Hi everybody, I'm running Firefox 77.0 on my 2014 rMBP with OSX 10.11.6. A few hours ago my OS crashed and I reset my computer. Once I did this, I opened everything back as it was pre-crash and all my Firefox tabs and absolutely everything else loaded correctly except for my history.

Every time I type a word, no previously visited URLs will load up in my URL field, I checked my History and it seems to have deleted 99% of every site I've visited. The recently closed tabs and windows are still there, and I can reload them if I press cmd+shift+t, however the rest of my actual history seems to be gone. I've reset (normally) my computer a couple more times, repaired disk permissions and whatnot and for some reason it won't even save whatever other sites I've now visited since it was wiped. Am I screwed here?

When walking through the FF troubleshooting page on missing bookmarks I got to the Library and Restore / Backup Bookmarks and then got the error Unable to Process the Backup File.

Earlier I had tried the Profile change as suggested to "place.sqlite.old and that didn't work.

I did find these files (see screenshot) but I don't know how to use them. Thanks for any help. (I knew I shouldn't have updated!!)

My Firefox was going slow and asked me if I wanted to speed it up. I said yes and Ive got Quantum and NO bookmarks. Ive looked in the profile and I dont have a duplicate and looked in backup and there are no bookmarks. If I go back to the original Firefox will this give me back my bookmarks and if so, how can I go back. I tried a system restore for a few days ago but it hasnt taken me away from Quantum (which may have been the version Ive been on for a while but I dont know when)!!! Please can someone help.

Firefox now holds a lock for places.db during the whole time it is open

Since the last couple of days, I see that Firefox holds a lock for places.db for the whole time while Firefox is open. The problem manifests itself when I use alfred workflow to do a search for a firefox bookmark by a keyword. I see that the workflow written in Python crashes with

`sqlite3.OperationalError: database is locked`

When I close Firefox, the script is working fine. When I open it again - the script is not operational again. Tried safe mode - the same result.

This was working fine for years and the symptom points that it was changed recently and now Firefox holds a lock during the whole time it is open. I guess previously the database lock was acquired per bookmark write transaction.

FF 63.0 macOS

Is it a known issue? Why was this change made?

Thanks!

Seems to have cropped up around the time of the latest update but I'm now unable to create or delete bookmarks.

I've gone through the processes offered in the 'help' section (refreshed - made sure places.sqlite wasn't marked 'read only, deleted xulstore.json, double checked add-ons) and nothing's working.

Short of hitting my computer with my shoe it would be MOST appreciated if one of your smart people throw me a bone on this one.

Yesterday 29-10-2018 after startup all FF bookmarks were gone, I checked the backup's folder, there was only one profile and the backup's folder did not contain backup's. So I started from scratch yesterday, but today those bookmarks were deleted again. The only bookmarks that show up are the standard ones. This time the restore function showed the backup from yesterday, but after importing that it appeared to be empty.
