How to prevent duplicate bookmarks (when saving them, not from syncing)?

Is there a Bookmarks setting that checks whether a bookmark you are about to save already exists?

That is, checks its URL (not its ‘title’ – which could vary).

All of the posts I’ve seen here on the topic deal with duplication from syncing.

I would just like an alert letting me know that the bookmark (i.e., its URL) already exists – and if possible displaying its location (bookmarks folder).


No internal setting that does this. There’s likely a extension you can use that will tidy your bookmarks up for you or catch them before you add a duplicate though. I’d recommend looking through at some extensions and see what you can find.

I’ve never seen anything that does on the fly, but this bookmark cleaner extension was pretty good from what I’ve played with…
