Possible causes are that security software if blocking access to places.sqlite in the Firefox profile folder.

Did you try to close and restart Firefox or reboot the computer ?

Thank you for your prompt reply.

I do not have any security software that would suddenly block access and it was working fine until yesterday morning.

I have closed and restarted Firefox several times and followed your advice. I have also rebooted my computer.

I have received the message about the bookmarks and history system will not function error. I have followed the troubleshooitng suggestions but no use as the bookmarks and history are all blank. I have found a firefox data folder saved in my documents that contains a back up of my bookmarks and history but these are greyed out so I can't back up from these. Can anyone assist?

My Bookmarks Multiply in the Hundreds and Can't Be Deleted

Please continue here: [/questions/1329921]
I have followed all the instructions re how to delete bookmarks. Nothing works. Each time I try to mark all and delete - they multiply - by doubles or triples -- and then the whole Mozilla crashes. This happened to me with Chrome, and by now I have over 50,000 chrome bookmarks. I have uninstalled chrome, installed Mozilla and it is the only online platform on my laptop now. For some odd reason, several sets of my Chrome bookmarks showed up on the Mozilla. I made sure that nothing is syncing. I still can't delete all the bookmarks. Only one by one. And if I delete one, it adds itself at the bottom of the list. I'm in deep despair. It's probably a malware that my Norton does not detect.

Hello!

I have two different problems.

Bookmark toolbar disappears at every firefox restart, nevertheless I set it to 'Always show'.

The second problem is that my add-ons icons disappears at every firefox restart, leaving a blank space that I can click and that shows a small rectangle with no function. I have to go inside the add-ons settings de-activating and activating the add on to show it properly again.

Any thoughts?

I recently updated my bookmarks b/c after the latest update, most of mine disappeared. I set everything back up and it worked for a day. Then, I left my browser up for two days without closing out and when I came back to my PC, the links don't work. The favicons are now not showing either anymore. I've looked online but didn't see any instructions I felt confident to follow in order to fix. Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thanks, Alex

Hi. I'm trying to organise my bookmarks, and whilst I am able to add, move and remove bookmarks themselves, I can't do anything about folders, even duplicates. Deleting in Firefox's GUI does nothing, and if I try to use a bookmark managing extension, it doesn't work either. What's going on?

I've been digging around in my system for a corresponding .txt file or whatever to manually edit, but it seems it's all on Mozilla's servers, or the file is in some obscure format I can't easily edit. Is this something to do with Firefox Sync?

I noticed occasionally that an odd entry might come up every now and again in the address bar auto-complete, and they always had a little blue star. Turns out that's the "bookmarks" autocomplete option. Once I located one of them, I searched through my bookmarks to try to delete it, but it is not there. I actually went through and deleted all of my bookmarks in Firefox save two, and lo and behold there are still dozens, possibly hundreds, of "bookmarked" suggestions in the autocomplete bar. For instance, woot.com; I used to have it bookmarked, but since I haven't used it in months, I deleted it. Yet when I click on "bookmarks" in the address bar search, woot.com shows up among a dozen other entries which are clearly not in my bookmarks.

I checked my other browsers and cleared their bookmarks as well, although none of them had woot.com bookmarked as far as I can tell. I deleted browsing history older than 6 months and searched through both my bookmarks and history, finding no entries for this. I went to the Options menu, Privacy and Security, and Address Bar, and disabled "Bookmarks", and found that doing so DOES in fact prevent these supposed bookmarks from being suggested in the address bar when typing.

I'd like to be able to remove these old, outdated suggestions from my address bar while still leaving the bookmarked page search function working. Where is Firefox pulling these old bookmarks from? How can I delete them?
