corrupt bookmarks menu
For my copy of Firefox, the bookmarks menu repeats itself as sub-folders ad infinitum: "Show All Bookmarks>All Bookmarks/Bookmarks Menu... /All Bookmarks/Bookmarks Menu... /All Bookmarks/Bookmarks Menu...." Each sub-level contains all the bookmarks of its parent level. Deletion of a "Bookmarks Menu" sub-folder results in deletion of corresponding parent folders and their contents.

[v57+] Places Maintenance is built into Firefox.
Type about:support<enter> in the address bar.
You will find Places Database near the bottom. Press the Verify Integrity button.
When done, copy and post the results here.
In case errors are reported with "Verify Integrity" close and restart Firefox and retry.
If "Verify Integrity" cannot repair places.sqlite, rename/remove all places.sqlite and favicons.sqlite files in the Firefox profile folder. Firefox will rebuild places.sqlite and restore the bookmarks from a recent JSON backup in the bookmarkbackups folder.
- keep a backup copy of places.sqlite in case a new places.sqlite database has to be created
You can use the button on the "Help -> Troubleshooting Information" (about:support) page to go to the current Firefox profile folder or use the about:profiles page.

I hope I have followed your directions correctly, and I look forward to your advice.
Looks good. Is the problem still there?
