I live with about 6 folders on my tab bar and under each is about 20

If I need software it's the Software folder on the bar. If I need
shopping it's the shopping folder, or travel folder etc. Those aren't
right but you get the idea.

I use the same /bookmarks.html file as the home page for all versions of
FF I have.
Interesting. I wrote a C++ program to parse the file into web pages,
one per folder with all the sub links. I use that a lot too when on
the road because it's uploaded to my server.
Mine is maybe 700 entries, many of them duplicates. I once applied a
'remove dead links' thing to it. It churned for a long time and found a
few hundred. Unfortunately it couldn't save them. Stupid program. Easy
to copy to new devices, though.
Chrome is easier to parse but I found a python script on the web to
convert the bookmarks.html from FF to a similar Chrome bookmarks file.
So my code works for both browsers. I used to be a heavy Chrome user
and if FF keeps going south as I've been reading, I may go back. I
just like the appearance a userChrome.css can do to FF.
I'd like Chrome a lot better if I could have a permanent vertical tab
bar like FF has. I don't see how people can live with 20 or 30 tabs on
a horizontal bar. I don't see how people can use the standard output of
'ls' either. WE READ LISTS VERTICALLY, at least that's how humans do it!
I made an alias 'll' for 'ls -al'
I've been doing that since the 70's on SCO Unix.
