Default Seamonkey bookmark problem

I've recently upgraded NetBSD to 5.0.2, i386. No major new problems.

But I'm having a small problem with Seamonkey, googled and found nothing, and downloaded the latest package seamonkey-2.0.3.tgz from

http://nyftp.netbsd.org/pub/pkgsrc/packages/NetBSD/i386/5.0/All

today and it still happens.

The problem is it won't save bookmarks. I can bookmark a page, and it will appear under the Bookmarks menu for the rest of the session, but if the browser's quit and re-started, any bookmarks that were added are forgotten.

Does anyone else have this problem, or have any ideas?

Thanks.

Just a random thought, but did you check the bookmark file's permissions?

Hi Carpetsmoker, and thanks, you nailed it! The permissions were 400, so I changed to 600 and it's working now. I wonder how they got like that (as they were right at one time)? I should have thought of that too. Thanks again.
