How can I synchronise bookmarks between my work PC (admin-locked, no installations possible) and home MacBook - is portable Firefox the answer?

At work, I use a PC for which I do not have admin privileges - so I can't install anything on it. As a result, I use IE. At home, I use a MacBook with Firefox.
I'd like to painlessly synchronise the bookmarks I use on these two machines - ie, add a bookmark quickly to either machine and have it show up on the other machine, without constantly importing and exporting files.
I want to use something that sits in the sidebar - del.icio.us and other search-dependent web apps just aren't quick enough for me.
The only thing I can think of is using portable firefox from a flash drive at work, and the bookmarks sync extension.
However, I don't have any web-space or FTP server.
Also, does portable Firefox use on a daily basis wear out a flash drive quickly? And is it unsafe to have my passwords remembered by Firefox there?
