Why is it that when I add a new bookmark, it replaces one of my old ones?

I have a good number of bookmarks in Firefox. I want to add more, but each time I add a new one, it replaces the last bookmark I added with the new one. That old bookmark is then gone from my list.

Also, normally when I hit "bookmark this page," the box that pops up will automatically be populated with the page title I am trying to bookmark...however, now when I try to add a new bookmark, the box is populated with information from the last bookmark I added.

I have version 3.0.7 for Mac. I really don't want to lose my old bookmarks, and I have a lot of windows I keep open now because there are pages I want to bookmark, but can't.

Any advice is appreciated.

This can be caused by a problem with the file places.sqlite that stores the bookmarks and the history.
