The About Us page ( has been unstarred/unbookmarked, yet it still remains starred in the bookmarks list.

See screenshots

Gecko/20091229 Fennec/1.0b6pre
2) goto About Us page (see URL)
3) swipe left, and Unstar / unbookmark the page
4) click the URL to pull up the bookmarks dashboard page
5) Verify the about US page is still starred.

- The About Us page gets unstarred after unbookmarking it

- About us page on the bookmarks dashboard is still starred

I bet that's because the bookmarks is on "" but when going to the page I finished on

In my case the star in the right sidebar is already unbookmarked

Is this still happening to you, Tony?
Looks like Vivien is right.  To delete this bookmark you can go to "All Bookmarks" and use the "Manage" button.

Uh, that's confusing to the user. We should move this bug over to webpages and try to find a solution there. This bug is not invalid as there is a break in the user experience of going to "About us". 

Alex, where would be an appropriate place to move this bug to?
Resolution: INVALID → ---
A couple things,

1)  There is a website bug.  /{locale}/firefox/about/ is out-dated and should be removed, and the rewrite rule should be changed to point at /about/ instead of /about/whatismozilla.html IMO.  

Pascal, we could move localized /firefox/about/index.html pages to /about/index.html, since it looks like /about/index.html isn't localized yet.  Your call.

2)  The bookmark should point at /about/, not /firefox/about/ since that will always 301.  I've file bug 572056 for this.

Summary: About Us page is unbookmarked, but still starred → /firefox/about/ page and rewrite rule are outdated
Thanks for the help, Alex.
Wilson, could you?

Please remove /firefox/about/index.html

There are localized versions of /firefox/about/index.html.  You can move those to /{locale}/about/index.html

There is a rewrite that points /firefox/about/ to /about/whatismozilla.html.  Please change that to point to /about/.  Also, please make sure that rewrite uses [PT] (pass through) instead of redirecting, so that old bookmarks work correctly.

In addition to en-US/firefox/about/index.html, ko and pt-BR both have {locale}/firefox/about/index.html. Should those be removed as well?
ab-CD/firefox/about/ should be moved to ab-CD/about/, in the case of ko and pt-BR just delete /firefox/about, don't move them to ab-CD/about/

Some files were accidentally deleted. Backing out and redoing.
Okay, fixed at r73221.
No, per comment 8, is rewritten with PT (Pass Through), so it serves identical content as but does not redirect to it.

OK, cool, thanks.  I'll remember that for future PT rewrites.  Removing qawanted keyword.
