How can I clean up thousands of duplicate bookmarks on a Mac?

Every time I import bookmarks to a new browser I end up with duplicates of all the bookmarks that were already there. Multiply that by a few times and now I have over 16,000, which slowed down my browser so much I had to just archive it and start over.

I searched around and haven’t been able to find any tool to automate the process of weeding out duplicates other than a Chrome extension (Bookmark Sentry) that doesn’t really work, and AM-Deadlink, which is only for Windows (I have a Mac). Any suggestions?

    Bookmark Duplicate Detector 0.7.5 for firefox. If you're using something else - import them, clean them up then export them back.

    Which browser are you using?

      Chrome, but I'd use any browser!
