After changing the computer name of my PC any new bookmark that I attempt to
save is not there after closing and restarting Mozilla.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Change computer name using Windows 2000 Control Panel -> System (under
network identification tag).
2. Restart Windows 2000
3. Start Mozilla
4. Save a bookmark. (The bookmark will show up as saved in the bookmark list.)
5. Close Mozilla
6. Start Mozilla again.
7. Look for the bookmark that was last saved in your list of bookmarks.  It is
not there.

Actual Results:  
The bookmark(s) saved after renaming the PC are gone after restarting Mozilla.

Expected Results:  
The last saved bookmark(s) should still be available as they were before closing
