Firefox 3 keeps losing my bookmarks

Hi All,

My home network consists of a few workstations that NFS-mount my home 
directory which is hosted on a central CentOS 5.2 server (clients use 
use autofs). Ever since I installed F9, I have lost my bookmarks several 
times, and it seems that my whole profile gets corrupted. I have tried 
both "async" and "sync" options with autofs, and it doesn't seem to make 
a difference.

While it would seem that soft linking my profile to a local folder would 
solve the issue, it would also mean that my profile would not follow me 
between workstations. Is there anything I can do?

I have seen mumblings on various forums that lead me to believe that 
Firefox doesn't work terribly well with NFS mounted profiles. Is this 
true? If so, it would seem to be rather short-sighted, seeing as NFS is 
the primary method of file sharing in Unix/Linux. Help!!! :)

Thanks in advance!
