Delete multiple posts at once in Blogger

Recently, I've just found out that Blogger has finally allowed people to delete multiple posts in their blog at once by adding a "delete" option in the drop-down menu, which is available in the post manager.

   But after doing some tests, I found a SERIOUS problem – They DO NOT double check if you really want to delete the posts you selected when you click on the "delete" option: What if you select a lot of posts and want to label them but click on the "delete" option by mistake?

I'm not seeing this item in the drop-down menu. Not even on Blogger in Draft. The drop-down is still called "Label Actions..." in my interface. What's it called in yours? Can you provide a screenshot?

Thanks. I'm definitely not seeing it in my UI in Firefox 3.

Although, when I check the source code those options are there but have style="display:none;" on the OPTION element. Perhaps it's a Firefox bug.

I've just checked in IE6 and they're displayed even though the source code is the same.

As I know, it only shows when you've selected at least 1 post.

Nope. It shows in IE6 with no posts selected and never shows in Firefox no matter how many are selected.

They show up in Safari, too, but not Firefox.

I found that the list being displayed is incomplete, use your keyboard down to navigate the list to bottom. And then you will see the complete actions, remove, publish, delete, etc...
