Windows 7: Sync bookmarks and favorites between Firefox and IE 8

Sync bookmarks and favorites between Firefox and IE 8

With the demise of Xmarks, what's the best way to sync bookmarks and favorites between Firefox and IE 8? I want to use my Firefox bookmarks as a master list and overwrite all the IE 8 favorites with it. I tried doing this manually, but I can't seem to paste the Firefox entries into the IE 8 favorites folder. Thanks.

Well, I just saw that Xmarks is apparently back now--was it ever gone? Not sure how or when that happened, but it suits my needs.

Bookmarks/Favorites Search Advice or App?
My Firefox/IE bookmarks/favorites have grown criminally large. What do the experts here say is the easiest way to locate a specific word or set of alpha-numeric characters in them? Sometimes it may be all I can recall of a certain 'bookmarked' web location. -thx
