Description

10 years ago
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open Google's homepage twice
2. Bookmark all tabs (Ctrl+Shift+D and Enter)

Expected result:
Two Google bookmarks inside a folder named "[Folder Name]".

Actual result:
Only one bookmark inside that new folder.

The current behavior might prevent duplicate bookmarks, it however violates the principle of least surprise (imagine you had the same URL open in two tabs about 50 tabs across - in two different contexts - and now one of them's suddenly missing).


BTW: Shouldn't Places and Bookmarks&History be the same component (resp. Places be moved to Toolkit)? The difference between the two components is currently quite hard to tell.

That has been reported as bug 451915.

I agree that the deduping is a problem. I do sometimes have one URL in multiple tabs on purpose.

Convert get uniqueCurrentPages to get currentPages

Only this feature and related tests used the uniqueCurrentPages getter, so this patch just converts it so it no longer filters for uniqueness.
