Foxmarks works pretty well for bookmarks, though they don't encrypt your
data on their servers, so beware.

Weave is a new add-on (0.2 was just released) which is supported by
Mozilla itself and can handle bookmarks, cookies and several other
things. It does encrypt your data (in the client, so the server never
sees the plaintext). Unfortunately there are problems with the 64-bit
versions at the moment.
