The problem exists in different browsers (this screenshot was taken from a firefox), and on different sites (or, at least on physics SE, SO and SF).

I think, somewhere in the code internally the bookmarks are used similarly as the votes, and voting is forbidden for suspended accounts. Maybe here is the problem.

The problems happen exclusively with suspended account, my normal accounts are working fine.

The screenshot is from here (but anywhere happens the same with suspended account).

enter image description here

Extension: It is solved. Suspended accounts it is impossible to create and even remove bookmarks. The popup contains the "Suspended users cannot vote" message.

Extension #2: Now the popup contains the "Suspended users cannot favorite questions" message.

There was a regression in the client code; a fix will be pushed out today.

    So suspended account can't favorite questions? Commented Feb 15, 2015 at 21:45
  • @ShadowWizard remember that favorites are linked with badges, and therefore are prone to being abused,

  • @ShadowWizard Yes, exactly the same popup happens as if I tried to vote.

  • Hmm... Jarrod can't the message be changed to "suspended users cannot favorite questions" instead? Pretty minor, but still.. Commented Feb 16, 2015 at 16:01

    @ShadowWizard fine, fine - next build will have your better error message :) I'm always a bit reluctant to add text for one-offs, due to translation overhead. Commented Feb 16, 2015 at 19:28
  • Don't have a suspended account to see it in action, so taking your word for it. :) Commented Feb 16, 2015 at 19:56
