Bookmarks going crazy

Ever since an update a few versions ago, my bookmarks have gone crazy. I have tried numerous times deleting and sorting them out but next time I opne firefox, it seems to 'sync' from some crazy old version and puts back in all the old bookmarks. They are now a total mess. I've tried unsyncing all but one computer and then deleted all the ones I didn't want but again, it still happens. Any thoughts on how and why? It's become intolerable now to the point where they are such a mess I just don't bother using them, which is really annoying because I used to use bookmarks all the time to stay organised. What happened?!

If you have sync, and there is a problem anywhere, Shut Down Sync Immediately On All Devices to prevent the problem from spreading. Once the problem is fixed, perform the same repair on all computers/profiles before using sync again.

[v57+] Places Maintenance is built into Firefox.

Type about:support<enter> in the address bar.

You will find Places Database near the bottom. Press the Verify Integrity button.

When done, copy and post the results here.

You can change the password of the Firefox Sync Account to wipe all data stored on the sync server.
