Am I understanding this correctly?

HTML backup (bookmarks) doesn't support tags and annotations, but JSON backup does, and JSON backup doesn't preserve the website favicons, but HTML backup does?  

So, what I can do, is restore my (saved) bookmarks using JSON backup, then restore the HTML backup, this would get my tags and annotations, and the website favicons back? But the downside, I will need to remove duplicates?

How many bookmarks do you have? If you have a lot then you should be careful with reloading favicons.

Restoring a JSON backup will give you all metadata including the iconuri, but not the actual icon image and this means that you would have to visit each bookmark to retrieve its favicon. If you have a favicons.sqlite with suitable icon data then this might be helpful. Additionally importing an HTML backup will likely duplicate all bookmarks in case both sets are the same, but only the bookmarks from the JSON backup will have the tags and other annotations and only the imported HTML bookmarks will have the favicon, so this is not what you want.

Hi cor-el,

Thank you for you response, I appreciate it. You asked how many bookmarks I have. So, I have one too many bookmarks to be honest. I don't know if I should describe it as ridiculous or just sad ... sigh! LOL!! So, It was the tags and other annotations that I was worried about, I couldn't quite remember. Anyway, I did restore my bookmarks using the JSON backup, and the tags and other annotations I had save are all there. I should be good to go now. Also, thank you for the link, I'll be sure to check it out. Thank you once again.
