    This is how I fixed it myself....

    I take no credit for this, I saw it here in someone else's post... and it has already helped others...

    This applies if you have a jailbroken phone, and you are using the "categories" app or other to hide some icons...

    Just unhide the "mail" app and your bookmarks will work like they are supposed to.

    For whatever reason, when the mail app icon is hidden, it does what you described before (I have only seen it happen in firmware 3.0)

    Thanks, it appears that this is related to the "mail bookmark" button in safari. If the mail app is hidden, this button does not appear and for whatever reason both other options will link you to add bookmark to home screen.
