are you trying to write them to a place that the user doesn't have write access?

heh.. i've questioned that myself.. it is in my /home/user directory.. ls -l shows user and group user(s)..

gimme try again.. nope, still not saving the bookmark.. btw, my distro is slackware 10.. there were a couple of things i chmodded before getting mozilla to work.. i don't think the browser is at fault when it is capable of bookmarking web pages but unable to export.. any ideas..?

Bookmarks > Manage Bookmarks > Tools > export
