When I create a bookmark the name and project that I enter are not saved when I click Close.

The manual says there should be an OK button but there isn't. Using QGIS 1.8

It might help to include a screenshot of what you are entering, and then what is in the window when you reopen it. When you are creating a new bookmark, are you using the New Bookmark option under the View menu, or are you using the Show Bookmarks option and then using the Add button in the Geospatial Bookmarks window? A little more detail on the process may help narrow down where the error is occurring. – Get Spatial Aug 19 '12 at 8:43
I tried both methods, and it works as expected with Windows 7. – AndreJ Aug 19 '12 at 12:48

After entering text in a field in the bookmarks menu you just need to 'click off it' by clicking once in some other row for the changes to be saved.

I prefer to avoid using the close button on the bookmarks menu. :)
