Sync Firefox Portable and Google Gears to Mac and use PC at work without Internet access...

I am curious how to successfully sync my Firefox Portable with Google Gears (Use Google Docs) to a Mac so that I can use it on a MCT in my patrol car which does not have internet access... I love Google Docs and was hoping there was a way to make this process seemless. I would also like to be able to Sync my Firefox Portable to a Windows XP machine at the station along with the Mac at home...

Is this possible or am I asking too much!

Thanks in advance for the great program!!!

Officer...

I can't help you on all your doubts because I'm not a Mac user, but I know for a fact that the add-on Foxmarks Bookmark Synchronizer is compatible with both Windows and Macs.

* Windows XP - Internet Explorer.
C:\Documents and Settings\%USERNAME%\Local Settings\Application Data\Google\Google Gears for Internet Explorer

Installing Google Gears with Portable Firefox...

This thread explains how to install Google Gears for Portable Firefox. From that post:

Simply copy the contents of [GEARS]/Firefox
to /FirefoxPortable/App/firefox/extensions/{000a9d1c-beef-4f90-9363-039d445309b8} where [GEARS] is the installation directory (c:/program files/google/google gears)
