    how do I transfer Firefox/Safari bookmarks. I want to put them on a second Mac that I'll keep at the office. This way, all I'll have to carry is my flash drive.

    I ultimately want to transfer iCal, Address Book and my bookmarks.

    Thanks.

    Safari - File - Export Bookmarks
    Address book - File - Backup address book
    iCal - File - Backup Database

    When doing this you should see the way to import them on your other mac.

    Firefox Not sure

    Firefox:

    Bookmarks>Organize Bookmarks

    Then File>Export

    Save/copy/drag the .html file that's generated to the Flash device.

    Plug device into second computer.

    Go to Organise bookmarks on the second computer
    File>import and import the .html file into the bookmarks folder there.

    Done.

    EDIT:

    Or just install the Foxmarks extension on both machines.
