Steps to Reproduce: Create a New Folder in the Manage Bookmarks window. Cut or Copy said folder. Paste. Result: The folder gets correctly pasted, although under the location column is garbage Also, an empty folder called "Bookmarks for default" gets created at the bottom. Don't try moving a bookmark or folder into that empty "Bookmarks for default" folder, otherwise that bookmark or folder will disappear.
Using build 2001041004 Pasting a folder still leaves garbage characters in the location field for that new folder and creates an extra folder with the same name as the parent folder. Upon restarting Mozilla, the extra folder now has the same name as the pasted folder, and garbage characters in the location field.
Using build 2001050904 on Win2K I can no longer reproduce this bug
As of build 2001060308 on Win2K: Pasting a folder resutls in 2 folders being pasted: The proper folder and the parent folder. Upon restarting Mozilla, the parent folder gets renamed to the folder that was pasted. For example, when pasting a New Folder into the Mozilla directory: +Mozilla New Folder (pasted) Mozilla (duplicate folder) Changing summary to reflect new behaviour.
Summary: Pasting a folder in Manage Bookmarks problems → Pasting a folder in Manage Bookmarks results in 2 folders being pasted

Ever confirmed: true
exactly the same behaviour when pasting on build 2001061706 on Linux. This seems to be a general problem, and not just on Win2K
