What does firefox sync do?

Posted

surely asked before. What exactly does firefox sync do? 1 - Will it wipe computer 2 and install all bookmarks and settings from computer 1? 2 - Will it give me all the different bookmarks on both computers? 3 - Will it offer me a choice of either of the above? BTW I want to sync my winxp and Ubuntu firefoxes. Can do manually, but will sync save me time or lose bookmarks I want to keep? Sorry, but cannot find answer to this in discussion.
