Firefox freezes after executing reloadAllLivemarks() - i.e. refreshing all Live Bookmarks.

Probably the number of Live Bookmarks matters - about 15 for me. And the poor connection as well.

The problem is that the refreshing process should be done in background - like loading tabs, but it freezes the browser for a couple of seconds.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Add about 15 Live Bookmarks
2. Execute reloadAllLivemarks()
Actual Results:  
Firefox freezes for at least couple of seconds.

Expected Results:  
Firefox should not freeze.

The command is easily available thanks to for example LiveClick extension.

Another method to execute reloadAllLivemarks() is to enter this into the JS console:

I'm still seeing this issue with Firefox 3.6.13 in safe-mode on a fresh profile.

Tested by adding:
Live Bookmarks and executing reloadAllLivemarks() in the console.

bug 661445 changed the method do to lazy loading rather than a plain for loop, that should solve the freeze like it solved at automatic refreshes.
