More fun. If your bookmarks vanish, the Personal Toolbar Folder - where you put things you want to appear on your Personal Toolbar - vanishes as well. You have to create a new folder and designate one. But Mozilla won't let you create a new folder at the root of your bookmarks folder if it's empty, so first you need to make one useless bookmark. Then, in "Manage Bookmarks", select View -> Set folder as Personal Toolbar Folder. But it doesn't bloody work! The string "NC:PersonalToolbarFolder" appears in the location field for your selected folder, but vanishes if you restart Mozilla. So after a bit of Googling for that phrase I found this: http://www.linuxquestions.org/questions/archive/2/2003/05/3/59926 Which explained that you have to edit the bookmarks.html file BY HAND, and insert the aforementioned string into the tag designating your toolbar folder. What a load of bollocks.
