How do I share bookmarks in firefox on 2 different computers?

I have a laptop with Widows 7 and a desktop with Windows XP. The computers are not in a shared network.

1. How do I add the bookmarks I make in Firefox, of my laptop, to the bookmarks list of FF in my desk top, and vise-versa?

2. Is it possible to share, or import and export the bookmarks between Firefox and Internet Explorer, of the same computer?

Thank you

In Firefox click on the bookmark icon choose Show All Bookmarks Click on Import and Backup and export bookmarks as HTML and save it somewhere then copy it to a USB drive and do the same on the other computer but choose Import Bookmarks as HTML, navigate to the file and import it. You can do the same in Internet Explorer by clicking on the Bookmark icon at the top right then click Add to Favorites then Import and Export choose Import from a file then tick favorites in the next window then next and again navigate to your HTML file and import it

I have got it between the Firefox browsers. I am not getting it between IE and Firefox. Could you clarify the steps a little more please? Just a little dumb, that's all!

thank you
