Bookmarks missing: No other similar posts/responses have helped me. Is there a Mozilla technician I can talk to?

It appears my user profile has changed somehow.

I am running Vista SP2 Home Premium with Firefox 17. My settings are the same as the were yesterday (the last time Firefox worked properly), but when I opened Firefox this morning my bookmarks are missing and I cannot add new bookmarks. Also, when attempting to view my history in "Library" nothing is listed, but if I let my cursor sit on "History" without clicking on it (i.e. without opening "Library"), the most recent pages I visited yesterday are listed.

UPDATE: Forgot to mention that none of my toolbars are present and the Add-ons Manager under "Firefox\Add-ons" does not show any plugins, whereas all plugins are shown by accessing "Enabled plugins" via "Troubleshooting Information."

Any guidance would be greatly appreciated.

Problems with bookmarks and history not working properly can be caused by a corrupted places.sqlite database file.

You can check for problems with the places.sqlite database file in the Firefox Profile Folder.
