After upgrading to the firefox 4.0.1, my bookmarks toolbar is empty. If I go to the bookmarks tab I can see my bookmarks in the bookmarks toolbar tab, so they are still there. I did the restart with addons disabled and clicked the bookmark box and they did show up in safe mode, but when I restarted they were gone again.

I also had the problem of disappearing toolbar bookmarks, in Firefox 4. The problem seems to be with the Google Toolbar.

EXPERIMENT: If the Google Toolbar is activated (all other extensions off), I can reproduce the bookmarks toolbar becoming empty by customizing a button to a different position (I moved the Home button between the back/forward arrows and the location bar). When I do that, the otherwise hidden Menu Bar does not automatically disappear and I cannot customize further. The next time I open FF, the bookmarks toolbar is empty. If I turn off the Google Toolbar as well (i.e. all extensions disabled), the behavior described above does not occur. Turn it on again and the problem is back...

SOLUTION(S) (worked for me): 1. Restore bookmarks toolbar:

  1a. Right click empty area within a toolbars
  1b. Customize... 
  1c. Restore default set
  1d. Restart Firefox

2. Avoid future disappearance of the toolbar bookmarks:

  2a. Disable or remove the Google Toolbar (it's a shame for some of the features, I know)
  2b. Restart Firefox
 (2c. Customize toolbars as you normally would)

I hope this saves somebody some of the frustration I experienced over this...
