2nd "Other" folder in bookmarks that is linked to the original

I have a 2nd identical "other" folder located in the "other" folder. They are somehow linked to each other, so that if I try to delete a bookmark under the 2nd duplicate one, it deletes it from both. If I select something in one folder and then click on the second one that selected item shows under the second as well. I don't want two folders but cannot delete or change anything or it deletes the original as well. Other than restoring an old bookmark backup to replace this defective one does anyone have any solution to fixing this? Thanks Cheers

The real Other Bookmarks folder would be located directly under "Al Bookmarks" with a special icon. Can you remove the ghost version of this folder via the right-click context menu or is Delete Folder grayed?

If you use Sync, 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 the "Places Database" -> "Verify Integrity" button in "Help -> More Troubleshooting Information" (about:support)

If errors are reported with "Verify Integrity", close and restart Firefox or reboot the computer and retry.

If you need to recover: Firefox keeps a full undo stack of changes made to bookmarks for the current session. If you haven't closed Firefox, you can open the Bookmarks Manager (Library; Ctl+Shift+O) and use "Organize -> Undo" (Ctrl+Z) until you see deleted bookmarks reappear.
