User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 6.0; en-US; rv:1.9.0.13) Gecko/2009073022 Firefox/3.0.13 (.NET CLR 3.5.30729)
Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 6.0; en-US; rv:1.9.0.13) Gecko/2009073022 Firefox/3.0.13 (.NET CLR 3.5.30729)

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.

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.
