I use iCloud to sync browser bookmarks across all my computers and devices but now I want to use Firefox on Mac OS X El Capitan instead of Safari. How do I sync my Mac's Firefox bookmarks with iCloud?

Hi

Thank you for your question, but I am not sure we can help. Firefox Sync and iCloud are two distinct services and it is not possible to link them up.

It is possible to transfer your bookmarks from Safari to Firefox. This previous question should walk you through how to do this.

I hope this helps, but if not, please come back here and we can look into a different solution for you.
