On the rare occasions when Firefox 3 crashes, running the application again (with both restore previous session or witout) the bookmarks toolbar appears empty. I always close Firefox then run it back again to fix that.

1. Open Firefox
2. Kill Firefox's process from Window's Task Mamager
3. Re-launch Firefox again
Actual Results:  
The Bookmarks Toolbar will appear empty

Expected Results:  
The Bookmarks Toolbar should've appeared as normal

Could you try reproducing the problem in Safe Mode?

Do you have logs for the crashes? (see about:crashes)

Bug 451915 - move Firefox/Places bugs to Firefox/Bookmarks and History. Remove all bugspam from this move by filtering for the string "places-to-b-and-h".

In Thunderbird 3.0b, you do that as follows:
Tools | Message Filters
Make sure the correct account is selected. Click "New"
Conditions: Body   contains   places-to-b-and-h
Change the action to "Delete Message".
Select "Manually Run" from the dropdown at the top.
Click OK.

Select the filter in the list, make sure "Inbox" is selected at the bottom, and click "Run Now". This should delete all the bugspam. You can then delete the filter.
