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() 3. 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: Components.classes["@mozilla.org/browser/livemark-service;2"].getService(Components.interfaces.nsILivemarkService).reloadAllLivemarks();

I'm still seeing this issue with Firefox 3.6.13 in safe-mode on a fresh profile. Tested by adding: http://debian.org/News/news and http://planet.fedoraproject.org/atom.xml to 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.
