Flock Browser - Unable to save bookmarks.


I use flock 2.5.2 as my browser, and have recently been unable to save any bookmarks, and use the back and forward buttons (as there is no history being stored) . I can't drag links to the bookmark toolbar either.

I am using Ultimate Edition 2.3 - which is essentially Ubuntu 9.04 underneath all the fancy bits lol.

I downloaded flock as a debian package via the getdeb website..

Will happily post any logs that are needed to help - I'm just clueless as to what would be a good place to start!

Have tried removing flock, and re-installing, and the problem remains..

Any help or suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

Use chmod 777 -R ~/.<hidden folder name>

to give right permissions to flock. Use "ls -la ~/" to find the folder name. It will start by a "."
