I have a problem with my bookmarks, cookies, history or settings


OS: OSX 10.6.4 Browser version: Firefox 3.6.8

This has been happening for a while, but it's starting to get very annoying.

This problem does NOT always happen, it seems to happen randomly. It can sometimes be fixed by quitting and re-opening Firefox, but I generally have to quit and open several times. My bookmarks and history will not show up when using the menu bar. (File, edit, view, hist, bookmarks, tools, window, help)

They do, however, show up in my bookmarks toolbar, organize bookmarks, and show all history.

I have tried updated torbutton, but that doesn't change anything.

Any ideas?

Have you tried disabling the Tor button extension? Or any other extensions?

I tried disabling Torbutton, but that didn't change anything. I'm trying disabling my other add-ons now. It's hard to say if it worked or not because the problem doesn't always happen =\

Could anything else cause the problem?

I'm having the same problem but I've yet to be able to get it to work again. I've tried even uninstalling and reinstalling Firefox but it hasn't worked.
