Does user netscape have a homedir? Make sure /home/netscape/.netscape has the right permissions (ie. 700, when it's owned by netscape:users).

The user has a homedir, and the permissions to .netscape is OK!. I have even tried to delete the .netscape directory. When netscape is restarted it makes a new .netscape directory, but still it cannot write to the bookmarks file.

maybe your default bookmarks filename is wrong... look in .netscape/preferences.js (it is an ascii text file) and look for bookmark_file...

good luck

Output from cat preferences.jp| grep book
user_pref("browser.bookmark_file", "/e7koffe/.netscape/bookmarks.html");

This really seems to be OK. The problem cannot be about permisssions though netscape is able to write to my cookie-file file wich has the same read and write permissions as the bookmarks-file.

Shouldn't that be ~/e7koffe/.netscape/bookmarks.html or perhaps /home/e7koffe/.netscape/bookmarks.html?
