Hello.
Problem statement is very simple: Firefox will not create bookmarks.
New installation with Mint 17. New PC build with Asus A58M-A/USB3 mother board, AMD A4 6300 processor, 4 gig memory stick.
All of the Mint and Firefox packages are up to date.
A new profile was created for testing, Firefox has been started in safe mode, purged and re-installed and reset to defaults. None of these actions have helped.
Here is the info from the Troubleshooting Information within Firefox
