I was probably in a yahoo finance page when browser shut down.  On restart, it
appeared that I had never setup the browser.  All history, favorites, etc were
gone.  

Reproducible: Didn't try

Steps to Reproduce:
1.unknnown--crashed after using firefox for about a month
2.
3.

Actual Results:  
I have restarted firefox from scratch, but am concerned about using it.
1. Can you check that no instances of firefox.exe are first running
2. Using a command prompt, go to your firefox directory (eg: C:\program
files\mozilla firefox\)
3. enter "firefox.exe -profilemanager" and press return
4. See if your old profile with all your old bookmarks/cookies/etc is there.
