Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 394971
Moving -folders- in "Organize Bookmarks" does not work
Last modified: 2008-04-03 09:37:05 EDT
Description of problem:
In firefox "Organize Bookmarks", dragging folders to different locations does
Items work fine, but not folders.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Dragging folders to new locations does nothing at all
Dragging folders to new locations should move them
Not fixed in 126.96.36.199. I see exactly the same thing: can't move folders, but
can move items.
I downloaded from Firefox.com (unfortunately 188.8.131.52, so not quite the same).
That copy does not have the problem, so it seems to be Fedora's version only.
I'm using 184.108.40.206 too, and on my Linux user account, Firefox has the same
problem. When I tried root's Firefox though (in case one or more of my
extensions was causing the problem) I couldn't drag-and-drop the individual
bookmarks either. No errors seemed to be produced in the error console or in the
virtual terminal it was launched from.
However, after uninstalling all the language packs, I could move root's
individual bookmarks again. Still no luck with the folders though.
Can fully reproduce with firefox-220.127.116.11-5.fc9.x86_64
If this issue turns out to still be reproduceable in the latest updates for this
Fedora Core release, please file a bug report in the the upstream bugzilla
located at http://bugzilla.mozilla.org in the particular component.
Once you've filed your bug report to the upstream bugzilla, if you paste the new
bug URL here, Red Hat will continue to track the issue in the centralized
upstream bug tracker, and will review any bug fixes that become available for
consideration in future updates.
Setting status to NEEDINFO, and awaiting upstream bug report URL for tracking.
Thanks in advance.
I am fully up-to-date with yum update (2007-12-20). (Firefox is 18.104.22.168 3.fc8)
I'm on a Pentium 4 system.
I renamed my .mozilla directory to .mozilla.save, ran Firefox, created a couple
of bookmark folders, and then attempted to move them in Organize Bookmarks.
I still see the problem.
Does it really make sense to file a bug upstream? I downloaded the Mozilla
binaries (22.214.171.124), and do not have the problem with their binaries. Just with
the Fedora ones.

This is the key -- OK, if you cannot reproduce it with upstream binaries, we've
got a bad luck. :-) So, no, filing it upstream is not necessary.
And yes, caillon, this could be reproduced with firefox-3.0-0.beta2.2.fc9.x86_64
Any updates on this issue? It's been well over a month and not having this
feature is fairly inconvenient.
I am sorry, yes it is inconvenient, but unfortunately we have no apparently
bigger fishes to fry. Hold on, please.
I just installed the new firefox-188.8.131.52-1.fc8, and this bug is not fixed.
At this point, we're going to only be taking security fixes and major stability
fixes into this release of Fedora. However, we still want to ensure the bug is
fixed in the next version. We'd appreciate if you could test Firefox 3,
available at http://www.mozilla.com/en-US/firefox/all-beta.html or now shipping
as the default in Fedora rawhide and provide feedback as to whether it still
exists so we can file a ticket upstream to try to fix it in Firefox 3 before it
The Firefox 3 beta (Mozilla binaries) is okay.
But that is not surprising. As indicated in replies #1 and #5, the Mozilla
binaries have never had this problem. Only the Fedora binaries.
So I made an attempt to install Fedora 9 alpha to see if the Fedora version of
Firefox 3 has the problem. But I cannot get the install to run. (This is why
it took me so long to reply. I needed to clear a partition to make room for
Fedora 9, and it took me awhile to get around to that.)
Can someone else who is able to run Fedora 9 alpha test to see if this bug is
still present? It's really easy to test. Open Firefox, edit bookmarks (now
under Bookmarks->Show All Bookmarks) and attempt to move a _folder_.
Still I cannot move folder with drag & drop.
I was finally able to get Rawhide installed (beta).
This bug is not present in the current Rawhide Firefox (3.0-0.50.cvs20080327).
