Firebird bug? Right-click Bookmark menu and subitems won't fold out afterwards

    Before pestering Bugzilla with a superfluos bug report, I wanted to ask
    here if anyone has had a similar problem:

    Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.6b) Gecko/20031216
    Firebird/0.7+

    When I right-click a subitem on the Bookmark menu, e.g. Bookmarks->My
    Stuff->Programs->SomeUrl, and then escaping out and don't perform any
    action on the URL, such as Delete or similar, Firebird won't show the
    subitems under Bookmarks->My Stuff anymore.

    Only the main menu "Bookmarks" is shown with its subitems, but the
    little arrow at e.g. "My Stuff" won't show me anything, and I have to
    restart Firebird to get the subitems under "My Stuff" back.

    If, on the other hand, I perform some action on the URL, such as
    choosing "Properties," the problem isn't there.

    It seems to me that some resource goes out of scope and is inaccessible
    to the app if you don't perform an action.

    There are no crashes involved, however. Only this slightly annoying
    behaviour. I know about it so I can avoid it, but still...

    Anyone...?

    This is a known bug with Firebird. Hopefully this will be fixed soon.

    Okay, thanks. I'll keep downloading updates and I suppose they
    eventually will nail that little bug. :)

  4. LOL. In the time it took you to write that post, you could have went to
    Bugzilla and looked whether it was a known bug or not. ;)

    No, it didn't. That's why I asked. I got too many hits to sift through
    in a resonable amount of time. After all, I'm a typographer by trade
    (since 24 years, give or take a few) so it took me less time to type
    that up than going through all those hits.
