You can try Corrupt_localstore.rdf
(do not delete the localstore.rdf file in the Firefox program installation folder!)

Note: deleting localstore.rdf will reset the toolbar customizations, so you might first try to rename (e.g. localstore.rdf.sav) to test if that solves it.

That can be a problem with the file places.sqlite.
The file places.sqlite stores both the bookmarks and the history in Firefox 3.

See Bookmarks history and toolbar buttons not working - Firefox (MozillaZine KB)

Its so annoying. Problem persists till 3.0.5 from 1.5.

On opening a new tab URL is messed up. switching between two tabs doesnt change the URL in address bar. So cant copy the links .
