Tagging is Hot! Increased motivation to deliver amazing work!

Just took a break from my studying (3/6 exams left to go!) and got some feedback from the Firefox community of my work:

Yes, I understand the concerns in regards to usability and I think this would
provide value to the great improvements of Places.

I believe I can deliver a working patch for final. I am planning to work on it
again this weekend. I am just busy with doing away with exams and all right
now. By next Sat I should be confident to deliver.

And the plot thickens!

A duplicate bug has been identified with my current work in progress (WIP) bug: multi-edit. A user within the community requested for the ctrl-a key stroke to be used in order to edit multiple tags. At first I initally thought my patch incorpated key stroke since the changes that I made to enhance and develop this bug did not have impact on the programmability of the key strokes. However upon further investigation and testing I have identified a problem which needs to be resolved.

– ctrl+a within the tag folder, causes unexpected results: the bookmarks looses their tags.
– standard multiple select key stokes — ctrl+click and ctrl+shift + click comibnations, also causes unexpected results.
– the key stroke, ctrl+a works with regular folders (essentially, non-tags subfolders).

– tag a set of bookmarks with the value of “a”.
– click the “a” tag subfolder.
– enter “, b” to include a new tag.
– select the “search bookmarks” text box to update the tags (ie. trigger the onblur event)

Results: The bookmarks within the “a” tag subfolder disappears. The bookmark location within the regular folders remain the same.
