Why is www.123.com/456 and www.123.com/456/ treated as diffrent bookmarks even though they are the same page?

Chosen solution

It's server-specific. For some servers or applications it is the same page, but doesn't have to be in general.

http://www.123.com/456/ somewhere can be resolved to http://www.123.com/456/index.html, this sign / indicates a directory, but this one http://www.123.com/456 looks like a file.

A bookmark is identified by the URL, so if you URL is exactly the same (exact copy) then the bookmark is the same. Another example: If you have older bookmarks with the http:// protocol then the website or Firefox may redirect to the https:// version and you can have both versions bookmarked, but you end up on the same website.
