  1. Fx3b5 Bookmarks issues - import from Fx2 & organising Bookmarks Toolbar (Folder)

    New install and profiles of Fx3b5 on Vista 64.
    Importing my Fx2 bookmarks from file (bookmarks.html) using
    "Bookmarks > Organize Bookmarks > Import and Backup > Import" results
    in the Fx2 "Bookmarks Toolbar Folder" being under the "Bookmarks Menu"
    tree, and in Fx3 it's called "Bookmarks Toolbar" without the "Folder".
    That's okay.

    My Fx2 "Bookmarks Toolbar Folder" contained individual bookmarks,
    folders with a mix of individual bookmarks and sub-folders with
    bookmarks, and a couple of folders where I'd saved all tabs.

    Using Organize Bookmarks (Library), selecting the Fx2 "Bookmarks
    Toolbar Folder" under the "Bookmarks Menu" tree in the LHS pane where
    they were after importing, selecting all (Ctrl+A) in the RHS pane and
    Cut from the context menu, selecting the new Fx3 "Bookmarks Toolbar"
    in the LHS pane then Paste from the context menu of the RHS pane,
    results in no bookmarks from the sub-folders of folders on the
    Bookmarks Toolbar. It's reproducible here. Selecting all and using
    drag and drop or "Organize > Move" works okay without the bookmarks
    missing from sub-folders. There is no "Move" on the context menu.

    In Fx3b5 "Bookmark all tabs" (in a folder) to the "Bookmarks Toolbar"
    silently fails if the "Show all the bookmarks folders" drop-down
    button is used to expand on the "Bookmark All Tabs dialog.

    Also tried the above in a new Fx3b5 profile and no extensions.

    I don't know and didn't look if they are known issues, but tried to
    figure out what the problem was and find workarounds that WFM.

    Two questions:

    1. Is the toolbar with 'normal' buttons or being able to add buttons
    to the toolbar just MIA or gone for good?

    2. When a bookmark is selected, there's a "More" button to show
    Keyword and Description. Can this be made sticky to always show?
