Bookmarks now have the wrong URL

Posted

I recently did the update to 66.3. Now all my book marks are wrong, like completely incorrect.

I have 9 links to a pork tenderloin recipe on the foodnetwork.com, 2 links to a google search for the Food network, pepperplate and a few other recipes.

Not one of my shortcuts was related to food in anyway, mostly camping stuff. Also the live bookmarks that appear on new tab launch are non existent.

I have no idea where the food related bookmarks have come from.

As for that status of my computer, it is malware and virus free.

Thanks

If you use Sync then best is to disconnect Sync temporarily during troubleshooting.

You can check for problems with the places.sqlite and favicons.sqlite files in the Firefox profile folder.

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

In case errors are reported with "Verify Integrity" close and restart Firefox and retry.

If "Verify Integrity" cannot repair places.sqlite then remove all places.sqlite and favicons.sqlite files in the Firefox profile folder. Firefox will rebuild places.sqlite and restore the bookmarks from a recent JSON backup in the bookmarkbackups folder.

  • keep a backup copy of places.sqlite in case a new places.sqlite database has to be created
