History, bookmarks stop working after using Firefox for a while
I'm running into a frequent problem. After using firefox for an amount of time, my bookmarks and history become "frozen".
The bookmark become kind of "read-only", I can't add, remove, or move any bookmarks at all.
As for history, pressing Ctrl-H still shows the links I visited, but all sites I visited after firefox "freezing" disappears once I restart the browser. All visited links don't change color to deep blue either.
As a result, I need to restart Firefox frequently. What is going on?

I just updated upon restarting firefox. I will keep an eye out for further occurrences.
Type about:support<enter> in the address bar.
Under the page logo on the left side, you will see Application Basics. Under this find Profile Folder. To its right press the button Show Folder. This will open your file browser to the current Firefox profile. Now Close Firefox.
Locate the places.sqlite file. Then rename it by adding .old to it. Restart Firefox.
A new places.sqlite file will be created using a bookmarks backup.
Done, anything else?
Is the problem still there?
I'm not certain, the problem only kicks in after using Firefox for a while. I'll have to wait and see
What security software do you have?
Boot the computer in Windows Safe mode with network support to see if that has effect in case security software is causing problems.
