happens the same to me after updated to KDE 5.3
The bug importance should change to major, as each time Dolphin opens take more time to load and freeze while loading

I manually removed the duplicated bookmarks from 
and as long I don't do any modification on places panel, doesn't appear any more duplicates.
but any operation on places panel like hide or delete or add, make appear duplicates again.
meanwhile, this helped me with the load when started.

I noticed now that when places panel is edited, XML of new site is saved in file
but when Dolphins opens read places data from
I managed to create my bookmarks manually on bookmarks.xml files and works fine.
Hopes that helps t find the root problem

Sorry, is the other way around

Saves on
read when opens from

I can confirm this issue, but manually editing ".kde4/share/apps/kfileplaces/bookmarks.xml" only helps once. dolphin adds the four "Home", "Network", "Root", "Trash" entries on every start.

I have removed both "~/.local/share/user-places.xbel" and ".local/share/kfileplaces/bookmarks.xml" but this did not help.

When I started to edit the duplicates out of ".kde4/share/apps/kfileplaces/bookmarks.xml" it had almost 10k lines with dozens of duplicates of all sort of drives.

Note: I recently tried out KF 5.3, but moved back to KDE 4 (4.14.7, will update to 4.14.8 today.)
Comment 10 Simon 2015-05-28 00:07:54 UTC
I can also confirm the bug. I could hardly use dolphin before i removed the bookmarks.xml file. I also removed ~/.kde/share/config/dolphinrc and ~/.kde/share/apps/dolphin, but it didn't help.
And I have exactly the same versions of kde, kio and kdelibs as Victor.
Comment 11 Sven Eden 2015-05-28 12:26:05 UTC
Update: After updating to 4.14.8 the issue disappeared for me.

Comment 13 Emmanuel Pescosta 2015-05-28 17:57:22 UTC
This bug should be fixed with the following package versions: 
* kde-baseapps >= 15.04.1 
* kdelibs >= 4.14.8 
* KIO >= 5.10 (if you have KF5 installed)

@Sven: Can you confirm it? :)
Comment 14 Sven Eden 2015-05-29 11:15:20 UTC
@Emmanuel: I have the following packages installed, and dolphin no longer duplicates the basic bookmarks:


So the updates of kdelibs from 4.14.7 to 4.14.8 seems to be the fix for the problem.
Comment 15 Víctor 2015-06-01 21:04:09 UTC
The bug has been fixed with the update to Plasma 5.3.1. Thanks to the devs.
