frozen bookmarks is not always reproducible, it happened to me only the first time, with 08/13 branch still export fails but no bookmarks messed up
Summary: [Linux] Bookmarks export fails and bookmarks are frozen → [Linux] Bookmarks export fails
I can reproduce this with a similar build. The js console shows this error: Error: [Exception... "Component returned failure code: 0x80520012 (NS_ERROR_FILE_NOT_FOUND) [nsIRDFDataSource.DoCommand]" nsresult: "0x80520012 (NS_ERROR_FILE_NOT_FOUND)" location: "JS frame :: chrome://browser/content/bookmarks/bookmarks.js :: anonymous :: line 361" data: no] Source File: chrome://browser/content/bookmarks/bookmarks.js Line: 361 That's in doBookmarksCommand(), this line: BMDS.DoCommand(sourcesArray, rCommand, argsArray); This is a similar problem as bug 255069, although that one's about exporting to a non-default name. But I can't even export using the default name. -> confirming.

This is a dupe of bug 241987. The workaround is that if you touch bookmark.html (or whatever) before exporting then you will be prompted to overwrite, then it will work. The file just has to exist before exporting due to a bug in bookmarks.js.
It is possible to apply the patch from bug 241987 on Linux yourself. You need to have the Java sdk installed. First get rid of fastjar and replace it with the jar from the java kit. fastjar is buggy code. The procedure I found was: cd /tmp cp /usr/local/mozilla/chrome/comm.jar . jar xvf comm.jar Error! CRCs do not match! Got 5e52bf8, expected 6e16769 delete /usr/bin/fastjar and replace with a link to /usr/java/j2sdk1.4.1_01/bin/jar jar xvf comm.jar mv comm.jar comm.orig cd content/communicator/bookmarks/ cp bookmarks.js /tmp/bookmarks.orig patch bookmarks.js patchfile -- or just edit cd /tmp jar cv0f comm.jar content cp comm.jar /usr/local/mozilla/chrome/ restart mozilla - try exporting a new bookmark file - Worked!
Dang. Previous comment was mozilla instructions. Always proofread. Corrected instructions assuming you unstalled in /opt/firefox are: cd /tmp cp /opt/firefox/chrome/browser.jar . jar xvf browser.jar mv browser.jar browser.orig cd content/browser/bookmarks/ cp bookmarks.js /tmp/bookmarks.orig patch bookmarks.js patchfile -- or just edit cd /tmp jar cv0f browser.jar content cp browser.jar /opt/firefox/chrome/ The strange thing is that this patch appears to be there already in: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.6) Gecko/20040207 Firefox/0.8 Did it get removed or lost?
I have same problem on WinMe with 2004-09-01-0.9. Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Win 9x 4.90; ja-JP; rv:1.7.3) Gecko/20040901 Firefox/1.0 PR (NOT FINAL) When export them to no-exist file, I got an error message in JS console: > Error: [Exception... "Component returned failure code: 0x80520012 (NS_ERROR_FILE_NOT_FOUND) [nsIRDFDataSource.DoCommand]" nsresult: "0x80520012 (NS_ERROR_FILE_NOT_FOUND)" location: "JS frame :: chrome://browser/content/bookmarks/bookmarks.js :: anonymous :: line 368" data: no] > Source File: chrome://browser/content/bookmarks/bookmarks.js > Line: 368 And I made an empty file named 'bookmarks.html' and overwrite it, exporting bookmarks successfully finished.
