Arrrrrggggghhhhh!!!  This is really crazy!

Testing some more so created a new 'test' profile.
First step, went into Edit/Preferences and customised that slightly as I usually do
Blank page on start, 'about:blank' home page, always clear private data on closing, use smooth scrolling, don't check for Firefox updates.
In short, nothing unusual or dramatic.
Closed Firefox and restarted it, no problem with bookmarks.
I don't want or use the Bookmarks Toolbar so deselected it, restarted Firefox again.
Bookmarks from the menu are back to the same problem - offering to bookmark the current page!!
Note that absolutely nothing had been done with the menu item Bookmarks other than each time Firefox started clicking on it to see what it tried doing.
Nothing I did to that profile corrected the problem.

Deleted the profile and repeated the same sequence with a fresh profile ('newtest').
Menu item Bookmarks worked correctly!

Doubt that the hardware is an issue (dual core P4 3200, 1.5GB RAM, ATI
Radeon graphics card), thought maybe fglrx by some remote weirdo might
have been involved but the saw that Cecil is using an Nvidia non free
