CheckPlaces – Remove invalid bookmarks from Firefox

Remember AM-DeadLink, the tool that scans and removes dead and duplicate links from your browser bookmarks? CheckPlaces does the same. While AM DeadLink is a standalone application that supports Internet Explorer, Firefox and Opera, CheckPlaces is a Firefox addon and works only with Firefox.

CheckPlaces adds itself to the bookmark menu and hence it’s easier to access. You can also reach it from the toolbar or status bar. Checkplaces perform three kinds of cleaning operation – it checks whether the saved links still exist, it checks for duplicate entries and it searches for empty folder. When you run this tool, you will be asked to select the bookmark folders you wish to scan.


Choose your bookmark folders and run the scan. The time taken to scan will depend on the number of entries you have, and on completion it will display a detailed results. Finally, click on the Delete button to remove the links with errors.


CheckPlaces is an experimental addon, so you will require to login with your Mozilla account in order to install it. If you don’t already have one, then sign up for free.


  1. If check place is working only with firefox then I don't think there is a need to install this. As the firefox itself is giving the add on for saving the bookmarks and using them anywhere we want by just registering the account.

How to Schedule Changes to Your Facebook Page Cover Photo
