Hi, if you mean that the page is opening in the sidebar, right click on the bookmark > Properties, and deselect 'load this bookmark in the sidebar.'

If your question is resolved by this or another answer, please take a minute to let us know. Thank you.

Do not use the "Bookmark this page" button that appears on some webpages. The JavaScript code for that "button" is what causes that "Load this bookmark in the sidebar" to get check-marked to begin with.

There was a Bug report filed about that like 15 years ago; the developers determined that the "fix" could open Firefox to a security exploit and didn't want to fix a 'nuisance' with what could become an 'exploit'.

There are multiple ways to "Bookmark this Page" built into Firefox, so use those and get out of the habit of using "buttons" for that on webpages - if that is what caused to 'box' to get selected for that bookmark.
