Please can you try running Places Verify:

  • Go to Help -> Troubleshooting Information
  • Scroll down the page to find the "Places Database" section (it is near the bottom).
  • Click the "Verify Integrity" button, this may take a few seconds to run.

Please copy and paste the output here.

Then restart Firefox, and see if the problem still occurs or not.

If it does still occur, please can you go to the three bar menu -> Web Developer -> Browser Console, and see if any messages appear when you try to bookmark.

If they do, please copy and paste them here.
