Browser crash with large number of bookmarks to up-sync. #170
Describe the issue you are experiencing
Initially I had noticed that my bookmarks had been reduced from ~1780 down to ~200. Firefox apparently has a built-in backup of the last ~15 revisions to bookmarks and saves them as restore points. Checking the timestamps, it appears that the bookmark lossage happened around 3/12. I was able to restore my bookmarks from backup to the original ~1780. However, when xbs tries to sync back up, it causes the browser to freeze up. Perhaps it is too large a number to queue up and sync. I've disabled xbs for the time being, and at least I have my bookmarks restored. I think I may try to slice up my current bookmark set into smaller chunks to see if I can get xbs to successfully sync back up.
How can the issue be reproduced?
I can reproduce this every time by re-enabling xbs and attempting to sync up the ~1780 bookmarks. Although I haven't tried directly, I think these steps should be able to simulate:
