    Haven't looked at Firefox on Android as yet (but it's on the list <g>). The options that I know about to sync bookmarks on Firefox are:

    Firefox Sync
    XMarks

    These work in normal Firefox and would assume they would be supported on the Android now that FF is here. These don't need any special sync setting. XMarks will do Firefox on Linux and even does IE and Chrome (I'm not 100% sure of Chrome but think it does have support).

    Thanks for the replies :)

    But.... Shouldnt it work with 'Sync 3.0'??
    It allows you to choose the option?

    Surely with so many users of Android, someone is Syncing Firefox bookmarks.... Can anyone possibly assist?

    Hi. I had problems with sync DesireZ and firefox bookmarks.
    1. It will sync bookmarks from the device only to the HTC Bookmarks folder in FF.
    2. You must close all FF browser windows before syncing
    Hope that helps?
