Recently I used CCleaner to stop any inhibition of Firefox. As a result I have reached the goal but caught another problems as not working my top sites and history as well as some sites like twitter.com or yahoo.com can't open directly but only through google.com.

Any idea how to resolve the issue I have encountered?

We do not recommend using outside programs to 'clean' Firefox as it can clean itself. Also, such programs can corrupt or remove the wrong data,


If you are using any sync, sign out of them first.

[v57+] Places Maintenance is built into Firefox.

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.

If you use Sync then best is to disconnect Sync temporarily during troubleshooting.

If errors are reported with "Verify Integrity", close and restart Firefox and retry.

If "Verify Integrity" cannot repair places.sqlite, rename/remove all places.sqlite and favicons.sqlite files in the Firefox profile folder. Firefox will rebuild places.sqlite and restore the bookmarks from a recent JSON backup in the bookmarkbackups folder.

  • keep a backup copy of places.sqlite in case a new places.sqlite database has to be created
