Previous saved bookmarks.html files were almost twice the size. If I rely on this much smaller folder for saving my I may lose bookmark data. Can someone explain why my folder is now suddenly so much smaller?

Since I upgraded to 3.6.3 my bookmarks folder has become nearly half the size upon exporting it in html format. I normally refresh my working copy of Mozilla by saving the bookmarks and then erasing all aspects of Firefox and starting over from scratch. I am concerned that if I rely upon this smaller folder I may be losing data. Can someone tell me what is happening here? It could be that this is just an improvement in Firefox but I do not know how to test the waters to see if all my data is saved.

Are you comparing the size of the bookmarks.html file that is exported from Firefox 3.6.3 to a bookmarks.html file that was exported from earlier versions of Firefox? Really shouldn't be a difference, there hasn't been a change to Firefox regarding the bookmarks.html file in years.

I have some history of the past bookmarks.html folders that were saved and so YES I am making a comparison. Any suggestions as to why the folder is now half the size?
