    iOS Safari and the never ending duplicate Bookmarks
    Hey all,

    Anyone have any idea why safari on my iPhone 11 Pro Max (iOS 13.4) creates duplicates of amazon.ca and craigslist.org? If I delete one of them, 2 more pop up. My bookmarks should be shared via the iCloud for both my Mac and my iPhone... but I get duplicates only.

    I restored my device and set up as new and the issue seemed resolved, but that's no way to live. I've spent years getting my iOS arranged the way I like it and while I can do it again if I need to, I would REALLY rather not. I have since restored my backup, issue returned.

    I managed to slow the duplication by turning iCloud sync off in Firefox on both my Windows machines, but the issue persists.

    Help!

    Edit: Completely removed all iCloud/iTunes/Apple anything software from both Windows Machines. Issue continues.

    Are you syncing bookmarks with Safari from your Mac? You need to check there to see if there are duplicates not the Windows version of Firefox.

    That's the crazy part. I was syncing them, then it all went haywire. I can't even create a new bookmark on the phone. I'm very puzzled.

    Are you also using the iCloud Bookmarks sync from your winOS PC's? Maybe turn just that off, for testing purposes?

    Please backup. Everything has a life cycle, unexpected and warning free. Nothing will last as long as you want it to.

    The issue corrected itself with the macOS 10.15.4 update. Thanks!
