I have noticed 3 new bookmarks I never added for 2 websites I've visited recently show up in my bookmarks bar.

I did a scan with Avast One (free version) and it says no viruses or malware found

Any thoughts on what's adding the 3 bookmarks?

Thanks.

Use of Google Translator adds incredible amounts of links in the browser's history

When you use Google's Translator, this application automatically adds a link to Firefox's history each time you modify even a tiny bit of what you are translating.

This means that sometimes, you can add 1,000 links within a day when you incrementally translate a piece of text, what is the default way to do.

Today, two minutes of that work generated 40 links!

Example of a typical link:

https://translate.google.com/?hl=de&sl=de&tl=en&text=Manchmal%20ist%20es%20wichtiger%2C%20etwas%20zu%20schenken%2C%20als%20wie%20es%20beim%20Adressaten%20ankommt&op=translate

And that was only a small piece of text!

In my history, there are in between 50,000 of these, despite regularly deleting many of them.

Even on a relatively fast notebook, deleting 1,000 links in the history takes minutes.

I posted the problem to Google Translate as a feedback many times, but they never answered.

Is there a possibility within Firefox to selectively get rid of this permanent garbage?

That would be wonderful.
