Managing bookmarks in Firefox

I have Windows XP Professional installed and currently there are two user accounts on it. I use Mozilla Firefox as my primary web browser. I was wondering if there is a way I can 'force' Firefox to use the same bookmarks on both of the accounts.

I have a lot of bookmarks in the account which I use for regular work. But when I switch to the other account (Administrator), I see none of these bookmarks there.

Also is there a way to backup and restore bookmarks in Firefox?

Thanks in advance!

I currently use Firebird (the older version of firefox) and the favorites are stored in a .html file under Documents and Settings/usr/Application Data/Phoenix/Profiles/default/nbi56nee.slt/bookmarks.html

In my experience the path will be the same except for different usr and the last folder (nbi56nee.slt could be something else). So you can just take the file and copy it under another account.

goloap, thank you very much. That really helped.

Another question --- Is there a way to configure Firefox to use a single profile for all the different user accounts on a WinXP machine?

I'm using the latest version (Firefox 0.9), but--there is no such profile manager as described in that FAQ.
