Hi, I have a probem. My PC broke down. I lost all my data. After i reinstaled Firefox on my pc and Connected it to Sync, i was not able to get my bookmarks back. I see them on my phone under - Bookmarks - Desktop Bookmarks, but i can' t see them on my PC. I tryed to sync them, but nothing. I remember that when this happened last time, i just loged in and got all my bookmarks back, but now i have lost half a day, but got nothing out of it....

You can install the About Sync extension in Firefox 72 and newer on desktop to check what data is stored on the Sync server via the about:sync page provided by this extension.

Close and restart Firefox to access the about:sync page added by this extension (see the about:about page for possible about pages).

Ok, It worked. I do see my Bookmarks there. But there is a problem.

It shows me : clientMissing: 172 problems

The following server records appear on the server but not on the client.

Maybe Firefox version is too new? Maybe i should try Older version. It also shows : Record toolbar has structural differences between local and server copies.
