Talk:Bookmarks not saved

From MozillaZine Knowledge Base

I removed the following section:

==Corrupt localstore.rdf==
A corrupted localstore.rdf file in your profile folder can cause this problem. 
The solutions below will fix it, but you will lose and  toolbar customizations you might have [1]
===Firefox 1.5===
Close Firefox and start it in safe mode. Select "Reset toolbars and controls" 
and choose "Make Changes and Restart"
===Everything else===
With the application closed, open your profile folder and delete localstore.rdf.

The Intro to this article states "This article deals with new bookmarks and changes to and deletions of existing bookmarks not being saved after a restart." However, the above is a separate issue, as I read it, with the "Bookmarks -> Bookmarks this page" not allowing you to create any new bookmarks in the first place. From the forum thread: "Using Firefox 1.5, for the past few days I have been unable to save any bookmarks; (I'm having to save them in I.E.!) Neither "Bookmark this page" nor Control | D will work & clicking 'OK' in the dialog box does nothing - only 'Cancel' will remove it. A complete re-install has not resolved the problem. John."

Maybe we should just tweak the intro so this info belongs? It certainly belongs according to the article title.--Np 17:13, 6 February 2006 (UTC)

Nicely done. Thanks for taking care of it. I'm getting ready to go back to bed now and nurse this cold. Alice Wyman 17:24, 6 February 2006 (UTC)
