Clear Favorites from duplicate and inactive bookmarks

If you are used to saving a lot of web pages as bookmarks in your browser Favorites, you will find that over time many of them are inactive or redirect to other content, and it is common for us to save the same webpage more than once.bookmarks

The solution to this problem is given by the Bookmarks clean up extension, which checks your bookmarks and shows you the results of duplicate and dead addresses (Url with error code 403,404, 502, 503, request time out etc) which we can select and delete at will.

It also removes empty Favorites folders and merges duplicates (a common occurrence after bookmarks are imported from another browser).

Installation:
  • For users Firefox

https://addons.mozilla.org/el/firefox / addon / bookmarks-clean-up /

  • For users Chromium/Edge etc. (chromium based)

https://chrome.google.com/webstore / detail / bookmarks-clean-up /oncbjlgldmiagjophlhobkogeladjijl

After installation the icon appears in the browser toolbox (two blue diamonds)
