I'm not sure what you try to do, but what you have on the clipboard when you create a new bookmarks folder is still the heading you previously copied to the clipboard and not a suitable folder name.

When you create a new bookmark then this bookmark gets the page title as name and the URL as the location. The default folder is the "Other Bookmarks" folder. If you would want to create a new folder then you either need to type the name in the New Folder field or have placed a name on beforehand on the clipboard, so you can paste this in the New Folder field.
