Howdy Ya'll!

Safari started crashing on startup and I isolated my bookmarks.plist as the culprit. When I removed it, all was as it should be. Is there a way that I can recover my bookmarks? The file is 144k, so it still contains my info. I'm running Safari 1.0.3 (v85.8.1) and 10.2.8

Any help wpuld be greatly appreciated as my memory stinks!!!!

It might be slightly cumbersome...but how about this:

Put the plist file back in place, use Safari Bookmark Exporter to export the bookmarks out of Safari (since you don't need to be running Safari), and then use the debug menu to get them back?

Otherwise get a plist editor? But I doubt that would do it in a very friendly way....
