It only affects the bookmarks menu, not the bookmarks button or toolbar.

You can fix it for now with these steps:

  1. Type about:config in the location bar
  2. Click "I'll be careful, I promise"
  3. Type image.mem.decodeondraw in the filter bar
  4. Double click the entry that comes up to change it's value to False.
