Happened to me today as well.

Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux x86_64; en-US; rv: Gecko/2008092510
Ubuntu/8.04 (hardy) Firefox/3.0.3

Ubuntu 8.04.1 AMD64 Desktop Linux set 2.6.24-21-generic

No bookmarks, empty bookmark bar, and any attempt to restore it (form
firefox backup or JSON file) failed.

This was NOT after a unclean shutdown, as I shout off Ubuntu using
shutdown button.

I'm NOT using NFS as far as I can tell.

I was NOT out of disk space in /home.

To solve the issue, I copied my .mozilla/firefox folder, deleted old
one, and copied the copy back.

This is a serious bug that should be addressed IMHO since the regular
user who sees his bookmarks disappear will (and rightly) panic.

I'm available to provide any info you need.
