I am running windows xp and firefox 2.0 and when ever I go to upgrade to any version of firefox my book marks will quadruple and I have no idea as to why I have even tried to move my saved book marks onto a disk and it still will do the same thing. Any help with this would be greatly appreciated. cw

Try to delete places.sqlite and all the .JSON backups in the bookmarkbackups folder in the Firefox Profile Folder.

I went into the profile folder and found these files but it will not allow you to delete them so now what do you do. I am wondering if I go in and search the hard drive and delete everything that has to do with bookmarks then try to down load the up grade and then load my book marks from a disk would that work? cw
