How can I get rid of these old undeletable bookmarks?

Since the new update my bookmarks were replaced by old bookmarks that I had deleted months ago and now I can't delete them. I can add bookmarks just fine but I can't delete the new ones either. I have tried right clicking bookmarks and hitting the delete icon but that doesn't work, I have also tried highlighting the bookmarks in the bookmark library and pressing the delete and backspace keys but that does not work.

You can check for problems with the places.sqlite database (bookmarks and history) in the Firefox profile folder.

  • use "Verify Integrity" on the "Help -> Troubleshooting Information" (about:support) page

If "Verify Integrity" on the "Help -> Troubleshooting Information" (about:support) page cannot repair places.sqlite then remove all places.sqlite files Firefox profile folder. Firefox will rebuild places.sqlite and restore the bookmarks from the most recent JSON backup in the bookmarkbackups folder.

You can use the button on the "Help -> Troubleshooting Information" (about:support) page to go to the current Firefox profile folder or use the about:profiles page.
