Hi there,
my Firefox-Installation at home works as following:
- Firefox 3.6.9 is installed on my workstation and my laptop
- /home/jimini/.mozilla/firefox is a NFS-share from my fileserver, so I have the same Firefox-environment on every client in my network
- this directory is owned by jimini on every involved system
- jimini has the same id on every involved system
- I use an addon named "organize search engines" in Firefox

The problem:
When I switch between laptop and workstation, my settings in the addon "organize search engines" are set to default, for example: I use Firefox on my workstation and change some settings in the addon. I shut down the workstation and use Firefox on my laptop - the settings are set to default.
I change the settings again and shut down the laptop, use Firefox on my workstation and the settings are set to default again.
=> So this addon works fine until I use Firefox on another system.

This problem is very annoying, since I use this addon really often. Does anyone have an idea how to solve it? Helpful comments are appreciated.

/etc/exports on the fileserver:
Code:
/home/jimini/Profile/Firefox 10.0.0.4(sync,rw,no_subtree_check) 10.0.0.10(sync,rw,no_subtree_check) 10.0.0.11(sync,rw,no_subtree_check)


The firefox-directory on the fileserver, which is shared:
Code:
ls -alt Firefox/
