Hello, I always have Sync turned on, on my Laptop (PC) and my iPhone. When I reinstalled Firefox, everything was synced except my bookmarks. I have all my bookmarks on my iPhone. How do I get my bookmarks back on my Laptop? Can I somehow export my bookmarks on my iPhone, which has Firefox mobile, and email them to myself on my Laptop? I would really appreciate it very much if anyone could assist me this this issue. Thank you.

There are 4873 differences in 173mb backup and Backup taken after Importing . I used WinMerge.

1. I imported a HTML backup of 173mb into a new Firefox profile.

2. Waited for 10minutes.

3. Took a HTML backup it was of some 80mbs.

4. Restarted Firefox then again took a HTML backup it was of 61.1 MB.


There is something wrong with Importing. I imported the same 173mb HTML bookmark backup to Chrome and Firefox but Chrome got 23919 bookmarks and Firefox got only 23789 bookmarks. Chain is: Firefox-Export and Firefox-Import-Firefox-Export
