Sometimes when I watch a long youtube video (30min+) and it freezes then I try to restart it in the middle, firefox freezes. I restart firefox, but it loses all my bookmarks and backed up bookmarks. Also, the back/forward buttons stop working. This is due to something about the places.sqlite file. (From what I can see with a quick Google search.) This has happened twice.
Starting in Firefox 3, bookmarks and browsing history are stored in the places.sqlite file, located in the Firefox profile folder. If the Places database is locked or damaged, many Firefox functions will not work and the following symptoms may occur:
* Firefox opens to a blank page instead of the home page
* Toolbar buttons such as Back/Forward are disabled
* Bookmarks and history are missing
* URL is not updated in the Location Bar as you browse
* Bookmarking a page has no effect
* Unable to delete, move, or edit certain bookmarks

Have you tried restarting to your Recovery HD by pressing/holding Command+R? If that doesn't work and if your Mac is able to use Internet Recovery, try restaring and pressing/holding Command+Option+R which will boot into Apple's servers Recovery HD.
Either of the two restarts into the Recovery HD will allow you to use Disk Utility and try a Verify/Repair of your hard drive OR reinstall your OS X.
