I have Firefox on my laptop (Win10 Pro) and on my Android phone; just bought a new office computer that is running Win11. My laptop has a long list of bookmarks and a dozen or more open tabs. I would like to get this same setup on the new computer. I thought I followed directions but since it does not work I guess I have missed something important.

Go to the menu in upper right, then the > next to my account, which brings up Manage Account, Syncing, several other items, then a list of tabs on my phone, another list of tabs on my laptop, and a third list of tabs on an old computer that no longer exists. It has been syncing for 2-3 hours without evident progress. I would like to delete the dead computer to avoid confusion but see no way to do it. Mainly I want to sync with the laptop or, failing that, import the bookmarks from it.

I also copied the FF profile from the old computer into the new one. The files and directory structures are identical but FF cannot read the profile. I do not know what to do about any of this.

I noticed that in the "Synced Tabs" on Firefox for Windows 10, there are duplicate devices listed down that are not listed in my "Connected Devices" page. I noticed this after I was fixing a bug on my Firefox Installation that ended with me uninstalling and re-installing it, then signing back into sync.

Essentially, the "Synced Tabs" it shows 2 different "devices" for the same laptop:

What is even stranger is that these Duplicates don't show up on my other Firefox devices such as my Phone and iPad, they only appear on my laptop's instance of Firefox.

hello all- When Sync job cycles, what is hierarchy determining which component version (Bookmarks, logins, etc) is applied to profiles on other computers?

Two computers, A and B. Bookmark file on A last revised two days ago. Bookmark file on B last revised 60 days ago. I need all profile components on B to match A. Essentially B is updated to A's version.

How does synch determine which version is the 'Master' used to overwrite the versions on other computers?

I saw in another thread that Synch uses latest modification date to set priority. This would seem to be the most logical criterion. But I want to be sure before cycling Sync.

(Spent 10 minutes searching threads before posting this question. There were some oblique references hinting at prioritization, but not an absolute statement describing prioritization.) thanks!
