There seem to be a few options for syncing Firefox bookmarks, such as Firefox Sync and Xmarks. Are there any other services which might allow the user to sync only a single bookmark folder between computers? I would like this situation:
// Home computer bookmarks + Animals How to pet a rat How to feed a snake + Film The Opry House + Shared StackoverFlow SuperUser // Work computer bookmarks + Python PEP8 reference GIL reference + Shared StackoverFlow SuperUser
Firefox Sync has the limitation that one must sync all their bookmarks, i.e. the entire bookmarks feature will be identical on all synced computers. Thus, I cannot leave the
Animals folder only at home and the
Python folder only at work.
Xmarks has the limitation that all folders must be uploaded to the server. Thus, the server will have the
Shared folders and I can select which folders to download to which computer. This would not be a problem if I had a reasonable amount of bookmarks. However, I happen to have about 40,000 bookmarks at home and syncing them is beyond all reason. No, I cannot purge them: they are there for a reason!
Does there exist a Firefox add-on that will let the user select only certain folders for syncing?
There exist many bookmarks on the home computer that I don't want to sync to an external server. For purpose of discussion, let's assume some material which is legal where I reside but not legal where Xmarks servers are (such as links to download The Opry House which is out of copyright in most of the world, but still protected IP in the US).
Note that this question was originally asked on SuperUser but it was (rightly) closed there as off-topic as it is asking for a software (add-on) suggestion.
