The only problem

The only problem would be quickly locating the one you want when the list starts getting unwieldy long. But Firefox 3.x stores bookmarks in a database, so there should be little performance hit no matter how many sites you have bookmarked.

Get organized

You can make folders to reduce the list get organized. The folder names will better ID the type of websites they reflect, ;ole support, school, family, etc.. Of course you can store them as data to a media like a CD or flash drive the web addresses. Then access that media when required.

Not as important with Firefox

It's not as important with Firefox that you organize your bookmarks. You can just start typing the name of a site into the address bar, and it will automatically search your bookmarks for any matching entries. The more you type the more it refines the results. It's very much like the Spotlight feature Apple introduced with OS X 10.4 3-4 years ago.
