I have been trying to solve this for days now.
My bookmarks keep duplicating out of control. I mean they will go from 500 to 10,000+ in a matter of minutes.
I did have sync running, but I have shut it down in case that was the problem, and it's not restarted now.
This problem is happening on 3 of my computers that were sync'ed. None of them have sync running now, yet they each still have the problem.
1) I deleted all duplicates by hand and then exported/backed up that version without duplicates (well call that the clean copy).
2) I have tried verifying the integrity of the bookmarks database through the troubleshooter. Each time the problem starts happening again after a few minutes. - I have done this on the current bookmarks - I have done this after I have deleted all bookmarks right before restoring, then again right after I restored the clean copy. - I have deleted all bookmarks, closed firefox, deleted the places file, then restored the clean copy.
3) I have uninstalled and reinstalled firefox - I have done this then and restored the clean copy
4) I have created a new sync account and tried that, but that did not work either
When in safe mode, the bookmarks do not duplicate. But outside of safe mode they duplicate exponentially. I don't know what else to try.
