Browser Tip | How to Save your Firefox Bookmarks Online

Backup Your Firefox Bookmarks Online
As shown in previous post "How to Save your Google Chrome Bookmarks Online". But I post it separately because Google Chrome and firefox have different way to install add-on plugin and synchronization. Firefox has also ability to backup your bookmarks online but you need to create an account to firefox. If you backup your bookmarks online using build in firefox account. you cannot direct restore your bookmarks to other browser eg. Google Chrome.

So we need an add-on to make it works for different browsers. in other words if you have two browser like Google chrome and firefox, it will synchronize each other. If you have new bookmark on your firefox it will automatically synchronize to your Google Chrome bookmarks. or if you have a new bookmark on your google chrome it will synchronize also to your firefox bookmarks.

So here we go. just follow the step by step tutorial with picture:
