Try a new profile. Start FB like this:

"path:\to\firebird\mozillafirebird.exe" -p

To prevent bookmarks from disappearing again, try this extension:

Assuming you're on some windows OS
Start Menu -> Run...
Find MozillaFirebird.exe and add -P to the end of the address.

Add quotes around it like this:

"D:\Documents and Settings\Pike\Desktop\MozillaFirebird\MozillaFirebird.exe" -P

i was able to create a new profile and whatnot with ver 0.7 and when i started it up in the new profile, the default bookmarks showed up in the toolbar. however, when i copied the backup of my bookmarks.html file back into the new profile folder i suddenly got had the problem back again. i swear the bookmarks.html was the only file i copied.
