Default How to transfer bookmarks to Seamonkey?

Hi,
Do anyone of you know any ways of transferring bookmarks from Firefox to Seamonkey and keep them synchronized if possible? I know that some people would ask why I'm using Seamonkey as Firefox is a much better choice. It's because the OS I'm using as an alternative for Windows is pre-installed with it. They did it to save space as Seamonkey is an all-in-one application. Also, does Firefox's add-on works with Seamonkey? I know that Seamonkey has a few add-ons but they seems to be for Firefox.

Seamonkey Add-ons: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/seamonkey/

You can export the bookmarks from Firefox to an HTML file. In Firefox 3.0.8, this can be done from:
Bookmarks ---> Organize Bookmarks ---> Import and Backup ---> Export HTML

You can then import that HTML bookmarks file in SeaMonkey.

The link for the add-ons is correct. They may seem like add-ons for Firefox, but they are infact for SeaMonkey too, as the heading on the page says: SeaMonkey Add-ons. So just go ahead and install them .

About synchronization of bookmarks, I don't think the Foxmarks add-on is available for SeaMonkey, otherwise it would have been quite easy. Will have to search if something else is available.

Thanks for the help Anupam. Also, the modified Firefox extensions were quite handy as there are quite a lot of extensions that I think are useful (in a way). About the HTML file thing, I didn't know you could do that with Firefox (probably because I never really bother to rearrange my bookmarks). Thanks for telling me those.

I have been a FF user for ages. I recently read some very very good reports about SM (particularly about speed and stability) so thought I would give it a try. Importing the bookmarks is very hit and miss and doesn't import them all, let alone put them in a good order. I thought (being Mozilla) it would just be a 5 minute job to configure it to my needs. Wrong. There is no help file as it is just forum supported so, after a couple of days poking around, I have decided to get rid of it. Shame, it looked so promising - or perhaps I am just too lazy.
