    Yep, it's easy.

    Go into the Bookmarks manager on your PC, export the bookmarks (it will generate an HTML file). Then go into the Bookmarks manager on your Mac and import them.
    Liquid and computers don't mix. It might seem simple, but we see an incredible amount of people post here about spills. Keep drinks and other liquids away from your expensive electronics!

    17" MacBook Pro -- 2.8 Ghz Unibody (mid 2009); MacBook Air -- 2.13 Ghz, 128 GB SSD; 32 GB iPhone 3Gs
    Faxmarks is a great tool
    I use foxmarks (http://www.foxmarks.com/) as a plug-in for firefox...it allows you to see all of your bookmarks on all of your computers. When you add one it synchronizes all your machines. It allows me to have all of my bookmarks at work and on my PC as well as my Mac.

    Another vote here for foxmarks. It's how I keep my MacBook and my Parallels' Windows XP Firefox install synced up.

    Wow, that's easy! One more question. When I put the file on my mac, where do I put it? I see the HD icon on the mac and when I open it I see a few different folders in there. Do I need to put it in one particular one in there?

    Open the browser on your Mac and use the Import Bookmarks from the menu.
    I cannot be held responsible for the things that come out of my mouth.
    In the Windows world, most everything folks don't understand is called a virus.

    Well, you can import the file from anywhere on your Mac, but generally it is stored in:

    <your home folder>/Library/Application Support/Firefox/Profiles/<your Firefox profile name>/bookmarks.html
