how to import bookmarks from one computer to another without diplicating already existing bookmarks bookmarks
i have two computers both have the same bookmarks but both have also bookmarks that only one or the other has i need to copy/import/add whatever only the bookmarks that are not existing on one computer but the standard import imports just whole pale of bookmarks even if it does to a different folder i have tired to do that manually but when i have copied the imported bookmarks the firefox does not stop pasting TO new folder if files are duplicates like windows does - firefox simply pastes how many copies you like of the same bookmark as many time as you want. that is bad i mean really bad! if somebody does not have any idea how to do it it seem that im maust just copy ALL bokkmark and then manually delete all duplicates and many it will be many many HOURS!
cheers folks Pawel

One thing you could do is to sync the computers. One thing. If a bookmark is on one system in folder A and the same is in folder B on the other system, there may be a copy.
