Facing problems with firefox

Last few months, I was facing different kind of issues with firefox. History navigation (back, forward) buttons won't appear. History of urls accessed won't get saved. Cannot bookmark pages, search box on the left side doesn't work. Reason looks to be corrupted database files in the mozilla profile directory. In Linux, it will be $HOME/.mozilla/firefox//.
Close all browser instances, remove the files like places.sqlite (for navigation, bookmarks not working), formhistory.sqlite, search.json, search.sqlite (if search bar is not working). Hopefully, things works fine. If still not, create new profile and start using that.
