Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; U; Intel Mac OS X 10.5; en-US; rv:1.9.1) Gecko/20090612 Firefox/3.5 ID:20090612061417 Selecting the "Get Bookmark Add-ons" menu item under the Bookmarks menu opens the target page inside the currently open tab. This is bad because on a couple of dynamic websites you will loose any content which was entered in textboxes. We always open a new tab for the menu items under help and we should do it here the same way. I was tricked by this while running the BFT and loosing all my entered data. That's why I will enter the dataloss keyword. No idea how complex the fix will be and if it something we could consider for 1.9.1.x.
it is a normal bookmarks, and is handled as a normal bookmarkTo change how it behaves should be converted to a static item.
Retested on Shiretoko - Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:22.214.171.124pre) Gecko/20090904 Shiretoko/3.5.4pre (.NET CLR 3.5.30729). I would suggest same as Henrik as it causes the loss of data on the active page.
As per comment 1, there's not a lot we can do about this because it's a bookmark, behaving as a bookmark does, so RESO INVALID. I'd probably happily accept a bug removing the bookmark, though, if someone wants to file that ;)
