Description

10 years ago
User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 6.0; en-US; rv:1.9) Gecko/2008051206 Firefox/3.0
Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 6.0; en-US; rv:1.9) Gecko/2008051206 Firefox/3.0

When the bookmark sidebar is opened, right click on "Bookmarks Toolbar", 
"Bookmarks Menu", or "Unsorted Bookmarks", then select properties.
That will open a dialog whose title is "Properties for "null""
instead of replacing null with the name of the bookmark preconfigured folder. 

I made an update from firefox 2 to firefox 3RC1 using the firefox 3RC1 installer. 

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open the bookmark side bar
2. Right click on a preconfigured top level bookmark folder (e.g., "Bookmarks Toolbar")
3. click on properties
Actual Results:  
the dialog title is "Properties for "null""

Expected Results:  
the dialog title should be "Properties for Bookmarks Toolbar"

Sounds like a localization issue, even if it is weird it passed RC1 QA tests.

No, not a l10n issue.  The "Properties" menu item should be disabled for that special folder (it's disabled in the bookmarks menu, for example), and that it's not disabled in the sidebar is a bug.

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.
