If I go to the Bookmarks menu and select "Bookmark This Page" it brings up the bookmarks box as usual. I click the arrow to expand the folder list, all is well. However, if I delete a folder then select a new folder and click "Done", the bookmark is not added. If I close the bookmark window then add it where I want to it works just fine.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Click "Bookmarks"
2. Click "Bookmark This Page"
3. Expand the bookmark folders list and delete a folder
4. Select a new folder
5. Click the "Done" button
Actual Results:  
The bookmark is never added to the list.

Expected Results:  
The bookmark should be stored.
HAve you tried if this is still reproduceable in 3.5.2 by chance?
Do you see any error in the error console when that happens?

I have not tried to reproduce it in 3.5.2. I haven't taken the time to update. And I do not see any errors in the Error Console after I duplicate this problem.

I tried in 3.5.2 as well, you don't even need to try to select a different folder, the bookmarks menu gives the same results.
confirmed, i get this exception

Error: uncaught exception: [Exception... "Component returned failure code: 0x80070057 (NS_ERROR_ILLEGAL_VALUE) [nsINavBookmarksService.getFolderIdForItem]"  nsresult: "0x80070057 (NS_ERROR_ILLEGAL_VALUE)"  location: "JS frame :: chrome://browser/content/places/editBookmarkOverlay.js :: EIO_onFolderMenuListCommand :: line 844"  data: no]
Ever confirmed: true

Oh, I haven't seen any exceptions or other error forms. It just doesn't store the bookmark. =P Maybe they'll get this sorted out soon.
