Sync: What do you do if you change your main device?

Posted

Hello

I assume that some time in the distant past I logged in from my main device to set up sync and then with my laptop and years later my mobile phone

The problem is that I changed my main device a few months ago and although I can log in to Firefox with it, I can't see how to name it as my main device.

I did manage to get my folders bookmarks onto my main device but since then I've added and now I need to sync this over to my laptop and mobile

But how to I make my new computer my main device?

Thanks

There is no 'main' or master device. Everything in the sync is equal. Any change on one is sent to all others in the sync.
