  1. Funny – I was searching for such a program. Could not get Weaver to work…. and during surfing through my entrecards – found your (this!) post…

    Got it – got an account = now I have to check from another comp and synchronize = but seems to be working smoothly !!

  2. Sjeltur: I tested it on another computer and it worked perfectly. I merged the bookmarks from my Foxmarks account with the browser on another computer. This is a great service for transporting bookmarks from one computer to another.

  3. Hi there – it most certainly works perfect. Got it now running on my main comp at home and my work laptop…
    Reorganized my whole bookmark part via my login of Foxmarks…. synchronized – and YES = all nicely organized !!
    Thanx again !

  4. Thanks for the great post about Foxmarks! I wanted to let you know that we also have a solution for the ‘accidental removal of a bookmark’ that you mentioned.

    You can always go to, log in to your account, and go to Tools -> Explore & Restore Old Bookmarks… From here you can view previous backups of your bookmarks, find and re-bookmark that deleted link, or even restore an entire set of bookmarks.

    Hope that helps. -JJ [from Foxmarks]
