Do you get any error messages if you run firefox from a terminal?

I think this might be the same problem with sqlite on network drives
that you had attempting a similar thing with liferea, as firefox moved
from using an html file to a sqlite db for bookmarks in version 3. If
that is the case the only think I can think of is to have local copies
of the profile info on each machine and use rsync or a VCS to sync
