How can I sync/import/export bookmarks between different users on the same computer and both using the Firefox browser?

All help instructions are for importing or exporting bookmarks/favourites between different brands of browsers.

Chosen solution

Assuming each of those different users is using a different Firefox profile. You can use the built in Sync feature in Fx4. Click Setup Sync in the menu selections, set up an account, then have each user set up their profile to use that new Sync account. It will sync more than bookmarks; things like history, passwords, etc. So if it's only bookmarks you're concerned with, use Customize to only sync bookmarks when setting up each user. Good luck and have fun Syncing.

Many thanks twalker for your prompt and simplified explanation for resolving my problem which is much appreciated by this tarnished silver surfer. I will now arrange to download FX4 and follow your instructions.
