First jscher2000, & Cor-el, I Absolutely Thank both of You for the Time/Effort that you have put in to helping me, &,..... If I have appeared to be "Ride/Crude &/or Socially Un-acceptable" in my statements, I Absolutely Apologize. And, even though My "Bookmarks Situation" is still not "Normal" & it is time consuming to use,..... It is far better than what it was initially, & I Thank both of You, for having gotten it to that point.
Having gotten caught up a little with my work, & still not having the issue of my "Bookmarks" not taken care of,I went back to the long thread of "Bookmarks & Other Bookmarks " only to find this problem "Archived", without it having been Solved.
This issue has been ongoing since March 4, 2021, where my "Bookmarks" were missing, to where my "Other Bookmarks" are getting placed within My Main Bookmarks.

"I have no explanation for inability to drag and drop as long as your database is healthy."
Sir,... What Data/ Tests, would show whether my Database is Healthy or not? After all that has been done to get my Bookmarks to the point where they are now, did any of the previous procedures indicate anything about the "Health of My Database"?

"If you use Sync then best is to disconnect Sync temporarily during troubleshooting.
This can be caused by a problem with the places.sqlite and favicons.sqlite databases in the Firefox profile folder.
use "Verify Integrity" button on the "Help -> More Troubleshooting Information" (about:support) page
If errors are reported with "Verify Integrity", close and restart Firefox or reboot and retry.
If "Verify Integrity" cannot repair places.sqlite, rename/remove all places.sqlite and favicons.sqlite files in the Firefox profile folder with Firefox closed.
Firefox will rebuild places.sqlite and restore the bookmarks from a recent JSON backup in the bookmarkbackups folder.
keep a backup copy of places.sqlite in case a new places.sqlite database has to be created
You lose the history when a new places.sqlite is created.
You can use the button on the "Help -> More Troubleshooting Information" (about:support) page to go to the current Firefox profile folder or use the about:profiles page.
Help -> More Troubleshooting Information -> Profile Folder/Directory:
Windows: Open Folder; Linux: Open Directory; Mac: Show in Finder
My last post was on June 14,2021 where I posted data, that appeared to suggest that my "places.sqlite database sane" (meaning "Normal"?) And that my "The database is coherent"., ... (Which in My thinking means that it should be understandable, possibly "Healthy"?)
But Gentlemen,..... I'm not "well versed" in the usage of a Computer/ Browser etc., & If "My Livelihood" was dependent upon repairing/diagnosing Soft Ware Applications, .... I'd Starve to Death.
But, if an application were related to my work,.... I'd have somewhat firmer ground to stand upon, which is why I posted June 14, 21:
"If this were a ECU for a Walk-n Refrigeration unit, I'd know what these "Codes" above meant, but here, I don't have a clue whether the data is pointing out a problem, or stating that what is causing the "Bookmarks" problem, is not to be found in the above Data."
With that said,.... Cor-el, If I,...... " rename/remove all places.sqlite and favicons.sqlite files in the Firefox profile folder with Firefox closed.
Firefox will rebuild places.sqlite and restore the bookmarks from a recent JSON backup in the bookmarkbackups folder."
Will the rebuilt & restored bookmarks from that "recent JSON backup" also be corrupt, since they are a copy of what is being used?
"You lose the history when a new places.sqlite is created."
But not "Bookmarks"?
I'm curious,...... Should I do a "Re-set/Refresh" Again?
And, since "The health" of my browser may be an issue, should I un-install, & re-install Firefox?
Also,.... Firefox, & many other applications have been slow to "Load" &/or "Operate" at times, & despite having Software such as "Privacy Badger", "NoScript", "Ghostery", & "Malwarebytes" all operating, as well as "Windows Security", & "Ccleaner"... I'm thinking that somehow, that something, perhaps "Bit Coin Mining", has latched on to my PC.
What do Ya'll recommend?
