Cannot fold/unfold branches in bookmarks tree on 'Bookmarks->Bookmark This Page'

I'm experiencing this problem for about a week. The tree stays frozen in the state which it has earlier. If I click on a fold/unfold triangle the triangle is rotated but the tree doesn't get folded or unfolded.

With old Firefox 16.0.2 the problem is the same.

I'm a Thunderbird add-ons developer myself, so if you need some additional details I can collect them. I've looked at Error Console and haven't seen any messages while poking around the bug.

Problems with bookmarks and history not working properly can be caused by a corrupted places.sqlite database file.

You can check for problems with the places.sqlite database file in the Firefox Profile Folder.

You can also check for problems with the localstore.rdf file.

Thank you very much! Removing of localstore.rdf doesn't help. Places Management add-on doesn't helps. Removing of places.sqlite helps. So, I removed places.sqlite. I've lost my history, but I use it quite rarely and it always can be accessed with sqlitemanager.

UPDATE: Well, I thought that I solved the issue. But I didn't. Finally I've reinstalled the Firefox. Although I copied all sqlite files and prefs.js, I've lost all installed addons. But the bookmarks works now for sure.
