I can click on "bookmark this page" and it appears to work but it doesn't show up. I followed the steps (1 & 2) here: http://mzl.la/1xKrDRg to no avail. I also noticed that i can't get autofill to work in the url bar.

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.

Hi NorthernLady, it looks like there is an issue in your bookmarks and history storage.

Firstly, please check you have no other applications that are likely to be trying to access those files (e.g. profile cleaners).

If you don't, please can you try the steps detailed in this article:

https://support.mozilla.org/kb/fix-bookmarks-and-history-will-not-be-functional

That should hopefully get it working again for you.

Please let us know if this works.
