When starting, Thunar skips bookmarks that point to remote filesystems. This was previously raised here:

http://old.nabble.com/In-Thunar-v1.2.1-bookmarks-are-not-persistent-tt30829195.html

So I'm filing this as requested. I've also attached a patch that fixes this. However it's a little ugly: if the remote filesystem isn't mounted when thunar starts, it will initially show the URI. Once you select it, the remote filesystem will be mounted and the bookmark changes to its more permanent form.

Not sure if mounting it on starting thunar would be the right thing to do, so I'm submitting the patch as is.

Hi!I install Thunar 1.5.I have WebDav storage.

1.Now bookmark for storage saved,but when I open it-I have a copy of this bookmark in sidepanel.If I disconect bookmark,it hide.But I cannot reconect to storage from bookmark and from address Bar.Restart Thunar window is helped.
2.If I want save bookmar I must drag and drop from address Bar.Maybe add options to save bookmark from side panel(choose storage>Right Mouse Bottom>Add bokkmark) or from Adress bar?
And adding option save bookmark to folders in web storage.
3.How to connect to storage if I used Bottoms in Adress Bar?MAybe add options in Side panel in NETWORk-Open Web Storage?

1 Is fixed in master.

2 Implemented, was already on the TODO list, but you have to make a development release at some point.

3 Ctrl+L

4 That is probably handled by gvfs + gnome-keyring. It also supports uri://username:<email address hidden>

The clones will merge in the next release, need to figure out a consistent way to implement this.
