Hello, Can someone please tell me how I know when Sync is completed?

I have paired a device (smart phone Samsung)--it's been running good 10-minutes, yet on my Phone says sync is complete, yet none of the bookmarks are visible on my "Main" comuter.

Hello.

It is possible to "Sync now" in the desktop version when you go to Tools > Sync now You can check the status of the last timestamp of sync in the about:config page a and search for the last sync and there will be a timestamp there. Firefox Sync troubleshooting and tips for more detailed information.

Hi WhereIsMyMindAt, I don't use Sync myself, so I don't know where the Android bookmarks should appear.

In another thread, I saw a screen shot where a new "Mobile Bookmarks" folder appeared in the Library dialog (Ctrl+Shift+b). Can you find that?

I'm not aware of a way to *safely* make that folder more convenient to access. Perhaps the sidebar (Ctrl+b)?

(I say *safely* because I'm concerned that moving it into your regular bookmarks menu or bookmarks toolbar could break Sync in some weird way.)
