firstly i describe abot Safe mode:

Safe Mode is a special Firefox mode that can be used to troubleshoot and fix problems. When you start Firefox in Safe Mode, it temporarily disables add-ons (extensions and themes), turns off hardware acceleration and certain other features, and ignores some customizations. when we search any website not in history generate.

i think you are using safe mode all website and you to want so no bookmarks and history.

please follow the steps for better experience firefox:

  1. Close all tab.
  2. Clear all cookies, site data and cache
  • Click the ≡ menu button top right on browser screen and select Options.
  • Select the Privacy & Security panel and go to the Cookies and Site Data section.
  • Click the Clear Data… button. The Clear Data dialog will appear. ...
  • Click Clear.

IMPORTANT: Restart firefox and computer both.

i hope you are understand and resolved you problem then mark solution.

Thank you and regards,

Refreshing Firefox {web link} is a LAST RESORT ! !

Refreshing Firefox -- easily fix most problems

If you're having problems with Firefox, refreshing it can help. The refresh feature fixes many issues by restoring Firefox to its factory default state while saving your essential information like bookmarks and open tabs. Everything else, like user settings and add-ons, are removed.
Note: Refresh saves your old profile to the desktop in a folder called Old Firefox.
