April 9th, 2011, 12:50 PM
I have install Firefox from it official PPA but i had these problems:
- History is not working.
- Bookmarks disappeared.
- Back & Froward buttons won't works.

after some googling i found a solution for it in Mozillazine.org Knowledge Base (http://kb.mozillazine.org/Bookmarks_history_and_toolbar_buttons_not_working_-_Firefox).

Steps to fix the problem:
1- Open Firefox profile folder:
Help >> Troubleshooting Information.
& then in Application Basics click on Open Containing Folder
this will open a window of profile folder location.
2- Close Firefox.
3- Delete every file beginning with places.sqlite
4- Restart your Firefox & it will automatically restore your bookmarks
