Bookmarks not staying deleted

Yesterday I sorted and deleted bookmarks in the sidebar. I also deleted most of the bookmarks in the top ribbon (some were moved to the sidebar). Today all the deleted bookmarks came back into the top ribbon after I visited a couple of new webpages. I have also noticed earlier that some bookmarks that I delete in the sidebar keep coming back again the next time I open Firefox. If these are bookmarks that I have moved, they now appear in both the old and new place.

Can you confirm whether you are using Sync to sync the bookmarks ?

If you have the iCloud Bookmarks extension then uninstall this extension.


If errors are reported with "Verify Integrity", close and restart Firefox or reboot and retry.

If "Verify Integrity" cannot repair places.sqlite, rename/remove all places.sqlite and favicons.sqlite files in the Firefox profile folder with Firefox closed. Firefox will rebuild places.sqlite and restore the bookmarks from a recent JSON backup in the bookmarkbackups folder.

  • keep a backup copy of places.sqlite in case a new places.sqlite database has to be created

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.

Thanks FredMcD. I have gone through the steps, but am not clear where or how to post the results to the page reference given.

Does the report show a problem?

The places.sqlite file contains your History and Bookmarks. And it looks like it is corrupted.

Type about:support<enter> in the address bar.

Under the page logo on the left side, you will see Application Basics. Under this find Profile Folder. To its right press the button Show Folder. This will open your file browser to the current Firefox profile. Now Close Firefox.

Locate the above file. Then rename or delete it. Restart Firefox. The browser should then create a new place.sqlite and recover your bookmarks from the backup files.

Note: Your history is not backed up and will be lost.

This only works for a short while. After I reopen Firefox, I delete the unwanted bookmarks in the top ribbon. Close and reopen Firefox. Then somewhere between 5 and 5 1/2 minutes later, with no other activity or action, they all come back. I have gone through the process twice to be sure.

I disabled the iCloud Bookmarks extension. That seems to have been the cause of the problem.

I deleted the "places" files, but not the "favicons" files.

The links to the other help information were most useful. Thank you all for your help.
