Only way to do it is to highlight in organize bookmarks and then delete one by one. I wish there was a better way.

To erase all at once, navigate to /Volumes/MacIntosh HD/Users/your user name/Library/Safari/

and delete the "bookmarks.plist" file. Note that deleting this file will remove all bookmarks. To selectively delete individual bookmarks use the method described by the previous post.

Regards.

That's a great tip. I just added that to my backup. Any idea where Firefox bookmarks reside?
