Duplicating Bookmarks in Firefox Quantum

Postby syntax53613 » Tue Nov 07, 2017 3:28 pm

I am trying out Firefox Quantum and therefor using the webextensions vesion of xmarks. I am not having and issue where my bookmarks keep getting duplicated. I have to go back and find the revision and restore. I've been an xmarks user since the old days when it was called Foxmarks so I know how to handle the upload and downloads when setting up new browsers. However, after a restore and then making sure I download and overwrite on other browsers, I'm still ending up with duplicated bookmarks later on.

Also of note: When doing a restore via the webpage, it never completes. It sits there saying "restoring bookmarks..." and never goes away. However, the bookmarks have been restored.

It would appear it is the firefox quantum version of the extension. I had one browser on a different computer (not running quantum) sync this morning just fine. As soon as I loaded quantum, a few seconds later I was duplicated.

fierfox.com (as in, literally right on the home page of firefox.com)

If you use Firefox already, your browser will automatically update to Firefox 57. You can manually force an update simply by inspecting what version you are running:

Weird. Seems like they pulled it. I have v4.5.0.4 of the extension installed. I actually uninstalled it within the developers edition of firefox I was using due to the problems I was having (duplication). Now I'm back on retail firefox and when it upgraded to quantum it either auto-updated the extension or it just kept the same version I had (which I had installed the beta from https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefo ... /versions/ but it's not there now either).
