Explanation:
When a letter appears after the date when citing a work there are 2 potential reasons.

Good, proper reason:
You are citing two or more _different_ items by the author that were published during a single year.

Reasons due to problems:
The same publication is included two or more times in your database and you are not citing the same one. Solution -- merge the duplicate items.

You have works in your database by the same author(s) but the author names are entered differently. Alternately, you have works by _different_ authors but their names are entered the same. It is best to enter author names in the most complete form available.

Authors who have more than one works in your library should have exactly the same names in the author field (Lastname, Firstname 2 fields). Then you have the same author name but with different degrees of completeness problems can arise. You should edit the author names of your records so that an author with a last name and initials and the _same_ author with a last name and full first (given) names should be edited.

Each time the same author is is included his or her name is listed in its most complete form. If J.A. Smith is in your database multiple times and one item is by Jane Anne Smith and another is by James Alan Smith a disambiguation problem will lead to author name confusion. [A related problem can be caused by citing two different works by the same author (but their name isn't entered exactly the same) published in the same year. Zotero will treat these works as though these works are written by different authors.]

For search&replace so say you have "Meyer 1999a" and "Meyer 1999b" -- you go to your bibliography (in the lunliked file). delete Meyer 1999b, remove the a from Meyer 1999a, then do search & replaces for
Meyer 1999a --> Meyer 1999,
Meyer 1999b --> Meyer 1999,
Meyer (1999a --> Meyer (1999,
Meyer (1999b --> Meyer (1999
