Are you using sync? Disable it.

[v57+] Places Maintenance is built into Firefox.

Type about:support<enter> in the address bar.

You will find Places Database near the bottom. Press the Verify Integrity button.

When done, copy and post the results here.

Does the number of bookmarks reported match the number of bookmarks you actually have ?

Table moz_bookmarks has 327 records

Unless you can find an add-on to check your bookmarks, you will have to do this manually.

If you are still using sync, the deleted bookmark will be removed from all members of the sync.

Happened again!!

Sync is turned off. I did find https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/bookmark-dupes/ that helps get rid of the excess.
