Thunar saves local bookmarks well, but it "forgets" bookmarks directing to SMB shares. If I add them in Thunar, they are saved in ~/.gtk-bookmarks and remain there while I am logged in. Once I log out and log in again and start Thunar, only the bookmarks starting with "file:///" are read in and displayed in Thunar, those that begin with "smb://" are skipped. I wonder how I could tell Thunar to also read in SMB bookmarks instead of ignoring them?
