    It sounds like you've accidentally tagged a whole bunch of your bookmarks to automatically check for updates.

    The "lightning bold and number badge" over the icon indicate the number of your bookmarks that have been updated. Open the bookmarks window and Show Info as you go browse through. To disable automatic checking for a bookmark, simply set the menu next to "Check every ___" to Default. Then, open OmniWeb's preferences, click the bookmark icon, and set the default checking behavior to never.

    This could also explain why OmniWeb is getting slow and locking up; it's trying to access a bunch of sites and update the bookmark list.
