firefox manage bookmarks appears broken

I have Firefox 3.6.13.
I cannot manually rearrange bookmarks. The help file says to open the bookmarks in the sidebar and manually drag entries to the desired position.

They do not drag.

In times past, clicking on bookmarks/manage bookmarks opened a window where one could drag entries to desired locations. That no longer works as well.

Short of editing the html file directly with emacs, how do I rearrange my bookmarks?

It works for me, on 3.6.13. Did you do a Ctrl + Shift + O ??? Once you do that, you can drag and drop bookmarks around in the right panel.

Thanks. That works. Why opening the sidebar from the menus fails I do not know.
