I would like to set my desktop as my main Firefox PC for all other devices to sync to and not reinsert deleted bookmarks from other devices?

After synchronising my other devices, my main computer gets cluttered with bookmarks and passwords that I deleted or changed from the other devices that I synchronised.

Many thanks.

With sync, there is no master. All selected data is shared with all members of the sync.

Can you explain the problem better?


If you have sync, and there is a problem anywhere, Shut Down Sync Immediately On All Devices to prevent the problem from spreading. Once the problem is fixed, perform the same repair on all computers/profiles before using sync again.


[v57+] Places Maintenance is built into Firefox.

You will find Places Database near the bottom. Press the Verify Integrity button.
