Again, the stored FIREFOX bookmarks are correct but when clickd on they go to other stored bookmarks.

The problem has existed through multiple releases of FIREFOX. The cause is not malware, and it certainly isn't Windows 8 because I am running Windows 7. I have been asking this question for months without a response.

Re: Again, the stored FIREFOX bookmarks are correct but when clickd on they go to other stored bookmarks.

could you go to firefox > help > troubleshooting information, copy the contents of that page and paste them here into a reply on the forum? this might give us a clue what is going on...

Problems with bookmarks and history not working properly can be caused by a corrupted places.sqlite database file.

You can check for problems with the places.sqlite database file in the Firefox profile folder.

When I click on the copy TEXT or RAW DATA buttons I don't get a paste option.

after you've copied the information on the about:support page, you can right-click in the reply text box & select paste (or click into the textfield and press ctrl+v)...

Apparently my problem is unique because it is not any of the problems solved with the sqlite database. Each time I bookmark a page it is saved and saved correctly. If I copy and paste it in FIREFOX it goes to the correct page. But if I double click the bookmark FIREFOX goes to a different page, but only one that is stored in my FIREFOX BOOKMARKS.

Re: Again, the stored FIREFOX bookmarks are correct but when clickd on they go to other stored bookmarks.

ok, nothing very out of the ordinary there - can you try to replicate this behaviour when you launch firefox in safe mode once? if not, maybe an addon is interfering...

Can you tell me how to get to the FIREFOX Profile Folder? Thanks.
