it. And the bookmarks-file should be for us both, too. So what I want
is that mozilla uses the directory
/home/.mozilla/ for storing its files for my wife as well as for me.
Mozilla points
korrekt to the directory but because my wife's account has no write
mozilla is deleting the bookmark file and creates a new empty one.

  mozilla does this as a security/sanity meassure. some programs make
  sure certain user files have appropriate permissions (appropriate for
  "normal use", that is).

  mmm, if you never log in at the same time, you could go for rsync'ing
  directories (or files) that you want the same before login/after
  logout. i think it can work if you do it right (i.e., taking care of
  only syncinc from newer files to older, etc.)

We don't log in at the same time. But what do I win with rsync. I read the man-page and as far as I could find out you can preserve the ownership of a file. But you can't change it. So I have to do a chmod on all the files as well. So why is it better than a cp x y in a ~/.kde/Autostart/copy_mozilla file?
