I want to use the same mozilla-profile

the sgid/suid-bit for the directories
but that doesn't help. Whenever I create
a test-file with 'touch file' it has
only write permissions for the user not
for the group.

look for umask. Maybe setting it to umask 002 in /etc/profile might help you.

umask was set to 022 but setting it to 002 either in /etc/profile or in the kde-console doesn't help for the konqueror or other programs but only for
the kde-console.
