No, that's independant, hit "P" in bookmark menu list (C-x r l) will
show your firefox bookmarks in bookmark interface.

No, you create directly a org file with your firefox bookmarks:
M-x bmkext-firefox2org

Yes they come in same order than what there is in bookmarks.html (the
firefox bookmarks).

I really don't know what you want to do exactly with org file, so i
provide a very basic function to make a file like:

,----
| * Firefox Bookmarks
| 
| ** My first bookmark
| ** My second bookmark
| ....
`----

Maybe you want to store also bookmarks coming from other browser (e.g
w3m), in this case, i will enhance function to support syncing specific
section. (e.g update Firefox section without modifying w3m section).


NB: As said in precedents posts, Firefox>3 store bookmarks in
places.sqlite.

To enable Firefox autosync places.sqlite with bookmarks.html, you have
to add to user.js:

,----
| user_pref("browser.bookmarks.autoExportHTML", true);
`----

or set this to true in about:config interface (double click).
