Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. install N6.1 daily build 2. modify bookmarks 3. uninstall N6.1 daily build 4. re-install N6.1 daily build 5. look at bookmarks, notice they're empty
Because of Bug 80746, I submitted from a different system than is causing the problem. Changing platform and OS. BuildID should also read: 2001051408.
OS: Windows 2000 → Mac System 9.x
Hardware: PC → Macintosh
and this is marked Netscape Confidential because....?!
the ns confidential flag needs to be removed if this bug is going to remain open.
Moving and Marking NEW.

I doubt this is an install problem, we just slap down the files that the build team puts in the package. AFAIK the installer doesn't know anything about profiles, so its hard to believe we could reach in and zap them. Maybe the profile (migration?) system has gone mad.
Mitch, Can you try this on a more recent build? To remigrate a 4.x profile, you will need to remove Documents folder on hard drive and Mozilla Registry in hard_drive:system folder:preferences. Do you have only one 4.x profile? thanks
Hong, can you please be sure we test for this?
tested on branch build 2001091405 using steps below unable to reproduce using migrated or new profile (added bookmarks to both) marking worksforme, please reopen if this recurs
