Funky/Corrupted bookmarks? - Involves Linux and Firefox Sync

Hi folks. Currently I am using Firefox Sync to sync my bookmarks between an andriod, Linux laptop and Linux desktop. At times I have difficulty relocating a bookmark to a given position on my desktop or laptop, but my biggest problem centers around bookmarks that I relocate in a different place in the "Unsorted" folder or to a different folder not always appearing in the new position on the other machines. In an attempt to troubleshoot this further I went to my Linux desktop, signed out of FF sync, backed up my 2000+ bookmarks, exported my bookmarks (both to local directories), exited firefox and then renamed the places.sqlite. When I then attempted to restore from json file and when I input bookmarks from the html file I saw all my bookmark directories recreated but all my files were dumped into the "Unsorted Bookmarks" folder. I finally had to put the places.sqlite file back in place in order to continue working, however, my original problems remains. When I attempt to verify the places database I get the following, but clearly something is out of whack. How best can I create a cleaner bookmarks database?

So, any ideas how I can move forward and get my bookmarks working between between all my machines?

Thanks very much for your time, John C

Until recently, when I press Ctrl+B, I get a bar at the top of the browser containing a link "Manage bookmarks". I can click the link to bring up the "Manage bookmarks" window.

That's not as convenient as the older behaviour wherein the "Manage bookmarks" window appears immediately when I press Ctrl+B, and it also consumes about half a centimetre of space across the entire width of the browser window (which is a lot with Firefox window maximized). I find also that the need to move the pointer to the link and click it interrupts flow, which is why people use hot keys like Ctrl+B. However, at least the "Manage bookmarks" link worked.

As of approximately a few days ago, clicking the "Manage bookmarks" link does nothing. It does not bring up the "Manage bookmarks" window. Neither does Shift-clicking the link, Ctrl-clicking, or Shift+Ctrl-clicking. I think it must be something about the most recent update. I'm on version 109.0.1 (64-bit) and I'm on Windows 10.

Does anyone else see this? How can I get the "Manage bookmarks" link to work?

So this crazy new update has broken my Firefox in these ways:

1. All my bookmarks on my bookmarks bar have been deleted. 2. I can't drag any new links to the bookmarks bar 3. Overflow menu for apps is empty and will only let me drag Firefox defaults to it such as settings. Dragging apps to it is impossible. It "is" possible to pin items by using the Chrome puzzle piece..

Firefox: 109.0 OS: Windows 10 Pro

Using troubleshooting mode has no effect.
