From Bugzilla Helper: User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Win98; en-US; m16) Gecko/20000604 BuildID: 2000060408 Duplicate bookmarks don't show up in either the dropdown bookmark menu or the bookmark manager. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Open Mozilla. 2. Load any page that's not already bookmarked. 3. Bookmark the page twice. Actual Results: The page appears only once in the bookmarks menu and the bookmark manager, even though it appears twice in the bookmarks.html file. Expected Results: The bookmark should show up twice in the bookmarks menu and bookmark manager. I'm not sure what the intended behavior is here. Here's a few methods I can think of for dealing with duplicate bookmarks: 1. Display bookmarks whether or not they're duplicates. This makes the most sense to me. 2. Don't allow duplicate bookmarks in the same folder. This seems like a bad idea, since it could create problems when people moved bookmarks between folders. 3. Don't display duplicate bookmarks in the dropdown menus, but display them in the bookmark manager. This seems kinda pointless. But the current behavior allows users to create bookmarks that can't be removed within the application, and I don't think that's wise.
I'm uploading a testcase for this bug. Replace your bookmarks.html with the attachment. It should show 10 consecutive bookmarks to mozilla.org, followed by one to bugzilla, followed by 10 to mozilla.org. Instead, it just shows one to mozilla.org and one to bugzilla.
Also a bug on Mac OS 8.6/2000061411. Therefore, I set Platfom to ALL and OS to ALL. Duplicates are stored in the file, and therefore if you delete one in the Bookmark Manager, another will appear. Maybe we should mark as MAJOR or CRITICAL as it could lead to a major loss of hard drive space which would be hard to recover.

Reassigning 79 Bookmarks bugs to Ben. I was told this was going to be done shortly about two months ago, but it clearly hasn't been. I think that's long enough for all these bugs to remain assigned to nobody. Feel free to filter all this spam into the trashcan by looking for this string in the message body: ducksgoquack

This is a big pain because they are easy to create just by drag/droping in the bookmarks manager (not sure why this happens).
And, if there's a shortcut assigned to more than one bookmark, the shortcut fails (based on errors with %s).

Wow, bookmark handling seems to be the only component to actually get worse. Currently (build 2001122108) it still hides duplicate bookmarks, only the first instance can be seen. However, there are some new twists: Duplicate bookmarks in the same folder are now eliminated when loading the bookmark file. That was NOT a good idea ! It is merely pretending that this bug is a feature. Try this: create a duplicate, then move the first instance somewhere else. Close and open the folder. What do you see ? On top of that, the first instance uses a later instance's name for some reason. So if you rename the first bookmark, then bookmark the same page, you'll see the bookmark under the old name again. Combined with the duplicate elimination this makes for some interesting behaviour.

adding a couple of obvious keywords to Summary to help improve search results and cut down on dupes (like my bug 119706) also 4xp to Keywords line
Summary: Duplicate bookmarks don't show up, even in bookmark manager → Duplicate bookmarks don't show up (hidden, invisible), even in bookmark manager

Update: more fun with duplicates (now at Linux build 2002041711). 1. Bookmark a site (slashdot.org for example) and change the title of the bookmark (to just "Slashdot") 2. Move it to a folder on your personal toolbar 3. Bookmark the site again 4. Open the folder on your personal toolbar, the bookmark changed its name back ! 5. Open the bookmark manager, notice how both bookmarks have the title YOU entered, as opposed to the title the personal toolbar is showing Is it time to open a new bug for this ? I feel like it's still related to duplicates, but the bookmark manager has become this unholy Cthulhu-like entity, so I'm not sure...
This is the same bug as bug 51683. It's not a dependency. That one has more activity. Resolving this one as a dupe of bug 51683. If this is not a dupe, reopen. *** This bug has been marked as a duplicate of 51683 ***
