All I care about is that the web site appears when I load it.
When you have many bookmarks, you can speed up your searching for specific bookmark, just simply by looking mostly on specific bookmark favicon.
I have for example, only bookmarks with favicons without any names in Bookmarks Toolbar, it's just simply to see more bookmarks there.

Wow! Really? That does sound somewhat extreme. But then I know people with emails going back years and most of those are old Linux friends with mailing list answers to problems whose software no longer exists. :-)
Yes, I have been gathering them starting from 1998 year, when I was starting having access to internet.
Now, I have about 20-25k bookmarks sorted in detail, others are unfortunately still unsorted and probably 99% of them still will be deleted, but I will sort them "SOON™".

Are you ready for deprecation of XUL & XBL & XPCOM extensions? Not?! Try Firefox ESR 52

Because it's imaginary security/insecurity what matters? I think not.

No, because it's a dead man walking.

ESR's are great for corporate environments where any release has to be properly tested sometimes with weeks of testing with internal web pages.

Pretty much what they are designed for.
