That was some serious system crash you had then. It totally delete your saved profile then. After you get Firefox uninstalled and reinstall i would do what EricB suggested and load you profile somewhere else in case it happens again. Im sorry but i dont think there will be anything we can do to help on this one.

This is wierd. The same thing happened to me. The computer crashed, I restarted and all the favorites were gone. Really wierd. I couldn't fix it either.

It definately sounds as if the profiles are not saving on shut down correctly since they are being deleted on a system crash. Either that or they were in use when the system crashed.
