It's not a bug, its a feature

Well, not really. It is a bug. But it's an ancient bug, I recall seeing this many years ago in the earliest releases of Netscape 4. Netscape and Mozilla will just choke when your bookmark file is too large. But there is an easy fix. Netscape bookmark files have one excellent property, they are fully formed web pages. You can take them out of their standard location, store them somewhere else, load them from your local hard disk, and bookmark them in your new bookmarks file. I have two huge bookmark files containing hundreds of links, I just put them in a safe spot on my local hard disk, and bookmarked them. My bookmarks menu is relatively short now, with two quick jumping-off spots for my mega-lists, and the browser runs at full speed.
