History disappeared in middle of session, Firefox would not restart after closed

    In the middle of a browsing section where nothing unusual had happened
    and I hadn't messed with any settings, I noticed the autocomplete
    feature no longer worked, and my history file was gone. I shut down
    Firefox (1.0.4) and attempted to restart it. It appeared in the Task
    Manager, but never brought up the screen to choose a user.

    I could have rebooted, and see if that cleared things up but since I
    was rebooting anyway, I ran Norton Go Back, and rolled the computer
    back 2 hours and it seems o.k.

    But the question is has anyone else ever seen this - is it a reported
    happening/bug? Losing the history file would be inconvenient, but
    clobbering the program would be much worse.

    I should add, that prior to this ocurrence I installed Sun Java 1.5
    plugin - just in case there is some known problem there.
