Today, we’ll be covering a Firefox extension called Foxmarks! I’ve been using it for a few weeks now and I absolutely love it. I’m so excited to share it with you, so let’s get right to it!

If Firefox is your main Web browser, you probably have it installed on all the computers you use regularly, right? However, a problem with your bookmarks may arise. For example, all of your bookmarks on computer A are not necessarily saved on computer B and computer C. And that’s when Foxmarks comes in handy. Foxmarks synchronizes your bookmarks so that you have all of them right at your fingertips! Here’s how to get it:

1.) Open up Firefox on your first computer and head on over to this Web site. Once you’re there, click on the big green Install Now button and follow the installation procedure.

2.) When Firefox reopens, the Foxmarks Setup Wizard will be displayed. Click Next.

3.) Now, you’ll be asked for your username and password. You’ll need to create one, so go ahead and click on the “Need to create a new account?” option.

4.) Just fill out the required information and then wait for your confirmation e-mail to arrive.

5.) Click the confirmation link in the e-mail that Foxmarks sent you.

6.) Then go back to the Setup Wizard and enter in your new information. Click Next when you’re finished.

7.) Foxmarks will then verify your account. Click OK, followed by Next.

8.) You will then be notified that your bookmarks are about to be uploaded. Go ahead and click Next.

9.) You’re done! Click the Finish button.

Okay, now I’ll show you how to add auxiliary computers to your Foxmarks account.

1.) Open Firefox on one of your other computers and once again, download Foxmarks from this Web site.

2.) After Firefox restarts, the Setup Wizard will open again. Just click Next.

3.) Now, type in your username and password and your account will then be verified. Click OK.

4.) Select Next. Now, you will be asked how you’d like to add the new bookmarks. I suggest the Merge option. That way, the bookmarks from both of your computers will be added to the server.

5.) Finally, click Finish.

You can add as many computers as you want to your account. Also, keep in mind that Foxmarks automatically synchronizes your new bookmarks when you shut down Firefox. Talk about convenient! Another great feature of Foxmarks is the ability to see your bookmarks from any computer anywhere in the world. Just head on over to and log in!

With all these great features, you might even feel guilty that you’re getting Foxmarks for free. Enjoy!
