I'm sorry to hear about this. If you haven't already, I always suggest first doing a normal shutdown and restart of Windows to make sure this isn't simply an issue of a locked file.

The usual approach to a malformed database file is to remove it and let Firefox start from scratch. Your history will be lost, but Firefox will attempt to restore your last automatic bookmark backup. Sync is a factor here, since I don't know how Sync will merge the restored bookmarks and what is in your account. You might want to wait for a volunteer more familiar with Sync to comment on that.

lol I can't believe people try to steal email address that way but I guess it works with some. Anyway let's focus on what's important here. Thank you for your time and support. I rebuilded my profile and so far everything seems to be fine. I will try to access my profile from my linux partition to see how that goes too.
