Yep. I've seen that kind of before.
Does it happen with all the footnotes, or just a few of them?

First of all, there should be a message about it in the
Console or .log file. This should help get an idea of
what is going wrong.

Which version of  hyperref.sty  do you have?

What  \documentclass  are you using?
Does it have any coding related to footnotes?

If so, then it may not be interacting properly with the
coding in  hyperref.sty , in which case you had better
send me an example (cut down as much as possible) and
I'll try to devise a fix that is simple to use.
