400.000 bookmarks slowing now ffx and bm-manger down

Hi....

I've been using the same firefox (installed every update) for over 10 years now and a lot of bookmarks have been accumulated. They are from different sources for different reasons/subjects/interests etc... I think when I reached ~430.000 or something like that it really slowed firefox down in a way that even clicking on a folder in the "bookmark symbol bar" (the one underneath the URL address fiel) takes 2-3 sec to open up and show the containing bookmarks. In the bm-manager going from one folder to another also takes a few seconds. I've now deleted about 40.000 but no change it's still lagging. and deleting 1000 takes about 1h.

I've looked but so far I couldn't find another tool or a better way to manage all these URLs WITH their title.

I still want to keep them, but managing them has become so slow and tedious. So if you have any suggestions especially for other tools to manage them....

I also think the possibility to export only a part of them (selected ones, or specific folders) would be helpful; maybe also a tool to clean up the database? (like defrag did for harddrives?). or split it to differnt files? I don't know.

I know 400.000 bookmarks are extreme... but well....

Sorry, can't help with the other parts, but I belive that you can "defrag" the bookmarks / history files by doing the following.

In the Help menu select More Troubleshooting Information, then scroll down to Places Database and press the Verify Integrity button.

If nothing else, this will check for errors and can reduce the file sizes of the files that hold your bookmarks and other records, by "vacuuming" them.

You could speed up by editing an HTML backup as that is easier than editing a JSON backup, you lose annotations with an HTML backup. You can test the edited backup in a new profile.
