What do you mean; "after cleaning?" What did you do?

Look on your desktop. Do you see a folder called; Old Firefox?

Why did you do the Win 10 refresh?

Taking a Screen shot; Windows > Start > search box > Snip. Select Snipping Tool.

Save the picture(s) to your desktop. Now look at the Reply box below. Press the button under it that says Browse. Now select the screen shot(s) from the desktop and load them one at a time.


What I want you to do is;

Type about:support in the address bar and press enter.

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.

Look for and open the bookmarkbackups folder, and take a screen shot. Make sure to show the file names as in the picture below.

Once that is done, Now have the file manager go up twu levels to the Profiles folder. Take another screenshot showing the name and date modified.

Post both pictures here.

You can check for problems with the places.sqlite database file (bookmarks, history) in the Firefox profile folder.

If the Places Maintenance extension can't repair the places.sqlite database file then remove all places.sqlite file(s) in the Firefox profile folder to make Firefox rebuild the places.sqlite database file from the most recent JSON backup in the bookmarkbackups folder.
