How to sync bookmarks FROM android TO desktop ?

Posted

I changed the operatingsystem on my laptop. Installed Firefox and activated sync. I lost all my boomarks by this. Making new bookmarks and sync these, I can open these bookmarks on another synced computer ( als a virigin ). On my Android device all "old" bookmarks are present. Tapping sync they do not appear on my desktop. How do I sync bookmarks from a Android device to a desktop ?

Hi

The way I would do this is to turn off and remove your Firefox Account from the desktop copy. Then (leave it ten minutes), on the Android device, force a sync and/or save a new bookmark.

Again leave it ten minutes then sign into the desktop copy of Firefox with your Firefox Account credentials.

You should now see the content synced across from your Android device.

I hope this helps.
