Use Xmarks To Sync Firefox Bookmarks To An iPhone Or iPod Touch

iPhones and iPod touch models can't sync with Firefox bookmarks, but you can regularly push your bookmarks to them on a Windows system. The trick involves the Xmarks sync service, Internet Explorer and a tiny system tray utility.

It's not quite automatic, but the way blogger Shawn0 details his own solution for synchronising his Firefox bookmarks to his iPod touch, it's much better than a manual import/export of HTML files. And, as Shawn found out, some of the previous Firefox-to-iPhone solutions don't work with the latest builds of Firefox (3.0 and newer, specifically). It's not tricky process, just systematic, and requires, at most, a right-click of a system tray utility (intended for Internet Explorer users of Xmarks) before you next sync your iPhone.

Synchronize Firefox bookmarks with an iPhone or iPod Touch on Windows [Yeah… Whatever]


    I gave up trying to sync my firefox bookmarks to my iphone. What I did in the end is switched to google bookmarks, available with their toolbar installable on both firefox and Internet Explorer. So I have common bookmarks on every browser on my PC, notebook & iMac (Firefox only on the Mac, not Safari). Then I use an iPhone app called LinksInABlink which syncs with your google bookmarks. You load that app, select the bookmark and it opens the browser to that site.
