Open the manage bookmarks component. Insert a separator in one of your folders on the personal toolbar. PROBLEM 1: Separator is not shown at first. Close Manage Bookmarks. Re-Open Manage Bookmarks. Now the separator is shown. Restart Mozilla. MAIN PROBLEM: Now the separator magically results into multiple separators. After some time (restarting mozilla several times) the number of separators can be more than 50! Manually deleting the separators works, but on exit mozilla will crash.
Maybe something related to bug 54866: "Importing ns4 bookmarks does not filter out bad chars. Recursion happens." See also its dupes.
Definate duplicate marking as such *** This bug has been marked as a duplicate of 54866 ***
Ksosez: Are you sure this is a dupe? I certainly isn't.
I think you're right that it could be caused by importing Netscape 4 Bookmarks. When I create a new account with new bookmarks and try the same thing, I do not have any problems with the separators.
I'm not convinced this is a dupe yet...
I'm not either...
Created attachment 22890 [details] Small Bookmarks file that will cause crash,when inserting separator
Mozilla Build: 2001011604 (WinME) I have removed everything from my bookmarks-file, except for 1 folder in the Personal Toolbar. When inserting a separator into this folder, mozilla will crash on exit. This smaller version of my bookmarks file does NOT have the multplying separator problem, but I do think that the crash is related. That's why I have attached the small bookmarks-file to this bug
tell me again the steps so I can reproduce this crash with the BM file you've attached (so I can confirm this bug and check other platforms)
Marking NEW while you guys figure this out.
When I try to do this in a Linux debug build I can reproduce the crash on exit. Attaching stack trace...
Adding crash, regression keyword. Triaging the Most doomed (which Happens to Ben right now :)
Gotta fix this, setting target milestone to mozilla0.8.1, reassigning to pchen to investigate crash
I see this too, only after adding a separator. Curiously, the crash seems to be spawned by the pref shutdown procedure. cc'ing alec who may be able to provide some insight...
the crash in the stack trace is the crash in bug 62401 (mozilla 0.8.1) - so I don't know if you want to remove the 'crash' attribute of this bug, but I'd recommend it..
Making dependant on 62401, removing the crash keyword per recommendation.
swapping dependency for dup since there's no problem with the separator insertion itself, there's just an additional crash *** This bug has been marked as a duplicate of 62401 ***
