This is my second query. Mozilla sent me a 'fix' problem email and I tried all the suggestions, but still... the freeze, stall problem with bookmarks persists.

Now after doing all that's been suggested Firefox Bookmarks is stalling... MORE often:

I got to 'Show all Bookmarks' and once it gives me that page, I click on an item...

STALL FOR 5-10 seconds

I click and select a bookmarked address

STALL AGAIN for 5-8 seconds

I delete a book mark

STALL AGAIN... 5 seconds

On and On and On...

Does this problem have to do with Synching Firefox with 2-3 other computers? Should I just disable synching?

You should be cautious with deleting the bookmarkbackups folder as well as that will remove all JSON backups and you lose all the bookmarks and you won't be able to rebuild the places.sqlite database. You normally only need to remove the places.sqlite to recover from issues with this file.

You should disconnect from Sync temporarily before deleting the places.sqlite file.
