I installed Firefox to a new c: drive and imported bookmarks from the previous drive, but the toolbar icons are larger than before and not as many show up across the top of the screen. I could not find any way to correct this in the settings or online.

I have a large bookmarks with many folders after many years of Firefox. About 4 months ago I noticed I could no longer add/delete or modify any amazon.com bookmarks in my amazon folder. All other websites seem to work ok. Click on the star, doesn't open anything. Click add to bookmarks, nothing happens. Right click on amazon bookmark in folder, properties, doesn't list the properties properly and doesn't allow me to delete. I have just checked my mozilla firefox profile folder and there is 3 x places.sqlite files - places.sqlite, places.sqlite-shm, places.sqlite-wal. I haven't deleted or modified them because I would like to identify the problem. I have tried clearing data, refresh firefox and restart with add ons disabled but nothing. I am running Kaspersky Total Security but have disabled anti virus and firewall, no change. Don't know if it started when pocket was introduced. Don't want to leave firefox, have had it for many years but this problem with bookmarks is frustrating. Thanks in advance for any assistance.

This happens while browsing different pages and doesn't seem related to a single web page, around 10 tabs open none using much resources. Computer CPU usage and ram usage are at under 50%.

I only have a single extension, lastpass, which i disabled and still get the same results.

Firefox will sometimes load up as blank as well. Hitting home key or refresh doesn't help. It's been frustrating, when clicking on a link or hitting + tab it will open but be blank and not usable. What I mean is if I copy and paste link address into that blank tab it is unresponsive. When it opens a blank link it will show the full and correct link in header but no load.

I did read at least one other person had a similar problem. A reset worked for them. I first tried going into safe mode to see if any extensions etc might be the culprit. Problem happened in safe mode. So then I did try the reset. Unfortunately, the problem still happens. One other idea given was to turn off hardware acceleration, which I've done. Didn't help though.

The problem is only with firefox. Chrome works and handles links/tabs fine. Even so I ran antivirus and antimalware softwares just in case. Dead end.

I'm using 64 bit version of Windows 7.

Upgraded to 1809, FF stopped working. Win 10 Home, upgraded to Win 10 Pro, still no. Uninstalled, reinstalled several times, it won't start, won't open.

This was my default browser. I had Win 10 Home 64 bit, updated to 1809 and Firefox stopped working completely. I uninstalled it but couldn't kill the process in Task Manager. Rebooted, reinstalled, refreshed. Nothing works, it won't open, sometimes it says it IS open (even when uninstalled - while running CCleaner to get rid of detritus) but won't allow force close.

So I upgraded to Win 10 Pro (I have Firefox on my backup Win 10 Pro machine with 1809, works fine there), and tried again. Still nothing, it installed but won't open. I refreshed it, still nothing. It did open once briefly after the refresh, all was gone - I can sync back my extensions and book marks, I guess. If I could get the browser open at all. But I can't do that. This is the only browser that isn't working. I am at a loss as to how to get past this. I've changed my default to another browser for now until I can get this fixed. But I've tried everything I know and can't even get it to open. So I am open to suggestions. I'd like to get it put back to where it was, eventually. What next? And, thank you for your help. :^) gene

Starting this morning, I have been getting the "The bookmarks and history system will not be functional" error message, and I( have done every suggestion on the Help page and nothing works; not rebooting, not renaming or deleting files in the profile, not refreshing Firefox. My bookmarks are gone, I can't make new ones, and it doesn't keep track of my history either so I have to manually type in the full URLS for EVERY site I want/need to go to. I have a dentist appointment I need to go to so take your time in answering.

I have a lot of bookmarks sorted in folders. firefox keeps randomly loosing either whole folders or just individual bookmarks. This caused me to migrate to chrome for about a year, but I really want to support Mozilla, so I'm back again.

I really cant stand this bookmark issue though.

I've been noticing that Firefox becomes very laggy and unresponsive on my high-end desktop, and Windows task manager reveals that a FF thread often takes 3-5 GB of memory that increases over time. This does not show up in FF's task manager.

I haven't been able to identify the cause of this, and it's weird that 3-5 GB of memory will slow things down that much when I still have ~8 GB unused memory.

This is on a pretty fresh Win10 install.

I have tried to attach my about:memory report below, but in case it doesn't go through, I also hosted it on GDrive. https://drive.google.com/open?id=1qyGQShX78PculdEmacm8hO9jqn4E1GWh

Can anyone please help me resolve this issue?
