I have looked at the KB on this issue but none of them seem to answer my problem. I have a late model Macbook Pro undated OS. No addons. I am UNABLE to bookmark in anyway. That is not just save, I am not able with any method I am aware of to bookmark. If I click on the star icon it does not fill in. If I use shortcut keys the Bookmarks menu item highlights while I hold the key combo down. If I use the pull down menu nothing happens. Any help would be appreciated.

If you close Firefox, then start Firefox in Safe Mode, does the problem still occur? For instructions on starting in Safe Mode, see Troubleshoot Firefox issues using Safe Mode.

We'll also need some more info about your Firefox setup. Go to Help > Troubleshooting Information, then click Copy all to Clipboard. Open a reply to this post, and go to Edit > Paste to paste the info from your Troubleshooting Information page.

Yes this happens in Safe Mode. Mac OS X 10.6.4. Firefox was a "clean" install. I did not import any bookmarks. Nothing fancy on my Mac Powerbook Pro, only 2 months old. Firefox TS Info to follow:
