Using Mac 10.6.8 & FF 48, how to set Mac as primary source of sync to ios devices?

Posted

I want to syn from Mac toward various ios devices, with no flow from ios back to Mac, so that Mac remains to primary bookmark data. With this arrangement, how could I get occasional new bookmarks and tabs from ios back to Mac? And also not create duplicates on Mac or ios devices. Thanks,

That is not possible. There is no master device with Sync. Data from all connected devices is uploaded to the Sync server and is merged to other connected devices.
