I'm not trying to beat a dead horse and would like to avoid the acrimony that surrounded the previous post on this topic (https://portableapps.com/node/7439), but I wanted to revisit the issue of slow bookmark updates.
The USB drive speed seems to be a significant factor, but in my own personal tests (identical bookmarks.html file on multiple fast/reliable USB 2.0 drives), the bookmarks.html file itself makes a big difference.
What I'm wondering:
1) Is there a way to structure your bookmarks to minimize this update delay? I am a bookmark junkie and typically have hundreds and that seems to be part of the problem.
2) Has anyone come across a workaround either with a Firefox setting or maybe an extension or add-on? Is there anything that can be done through software to alleviate this delay?
I just would like to see some discussion on this topic. I'd be willing to offer up my bookmarks.html file if anyone wants to do their own testing.
