When a title of a RSS feed is in RTL language (e.g. Hebrew) has more than one line, live bookmark fuses the two lines in the wrong order - second line first, and first line second.
"אובמה: על העיראקים לקחת אחריות על ארצם"
is presented as:
"לקחת אחריות על ארצםאובמה: על העיראקים"

This bug depends on bug 260445 - Hebrew / Arabic Live Bookmarks should be Right-to-Left https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=260445

אובמה: על העיראקים לקחת אחריות על ארצם
Was presented like this in the live bookmarks:
לקחת אחריות על ארצםאובמה: על העיראקים

Firefox merge lines in the wrong order - Firefox 3.0.8/en-US, screenshot

You have forgot to mention that you are using the English version of Firefox. On the Hebrew version, chromedir is set to 'RTL', which make the line appear aligned to the right, but the issue is still affecting it. I am attaching a screenshot with short summary.

This is how these items appear in the feed. As you can see, they broke the title into two different lines and Firefox merge it back in the wrong order. It should be first line first and than the second, much like how we currently handle English texts. :)

P.S., no I see it is not completely depending on bug 260445, but is "nice to have". Thanks for putting this bug in our attention.

Can someone from the Places team please show me where the title is constructed from the feed?  I have a hard time understanding this bug.

This is not a regression, so I don't think that this blocks the release of Firefox 4.  It sucks though, and I'm pretty sure we'd take a fix for this.
