I can't delete any bookmarks. I've followed directions, but under the three dots there is no delete option. I'm using Catalina 10.5 on a Mac. Firefox works correctly and well on my MacAir.
Any help would be appreciated.

What three dots are you talking about ?
Is that the page actions menu on the location bar or about tiles on the Firefox Home page or something else ?
This issue can be caused by a problem with the places.sqlite and favicons.sqlite databases in the Firefox profile folder.
If you use Sync then best is to disconnect Sync temporarily during troubleshooting.

- use "Verify Integrity" button on the "Help -> Troubleshooting Information" (about:support) page
If errors are reported with "Verify Integrity", close and restart Firefox and retry.
If "Verify Integrity" cannot repair places.sqlite, rename/remove all places.sqlite and favicons.sqlite files in the Firefox profile folder. 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 can use the button on the "Help -> Troubleshooting Information" (about:support) page to go to the current Firefox profile folder or use the about:profiles page.
