When I open the bookmark menu and click on a bookmark, the computer searches for the first few characters of the last thing I entered, instead of the bookmark.

I have a lengthy list of bookmarks that I imported from IE when I switched to Firefox. Now when I hit the star symbol to bookmark a page, it goes into called "recently bookmarked" How can I import these into the main bookmark list?
Now, for the problem... I type something in a window and hit enter. then I open a new window and go to new bookmarks. When I click on the bookmark I want, the computer searches for whatever I just typed in the old window. So if, for example, I type in 500 and enter in a game, then when I click on any bookmark, I get the search result for 500, or 5, or 50. it's not consistent how many characters it takes.
If I go to the address bar and start to type the address for the bookmarked item, the drop down bar opens and if I click on the complete address in that menu, the computer goes to where I want. This is how I am getting to sites until I can get the bookmark working.
Thanks for any advice.

During an upgrade from W7 to W10 all of my programs and related files were deleted. I want to reconstitute by Mozilla bookmarks using the entries in the location bar file/cookie. Is it possible to do this in a mass move and if so how?
Bookmarks sync problems: Bookmarks keep rearranging themselves in the bookmarks toolbar, and do not sync completely on Windows and Android.

I'm using Firefox 47.0 on Fedora (64-bit GNU/Linux) with GNOME shell, and on Windows 10 (64-bit). I also have Firefox Sync on an Android tablet, but I don't do as much web browsing on my tablet, so I haven't needed to look at the bookmarks there...
On Fedora, the bookmarks in the Firefox bookmarks toolbar rearrange themselves. The bookmarks in one folder shift from the bottom to the top, and some bookmarks in the toolbar shift from left to right. I arrange my bookmarks by loose priority, so this annoying. Whenever I notice the bookmarks being out of order, I drag them back to where they were, but they always move themselves again later. This has been an ongoing issue for a couple months; I've only seriously attempted to troubleshoot the issue over the past week or so, and I'm not having any luck.
I don't think I've ever noticed the bookmarks moving themselves in the middle of a session, so I believe it's actually happening when I close or launch Firefox. However, reproducing this issue has been tricky, since the bookmarks do not *always* shuffle themselves every time I launch Firefox. Depending on how often I open/close the application, I may notice the bookmarks moving themselves once every other day, or a couple times in a single day.
This may be a separate issue, but I noticed it around the same time: On Windows 10, my bookmarks do not sync at all. There three or four bookmarks in the toolbar, but these do not get updated when I change them on my Linux machine, and none of the other bookmarks have synced to the Windows machine.
Things that I've already tried
I've tried reverting my bookmarks to a recent automatic backup (Library > Import and Backup > Restore). No change.
I've tried disabling all addons. No change.
I tried refreshing Firefox, to "reset to factory defaults". No change.
I tried deleting the file `xulstore.json` in my Firefox profile. No change.
I tried installing and running the Places Maintenance extension. I didn't entirely understand all the text output it generated while running, but I don't think it found any real errors. Anyway, no change.
I tried backing up my exports to a JSON file, then closing Firefox, then deleting the places.sqlite file, then restarting Firefox, and importing the bookmarks JSON file. No change.
Bookmarks still rearrange themselves on Linux and do not sync at all on Windows :(
