could you try: \components\com_kunena\views\topic\view.html.php line 962

change:
$title = JText::sprintf('COM_KUNENA_VIEW_TOPICS_DEFAULT', $this->topic->subject) . " ({$page}/{$pages})";

to:
if ($page) {
				$title = JText::sprintf('COM_KUNENA_VIEW_TOPICS_DEFAULT', $this->topic->subject) . " ({$page}/{$pages})";
			} else {
				$title = JText::sprintf('COM_KUNENA_VIEW_TOPICS_DEFAULT', $this->topic->subject);
			}

I have found many duplicate titles at my forum page.

There are many with topic name with aditional number at the end.
vse-o-krmivech.cz/forum/krmeni-psu/5-obezita/10
vse-o-krmivech.cz/forum/krmeni-psu/5-obezita

Why is there the url with /10 at the end?

There is second groupe with different url looking like that:
vse-o-krmivech.cz/forum/krmeni-psu/11-ho...ace/70?limitstart=30
vse-o-krmivech.cz/forum/krmeni-psu/11-ho...ace/70?limitstart=36

What does this limitstart means and why is it there?

Is there any way how to avoid these duplicates?

Why is there the url with /10 at the end?
*) the message id.

What does this limitstart means and why is it there?
*) Limitstart is needed for the pagination, then the system know how to resolve it to pages.

Is there any way how to avoid these duplicates?
*) We will check it, how to improve it. we don't get that urls by default, only if you use own menu items.

Thank you for clarification,

For me are the urls a little bit weird.

This is the page one and correct link a href from the page code.
vse-o-krmivech.cz/forum/krmeni-psu/11-hodnoceni-deklarace
<title>Hodnocení deklarace - Fórum vse-o-krmivech</title>
	<link href="/forum/krmeni-psu/11-hodnoceni-deklarace?limitstart=6" rel="next"

Why is there the url with /10 at the end?
*) the message id.

This is the same page with message No 68. Link to the message is refered as page anchor link #68.
vse-o-krmivech.cz/forum/krmeni-psu/11-hodnoceni-deklarace#68
<a href="#68" id="68" rel="canonical">#68</a>
The /68 is not anchor link. Site system shows refered url and first page. Morever, such page behave strange. If user select any other page the browser do not move and stay at the first page
vse-o-krmivech.cz/forum/krmeni-psu/11-hodnoceni-deklarace/68

What does this limitstart means and why is it there?
*) Limitstart is needed for the pagination, then the system know how to resolve it to pages.

This is the url and href from a wrong refered page that cause duplication. Please pay attention the "limitstart" starts with "?". In addition to the correct url (below) it has the strange part of url (/70) that I described above and that probably is the source of all issues.
vse-o-krmivech.cz/forum/krmeni-psu/11-ho...ace/70?limitstart=42
<title>Hodnocení deklarace - Fórum vse-o-krmivech</title>
	<link href="/forum/krmeni-psu/11-hodnoceni-deklarace/70?limitstart=6" rel="next" />
This is the url correctly refered page 7. The page contain the page number in the title in order to avoid duplicates - correct.
vse-o-krmivech.cz/forum/krmeni-psu/11-ho...larace?limitstart=36
<title>Hodnocení deklarace - Strana: 7] - Fórum vse-o-krmivech</title>
<link href="/forum/krmeni-psu/11-hodnoceni-deklarace?limitstart=30" rel="prev" />
<link href="/forum/krmeni-psu/11-hodnoceni-deklarace?limitstart=42" rel="next" />

I have checked the Kunena menu and there seems to be no issue - see attached picture. I am ready to provide any additional informations.

Here the report configuration:
