    Default Firefox. Two machines - one Profile.


    Yeah. Me again. I rock, I know... don't tell me.

    What I want to accomplish is to basically use two firefoxes: One inside
    a Virtual machine (VMware Workstation) and the other one on my native
    Suse system.
    Difficulty: Using ONLY one profile. If I save a bookmark in the linux
    firefox, it should be available in the Virtual machine - *and the other
    way around.*

    Difficult riddle, huh? ^^

    First you can share folders between host and guest(s), ideally you set
    up the users on both sides in the same way, i,e, order, they'd best have
    the same user-ID's
    After that you need to look for the file profiles.ini , it points to a
    "sdfuiuh91-default" folder. This is where everything is kept. The only
    thing you have to do is point to the same folder.

    Then again FF is quite tricky, won't allow running instances in both
    host and guest. You'll get a message that FF is already active...

    But the above should give you an idea of how it can be done. Can't say
    more, because I don't know what kind of host and guest you're talking.

    TAKE CARE: make copies of both FF-folders from your home....
