I have 2 different gmail/google accounts. I'm usually logged into both. When I set up Google Bookmarks and dragged the bookmarklet to the toolbar, all was well. It was associated with the right profile and recorded bookmarks accordingly. However, for some reason, from time to time, it switches to the other profile. When I click on the bookmarklet, it will show me which profile Google Bookmarks is using, including my picture. Like gmail, clicking on my picture shows a dropdown list of my Google profiles. However, where selecting from the list in gmail takes me to gmail for that profile, selecting here instead opens a new windows showing my bookmarks for that other profile. It doesn't switch the bookmarklet window so that I can actually store the bookmark in the other profile.

Is there an easy way to fix this? So far, the only way I've been able to "fix" the bookmarklet and have it associate with the profile with which I want to use it is to log out of the other profile. And that seems to be temporary. I'm sure there's a simple way to fix, but its beyond me.
