    Does anyone know how to sync or copy the bookmarks from mozilla to safari automatically? Like when I bookmark a page in mozilla it will be automatically/instantaneously boomarked in Safari and vice-versa? If not does anyone know if you can import bookmarks post-installation of the web browsers?

    Thanks!

    Thanks for the link. I've been doing it manually for the longest time now. What a waste.

    Ever thought about using an online bookmarking site such as del.ico.us ? Not only can you access them from any browser, but from any computer as well. Plus, with delimport, you can have Spotlight index your del.icio.us account so you can use it to search through them

    Yeah, well, you have to have a .mac account for this to work. That's prolly a minority of users. What about those who don't have .mac? Another thing... the FF extension Bookmarks Syncronizer is seriously out of date... the new version doesn't work with FF 1.5 according to multiple comments, and in general seems to be buggy.

    The OP's question still stands. Actually, after giving Safari 7 months of browsing, and through repeated upgrades from 10.4.0 all the way to 10.4.7, I'm ready to throw in the towel and go Firefox. I like Safari very much, but it has some fatal problems for me: it crashes, and it hangs with the spinning beachball way too often. Plus it loads pages slower than Firefox. So, I've decided to switch. The only thing that keeps me on Safari now is that I still want to use it sometimes, and how do I sync the bookmarks... basically OP's question... and no, I don't have and don't want .mac.

    Google's Firefox browser sync works really well
