I'm so happy I could throw a chair!

I understand the value. But you really think that Google will not be offering all the features of Xmarks in the next 3-6 months? For free(in exchange for data mining your bookmarks and tracking the use of them of course.)
Fade away is the wrong term. This was overwhelmed by increasing volume of missing ad revenue for there own TVs. Can't kill the item that markets your own product.
Xmarks had a great idea but it doomed from the start. Syncing bookmarks isn't a product. It is a feature like spellcheck in a Word Processor. It can't stand alone and can't be protected from others doing the same thing. Thus it can't be marketed as the only place to get this feature. Google or Firefox will have it built in at some point because they can recreate it without paying the original creators for the idea. Had they patented the idea they might have had a chance. IF they could patent it. As it stands this never had a chance and anybody that pays now for it is a fool for the company will go bust.
Just call it OpenDocs.
OpenOffice.org never had good names. They should have dropped the
The Document Foundation is also a dumb name.
Right keep the system that cost us 14 lives and two expensive launch vehicles. Keep the system that never could do what is was originally advertised to do. It was a waste of money and resources that could have been better used for unmanned missions or even maned ones with better equipment and real goals.
Mod this guy up. There are lots of issues like this that keep me using a usb floppy drive. Some software still use floppies for license disks.
All your svchost belong to us.
It sounds to me like it is a corrupted profile. Firefox will hang if it's profile has gotten screwed up. Try using the profile manager to create a new profile and see if that loads properly.
