Bookmarks are showing up in recently bookmarked that I have NOT bookmarked! Am I hacked? Firefox is my browser where I have my bookmarks.

Do you have any sort of bookmark synchronization on? Maybe Firefox sync or xMarks? – Sudipta Chatterjee Jan 16 '13 at 7:22

What sort of bookmarks? Have you visited the page before? Are the pages full of ads or scams?

My guess is you accidentally hit ctrl+D instead of ctrl+F, which bookmarks pages.
