I use Firefox on macOS and Windows 10, Firefox Nightly on android, I save all bookmarks in the toolbar. Syncing between macOS and android is perfect, but not between macOS and Windows 10. If I add a bookmark in the folder, after syncing on another device, the new bookmark will be in the toolbar instead of the folder I selected. Also, all newly-added bookmarks are not in order.

Thanks in advanced!

If you have sync, and there is a problem anywhere, Shut Down Sync Immediately On All Devices to prevent the problem from spreading. Once the problem is fixed, perform the same repair on all computers/profiles before using sync again.
