Safari Prairiefire helps retire old/expired bookmarks from within Safari. It displays Safari's bookmarks in a list, and determines if they point to dead and missing links. It can identify and help delete duplicates. Allows the user to delete any bookmarks without going to Safari. The user has full control over the process, can decide whether to scan through all bookmarks or a selection, and can also test individual bookmarks directly by launching them from the application. RSS feed URLs are supported.

To add to the other's woes, I can't even get current version 1.9.5 (59) to register. I even purchased a new license thinking that my original purchase was quite old. All I got was the same serial number as I purchased in 2004. So, I would not recommend it at all.

Paul, licenses don't expire so you old one is still valid. Please contact me (the dev) for a refund and instruction on how to apply your registration code to the newer version.

Safari Prairiefire started working for me again recently. Thanks for the reply, but there is no need for a refund. Thanks for continuing to support your application.

Very disappointed. Think I just wasted my money. It is not terribly well designed, is very slow in Mt. Lion.

I wrote once for help and then jogged the author's memory twice, over one month, regarding the fact that I had written for help. He promised to get back ASAP but never did.

Save your $ and consider another application.

Running OSX Lion (10.7.5) the "admin password" requirement for deleting duplicate bookmarks does not work. I am logged in as an administrative user AND I have enabled the "root" user, neither my password or the "root" user's password gets me past this authentication. Can't delete on 10.7.x???

something's broken.

Have to agree with TexasSon. The problem IS NOT FIXED. I took the author's word that it was and paid my money, but when I tried to delete my unwanted bookmarks, it froze up. When I eventually opened Safari, all my bookmarks were gone. Thankfully it does make a back up, but I also wasted a couple of hours. 0.9.8 may be a somewhat optimistic name, as it doesn't seem nearly ready to reach the 1.0 status.

Thanks for your comment! I am desperate to find anybody with this bug because neither I nor the betatesters can reproduce it since the upgrade to 0.9.8. Can you please email me? The email address is in the ReadMe file.

I've lost my bookmarks with every version of this app. I've run the program exactly as suggested. Each time it completes checking my bookmarks list, I select the bookmarks that are no long valid, and attempt to delete them, per the developers instructions. My original bookmarks are saved in my documents folder, just as he said they would, so this is no problem. What IS a problem is the 4 hours wasted running the app, and then being left with all the undesirable bookmarks still in my original bookmarks (saved to documents), because after selecting all the undesirable bookmarks in the check boxes, the program begins to delete them, but freezes, giving me the Apple "watch" - from which I have to force quit the program (after waiting 25 minutes just to give it plenty of time to come out of what looks like a freeze).

I love the idea of the app, have paid for it, and I suppose it's no big deal to loose the affordable $6 - but I Do mind losing so much of my time to this program.

It is NOT ready for prime time. I know, because I am a tech, who gets paid to trouble shoot program like this all day. And yes, I've tried it on more than one Mac, and trouble shot it to death! I'm not mad at the developer-just frustrated.
