By far the easiest way to do this is to use Firefox as your web browser everywhere, and then use Firefox's built in sync functionality. This will (optionally) sync not just your Bookmarks, but also your History, your Saved Passwords and your Preferences, and let you see the recent tabs you've had open on different machines. Start by installing Firefox for ...

Besides the points mentioned in Lie Ryan's answer, there is one big issue people tend to underestimate: Drivers. Remember Windows 95? Most people remember it as a bad and unstable OS. Why was it unstable? Because the drivers came in the beginning not from Microsoft but from the hardware manufacturers and some (most?) of them where of poor quality, crashing ...

The first problem is space. Most phone until recently have too little storage space to contain the entire generic kernel and android framework. A compounding issue is that phone hardware is generally more variant and less standardized than PC hardware, which can be unavoidable due to the limited space.

I don't see a FireFox extension that bring bookmarks to your phone permanently. There are a few suggestions in this question but they are designed more for sending links on a one-time basis.

The short answer is, you can't. Unfortunately. The Firefox for mobile (Android) is rather limited in its bookmarks capabilities. I stumbled upon your question as I was trying to find out if the tagging of bookmarks is nowadays possible. .. It isn't.
