. However, I'm going to close this bug as WORKSFORME since this works for you after trying a new profile and a few others (myself included) before doing so.

If you can reproduce this, please reopen the bug with details on how you reproduced it.

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.
