After re-reading the thread, I realized I was over simplifying your question — sorry. However, after reading your original question more carefully, I am left wondering what exactly it is you wish to accomplish (again, sorry if I am being dim-witted). It sounds like you are discussing a single computer running Qubes. It is not clear to me whether you want to synchronize bookmarks among instances of Firefox running on different appVMs (doing so would appear to compromise security as discussed elsewhere) or whether you just want to be able to back-up your bookmarks (possibly from multiple appVMs). Having just recently made the transition to Qubes, I had to migrate my data which included my bookmarks. I did not use Firefox's Sync., to do this, but simply backed up my bookmarks from my laptop computer. I then transferred the backup to my new desktop, Qubes computer. I copied them to the appVMs that I would be running Firefox on. After restoring the bookmarks, I deleted any non-relevant bookmarks from each appVM. For example, I deleted all but the banking/financial bookmarks from the "finances" appVM (and deleted those from every other appVM). I also made sure that remembering history, passwords, etc., was turned off for Firefox on every appVM. Also, which probably goes without saying, I turned off all reporting back to Mozilla. I have also decided on my backup strategy being to use Qubes backup to backup VMs (including template VMs) to an external USB drive (accepting there may be some slight USB-related exposure). So, the bottom line is, what do you really want to do? If it is just back-ups, then use either Firefox's bookmarks backup/restore or backup the relevant Qubes (or both). If you really want to synchronize bookmarks among your appVMs, I think you would be needlessly jeopardizing your security with no real gain. Personally I would recommend against doing this. -- You received this message because you are subscribed to the Google Groups "qubes-users" group.
