User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.8.1) Gecko/20061010 Firefox/2.0
Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.8.1) Gecko/20061010 Firefox/2.0

I think this problem affects only laptops. I have Sharp and Gateway laptops. Sharp is constantly using electricity (battery is dead). Gateway has working battery. When I trip over a power cord when Firefox is running (or after noticing this problem I was pulling out power cord deliberately)  and restart computer all my bookmarks are lost. This problem affects every Firefox browser from as early days as 0.7. What version 2 added is that now every time I start computer (normally or in a way described above) icons are big, all icon customization  is lost but bookmarks not necessary are lost.
Firefox version 2 was automatically updated. Might be it has something to do with old browser profile???

Reproducible: Sometimes

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Laptop, running from power outlet. No battery used. 
2.Power cord suddenly unplugged while Firefox is running.
3.Start Firefox as normal.

Actual Results:  
Lost bookmarks. Lost icon customization- placement, size.

Expected Results:  
No lost bookmarks and customization

Default theme. 

Sharp laptop- windows xp, service pack 1
Gateway laptop- windows xp service pack 2

Don't forget to make a regular copy of your profile folder Mozilla (in Application Data) to prevent these problems the next time.
