From Bugzilla Helper: User-Agent: Mozilla/4.73 [en] (WinNT; I) BuildID: 2000052815 I currently have my desktop bookmarked in 4.7. After migrating, it used to be that instead of it being just a normal bookmark, it would actually expand to show all the files on the desktop. Now, not only does it not work, it causes all the other folders in that folder to become disfunctional. For instance: Current Bookmarks - 4.7 Example - - - - *Desktop *Bookmark *Bookmark >Folder >Folder >Folder >Folder Old Mozilla Example - - - - >Desktop *Bookmark *Bookmark >Folder >Folder >Folder >Folder New Mozilla Example- - - - Desktop Bookmark Bookmark Folder Folder Folder Folder This may be confusing, so let me explain it. In 4.x, the desktop book mark is just that, a bookmark to a system directory. In older mozilla builds, that bookmark became a folder which held the contents of the desktop. In new mozilla builds, any bookmarks or folders that are in the same folder as a bookmark to a system folder bookmark become broken, and do nothing when clicked on. The folders in the folder appear to become bookmarks that don't work. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1.bookmark a system folder in 4.x 2.migrate your profile to mozilla 3.go to the folder that the bookmark is in 4.see that all folders and bookmarks appear to be broken Actual Results: After bookmarking a folder and migrating, it renders all folders and bookmarks unusable Expected Results: The folder bookmark should either expand into showing the contents of that folder (old mozilla style) or just link to the folder and go to it when clicked (4.7). I loved the way older mozilla builds did it, and would love to see that return. Bookmark a folder freshly in Mozilla without migration seems to work fine.
The migration code just copies the old bookmarks.htm to the new profile directory. The browser itself reads the old bookmarks file and does any required conversions. Reassigning to slamm.

Reassigning 79 Bookmarks bugs to Ben. I was told this was going to be done shortly about two months ago, but it clearly hasn't been. I think that's long enough for all these bugs to remain assigned to nobody. Feel free to filter all this spam into the trashcan by looking for this string in the message body: ducksgoquack
