Option to create new folder on bookmarks toolbar by right-clicking is missing

The title says it all. This option has been available forever and recently it has gone missing -- it is not listed in the context menu. I can still create new folders that appear on the bookmarks toolbar by going to:

Bookmarks-->"Show All Bookmarks" and then right-clicking on the "Bookmarks Toolbar" heading

The right-click option is still available there. But it is also missing when I go to Bookmarks and right-click on "Bookmarks Toolbar". The option is listed in the context menu but it is greyed out.

I have not made any changes to FF in recent memory, although I do not pay much attention to automatic updates. This is not urgent. It was just a convenient option and it has disappeared for no apparent reason.

Problems with bookmarks and history not working properly can be caused by a corrupted places.sqlite database file.

Open a new tab or window. type about:support in the address box and press enter. Or Press the Alt or F10 key to bring up the tool bar. Then Help > Troubleshooting Information.

Under the page logo on the left side you will see Application Basics. Under this find Profile Folder. To it’s right press the button Show Folder. This will open your file browser to the current Firefox profile. Now Close Firefox.

Locate the file. Then rename or delete it. Restart Firefox.

Thanks. That had some effect. The option to create a new folder is no longer greyed out in the context menu when I navigate to:

Bookmarks-->"Bookmarks Toolbar"

and right click on the latter. However, the action does not work and the option is still missing from the context menu of the bookmarks toolbar itself.
