Bookmarks haven't worked in over a month

My bookmarks have not worked in over a month I'm not sure if it was after upgrading or if something else caused this. I'm currently running ver. 15.0.1 on my desktop & laptop & am only having the problem on my desktop. I've tried deleting & re-importing my bookmarks but they still don't work. They display fine but do nothing when I click on them.

You can check for problems with the places.sqlite database file in the Firefox Profile Folder.

You can try to check and repair the places database with this extension:

Also:

The Reset Firefox feature can fix many issues by restoring Firefox to its factory default state while saving your essential information. Note: This will cause you to lose any Extensions, Open websites, and some Preferences.

To Reset Firefox do the following:

  1. Go to Firefox > Help > Troubleshooting Information.
  2. Click the "Reset Firefox" button.
  3. Firefox will close and reset. After Firefox is done, it will show a window with the information that is imported. Click Finish.
  4. Firefox will open with all factory defaults applied.


Further information can be found in the Refresh Firefox - reset add-ons and settings article.
