    Hey,

    Just wonder if it is even possible to sync bookmarks in firefox with icloud. I sync my iphone, ipad and imac with icloud but they can not give me mac for work while I still want to access the bookmarks...

    Any solution?

    You could use BookMacster to sync the FF bookmarks with Safari, then iCloud would sync the Safari bookmarks. If I understand what you are trying to do, this would do the trick.

    That works and there are also some similiar workaround on windows. But I would prefer to have a direct sync between FF and icloud if possible.

    I don't think you will find such a thing. Apple seems to have the iCloud API for this sort of thing locked down.

    Maybe something using Dropbox would work for you?

    Firefox has it's own sync mechanism. Note that I haven't used it - I just know it's there.

    It's not a good idea to put personal stuff, especially account information on a work computer.

    I have seen various non-Apple apps that sync through iCloud. They are of course strict rules that the app developers have to follow.
