Issue

I have a problem with my bookmarks, cookies, history or settings

Description

Recently installed Google Xmarks and immediately lost any star bookmark functionality. Any new bookmarks I try to create are given the title of the last previous webpage I tried to create (which wouldn"t be a major issue only a nuisance to copy & paste the correct name in) but ALL new bookmarks are directed to some version of "http://ad.yieldmanager.com/iframe3?sI" instead of the correct site. Have diablrd and then uninstalled Xmarks but the problem remains. Use the latest version of Firefox for Linux Ubuntu 9.04. Thanks.
