Recently bookmarked list : where can I find the bookmarks before my last 10 - my 11th, 12th etc.

I have found a significant bug in Firefox bookmarks system that's occurred in one of the last updates. I am running Firefox 91.0 on a Windows 10 laptop PC and it updates automatically. In my work I have bookmarked about 43 sites in about the last month. Only 10 appear in "Recently Bookmarked". Until the last month or so, I would go to Manage Bookmarks and all my recent bookmarks (not just 10) would be displayed and I would be able to move them to different folders I have created in my bookmarks menu. When I do this now, Manage Bookmakrs shows is a much older set of unsorted bookmarks from October 2020 to May 2021, and none of the recent 43. If I go to Recently Bookmarked it shows only the 10. The other 33 seemed to have vanished. I then searched my own bookmarks menu (with about 150 folders in it) and found all the recent bookmarks were located in one particular folder. I haven't set Firefox to do this. Indeed I cannot find any bookmarks options tab to select where bookmarks are saved by default. Why has this happened? How do I get my recent bookmarks saved in Other Bookmarks like they used to be instead of what seems like a random place in my bookmarks menu? This is quite a recent problem - say the last 1-2 months, since a fairly major update I'd guess? I also noticed that if I go to the Open Applications Menu tab on the right of the screen, and click on Bookmarks, this dialogue box lists all 43 of my recent bookmarks, not just the last 10. Why does this list all recent and the Recently Bookmarked tab only lists 10?

Why does Bookmarks take several seconds to respond after I move a bookmark when Sync enabled, but not when Sync is disabled?

With FFox open and Sync enabled, moving a bookmark, either in the Bookmark sidebar or in 'Show All Bookmarks' window, to another location - for example: dragging a bookmark from "Unsorted" to another location in Bookmarks - causes a delay during which time the Bookmark list seems to freeze and bookmarks can't be moved, selected, etc. The delay lasts for several seconds, and is longer on slower/older machines. If I attempt to move a bookmark (or folder) during the delay, it will move in unexpected ways once Bookmarks unfreezes as locations within the Bookmark list have changed.

With Sync disabled, bookmarks can be moved/selected/etc. without any delay.

Systems Tested: [Note: All systems had the most current version of FFox available for them.] MacBook Pro 26 (2014) w/OSX 10.9 IBM ThinkPad T41x (2010) w/XPpro Macbook Pro 266 (2009) w/OSX 10.6 IBM ThinkPad T61x (2008) w/XPpro Mac Mini (2008) w/OSX 10.6 Mac Mini (2007) w/OSX 10.5 Macbook Pro 233 (2007) w/Ubuntu v14 ASUS P1AH (2006) w/Ubuntu 12

My main computer is the Macbook Pro 266, and I noticed this behavior: FFox v36 bookmark delay with Sync enabled is about the same as v35, v35 was worse (longer delay) than v34, v34 was better (less delay) than v33, v33 was better than v32, V32 was much worse than v31, v31 was much worse (Sync unusueable) than v30, v30 was much worse (Sync unusueable) than v29, v29 delay made Sync unusueable.
