- open bookmarks window
- click "file bookmark"

in the bookmarks drop down, as soon as you mouse over an item with a submenu, 
both child and parent vanish. makes it sorta hard to use.

A mechanism for filing a bookmark into a particular using the keyboard/mouse is 
currently checked in (went in with my other .9 fixes). It is a method that 
allows a user to place a bookmark where he or she wishes without breaching user 
interface guidelines from Apple or Microsoft (no deeply nesting menus):

Bookmarks->Add Bookmark As... (Ctrl+Shift+D)

Opens the add bookmark dialog and allows the bookmark to be filed somewhere. 

Does this meet the requirements for this bug? This seems like the best fix to 
me. IE allows drag into its toplevel menu in the windows versions only, but this 
is kind of a geek thing, and isn't that discoverable on windows so I doubt many 
users know about it. There are also XP problems with dragging into and opening 
popups that are not likely to be fixed before this release. So I would suggest 
that the Add Bookmark As... dialog is sufficient at this juncture. 
Fix in hand. (File with dialog)

Should be fixed. File Bookmark now fires the Add Bookmark dialog. Please verify,
thanks.
