saving bookmarks to usb drive
« on: April 17, 2008, 05:37:34 pm »
I sometimes go between  four different machines in different places, but my main is this Vector laptop.  Is there a way to save to and retrieve a firefox file that loads from a usb that I can carry around that loads and updates my bookmarks and preferences and personal idiosyncrasies? That sure would be handy.....Anyone ever heard of such a thing other than using a usb with u3 and run firefox from that?  That would certainly work although my mac machine doesn't recognize my sandisc u3 so it wouldn't be perfect. 
ChemBook Laptop (it was free) 1.50 GHz 1 gig ram 1024x768 screen Ethernet-cable modem (working on wireless), Vector 5.9 Standard Gold, HD install, NO dual boot--windowsfree system!  prefer Xfce for now

Hi brock,

U can export your bookmarks into an html file and then save it to your usb, and then import it on the other pc.
in firefox go to bookmarks - organize bookmarks - file - export.

Save it, and put it on your usb.

To import its the same, but instead chose import.

hope this helps u.  :)

What about just using a Firefox extension such as Foxmarks Bookmarks Synchronizer?
