Both directions. With Mozilla sync, there is no 'master.' All selected data from all devices/profiles on the sync is shared. Any change on one is sent to all others in the sync.

FredMcD #answer-1107674 Both directions? 1. Should only sync or 2. First import backup then sync (obviously no changes in 1st pc from when backup is taken until full setup)
