I'm not sure, but you could try editing /home/public/bookmarks.html, or overwriting it with another bookmarks file from firefox.  Don't forget to make a backup of the original one first, just in case.

I'll try again, but on the last reboot on "diskless" it seems to have reverted to nothing.  Will keep you posted

After adding a bookmark, close the firefox browser withe file/exit from the menu, not the big button as that will not give firefox the opportunity to save its bookmarks.

looks like that's a usability bug we need to deal with, probably at the xul level.
