SYNC NIGHTMARE!!! I had to find a backup of my old settings to restore my add ons and bookmarks

So I had to find a backup...because as soon as I upgraded the NEW WTF SYNC it removed tons of add ons and messed up my bookmarks.

WE need a way to push and pull directly to a version that we know is the most accurate.

This new SYNC has no options!!!!!

I'm still not able to get them to sync..I had to revert to an OLD version of Firefox (28) and restore my profile from a backup. I used the old sync to resync my data..

My home computer now cannot PULL that data..even though I downgraded.

THIS NEW SYNC..does not make any sense..and doesn't recognize the other computer's settings!!!

These add-ons can be a great help by backing up and restoring Firefox

FEBE (Firefox Environment Backup Extension) {web link} FEBE allows you to quickly and easily backup your Firefox extensions, history, passwords, and more. In fact, it goes beyond just backing up -- It will actually rebuild your saved files individually into installable .xpi files. It will also make backup of files that you choose.
