I've read the articles that tell you how to sync between devices and I've done everything in them. Sync is on on both pc laptops, and I've pressed sync on both. I'm not sure what exactly has synced but I'm ultimately, trying to get my open windows with their tabs onto the new device. I'm sure there I a simple step I'm missing. Please help!

Different Bookmark Layouts Between Synced Devices?

I have a desktop that I use for personal use and a laptop that I will be using for school use. I have organized all my bookmarks just the way I like them for when I'm relaxing, but if I'm going to primarily doing schoolwork on this laptop, I would like to organize it differently. I have a bunch of bookmarks that are ever changing so I would like to continue to sync them, but doing so would also sync how I've laid them out.

I'm thinking I would like it to even be as simple as displaying a folder laid out like these bookmarks are (see image) but designate that bookmark folder differently for each device. I expect that would require something 3rd party, but I'm not exactly sure to what extent you can manipulate Firefox. I think plugins affect the browser instead of just the site like extensions, but I'm not sure.

Thanks in advance for any help you provide, even if it is just crushing my dreams.

  • Bulleted list itemAccount - both devices are connected. After exiting and entering again device names have changed, nothing else has changed.
  • Bulleted list itemPhone - PC not visible, "No Devices Connected".
  • Bulleted list itemPC - you can see the synchronized tabs (!from the phone). Sending a tab sends it "to nowhere".

Hello! Few minutes ago my laptop (Dell Inspiron 5479) crashed. That`s not a FFs fault. But after that all my sessions, bookmarks and (a lot of) tabs disappeared. Btw in search field I see suggestions from old profile, which I also once lost. How can I get access to those tabs? My current device name like tim-dell-FF-nigtly. Phantom device name is tim-manjaro-dell, but I even can`t see it in devices list. (Sorry for my English)

Unknown locations in Sync

I have two laptops and a mobile phone that are connected to Firefox and have sync operating. One the laptops shows a location of Wrexham which is approximately correct. The other shows a location of Boardman, OR, United States, a place some 6000 miles away and of which I have never heard. Googling the location gives me no useful information, other than it is a small town with no special characteristics. A screenshot of part of the Firefox Accounts page illustrates what the situation is.

The laptop stated as in Boardman has a location set within Windows. That is not Wrexhan but is only a few miles from there.

I have used iplocation.net which gives me the location of my ISP, in England.

I sometimes use a VPN (for work) and when being used iplocation.net gives a different English location which I think is the locaton of the ISP for my Employer.

I am unsure what is going on here nor do I know what implications there are for my security. I do not seem to be able to fix this.

Can anyone help, please?
