Hi

I have had a look into this and Firefox Sync does not work with Safari. If you want to import bookmark from Safari, you will need to:

  1. In Safari, open the File menu and choose Export Bookmarks. Save bookmarks.html somewhere handy.
  2. In Firefox, open the Bookmarks menu and choose Show All Bookmarks.
  3. In the Library window, click the Import and Backup button and choose Import Bookmarks from HTML.

With regards to the Sync password issue, you wish to have a look at this guide.

I hope this helps, but if not, please come back here and we can look into a different solution for you.

I hate to disagree with you here about Sync not working with Safari. I have a new iPhone 7 with iOS 10 and all of a sudden my Firefox Bookmarks on the toolbars are the same as my Safari Bookmarks and I didn't do anything. When I deleted a bookmark on the task bar in Firefox and tapped Safari on the phone, the bookmarks I deleted on FF disappear from Safari. How do I stop this?
