Description

17 years ago
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux 2.2.16-3 i686; en-US; m18) Gecko/20010208
BuildID:    2001020808

At some time in the past I removed my Personal Toolbar Folder.  I've decided I
want it back, but I can't create a folder that is recognized as being the source
for the toolbar.

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
Turn off the Personal Toolbar (View/Toolbars/Personal Toolbar).
Delete your Personal Toolbar folder (from the Bookmark Manager).
Restart Mozilla.
Create a new folder called 'Personal Toolbar Folder' (matching the original
name) and add some bookmarks to it.
Turn on the Personal Toolbar (View/Toolbars/Personal Toolbar).
Restart Mozilla.
Note the contents of the Personal Toolbar.

Actual Results:  No links are displayed in the toolbar, other than the 'Home'
button.

Expected Results:  Either the Personal Toolbar folder should not be deletable,
or it should be possible to assign a folder as the source for the personal toolbar.

I can still 'display' the personal toolbar folder, but its only contents are the
default 'Home' button.

Hmm.  After restarting a third time (just after entering this bug) the toolbar
links appeared...?

Still, creating a folder with the exact name as the deleted one is nonobvious,
and it appears to the user that nothing happened.

I guess this is an RFE: if a recognized folder name is entered, it should be
scanned immediately and used to populate the toolbar.  (Or, as I suggested, it
should not be possible to remove the folder in the first place.)

Open the bookmark manager.
Select a folder.
In the menu, View -> set as personal toolbar folder.

Oh.

As Emily Latella used to say, "Never mind".  (Although the 'View' menu does seem
a strange place for the 3 special folder preferences....)
