There are 4873 differences in 173mb backup and Backup taken after Importing . I used WinMerge.

1. I imported a HTML backup of 173mb into a new Firefox profile.

2. Waited for 10minutes.

3. Took a HTML backup it was of some 80mbs.

4. Restarted Firefox then again took a HTML backup it was of 61.1 MB.


There is something wrong with Importing. I imported the same 173mb HTML bookmark backup to Chrome and Firefox but Chrome got 23919 bookmarks and Firefox got only 23789 bookmarks. Chain is: Firefox-Export and Firefox-Import-Firefox-Export

Hello, I always have Sync turned on, on my Laptop (PC) and my iPhone. When I reinstalled Firefox, everything was synced except my bookmarks. I have all my bookmarks on my iPhone. How do I get my bookmarks back on my Laptop? Can I somehow export my bookmarks on my iPhone, which has Firefox mobile, and email them to myself on my Laptop? I would really appreciate it very much if anyone could assist me this this issue. Thank you.

Using Firefox Sync between two computers, is there a way to customize the look of the toolbar on one computer and not have it affect the other? In other words, save the same bookmarks but change their appearance or order on each browser?

Mobile bookmarks not showing as stared on desktop

Hi, I am having an issue with bookmarks and sync.

Steps followed: My mom has Firefox for Android (68.0), and a Windows 10 computer with Firefox (75.0). She had not used the computer in about a month. When opening the computer, I noticed that her desktop bookmarks did not sync with her mobile bookmarks (some folders she had renamed/deleted on her phone still appeared on her desktop). I tried to manually sync on the computer. Nothing. When I checked her mobile I noticed that sync was off on her mobile, so I turned it on. I tried to sync again on her computer, logged off her account on computer, logged in again, tried to sync, then restarted the computer, reopened Firefox, tried to sync but nothing. I connected to her Firefox account on my tablet, and her mobile bookmarks synced perfectly on my tablet. So I uninstalled Firefox on her computer completely (deleting the APPDATA Firefox file) and reinstalled it.

The problem now:

  1. when opening the bookmark menu on the computer, the "mobile bookmarks" folder does not show. I went into "about:config", searched for "mobi", but the option "browser.bookmarks.showMobileBookmarks" does not appear at all.
  2. when searching for a mobile bookmark in the address bar, Firefox finds the bookmark (I see the URL) but it does not show as stared and when I click on it, the blue star does not appear. But there is some kind of sync working apparently, since Firefox recognizes the URLs of sites that are bookmarked on mobile!

I am not sure what the issue is and would appreciate some help. Thanks very much for your time.
