    Glubble - Still in Beta stages but it looks promising;

    New Firefox extension Glubble whitelists parent-approved web sites for kids and locks down the browser to create a child-friendly, safe browsing environment

    I try to keep my extensions to a minimum - as they add up to impacting load time.
    I find:
    scrapbook invaluable - records the page the way it was that day!
    foxmarks - good for synchronising bookmarks across multiple machines
    password exporter - ditto passwords
    Finjan & safecache & Phish tank - good for online protection

    Foxmarks - excellent - thanks for that!

    Anyone know of an extension that keeps all your extensions for use across multiple machines?

    Does anyone know of a Firefox extension for getting/storing bookmarks from an LDAP server? I could never bother with bookmarks before because I boot between differing OSes, and clearly windows profiles and UNIX profiles are two world apart, that was never feasible either. I've been relying on memory for the sites I frequent, but more times than not I find myself having to google to get the url again. I could probably whip something up in PHP in short time, but I couldn't really be bothered having to go to my intranet just to get at my bookmarks, but clearly using LDAP to sync bookmarks would be a better intergrated solution. Any ideas?

    Do you NEED LDAP syncing?

    Just that I posted http://lifehacker.com/software/hack-...ers-272113.php a few posts up. That any good for you?

    I prefer a local solution, FTP is a bad choice for this (as used with Foxmarks), LDAP is the more ideal solution, the main problem with that is the extension needs an LDAP client, which means it would need to be coded in C++ and ported between windows and unix.

    I suppose the intranet solution is looking to be the only feasible choice, could make an extension to interact with it by generating XML.

    Foxmarks now has a choice of ftp / http / https as choices nowadays - but is still a security risk as it is outside your network (for me this is acceptable - the passwords stay on my machine). (tried https and it works)

    I see from their FAQ you could run this on your own server http://www.foxcloud.com/wiki/Foxmark..._own_server.3F but I've not tried it

    Importantly, for me, it works well across Linux and Windows and doesn't require that the computers are on at the same time.

    if you get an XML import / export / synchronisation working it would good to hear about it (there is a similar project I want to do!) so ignore the comments above!

    No Squint is pretty useful if you've got a high res LCD monitor and you find most websites text to be too small.

    Too many unnecessary extensions can slow down your firefox browser...Well I'm sticking to just a few ones and going to FF 3
