Is there a limit on the size of the bookmark file. Lately, I have been having bookmarks disappear when resourses get low in XP.

Also, why can I not switch to a nother bookmark file like you can in 4.79?

You mean you're running out of hard drive space?

Not a problem with disk space. It is just that the bookmark files deletes entries on its own.

I know you said low resources, but you didn't explain.
Is FB crashing, or is windows doing it's BSOD thing?
Either one will cause bookmark losses. It is a known issue.
Backup the bookmarks on a regular basis, manually, or there is at least one app that will do it for you.
Search from the right side of this screen in the FB forums for bookmark backup, and select All Terms. It will show up as a link in several posts.
You might also check the extension room. I think there is an extension that backs up the bookmarks. Not 100% sure,but I think I remember seeing it

I do mine manually every third day.
