Firefox is suggesting me my old (removed) bookmark

as stated in title, which is very strange, since i have removed the bookmark and i have multichecked everywhere and make sure it does not exist anymore. I have even cleard all history and every data i have. Still suggest me the same thing. Disable "suggest bookmark" doesn't work but oddly disabling "suggest history" works. Yes, i heard that you can manually pop firefox suggestion on firefox pc, but it is not the case on mobile.

That implies to me that firefox is storing my data somewhere on my firefox account that i couldnt manage, which creeps me out and i dont like the idea that i have no control of my own data.

imo, firefox account manager should provide more features for user to better control of their own data because ironically, google does all of that despite that they are notorious of privacy invasive (though whether they actually removed the data or not is another thing)

Firefox Android has this problem for years. Sadly they never fix. Only thing that works is reinstalling the app.

Sometimes I have the same problem (on PC) that URLs of old bookmarks are suggested in the address bar although I removed those bookmarks. The only way to manually remove these suggestions which I've found to work for me is:

  1. open the URL of the old bookmark
  2. add URL as bookmark, bookmark name and folder doesn't matter
  3. remove the bookmark again

Now, the URL shouldn't be suggested anymore.
