Your system details shows you are using Firefox 23 Is this correct? That is very ancient.

as my original post states I have used versions all the way up to 59.0 with the same results. If can't get it solved I'll just use another browser, although I do like firefox.

Note that you can't downgrade a profile that is used by Firefox 58+. Doing that will likely cause dataloss and places.sqlite might get corrupted. You need to (re)install the current release (59.0.1) and see if you can repair places.sqlite or create a new places.sqlite.

If "Verify Integrity" on the "Help -> Troubleshooting Information" (about:support) page cannot repair places.sqlite then remove all places.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.

You can create a new profile to test if your current profile is causing the problem.

See "Creating a profile":

If the new profile works then you can transfer files from a previously used profile to the new profile, but be cautious not to copy corrupted files to avoid carrying over problems.
