    On Vista/Windows7:

    search for Users>[your name]>AppData>Roaming>Mozilla>Firefox>profiles

    You can just copy the entire folder marked "Firefox" and transplant that into the same place on the other PC.

    I don't know if this will work going from PC-->Mac. But PC-->PC works fine.

    On the Mac side, you click on the little house icon in finder:

    Finder>House icon>Library>Application Support>Firefox

    Let me know how it works out.

    You can export them to a single file, then import them into the mac. Much easier than trying to find where they are stored.

    No. On the PC, in Bookmarks there is an option to Export HTML (I'm not sure exactly where, I'm on my Mac). It will export all the links.

    On the Mac, you'll open Bookmarks, then Import HTML.

    I recommend you download the Xmarks addon and sync your bookmarks to the 'net. That way you can easily sync them into Firefox on any computer or OS.
