    I had been using Safari on my MacBook Pro for a good while before I downloaded Firefox.

    When I installed Firefox, it essentially asked (obviously not in this exact wording) if I wanted to carry over the same bookmarks I had set in Safari to use in Firefox. I did so.

    I again solely used Safari for a couple months without even touching Firefox, and set some new bookmarks in the Safari bookmark bar while doing so. I opened up Firefox tonight and the bookmarks aren't the same as Safari's. Essentially, they are the same as when I originally downloaded Firefox and transported the bookmarks over to the program.

    I want to re-sync the bookmarks but cannot figure out how. I browsed through Preferences a few times and couldn't find any help for this. Clicking the Firefox "Bookmarks" tab didn't lead me anywhere either.

    Any help with this would be great. :rolleyes:

    Open up FireFox. Go File>Import and follow the directions from there. :D

    Try the newly released Foxmarks for Safari. It works great to sync bookmarks between the two browers &/or multiple machines.
