Bookmarks are not syncing

I have a new laptop, with two users, both with Firefox browsers and with their own Firefox account, both synced. I also have a desktop computer with both Firefox accounts.

On one account, Firefox syncs fine. All the bookmarks appear. On the other account, Firefox seems to sync, but the bookmarks don't appear. If I add a bookmark to the laptop account, it appears on the desktop. If I add a bookmark to the desktop account, it appears on the laptop, but still without the other bookmarks.

I have completely deleted Firefox, along with %appdata% on the laptop and reinstalled. Same situation, always the same account doesn't seem to sync the bookmarks.

I checked the logs - there are none.

Is there a fix for this?

I don't quite understand this!

Anyway, I just was able to solve my problem. It was a corrupted places.sqlite file in my desktop profile. I deleted the file and to force Firefox to make a new one. When it did, it fixed it. Now everything syncs the way it should.
