Sharing TorPark's and PortableFirefox's bookmarks

Is there any way to use common bookmarks. If I define profile of TorPark in PortableFirefox.ini it uses all FF configuration of TorPark.

But I just want to share bookmarks between TorPark and PortableFirefox.

TorPark: http://torpark.nfshost.com/

If I create "user.js" and add following:

"user_pref("browser.bookmarks.file", "I:\\TorPark\\profile\\bookmarks.html");"

Then it works. But If I use relative path like:

"..\\TorPark\\profile\\bookmarks.html"

nothing happens.

Since this app is *portable* it should refuse absolute path and accept only relative ones.

What am I missing?

You can't

Paths in prefs.js aren't rewritten by the launcher. So, you can't share bookmarks between them. Both PFF and TorPark are expecting a single self-contained profile.

Sometimes, the impossible can become possible, if you're awesome!

Disagree

If I put portable firefox in the torpark's profile dir, then I can define in torpark's user.js path to portFF bookmarks.

Example:

Torpark
.|->docs
.|->firefox
.|->plugins
.|->tor
.|->profile
..|->PortableFirefox
...|->App
...|->Data
....|->Plugins
....|->Profile\*bookamrks.html*
...|->Other
..|help.html
..|PortableFirefox.exe
.|Torpark.exe

So, in TorPark\profile\user.js I add:
user_pref("browser.bookmarks.file", "PortableFireFox\\Data\\profile\\bookmarks.html");

---
|-> means directory structure.

That's some ugly hack. Having PortFF in profile directory of TorPark.
I want relative paths in user.js or I am missing something.

Thanks.

Mistake

So, in TorPark\profile\user.js I add:
user_pref("browser.bookmarks.file", "PortableFireFox\\Data\\profile\\bookmarks.html");

This doesn't work. I was too excited, but got same bookmarks.html file.

So....

Sharing bookmarks works just with absolute path.

If Torpark's and PortableFirefox's "user.js:" contain:

user_pref("browser.bookmarks.file", "I:\\bookmarks.html");

Then It's OK. But USB drives doesn't get same drive letter.
Is there any way to get drive name on which FF.exe is running?
Like: "driveletter:\\bookmarks.html"

Or, where can I find similar information?

Hm....
