My bookmark directories have doubled - meaning I have 2 of each directory. Also, within bookmark directories I am seeing the saved webpages duplicating or, in some cases, tripling. This is making it difficult to use Firefox.

After saving two some new bookmark, I found out on my other 2 pcs (synchronized with a third one) that the bookmarks I've added were just multiplied X times, where X stands for hundreds..... How can I restore my bookmark menu? What is the problem? Is it possible to delete more bookmarks at a time?

My bookmarks duplicate when I try to rearrange them

I've never had an issue rearranging bookmarks before, but starting last night when I try to move a previously created bookmark from "Other Bookmarks" into a Folder it fails to relocate. Instead, it creates an entirely new bookmark in the new folder and leaves the original bookmark in the original location. This happens when I drag the bookmark, cut/paste the bookmark and even in Firefox's SafeMode. I've tried refreshing Firefox, but that didn't help either. As someone who thrives on organization this is very troubling and makes using bookmarks in Firefox impossible. Any help would be much appreciated.

I've used the Firefox Bookmark Dupes several times & 100+ bookmarks keep returning, both in the drop down 'bookmarks' menu & in folders, usually in folders that have had recent activity. Hours have been spent trying to fix this. Also tried using 'show all 'bookmarks' and deleting individual bookmarks that way to no avail!

Bookmarks Duplicated & Not In Folders Anymore!

All this talk of syncing & duplicate bookmarks doesn't explain what happened during the last update of Firefox Quantum (64-bit). I don't have multiple devices, so where are all these bookmarks & empty duplicate folders coming from. There are a bunch of bookmarks outside of the folders they were in AND inside the folders they're in. What the heck happened? Can I go back to the previous version of Firefox? This is a mess, and I really don't have time to read through a gazillion links trying to rectify this issue. I've restored my bookmarks to before this latest update occurred, and it seems to be making things worse. Mozilla needs to post BIG FAT FLAGS when they make a major change to this browser. I would've never let this update install, had I known what it was going to do.

Because I embed folders inside of folders, all the loose ones used to belong inside of folders, and some didn't. Now, I have tons of them where I can't find which folder they were in, because they were embedded. This is really bad, whatever Firefox has done.

Again, 1 computer, 1 device ... WHAT IS IT DOING or syncing to? I'm not using some Add-on to fix this, because an Add-on didn't break it; the last update did! I do have Add-ons, but unless this version is incompatible with them, I have no clue. None of them are bookmark Add-ons anyway. I shan't Share Data this time, because I really don't want people poking around & pointing fingers at my Add-ons. I'd rather be shown how to go back to the previous version, than keep messing around with incompatibilities when Firefox keeps changing. Developers can't keep up with all these updates that come through every other month (it seems). Please and thank you.

This morning I opened my Firefox and used my bookmarks. Closed Firefox. Reopened Firefox and all my bookmarks are gone.

Luckily I make regular html backups and could restore them.

It is just that I would like to know what happened here.

I must say that: I use Firefox on an Android tablet where I never change the bookmarks, and on my laptop where I change them very often. Since a month I got the warning that Firefox was not syncing anymore. I was asked to reconnect to sync. This was on my laptop. Being afraid that reconnecting to sync would install the bookmarks from the Tablet on the laptop I disconnected from sync. But this was 2 days ago!!! Can this have caused the bookmarks suddenly disappearing?

When doing a search in the Library section sometimes as many as three of the same saved link/page show up. They all open to the same page as named as they should. But I only need one. It's not a space issue of course. I thought maybe if I forgot about saving the page before a popup might show up and read something like " Bookmark already in Library . Do you want to overwrite?"

started using mozilla / firefox ages ago. over time my list has gotten so huge i need to manage it. i am sure i have duplicates and the recent update i did in November imported backups and imported bookmarks from other browsers. some i need and some i do not. it would take weeks for me to go through and move the ones i want and deleted invalid ones. i can only spend maybe 10-20 minutes a day trying to look at the bookmark list. it is so massive that it like trying to read a thousand page novel one page a day. i need to trim it down and remove duplicated marks and manage folders.
