Bookmarks Bar Fails to Load Bookmarks on First Run of Firefox

We are using non-persistent desktops for a portion of our users and their primary web browser is Firefox, so I have attempted to customize their experience using the mozilla.cfg file which I have created. This mostly works however the very first time it opens the bookmarks I have added to the bookmarks bar fail to load. If they close firefox and re-open they come right up. Unfortunately every time they log into their virtual workstation they have top go through this process since the machine is non-persistent. The code I have used to add the bookmarks is as follows:

try {
var ios = Components.classes["@mozilla.org/network/io-service;1"].getService(Components.interfaces.nsIIOService);
var uri = ios.newURI("https://localhost:61000", null, null);
var navBookmarksService = Components.classes["@mozilla.org/browser/nav-bookmarks-service;1"].getService(Components.interfaces.nsINavBookmarksService);
if (!navBookmarksService.isBookmarked(uri)) {
navBookmarksService.insertBookmark(navBookmarksService.toolbarFolder, uri, navBookmarksService.DEFAULT_INDEX, "Add X");
}
} catch(e) {displayError("firefox.cfg", e);}

Like I said, it works, I just need it to work the first time, not the second.

Any ideas?

If it works the second time it means, that this settings are apllied somwhere to application data/temp or something like that and it's loaded after this process. You must try to refresh/reget this data without restarting firefox.
