what if i want to synchronise firefox on multiple computers ?

Posted

Google chrome has a feature, i log in with my google account, i click synchronize and it automaticly synchronizes all of my bookmarks, history, downloads info, themes, plugins and everything else on a new computer running google chrome every time i log in with my google account, they have an option even that if someone knows my google account password, it requires another password to unlock the sync proccess, as a suplimentary protection. Is there a buil it feature or plugin for firefox 5 that could help me do that on other computers, i have a Nokia N78 and it doesn't run firefox on it, i do have however a laptop computer, a desktop computer for home use and severeal PC's at work that I would like to sync them between each other with firefox.
