- by Dennis Mayr, 5 months agoRated 4 out of 5I use this extension on both Chrome and Firefox.
It does 4 things, and does them well, so I've preferred it over other similar extensions.
However, removing duplicates seems to trigger a memory-leak-like bug in Firefox, which quickly increments memory usage until the system grinds to a halt; this doesn't happen in Chrome.
Problem aside, I definitely recommend the extension over others.
- by StillMissingOldFF, 9 months agoRated 4 out of 5Great addon, it checked my 650 bookmarks quite fast and I deleted about 80 bookmarks to sites not reachable anymore. 4 websites were reachable despite marking them as not. But I expected it not to be perfect.
- by Rigido71, 10 months agoRated 4 out of 5Just installed on latest Nightly and used to clean up my Bookmarks. Everything worked like a charm removed duplicates and empty (probably left over) folders. I would give 5 starts right now but...when I tried to clean broken urls I really missed the "Folder" info as some links are for customers system and the only way to know it is the folder they're saved into.
- by Olamagato, 2 years agoRated 4 out of 5The extension is well thought out. Searching and removing duplicates works decently. Deleting empty folders and joining duplicate folders too.
In contrast, the search for broken bookmarks should be improved.
First of all, most broken links are result by any reorganization of the URLs. And this means that in addition to the problem with the link, you should also check if there is a problem with the web server itself. Because if the server is running and its default address is available, the link may not be eligible for removal. This add-on does not check it, but it should. Therefore, the URL should cut off everything after the domain name and check the connection again. Because if the server is actually unavailable and also gives a 404 error, it means that the link can no longer be repaired and restored. I miss that.
- by Mitchell, 2 years agoRated 4 out of 5It seems to work great. No major issues with the extension so far. I do want the developer to address the following:
2. Minor Issue: The menu name ("Bookmarks clean up") is the only one of my extensions that isn't in title case. It would be more consistent if it was "Bookmarks Clean Up".
- by Firefox user 14398247, 2 years agoRated 4 out of 5Although I had to apply the same operation several times before the result stuck, this was the third extension I tried but the first that actually allowed me to do a simple cleanup: first delete all duplicates that share a folder, and then evaluate the relevance of the duplicates that have been placed in different folders.
The extension offers one click removal of empty folders, but there's no manual inspection possible so I don't feel in control with that function.
- by Firefox user 13197014, 2 years agoRated 4 out of 5- this add-on correctly detected quite some dead bookmarks that '404 Bookmarks' add-on had not seen in this location. So very good.
- Dupes it detected were actual *folders*, so deleting them would have brought havoc in my bookmarks library. Not good.
- by Firefox user 12431136, 2 years agoRated 4 out of 5A tool I was looking for a few years... Thanks !
I wonder if "exclusion of folders" could be a little more put forward (I accidentally removed bookmarks of intranet sites).
The generation of screenshots could be a nice feature. It would help removing another kind od of obsolete bookmarks: those whose answer indicates that the site has been moved.
- by Firefox user 15125262, 2 years agoRated 4 out of 5There was a bit more manual interaction required than i would have liked (e.g. when it absolutely refuses to remove the last copy of a bookmark in batch mode, forcing the user to delete them individually). Also, the URL checker process pops up countless HTTP auth dialogs for sites which use HTTP Basic authentication. i'm not certain that this extension can avoid those, but it is irritating (i've got dozens of them). In any case, it's simple, clean, and easy enough to use, and it allowed me to go through and clean up a great many useless bookmarks.
- by Newrone, 3 years agoRated 4 out of 5I found 6k "broken URLs" out of 20k, but scanning through them, I can often see why: the link is an obscure & obsolete page within a useful site, so I need to be able to open the link properties & edit (shorten) the target address, but there's no option to do this, and no indication of where (what folder or subfolder) the bookmark is, so if I want to edit the links I'm going to have weeks of work ahead of me - and I'll need to save the result!
Suggestion: If an address is "broken", search again minus the last folder/page & offer that as an alternative address if it is alive.
Otherwise it seems to work fine.
- by Juanka Hula, 3 years agoRated 4 out of 5Great addon. Could you add an "exclude folder" option. Many session restorer addons and similar ones use the bookmarks as a backup and duplicates on those folders are very frequent and required so it would be nice to be able avoid scanning that. Thank you. Also it would be great if you could add a way to contact you like a mail or github in case someone wants to request a feature or report a bug.
