Hi

I hope I can help.

Before you use Firefox Sync, you need to have two or more copies of Firefox (ideally on different devices) signed into your Firefox Account.

Devices will sync as you save and update bookmarks and user credentials, making the newest information available to other devices you have signed into Firefox Sync.

There is no "master" - Firefox Sync will ensure that all devices have the most recent copy of the data.

The most recent changes will be updated across all devices you have signed in.

Firefox Sync works best across multiple devices, it is not designed as an online backup service for one device.

You do not need to keep all devices connected all of the time to use Firefox Sync.

I hope that this helps.
