[Regression] Add bookmark dialog, Folder selection treeview doesn't work properly


(Firefox :: Bookmarks & History, defect)

Not set

(Keywords: regression)

Note: This is *not* easily reproducible, it apparently happens only sometimes.
Also note that I have many several thousand bookmarks in hundreds of folders.

1. Go to website (which is not yet bookmarked)
2. Click star icon on the right of the URLbar, twice. => Bookmark dialog
3. Click down arrow next to the folder dropdown, to see all bookmark
   folders in a treeview (hierarchical widget).
4. Open some folders using the twisty.

Actual result:
The twisty for the folder is in opened state (down arrow), but no folders appear underneath it, although there are folders. Re-closing and re-opening does not help. Same happens for other folders.
If you close the bookmark dialog (via cancel) and re-open it, the wierd state persists.

Expected result:
All existing folders shown.

This is a new bug which appeared recently (after March 1).
A recent post on m.d.a.firefox suggests that somebody else saw it as well.

This is a frequently used action and core browser functionality.

BenB: Do you have a tree? If so, would you mind testing the patch from bug 553334?
I can't reliably reproduce the issue anyways. When I tried it without the fix, I had to open the bookmarks dialog 2 times, and lots of open/close in the 1. invocation, then the bug immediately appeared in the 2. invocation. So, it's rather random.

But I couldn't reproduce the bug with the patch applied.
