Why does firefox sync does not sync my bookmarks?
I've recently bought a new laptop. On my old laptop I used Firefox and synced my bookmarks. Now I login on my new laptop and try to sync the bookmarks from my old laptop but nothing shows up... Please help.
Additional System Details
- User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; Intel Mac OS X 10.14; rv:66.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/66.0
Maybe use a removable USB drive to transfer the bookmarks if you aren't able to do this via Sync. Note that Sync isn't meant to be used as a backup device, but merely to Sync personal data between connected devices.
For the bookmarks you can use a recent compressed .jsonlz4 backup in the backups in the bookmarkbackups folder or create a backup yourself.
- Bookmarks -> Show All Bookmarks -> Import & Backup -> Restore
On Mac, Import & Backup is the third (star shaped) button on the toolbar in the Library.
If you want to use a USB drive then see:
You can use the button on the "Help -> Troubleshooting Information" (about:support) page to go to the current Firefox profile folder or use the about:preferences page.
- Help -> Troubleshooting Information -> Profile Directory:
Windows: Show Folder; Linux: Open Directory; Mac: Show in Finder
