Sync Camino via Dropbox

This should not be done!

People just do not consider the security ramifications of anything these days. The contents of your browser folder can very likely contain enough information to completely bankrupt you and potentially much worse, if somebody else were to get at it. I wouldn't upload the contents of that directory to anyone else's computers (which is precisely what you are doing) unless it were in a highly encrypted disk image or other archive format---and then I would only do so if I had no other way to transfer the data.

If you have ever used a browser to buy something online, access your bank accounts, file your taxes, manage your health insurance, file government papers, and so on, you risk losing your identity by messing around like this.

A little convenience is not worth it.
