Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 438099
2fer - Bookmarks not diplaying; and Bookmark Organizer/History Manager (Library) are not functioning.
Last modified: 2008-03-19 18:01:11 EDT
Greetings, Ladies and Geeks - this one's a two-fer:
Description of problems:
1) Bookmarks don't get displayed. - I get a smidgin (.5mm? wide) of what may be
the first branch of the menu selection-tree texbox.
2) When "Bookmarks>Organize Bookmarks or "History>Show All History" is selected
from the Menu Bar, a Library Window Opens.
The Library Window appears to host the History/Bookmark functions, but appears
to be completely nonfunctional as in:
-no history is displayed
-no bookmarks are displayed (even "new" ones)
-preexistent bookmarks (before this latest update) are gone
-unable to import bookmarks from Opera nor from an html file
-unable to export...since nothing's displayed - (Bada-Bing!)
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.9b5pre) Gecko/2008031714 Fedora/
Try to use Bookmarks and History
Something that at least displays some data - I know this is Alpha (and you're
rushing to make the Beta Release Deadline), folks; but someone should have
walked though the basic functional parameters before releasing this.
IMHO - if uncorrected, it would impact the adoption of the Beta version of FC9.
if it can't be fixed in time, I recommend directing users to to other browsers,
Epiphany (in repo) or
Opera - their FC8 version works on this version

Reporter, is there anything interesting and special about your system? Any
special plugins (try to reproduce with -safe-mode to firefox)? Are you able to
reproduce with firefox from
ftp://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/firefox/releases/3.0b4/linux-i686 ? Could you try to
move ~/.mozilla somewhere out of the way -- is the issue still reproducable?
<WEARING ASS-HAT MODE>
My apologies for jumping to conclusions on this one - I walked through your
troubleshooting protocols (downloading b4 and trying regular and safe modes for
b4/b5 - couldn't find ".mozilla" though); and encoutered various degrees of the
Library Window and Bookmark functional capabilities. Most of it worked in the
By furthering the process of elimination, it would appear that the TorButton
Add-on is causing the entries to disappear on 3.0b4/b5. Disabling that Add-on
brought everything back to "normal" per se.
I'll drop a line with the Torbutton crew.
Owe you guys one - give me a call if you need a keyboard-trained mammal to do
some more UAT.

OK, then it is apparently NOTABUG (meaning, not our bug).
