Hmmm. I just learned something new. I did not know that
places.sqlite contains all the bookmarks. I thought only
Bookmarks.html contained the bookmarks.

By the way, you do not care about your browsing history?
I find it very useful when I want to type-in the URL
myself in the address bar, and firefox pops up matching
suggestions and I select the one that matches. This is
a very nice feature for web pages that have long URL's,
and you do not always want to consult the bookmarks to
see where is that page you bookmarked.

Good luck,
