Firefox for iOS reinstall and sync

I had to reinstall Firefox for iOS on my iPad because of a major glitch. In the process, it deleted all my bookmarks. The bookmarks are still present on my iPhone, and I want to sync them all back to my iPad. To do so, I need to sign in with my iPhone. However, my concern is that the iPad will sync to the iPhone and erase all those bookmarks because it is the newer download. How do I make sure the sync goes from my iPhone to my iPad and not the other way around?

Hi

If you trigger a manual sync on the iPhone in the Firefox Sync settings, then sign into your Firefox Account on the iPad, that synced data from the iPhone should then sync to the iPad.

I hope that this helps.
