Firefox Bookmark Backups (HTML)
Hello, Has something changed recently in how bookmarks are backed up in HTML format ? In mid-May I backed up my bookmarks, and the resulting file was about 13.8 Meg in length. I was using whichever Firefox version was current at the time. I recently upgraded to the latest version (103.0.1, 64-bit, Windows 10). Today when I did a backup the file size was only 7.7 Meg. I have even more bookmarks now than back in May, so I'm confused about why the backup file is half the size. Is this normal or is there a problem somewhere ? Thanks in Advance

A lot of space in an HTML backup is usually taken by the favicon icons that are encoded as base64 data URI (data:image/png;base64,<base64_code>), so maybe that last backup has less icon data. You can check that in a text editor.
