Windows 7: Tired of Firefox duplicating my Bookmarks

Tired of Firefox duplicating my Bookmarks

Suddenly all of my bookmarks are duplicated. At first there was a second identical list one on top of the other, then when they Sorted by Name there are two of each all the way down the list.

How do I eliminate duplicates? Is it too late to delete all and then restore the synch?

Is this a known issue for Firefox sync? It has happened several times in the past 5 years.

I've upgraded to latest Firefox in spite of it not dragging Bookmarks into my 7F posts intact so that they retain their name after posting. I need to rightclick each one to Copy to get it to read correctly, which is also annoying. It stopped allowing me to drag them into post by name in v.12 which no longer supports stable flash function.

Firefox duplicated bookmarks?

I'm not sure how this happens. Personally I use a 64bit FF variant and haven't used Firefox 32bit in a long time although if they get round to releasing the 64bit version - I'll try it.

I'm just wondering if you ever vacuum your FF SQLite databases as I've heard that not doing so can cause issues and even possibly some corruption.

My personal choice for vacuuming FF (it works with non default profiles too).

I run it every few days!

Also I tend to make weekly profile backups just in case something screws up - and it has done on a few occasions.
