Ubuntu / Linux news and application reviews.

The UbuntuOne client was updated yesterday in Ubuntu 10.04 Lucid Lynx and it can now sync your Firefox bookmarks:

ubuntuone sync firefox bookmarks - install extension

The first time you use it, you will have to click the "Install" button - which will install a Firefox addon and then you'll have to restart the UbuntuOne Preferences and Firefox and you can finally sync your bookmarks:

ubuntuone preferences dialog

There is also a new "Broadcast Messages Archives" sync service as you can see in the screenshot above. The "Contacts" option is also finally available (it used to be inactive up until yesterday's update in Lucid).

Also, the Account tab adds some links for account management:


but (at least for me) there are still issues with the link colors as you can see in the screenshot above.

Note: I couldn't test to see if the actual Firefox bookmarks sync actually works as I only have one computer, so if you try it out, please let us know how it worked for you, in the comments!
