    Since I can't find it, I can't delete it. The first thing I tried to do was
    to find it. NO LUCK!

    Make-my-baby likely won't be the name of the bookmark, but the target URL. It may have any name.

    A couple times in the past,Firefox bookmarks were flagged by Spybot,and could not be found in Firefox bookmarks manually by the people having the problem.
    One here:

    And AliceZ had a recurring problem with this:

    http://forums.spybot.info/showthread.php?t=52763
    http://forums.spybot.info/showthread.php?t=55277

    Why that was happening was never really resolved in any posts,that I can recall.
    Do you have a large amount of bookmarks in Firefox,or are there just a few in there?
    From the description here http://www.mywot.com/en/scorecard/make-my-baby.com make-my-baby is a site where two pictures are uploaded to see what the two peoples' baby might look like if they had one.Do you recall ever visiting/bookmarking a site like that,or perhaps another user on your computer visiting/bookmarking a site similar to that?

    Zenobia, in one of the threads you posted, spybotsandra states that SpyBot S&D detects but does not remove bookmarks. See post http://forums.spybot.info/showpost.p...32&postcount=2

    Further down in that same thread I outlined the method I used to remove an old URL to a domain that was taken over by rogues that SpyBot S&D alerted on during a scan. See post http://forums.spybot.info/showpost.p...83&postcount=5. At least for me, it worked and never returned.

    Yes,I know,I used that method to remove the NI,etc. bookmark after I was done messing around,and it never returned for me,either.

    I did not post those threads to say that Spybot was not removing bookmarks flagged.I'm well aware it didn't,because at the time I was adding the NI and Spywareinfo bookmarks to get Spybot to detect them so I could follow along.
    I posted the threads to show that in the past people were attempting to remove the bookmarks flagged by Spybot manually from their Firefox bookmarks,and they could not find them in their bookmarks to do so.

    One here:
    Whether it was user error or not was never found out for certain.I see I did get Spybot to detect a bookmark on the other account:

    Why Fake.Subscription Service is being detected baffles me.I've looked for it sideways,backwards,upside-down,and until my eyes crossed,and I don't see it listed anywhere in Spybot,anymore.

    In SpyBot S&D I went to Settings | Ignore Products, right clicked and exported to a text file. In searching the text file in EditPad Lite, I couldn't find Fake.Subscription Service line there, either. I see what you mean.
