When Firefox syncs my bookmarks to my phone, it deletes bookmarks without a name. How can I stop this?

I have a sizeable number of bookmarks saved in desktop Firefox. They're all saved in the bookmark toolbar. To save space there, I keep many of them nameless so the bookmark is only identifiable by its favicon.

When I downloaded the Firefox app on my Galaxy S8 and set up Sync, it brought over the bookmarks with names onto my phone. However, not only did it not sync my nameless bookmarks, it just deleted them outright. I no longer had my favicons in my bookmark toolbar on my PC.

I found out how to restore my bookmarks, but is there a way to get the nameless bookmarks to sync over to my phone as well? Or at least stop Sync from deleting them? Is this a bug of Sync?

Thanks!

Hi, no it is a bug created by you for your personal use of shortened URL's. Sync is doing what it is suppose to do.
