For whatever reason, after multiple attempts, bookmarks and passwords sync but not the extensions.

Chosen solution

Believe it or not...

This a.m., created a new profile on Windows and everything synced! Then went over to a Linux distro setup, installed Firefox and everything synced there too as expected!

Go figure!

p.s. thank you for lending a helping hand!

Did you select add-ons in the sync options? Are you syncing from one version of Firefox to a different version?

All items are in line for sync as usual and i'm using latest stable version on Linux and Windows (but beta on Android).

The issue is (afaik) on the Linux side, where only bookmarks, history and passwords seem to be syncing.

Would have to remove from Windows to see if issue is present there.
