Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 0. Save your bookmarks in a file by slecting Bookmarks/Manage Bookmarks... and then from the window that pops up, Tool/Export... (This isn't really necessary to show the problem, but helpful for afterwards. :-) 1. From the browser (Navigator) select Edit/Preferences... 2. Under the Navigator tree click on History 3. Press the button in the Location Bar History section labeled "Clear Location Bar" 4. Exit the browser (File/Exit) 5. Start the browser again Actual Results: The bookmarks stored in the main menu's Bookmarks item are gone. Expected Results: Cleared location bar history information only, not my bookmarks too. This is related to the meta-bug 203343. I can't find any other bug that is directlly related. My bookmarks are stored in C:\Documents and Settings\leavens\Application Data\Mozilla\Profiles\default\rxuyper0.slt\bookmarks.html There is a separate history.dat file there.
I was sure that the steps given make the bookmarks be lost, but trying it yet again I can't reproduce the problem. I'm sorry, but I will try to figure out what really causes this to happen. Perhaps the history has to be a certain size? I don't know. Sorry for the bother.
