this should be verified on Firefox 30+, the code pretty much changed there.
O.K., I may have spoken too soon.  I had decided to let the backup bookmarks "build up" to see where, and if, they would stop. Yesterday, FF 28 had built up to 5. Today, however, instead of having 6, it deleted the 5th and currently I have 4 bookmark backups. Hmmm...
If the problem has reoccurred, please test the latest version of Firefox. Then post a comment if this report needs to be reopened.
