I have seen programs that indicate the filetype of a link's url by displaying a small icon after the link.

I would like a small icon (a star?) to appear next to any links on a page that are already present in my huge bookmarks list.

I have an extension that detects duplicates and pops up a dialog if it I try to add a link that is already present, but it would be nice to know i already have it just by looking instead of finding out after taking the time to try and bookmark it.

This would be a cool Firefox extension. When I get around to making my first one, I'll probably do this. I've bookmarked this thread.

after going through 23 pages of the bookmarks category at addons.mozilla.org, i can say that this is a concept for a new extension..
