Ever since about one week I dealt with a similar problem. Probably I 
managed to solve it. In my case,  it had  to do with problems related to 
the add-on 'Foxmarks', software meant to synchronise the bookmarks of 
Firefox running on two or more computers.

Step 1.
I started Firefox and I found the vanished bookmarks elsewhere under the 
menu  'bookmarks'. Because of some bug in Foxmark, the 'personal 
toolbar' had been shifted from the toolbar to another place that I found 
via the 'bookmarks' menu, under the name 'personal toolbar'. There you 
will might back all the 'lost' bookmarks, as I did.

Step 2.
Last Friday, an update of 'Foxmarks' had been issued. However, one day 
later, it had been withdrawn because of several technical problems. What 
I did:
UNinstall Foxmarks 2.0 via TOOLS>add-ons>extensions
than INSTALL the previous version, 1.01.

Ever since I re-installed Foxmark 1.01 I everything runs smoothly again.

Respectfully Yours,
