1. Download the Foxmarks (https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/2410) add-on for firefox
2. Install it, sign up and run a back up of all your bookmarks*
3. Grab iPhone, go to my.foxmarks.com
5. Hit the + symbol, add to home page

Now you have a nice shiny button to press, where you can easily access all of your Firefox bookmarks :)
You are free brother! No more Safari syncing!
You can even create a mobile profile with Foxmarks so only the bookmarks you need on your phone show up.

And all for free!

*Foxmarks is also very handy for the basic act of backing up you bookmarks - I used to export an html file once a month and store it online :D No need for that anymore

I'm an avid Foxmarks user, and y'know, I've never ever bothered to look into this.

Thanks a bunch!

There's a native app on the iPhone called Links in a Blink that stores your Foxmarks bookmarks locally. It's faster than my.foxmarks.com and keeps track of your credentials so that you don't need to keep typing them to view your bookmarks.
