It looks that there once was a problem with places.sqlite and that Firefox has renamed the file to places.sqlite.corrupt and created a new places.sqlite database that you currently use. I also see a favicons.sqlite.corrupt file that stores favicon data used by places.sqlite, both places.sqlite and favicons.sqlite are from 10/8/2019.

Do you remember from what Firefox version you updated around that time, as that is the most likely cause of the files getting corrupted?

There are no backups for the history like there is for the bookmarks in the backups in the bookmarkbackups folder.

See this article about how to check the places.sqlite.corrupt file and possibly repair it.

I don't actually remember the version but it's the latest version. My Firefox is on auto update. So it always automatically update it self.
