Firefox Annoyance: "Reload Live Bookmark" is too close to "Sort By Name"

I love RSS feeds. I've saved a couple dozen Live Bookmarks into my Bookmarks Toolbar in Firefox for ready access to the latest news, views and other bloggery. They update periodically with the latest links, stories and the like, but they sometimes get behind.

As a result, I've been getting into the habit of right-clicking on the Live Bookmark and choosing "Reload Live Bookmark" to make sure I've got the latest and greatest links. Problem is, this selection is right above the "Sort By Name" command. I don't know what's gotten into me, but in the past two weeks, I've accidentally hit sort rather than reload about three or four times.

It's extremely annoying to have to re-arrange your bookmarks after grouping them by subject and placing my favorites up at the top. If I have to do that one more time, I'm going to look into the SDK to write an extension to remove that option. It's driving me crazy.

Update: Here's a solution.
