BuildID:    2001061206

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open bookmark manager.
2. Create a list of bookmarks, say 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, up to 10.
3. Select bookmarks in a special order, say 2, 5, 3 and 7 (of course by
Ctrl-clicking) Note that the order of selection *DOES* matter.
4. Cut them and paste them back in some place.

Actual Results: Bookmarks are pasted in the order of 7, 3, 5 and 2.

Expected Results: Ignore order of selection and paste bookmarks in the order of
2, 3, 5, 7.
<thinking out loud>how does this interplay with respecting the sort order of the
container you're pasting into? - or do/should we ingore that too?
Well, at least I think the paste order should remain as "2, 3, 5, 7" in Unsorted
View...  For other sorted views... haven't got an idea...
This is probably related to tree's 'selectedItems' array and how it's 
populated. Outliner may work differently, or it may not. Nevertheless, future.

What happens with DnD is:

*Select order does NOT matter :-)
*The global order of the selected items IS reversed: very annoying :-(

*Choosing 'Unsorted' [At first, I thought I could select it, now I can't anymore
:-(] or 'Sorted by Name' or 'Sorted by Location' views does not seem to make ANY
difference... (That may be a different bug !!?)
*I'm not familiar with the views: I guess that I am used to have it work as
"Unsorted" (== do it yourself);
 but my opinion about http://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=85469#c1 would
be to respect the selected view.


Same behaviour with CnP for folders. (CnP for bookmarks is reported broken in
this release.)


This bug may be a blocker for
http://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=84839#c5 !? (I have not try to check
this.)
Depends on: 167335
Regarding dependencies:

*I guess this bug depends on 160019, only to wait for the code "cleanup": the
subjects seem not otherwise related.

*<relf@os2.ru> just made this bug depend on 167335: this does not seem to be the
case based on subject only:
 *85496 is about order. (DnD or CnP)
 *167335 is about Cut and Paste. (only)
*I would rather see 167335 depends on 160019, if needed.

May be there are reasons which I don't know...  My 2 cents' worth.
There is nothing to do unless Paste (bug 167335) is fixed.

I note that Bug 187134 has been marked as a duplicate of this one. But it is
about dragging bookmarks into a folder; is that the same as cutting and pasting?

Like I said in comment 14 (v1.2b), the reverse order effect is still there.


Reply to comment 16:
*Bug 167335 seems fixed since 2002-11-2x.
*What is the next step for bug 85469 ? Wait for bug 160019 (currently targeted
to v1.5a) !?

Bug seems fixed somehow:
DnD now maintains the initial order :-)

The fix may be included in bug 167335 and/or bug 160019 resolutions:
Could pch (= chanial(at)noos.fr) confirm this ?

NB: I assume that this applies to CnP too, but I can't check since 'Cut' seems
allways disabled (= greyed) in this release. See bug 200909.
