Reinstalled Firefox on PC, how do I import bookmarks from my sync account?


Firefox reinstalled on PC. Had inteded to re-load bookmarks from my firefox sync account. However, firefox only allows me to either "sync another device" or "create a new account."

I need to sync my browser, the browser on my PC.

I have my UN and PW to access Fireforx sync here https://account.services.mozilla.com/ This is not a problem. What I need is to download and install my bookmarks and history onto my browser.

Please help, I have been going around in circles for an hour and have work to do.

Thanks in advance

To be clear,

I do not need to sync my mbile device. That is synced and working. I need to sync the browser on my computer to my sync account. Why is there no simple way of doing this? Can I do this?

Thanks again
