"personal toolbar items" placed on the right side of the menu bar doesn't appear if Firefox starts on a heavily loaded system.

Steps to reproduce:
1. rightclick empty space on toolbar, pick "customize..."
2. drag "Bookmarks Toolbar Items" from Bookmarks toolbar to Menu toolbar.
3. rightclick empty space on toolbar, uncheck "Bookmarks Toolbar" (which is currently empty).
4. Close Firefox.
5. Increase system/disk load significantly (start loading OpenOffice, or some more heavyweight programs, or reboot system and perform the next action as soon as desktop appears, while all the tray items are still loading)
6. Start Firefox.

Expected result:
Firefox is returned to state from before closing it, bookmarks toolbar right from the menu bar.
Actual result:
"Bookmarks Toolbar Items" does not appear on the toolbar. It can be found among the unused elements of "customize" menu, to be dragged to a desired location. 

Closing Firefox and starting it anew on an unencumbered system sometimes helps. You can also recover it by "customize..." dialog and placing it back where you placed it before.

I've repeated this bug:
- on Windows XP, 400MHZ PC, 256MB RAM - happens almost always.
- on Ubuntu, Asus eee 900, 1GB RAM, 900MHZ - happens most of the time.
- on Windows XP, 1.4GHZ, 768MB RAM - happens under heavy system load.
- on Windows XP, 2.4GHZ, 2GB RAM - about never happens.

why should "Bookmarks Toolbar Items" appear on the toolbar? you moved them in Step 2 to another location. the change/position is persisted across sessions.

another note: please always note the version of Fx you're getting the bug with and if the bug occures extension-less/in a new profile.

Can confirm this in Archlinux with Firefox 3.5.2-1.

System doesn't need to be under heavy load, this happens every time I open Firefox. I can recover it by opening Customize and clicking Done (no need to re-drag).
