I have about 400 files in c:\windows\favorites\ (not counting files in subfolders). Mozilla reads each one when it launches, accounting for 12% of the time it takes Mozilla to launch. 400 MHz PII, 128 MB RAM, Win98 runnning Mozilla build 2001101803. Programs used: - Sysinternals File Monitor, to determine which files Mozilla is reading. - "Another Task Manager", for timing launches. (Thanks for the tip, jesus_x.) Method: - Minimize everything. (I have mIRC, AIM, AudioGalaxy, etc running.) - Double-click on Mozilla icon on desktop. - Move cursor to taskbar to avoid mouseover cpu - Active a program called "Another Task Manager" using taskbar icon.

somewhat related is bug 105966 (speed up rdf sequence building), although clearly file i/o will dominate in this case.
More bookmarks bugs, -> pchen
marking p3 and mozilla0.9.9
mass-reassign bookmarks & open pref perf bugs from pchen to ben
This will be helped by the "Improved IE favorites" bug, so Future.
Mozilla now imports IE favorites one time. Can this bug be marked worksforme?
