Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1.Add some bookmarks 2.quit Camino 3.Reopen Camino Actual Results: The added bookmarks were gone Expected Results: they should have stayed
Unable to reproduce with the 2003091702 NB. Does this still happen if you use a fresh profile?
where is your home dir? on a networked server?
The problem came when I downloaded one build, and it just showed up as a directory. I had to wait for the next build to download a working version, and since then it's been acting screwy. I am not using a networked home directory. The problem exists for all the users on my computer, and they each have their own homes, so I don't see how the profile would fix it.
if it happened when you started a particular version, can you go back to a certain date build and have it work again? that would help us narrow down the problem.
I had the same problem when I downloaded 1.5rc1 and 1.5rc2 of Mozilla for Mac OS. When I went back to 1.4, the bookmarks no longer disappeared. It almost always happens, but not 100% of the time. I'm using OS 10.1.5 -- don't know if that is related to the problem.
I too am using 10.1.5, which might be part of the problem. I'm not sure where to go to download outdated nightly builds, except of course for the milestone build. Is that one good enough?
I hope this helps. Build ID 2003082702 puts down "bookmarks.xml" into my profile. Build ID 2003100911 removes "bookmarks.xml", and writes "_bookmarks_temp.bak". As far as I can tell, all builds after 2003082702 do this on my two machines. Both are running 10.1.5 . One is a Quicksilver G4, the other is a 2001 iBook. This happens consistently with any build after 2003082702 (on my machines): 1. Install new build 2. Launch new build 3. New build finds current bookmarks 4. When I quit new build, it overwrites the .xml file, with the .bak file 5. The new .bak file always has the default bookmarks. 6. If I delete (or change/add) any bookmarks, the changes are lost once quit, and relaunched. Anyway, I have been sitting on build #2003082702 since I notitced this prob, hope this info helps. I would like to help my favourite browser along! Well done everyone... PS: please excuse any etiquette slips - I am not certain if I am supposed to change the status or anything.
I've had this same problem. I'm currently running a 2003070404 build of Camino on Mac OS X 10.1.5. I'd upgraded in September to a newer nightly build and pretty consistently lost my booksmarks. The one odd this about my setup is that I have my home directory on a seperate partition of my hard drive. Could that be the culprit?
Mac OS 10.1.5 Recent builds eg: 20031009 I have the same bug going on with my computer. David, it doesn't seem to be a partition problem since I've installed it both ways (on same partition as "home"/ on different partition) and get the same disappearing new bookmarks (and revert to defaults) problem each time the camino program is quit and restarted. I've decided to stay with 20030306 (which keeps my bookmarks) until the problem gets fixed. BTW--I suggest copying and saving your bookmarks file in another directory every so often. It really sucks losing all the bookmarks you've collected over the last few months.
can we confirm that this also happens in mozilla? if so, we need to kick it over there and make the person responsible fix the regression. i think we can probably pin down the problem to the xml parser changes in early september (iirc) if we try hard enough.
Current builds of Mozilla have a similar problem but do not revert back to a default bookmark set. It may just be that there is no backup file for the bookmarks to revert to. I am unsure how it works. Mozilla seems to delete the bookmarks.html file on quit and then it is impossible to add bookmarks to the toolbar. This does not happen with Camino but there may be fail-safes build into Camino that I don't understand. For similar bookmark disappearance I suggest: http://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=221037 I do not know if these problems are the same or at least linked. I leave this up to others.
sounds like it's a problem on the mozilla end, but should fix for the 10.1 crowd. unfortunately, i don't have any access to a 10.1 machine.

Does the recent patch for 221843 fix this bug? I don't have 10.1 to test and the descriptions look like they overlap nicely.
Sorry, I'm running 10.3 now so I can't test in 10.1 any longer, but the bug is not an issue in 10.3 for me.
pat can you confirm this is fixed? i'm gonna mark it fixed, please reopen if it is still a problem.

Sorry it took me so long to get back to you. I'm away on Winter vaccation. It works! My bookmarks are staying yay! (At least so far.) Was it a Mozilla side problem or a Camino one?
