FF Bookmarks not being saved


Hey,
When I try storing bookmarks or bookmark folders it doesn't work.
What the problem is is; they store for that very session, but when I restart, close, or re-open FF no bookmark /folders are saved anymore.
I don't know if it's anything to do with write-permissions to the folders or anything but I still am not very used to ubuntu so don't really know what I'm doing very well.

Thanks.

Maybe you just need to edit preferences and check privacy options in Firefox.

Nope. Not that.
I've always done it this way aswell when I was on Windows.

Open /home/you/.mozilla/firefox/pn6y6lfh.default/localstore.rdf and delete localstore.rdf file.Post if it works after that.

Yeah. And there is a localstore.rdf file there too. Should I delete that one?

So far it's working. But I've only restarted FF. I'll post back tomorrow morning/afternoon. Depends when I wake up, and get back to you about it though.

But thanks for the help so far.

Hey. It's working now.
Thanks.

Though, just so I know. What did I just do? Rather than delete that localstore.rdf file.
