    Wow :eek:

    I don't know a way to Batch delete them so I suppose a factory reset may be your Fastest bet.

    Anyone else have any more suggestions though?

    I tried restoring to default. it doesnt wipe the bookmarks!

    I tried going into the phone using a file explorer and navigating to ect/bookmarks.xml but i cant edit or delete the file.

    Is there any way to edit files on the phone like the bookmarks.xml file?

    I love finding old answers...

    I just tried importing my bookmarks (with MyBookmarks, free on android market) into Dolphin. I have 1600 bookmarks. Yes, I know...

    Anyhow, I didn't find them. Tried 3 times to re-import them. No good. Then I remembered that they probably showed in the stock browser. BINGO! Almost 5000 bookmarks. :eek:

    You saved me a TON of 'select - delete - confirm deletion.' Thanks!

    Now I'm off to pare down my bookmarks and try it again. :)

    Yeah its great.

    To give you guys an update....

    I use foxmarks in my firefox to sync ALL my bookmarks between my desktop and laptop.

    I love it.

    Furthermore... to fix the issue of bookmarks on my Android...

    I just bookmarked the Foxmarks page on my android. So now if i need to access a bookmark off my desktop... i just go to the foxmarks website on my android. That works wonderfullyyyyy.

    Hope that helps
