Problems with bookmarks after update to version 16

My bookmarks used to appear in the bookmark drop-down menu but now are only available in the bookmark sidebar. I have tried the reset to default option. I have tried deleting the places.sqlite file and the localstore.rdf file from the profile, but no change. Should I also try deleting the places.sqlite-shm and places.sqlite-wal files??

How can I get my bookmarks back to where they were?

Also, I am unable to export bookmarks to html -- goes through the motions, but no file is created.

Isisombululo esikhethiwe

My problems seem to have disappeared since uninstalling version 16 and re-installing version 15.0.1, which the help->about now tells me it's up to date!!!

I guess v 16 isn't ready for prime time.

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.

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

Did you read past the title? I was hoping for more than a boiler-plate response.
