Firefox is freezing when searching in bookmarks; typing the first letter of a search gives a red x (i have lot's of bookmarks)
Firefox is freezing when searching in bookmarks.
When I typ the first letter of a search term a red letter x shows up. Then Firefox freezes and I have to shut the browser.
The request to tell Firefox is slightly visible behind the request of Microsoft to report to them - so I don't have a crash ID !
Next to that inability I also no longer can search in tags anymore!
As I have a lot of bookmarks - is there a limit to bookmarks and might that be the problem ?

You can try this:
Copy and Paste this code in the Code field in the "Tools > Error Console" and click the "Evaluate" button to cleanup and compress the places.sqlite database file.
cor-el, thanks for replying !
In the Error Console I found the error-warning "resource://gre/modules/PlacesDBUtils.jsm". I copied it and placed that code. After clicking the "Evaluation"button nothing happened.
Actually I have lot's of errors like: - Warning: Error in parsing value for 'background-image'. Declaration dropped. Source File: https://support.mozilla.com/en-US/questions/761942 Line: 0
In the Error Console there are errors for 'border-radius', 'background', 'zoom', etc.
Don't know how to handle those errors and I still cannot search in bookmarks and Firefox still is freezing while trying to search.
Maybe you have other suggestions ?
