How to Sync Firefox Bookmarks With Your iPhone

By , Jan 7, 2010

multi-browser-syncHave you ever tried to sync your Firefox bookmarks with your iPhone? If so, you must have been very frustrated as it is not easy as it may sound. For some reason, Apple didn’t deem it necessary to add Firefox to the short list of browsers from which you can sync bookmarks to your iPhone.

Good news is there is a hack for that, using an extension called Xmarks. Bad news is it’s for Windows only (you will need IE) and it’s not very straightforward.

I could write a tutorial on how to sync your bookmarks from Firefox to iPhone’s Safari but Shawn0 has got it covered on his blog, so it would be a waste of time.

Check out Shawn0’s tutorial for detailed instructions.

Isn’t that a neat little trick?

    I would prefer a list of “Must have apps and tweaks”(from cydia and appstore) so I don’t need to write it over and over to my friends I convince to jb their iPhones 🙂

    I’ve been using this on my Mac for ages. It’s NOT Windows only.

    Just set Xmarks to sync Firefox and Safari, and away you go.
