scripting in Mozilla Firefox to get updates in Bookmarks?


Hi,

I have many computers in my test network using Mozilla Firefox - some computers load Windows and others Linux varieties.

I have these computers using the same centralized Bookmarks file, v.g. Bookmarks.html, for which the most up-to-date version will always be deposited on a common public FTP site in the network.

Does Firefox offer any scripting facility for me to write a routine that will check for latest updates on the Bookmarks file (simply checking time stamp difference), and if found, make a call to the Bookmarks-Import routine in Firefox ?

Thnx

I use the Foxmarks extension for synchronizing my bookmarks myself. It's designed for use with a special bookmark service, but you can use your own FTP space instead.

I think there are one or two other synchronization extensions out there as well. Try searching the main Firefox extension site and the Extensions Mirror.
