I refreshed the page and all the bookmarks were gone. I think the best thing at this point is to manually delete the duplicate bookmarks on one of my two machines, upload those to the xmarks site and download them to the other machine. Or should I uninstall xmarks after deleting the duplicates and reinstall it? But how do I uninstall it? Its not in the Windows Programs and Features list.
Xmarks is a browser extension, so you'll find it either under the extensions page in Chrome, or the Add-ons page in Firefox. I don't think removing it will help, but your suggestion may. Sign out of xmarks, and then manually delete the duplicates. Then sign into xmarks by running the Setup Wizard again, but this time when you get to the bookmarks selection choose to keep bookmarks on the computer, and disregard those on the server. That should upload your correct set of bookmarks to be able to sync (download the first time on other computers) to your other browsers/computers. One note when you are done fixing your current set I would suggest exporting them locally through the browser's bookmark manager. That way if it messes up again you can simply import the locally saved set instead of having to manually fix them all over again.
One extra note is xmarks is still having issues. Mine is currently showing a red box with a ? in it, so it's best to sign out now, and fix them, but don't do the Wizard for a while. Maybe keep checking this site, or email support.
