Hello joseph_p_marinan, what do you mean by "check bookmarks ?" if you be more specific we can help you.

just a guess if helps : Search Results for "bookmarks"

thank you

Thank you for the reply. I mean check each bookmark to see if it is live or dead. [Does it work or not.]

There used to be several freeware utilities to do this, but they cannot keep up with the speed of Mozilla updates.

Sorry, I received no notice of your PM.

In following your suggestion I came across authors explanation for pulling his program, and wish to concur with his wishes.

It did lead to the program I used years ago, AM-Deadlink, which I'll mention as a general reply. It's now in a new version.

Anyhow, thank you,however belatedly.

AM-Deadlink (v 4.6) does work now with Firefox 3.0+ versions (with the places.sqlite database), but you can't edit or delete "dead links", or retrieve Favicons. IMO, being able to delete "deadlinks" one-at-a-time or all of them is/was a key feature of Deadlink.

U R so right ! Big disappointment.

You can "Move to Top" and then print them and edit them from "Show all Bookmarks". But it's nowhere near as fast.
