Hi I am encountering a strange issue. I have two firefox computers and syncing is active.

I am trying to restore a previous version of my bookmarks (using the bookmarks library, Import and backup menu, restore function). My problem is that at one of the following sync (ie within usually a couple of hours max) the previous set of bookmarks is systematically restored by sync.

I have un-registered / re-registered both computers, tried to use a different backups (from recent history or from a file export), tried to run sync immediately after the restore... nothing helps.

I activated log on success for sync. Apparently the restore is just ignored as I get this: Sync.Engine.Bookmarks.BookmarkSyncUtils DEBUG pushChanges: Processed change records: {"weak":0,"skipped":0,"updated":0} and later, suddenly the browser realises that lots of bookmarks are missing and cancels all the changes: " Sync.Engine.Bookmarks.BookmarkSyncUtils DEBUG pushChanges: Processed change records: {"weak":0,"skipped":0,"updated":4764} "

Has anyone faced the same issue? Is there a way to force a unidirectional push from the browser to the server? Thanks

PS: FF 85, one on Win10 and the other on MacOS Big Sur. Same behaviour on both machines. PPS: The machines are in two different locations. It is impossible for me to force the change simultaneously on both computers.
