Google Sync for Firefox 3 axed

I’ve installed Firefox 3 on one of my Mac’s, but I’ve been patiently waiting to install it on my main system and laptop. Why? Well for the past 3 years I have lived on Google Sync for Firefox. This is a extension that you install for Firefox that allows you to sync all of your bookmarks on mulitple machines and platforms. It’s awesome and it really works well. All of my bookmarks reside on there. And if I am on Safari and find a link, I’ll open up firefox and bookmark it there.
I’ve got .Mac and it provides the same ultility for Safari. But it doesn’t even come close to the functionality and power of Google Sync.
.Mac is a paid service and Google Sync is free. Well I read yesterday that Google is no longer going to support Sync. This really stinks, because if you are like me, bookmarking can make or break your work flow, your ability to learn new things and be able to access that information on multiple computers.
So now I am trying to get my .Mac account fixed and all cleaned up. So far the first few tries have been not too good.
So all you Firefox Google Sync users, you got till the end of the year for support on Firefox 2.
