    I'm wondering if it's possible to use the same bookmarks file for both
    Windows and Linux versions of Firefox. They aren't the same release,
    because I upgraded to 1.0 recently under Windows, and the Linux version
    I'm using is older (0.9, I think). But I have a drive that I can access
    from both platforms, and wonder if I can place the bookmarks file there
    so that updates and changes I make under linux will be available for the
    Windows version. Where does the bookmarks file typically reside, and
    how to I change the pointer?

    Email me at
    (Just remember to "cut the tail" before sending.)

  2. Shouldn't be a problem, the bookmarks file for both is bookmarks.html,
    in your profile folder. You can change where FF looks for the bookmarks
    file by typing about:config into your location bar. Right click and
    select New>>String. Name the pref browser.bookmarks.file. The value
    should be the location of the bookmarks.html that you want to use.
