User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.9.0.3) Gecko/2008092417 Firefox/3.0.3
Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.9.0.3) Gecko/2008092417 Firefox/3.0.3

I want to save a site and click the bookmark tab. It drops down but when I click, file bookmark nothing happens. It is not listed anywhere under the tab headings. I use Explorer at this time to save locations.

Reproducible: Always

Can you still create a bookmark by dragging the locationbar favicon to the folder?

I experienced this as well and had to uninstall Firefox 3.0.10.  Since I could no longer add or even edit my bookmarks I went backward, to 

Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.8.1.1) Gecko/20061204 Firefox/2.0.0.1

and lo and behold, the bookmarking feature is working correctly.  Something must have happened when Firefox went from version 2 to version 3.

I am now experiencing this with 

Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.9.1.2) Gecko/20090729 Firefox/3.5.2

The error as copied from the ERROR CONSOLE:

Error: uncaught exception: [Exception... "Component returned failure code: 0x8052000b (NS_ERROR_FILE_CORRUPTED) [nsINavBookmarksService.insertBookmark]"  nsresult: "0x8052000b (NS_ERROR_FILE_CORRUPTED)"  location: "JS frame :: file:///C:/Program%20Files/Mozilla%20Firefox/components/nsPlacesTransactionsService.js :: PCIT_doTransaction :: line 446"  data: no]
