Very annoying!!! I have also noticed that drag/drop in the Bookmarks menu doesn't seem that responsive. It is easier to drag something down than move it up. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Arrange your bookmarks in a particular fashion. 2. Close and restart Firefox. 3. The bookmarks will be jumbled and mixed, even shifted between separators. Expected Results: Firefox should have left my bookmarks how I arranged them.

how are you "arranging" bookmarks? with drag&drop? in the Library, in the sidebar, in the menu?
(In reply to comment #1) > how are you "arranging" bookmarks? with drag&drop? in the Library, in the > sidebar, in the menu? > I'm dragging and dropped in both the sidebar and the Library. Either way they shift into an arbitrary order upon restarting the browser. I have NOT been using any of the sorting functions, since I want the sidebar to look a specific way in a specific order.
this WFM in Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 6.0; en-US; rv:1.9pre) Gecko/2008041506 Minefield/3.0pre can you try to reproduce launching Firefox in Safe Mode? This way extensions will be disabled. Do you have any bookmark related extension?

I did notice, however, that this seems only to affect the Bookmarks Menu folder. The Unfiled Bookmarks folder stays put if I rearrange it: http://www.flickr.com/photos/9066281@N07/2419673382/sizes/l/ That shows the before photo (after I had rearranged some bookmarks in Safe Mode) and the after photo (after restarting FF in safe mode). Also this bug only occurs (I believe) after you move a bookmark. If you don't change anything, everything will stay set from session to session.
I have ubuntu and have same problem, firefox doesñ't save changes in bookmarks, if I delete or add bookmarks after restart firefox those are missed.
Tested with Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.9.2a1pre) Gecko/20090203 Minefield/3.2a1pre Ubiquity/0.1.4 This is not reproducible for me.
