    Erased Bookmark still populating


    Much obliged to receive your interest!

    Firefox 65.0.2 (64-bit)

    So I have deleted a particular website from my bookmarks but it still pops up in my url bar when I search for the word bike. Where else could it be hiding? Do you have any other ideas?

    I would guess the question is how your search engine is biassing your results.

    First, as you have already found this site, it could well be one that is high in search ranking. That is completely unrelated to whether you have or have ever had it in your favourites.

    Second, your particular search engine might bias results based on your search history.

    Have you tried a different search engine? Compare your results with those of, say, duckduckgo.

    Deleting a bookmark/favourite is unrelated in principle to your search results.

    Screenshot please.

    Are you saying you are searching files, or the internet? Sorry, I don't understand what sort of search you are doing, and with what, based on what you've said.

    Deleted bookmark appears as still bookmarked (cant delete) | Firefox Support Forum | Mozilla Support

    it seems the issue was a leftover bookmark keyword or tag possibly but how those were linked to a bookmark i feel i erased I have no idea. I solved the issue by bookmarking the site again and then before saving the bookmark i erased the tag. Then i erased the bookmark again and it wont show.
