Mozilla Firefox Address Bar History Not Working places.sqlite corruption solution database repair

Here is the only solution I found that works in Firefox:

*Note you could basically just copy all of the commands in bold (the rest just shows the output)

 

Install sqlite3

sqlite3 places.sqlite

sqlite> .clone places.sqlite-fixed
moz_places... done
moz_historyvisits... done
moz_inputhistory... done
moz_bookmarks... done
moz_keywords... done
sqlite_sequence... Error: object name reserved for internal use: sqlite_sequence
SQL: [CREATE TABLE sqlite_sequence(name,seq)]
done
moz_anno_attributes... done
moz_annos... done
moz_items_annos... done
sqlite_stat1... Error: object name reserved for internal use: sqlite_stat1
SQL: [CREATE TABLE sqlite_stat1(tbl,idx,stat)]
Error 1: no such table: sqlite_stat1 on [SELECT * FROM "sqlite_stat1"]
done
moz_hosts... done
moz_bookmarks_deleted... done
sqlite_autoindex_moz_inputhistory_1... done
sqlite_autoindex_moz_keywords_1... done
sqlite_autoindex_moz_anno_attributes_1... done
sqlite_autoindex_moz_hosts_1... done
sqlite_autoindex_moz_bookmarks_deleted_1... done
moz_places_hostindex... done
moz_places_visitcount... done
moz_places_frecencyindex... done
moz_places_lastvisitdateindex... done
moz_historyvisits_placedateindex... done
moz_historyvisits_fromindex... done
moz_historyvisits_dateindex... done
moz_bookmarks_itemindex... done
moz_bookmarks_parentindex... done
moz_bookmarks_itemlastmodifiedindex... done
moz_places_url_hashindex... done
moz_places_guid_uniqueindex... done
moz_bookmarks_guid_uniqueindex... done
moz_annos_placeattributeindex... done
moz_items_annos_itemattributeindex... done
moz_keywords_placepostdata_uniqueindex... done
moz_bookmarks_dateaddedindex... done

PRAGMA user_version;

sqlite> PRAGMA user_version;
41
sqlite> .exit

*Note the output "41" or whatever number you will need to use this later *below*

#Note again in the command "PRAGMA user_version = 41" (substitute 41 with whatever version you got above).

sqlite3 places.sqlite-fixed

PRAGMA integrity_check;

PRAGMA user_version = 41;

PRAGMA journal_mode = truncate;

PRAGMA page_size = 32768;

VACUUM;

PRAGMA journal_mode = wal;


SQLite version 3.11.0 2016-02-15 17:29:24
Enter ".help" for usage hints.
sqlite> PRAGMA integrity_check;
ok
sqlite> PRAGMA user_version = 41;
sqlite> PRAGMA journal_mode = truncate;
truncate
sqlite> PRAGMA page_size = 32768;
sqlite> VACUUM;
sqlite> PRAGMA journal_mode = wal;
wal
sqlite> .exit

 

Now restore the "places.sqlite-fixed" to places.sqlite and reopen Firefox

After doing this my address bar history worked fine and perfectly!  No need to start with a fresh database and lose valuable history and shortcuts to key sites you visit!
