Hey team.

I have Firefox running on OSX, Windows XP, and Windows Vista. I use Foxmarks to get my bookmarks synced across all my machines.

I am going to be administering a Citrix server soon, and sometimes I will be working inside Citrix too.

I do not particularly want to install Firefox on the server just to satiate my need for bookmark sync.

Does anyone know of a way to sync bookmarks to Internet Explorer on the server in this scenario?

I use del.icio.us to store all of my bookmarks and use the Firefox plugin to keep my bookmarks synced between my different Firefox browsers. I haven't used it myself but there is a similar plugin for IE, so you would just need to install the del.icio.us plugin for IE and your bookmarks would be synced there too.

IE plugin: http://del.icio.us/help/ie/extension
Firefox plugin: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/3615

That would work if you don't mind using the del.icio.us service. And if you didn't want to install the IE plugin on your Citrix server, then you could just export your bookmarks from del.icio.us every now and again.

Another solution that I just thought of would be to use the portable version of Firefox available at Portableapps.com - you should be able to install the Foxmarks plugin into the portable Firefox, and then you just need to copy the directory to your home drive and access it while on the Citrix server - no installation necessary. (and you get to avoid using IE too)

Firefox 3.0 - Portable edition: http://portableapps.com/apps/internet/firefox_portable

Hey thanks - I already use FF portable on my flash drive now and again, I hadnt considered using it as a permanent solution just for me on the server.

That probably totally solves my issue. Thanks!

Yeah - I use a lot of different apps from PortableApps.com while working on servers. Some of the useful ones are Firefox, 7-zip, Notepad++, and others. None need installing so I just have a folder in my home drive where I keep them. There's even a portable poker game you can play if you get bored on your Citrix server! :)
