Hey Owen, 
Thanks for your feedback and hints !

Well, if Foxmarks would work on the system with 8.04, 
this extra sync'ing wouldn't be necessary !! ;-)

With FF 3 I got complaint that Foxmark is meant for an elder FF.
Yes it's working with 7.10 and its FF-2 without problems.

So I installed FF-2 parallel to FF-3 in this 8.04 Beta to 
experience that all FF extensions aren't working on 8.04 
with both the FF's !!! ;-(

I hope Canonical's and Mozilly's are aware of these problems 
before they release this fatal combination !! ;-|

With changing and working on different systems and OS's 
Foxmark has become quite a vital tool ! ;-)

Cheers, svobi
