After refreshing Firefox because of a different (and now solved) problem, I restored my Old Firefox Data to recover my customization settings. The problem from before remained solved as well, so don't worry about that. The only problem is that now, for whatever reason, I can't delete any bookmarks. I can still add and edit bookmarks, but I can't outright delete them. My version is 73.0.1 (64-bit).


I've gone to about:support and checked Places Database. This is what it gave me:

> Task: checkIntegrity - Unable to check favicons.sqlite integrity: Error: Error(s) encountered during statement execution: database disk image is malformed > Task: invalidateCaches - The task queue was cleared by an error in another task. > Task: checkCoherence - The task queue was cleared by an error in another task. > Task: expire - The task queue was cleared by an error in another task. > Task: originFrecencyStats - The task queue was cleared by an error in another task. > Task: vacuum - The task queue was cleared by an error in another task. > Task: stats - The task queue was cleared by an error in another task. > Task: _refreshUI - The task queue was cleared by an error in another task.


A solution that I've seen elsewhere is to delete the "places.sqlite" file after closing Firefox and letting it reset, but that hasn't worked. Again, I can add and edit bookmarks, just not delete them. It doesn't matter where I try to delete them from (within the browser), and they all still link to the right places. It's not an emergency, but I'd appreciate help with this.

I haven't been able to delete bookmarks or history for the last 6 months, or to export bookmarks - the only workaround is importing them directly to Chrome and exporting them from there into an html file. I have automated updates of Firefox (currently running 63) on a Mac. Refresh, safe mode, etc. doesn't do anything Deleting places.sqlite and bookmark backups in the profile folder solves the problem only for a second. Please fix this,other people are having similar issues.
