Bug Description

I opened firefox.
I went to the website www.google.com.
I selected "Bookmark This Page" in the menu "Bookmarks".
Firefox showed me this xml error:

----
XML Parsing Error: syntax error
Location: chrome://browser/content/bookmarks/addBookmark2.xul
Line Number 1, Column 1:

I use hoary with firefox version 1.0.2-0ubuntu5.1 (upgraded today 12 may 2005).

I cannot reproduce that bug on my machine (i386 Hoary, also using
1.0.2-0ubuntu5.1). But one other person on IRC tonight has said to have
experienced this bug as well, so obviously it is occuring for some users.

please try quitting firefox, removing ~/.mozilla/firefox/*/XUL.mfasl; and

It did remove the problem.

by the way, it occured just after upgrading to the new version today. I had not
changed anything on my system. Sorry if it was not a bug ;)

I had same problem with firefox 1.0.6-0ubuntu0.1 in hoary. The above fixed it
perfectly.

I assume that this bug has been fixed now. If not then it's probably rather
late. If there are still problems worth looking at, please get back to me
(reopen or refile the bug).

Thanks.
