    Triple-click the text on the line below to the clipboard, then copy it to the Clipboard (command-C):

     

    ~/Library/Safari/Bookmarks.plist

     

    Quit Safari. Disable Safari synchronization in iCloud, if applicable.

     

    Select

     

    Go Go to Folder

     

    from the Finder menu bar. Paste into the text box that opens (command-V), then press return.

     

    A folder window should open with a file named "Bookmarks.plist" selected. Restore the file from a backup that predates the unwanted changes. If you disabled sync, re-enable it and test.
