I knew I had a lot, but didn't know it was this bad. I may have some hoarding issues. My bookmarks were imported from Firefox, which was imported from old Opera, which was imported from an older Firefox... and I can't remember what happened before that. Probably well over a decade's worth of bookmarks.

I found this thread while searching for a way to 'archive' them somewhere outside my browser where I can still search through them.

Other than Pale Moon crashing while I tried in vain to close the bookmarks list after searching for a dot, I haven't noticed any performance issues with my bookmark overload. :D

Ctrl+J to open Library, select 'All Bookmarks,' 'Import and Backup' drop-down, 'Export Bookmarks to HTML....' The resulting file can be imported into Pale Moon or Firefox. :D

55 folders, 494 bookmarks. I did a recent cleanup of them and deleted probably a few hundred so use to be more. I access them through the menu bar's "Bookmarks". I never use the bookmarks toolbar. I always close all tabs on exiting browser. On my homepage I have a few commonly used links bookmarked there as well.

I did a little experiment with this. I exported all my 14k bookmarks, and imported them into both Basilisk and Waterfox. The import time was about the same, but when I opened them in the sidebar and did a test search, Waterfox stopped responding for over a minute before displaying the results, whereas Basilisk displayed the results nearly instantly. Guess which one is more likely to be my archival browser? 8-) (Either that or another portable Pale Moon... still deciding.)
