    could you have deleted the folder in which the links are stored in by any chance?

    i've heard several reports of firefox losing bookmarks. you can install a plugin that backs up your bookmarks each time you close firefox.

    on a win2k/xp pc the firefox bookmarks are stored in a single file called bookmarks.html in the location:
    I]driveletter[/I:\documents and settings\I]username[/I\application data\mozilla\firefox\profiles\default.xxx
    (xxx being a string of 3 random characters)

    there may be more than one user profile. do a search of your documents and settings folder for files called bookmarks.html to see if the original file is still lurking somewhere, either in another firefox profile or windows profile.
