Sync fails sync Bookmarks on one PC only.

I've recently noticed lots of error-sync logs in the %APPDATA%\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\<My Profile>\weave\logs folder. My sync is set up to handle Bookmarks and History only.

I have 4 devices, 2 PCs - both Firefox 56.0.2 32-bit and 2 Android devices (latest Firefox, not sure of version). All 4 were previously set to sync together, Bookmarks/History.

One of the PCs (Windows 7 x64) - has the logs, but I've read numerous articles online on how to fix Sync myself or correct a corrupted places.sqlite database as that's what the error log seems to be suggesting is wrong.

Running check integrity against places.sqlite gives me this:

> Task: checkIntegrity - Unable to check database integrity > Task: checkCoherence - The task queue was cleared by an error in another task. > Task: expire - The task queue was cleared by an error in another task. > Task: vacuum - The task queue was cleared by an error in another task. > Task: stats - The task queue was cleared by an error in another task. > Task: _refreshUI - The task queue was cleared by an error in another task.

I have tried to repeat the process in safe mode and with a clear (new) profile - the issue persists. I have deleted places.sqlite (after making a backup) to see if sync suddenly starts working - but the bookmark related issue simply returns.

I have signed out on all devices, changed my sync password and logged in on just the PCs (for now until the problem is resolved). I have deleted all bookmarks on the 'problem' PC, then re-imported them from Internet Explorer on the other PC, then reactivated sync - this seems to initially work but once the 'problem' PC has the bookmarks, it tries to sync them and the errors return.

The error in question appears to be this:

1527797240532 Sync.Engine.Bookmarks WARN Error while backing up bookmarks, but continuing with sync: Error: Error(s) encountered during statement execution: database disk image is malformed (resource://gre/modules/Sqlite.jsm:823:25) JS Stack trace: handleCompletion@Sqlite.jsm:823:25 1527797240534 Sync.BrowserIDManager DEBUG _ensureValidToken already has one 1527797240543 Sync.Engine.Bookmarks DEBUG Successfully wrote previousFailed.

I can supply the entire file if required or put it on pastebin.

The only real issue I'm having is that I simply want my history/bookmarks (but nothing else) shared between all my devices that use Firefox, be it quantum or 56.0.2.

I have not tried Firefox Quantum (as numerous add-ons I use are unsupported and I didn't want to simply switch without a road back). I did try Firefox 52.0.8 ESR but the first thing it did was delete my places.sqlite so I wasn't able to reproduce the problem I'm having as I don't want to lose my history data (bookmarks are stored primarily in IE for convenience and simply imported when I need them as I use 'PlainOldFavorites' extension).

This looks like a bug with firefox sync or a corrupt file, but since I've cleared places.sqlite and let FF recreate it, I'm at a loss. If you need any further information to help solve this, I'm happy to provide as much as possible.

Thanks for any suggestions you can offer :)

Firefox started crashing on start, in "Safe Mode", after uninstall and reinstall, and on a clean profile. It doesn't even provide a crash report; when it starts, it immediately displays the Crash Reporter with the following:

Unfortunately, the crash reporter is unable to submit a report for this crash.

I am working in a Program called Kofax KTA and I have looked through every pop-up/link/java setting I can find and none of them will stop the popup from automatically minimizing.

The Whole Process - - -

You log in to KTA KTA then gives a list of documents that you can see the data for along with the image. The processors have 2 screens one for the data for the document and another for the image. When you click on the document the browser opens the page with the document info and opens a popup with the image in it. This works in IE but for numerous reasons I would like the users to use Firefox.

Any help at all would be absolutely amazing as all of you are my last hope. The Vendor is not being much help Either!

Addition to original question------------------------ I can not give a link to the site as it is an internal site. I have gone through every pop up setting that I could find in about:config as well as made sure that the popup blocker is turned off. If the popup blocker is on it does not pop out the image of the document at all. But with it off it pops out the document it just automatically minimizes that document and the only way to view the pop up is to right click and then click on maximize and drag the pop up to the next screen. I realize this only takes around a second but we have around 100 people processing documents and every second counts.

Hello!

these days I noticed that firefox is using way too much RAM after 2-3 hours.

I enabled multiprocess and now I can see on the task manager that the process that handles the 20 tabs uses ~700mb and the other 1400mb!!! Firefox is lagging and I have to restart it.

And here is another problem. When I exit FF, it won't terminate, after 1-2 minutes the crash report pops up and informs me about the crashed FF.

here are the latest dumps.
