Bookmarks toolbar missing on launch
I lost my bookmarks toolbar one time, lots of other places related stuff didn't work. I got the following error in the error console. Error: aUrlString is null Source File: resource:///modules/PlacesUIUtils.jsm Line: 938 After, restarting the problem was fixed.
It looks like I also lost all of my history after this.

(In reply to comment #3) > I do. Well, that'd be why you lost your history. As to why it got marked corrupt... Have you been using older builds by chance?
I took a look at some more stuff: - my places.sqlite got shrunk down to 10MB (I can send it if needed) - keywords were broken - history recording worked, but awesome bar results would get page titles from my bookmarks instead of the history - I have a places.sqlite.corrupt file I may have run an older debug build inbetween restarting my nightly of firefox.
Also, I was able to fix all of the problems by restoring my old places.sqlite from backup.
(In reply to comment #5) > I may have run an older debug build inbetween restarting my nightly of firefox. Do you have a date from that older build? There was a time on trunk where we had some broken code that could not deal with some newer stuff. Anything pre beta 8 is bad.
The build is from 20101013150517 http://hg.mozilla.org/mozilla-central/rev/0ddf0b396d15 I tried running the build again, and it again broke my places file.
Current trunk or beta profiles cannot downgrade to nightlies or betas released before 10 December, and this seems to be the case. Btw, it's common suggestion to never use the same profile across different versions (unless it's a classic upgrade to a newer version)
