Is there a way to prevent bookmarks from being duplicated when accessed?

Recently, I have encountered bookmarks duplicating when selected. They populate within the same folder. Is there some way that I can have only one instance of the same bookmark within a folder? Deleting the bookmarks is only temporary, on the next browser session launch they display again. I am using Sync, which otherwise is filing bookmarks correctly for devices associated with my account.

If you have sync, and there is a problem anywhere, Shut Down Sync Immediately On All Devices to prevent the problem from spreading. Once the problem is fixed, perform the same repair on all computers/profiles before using sync again.


[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.

Hi

The troubleshooting information shows you have the iCloud Bookmarks extension. This extension has been reported to cause issues with the bookmarks.

Start Firefox in Safe Mode to check if one of the extensions ("3-bar" menu button or Tools -> Add-ons -> Extensions) or if hardware acceleration or userChrome.css is causing the problem.

  • switch to the DEFAULT theme: "3-bar" menu button or Tools -> Add-ons -> Themes
  • do NOT click the "Refresh Firefox" button on the Safe Mode start window
