Please try it in safe mode.

You'll never believe this. I started in safe-mode, clicked on 'bookmark this page' and it worked. I then clicked again and it didn't work (nothing happened). Try again - it works, yet again - no response! And so on...

It works on the 1st, 3rd, 5th... click and not on the 2nd, 4th, 6th... click.

Also trying to add a new bookmark with the dialog in 'Organize Bookmarks' does not work. i.e. I can enter all the details but clicking 'add' does nothing.

I've checked the permissions of all files under .mozilla/firefox and all files have at least rw for the owner (me).

I ought to add that recently I have been replicating the profile folder between my Windows XP laptop and my Ubuntu PC at home. I copy all files newer or missing from one folder to the other. That works fine, but maybe that's a cause of this problem. If that's not 'allowed' then I'd be grateful if you could explain how to keep two Firefox installations synchronized.

If you are still experiencing this issue in Firefox 3.0 or later, please re-open the bug with steps to reproduce (if they were not part of the original comment).
