Can Sync end up out of sync?

I have a spare computer I don't use frequently, but which has a synced Firefox installation on it.

I am concerned that as I add and remove bookmarks, it will get further behind and, when it is reconnected, will cause deleted bookmarks to reappear or new bookmarks to disappear. Alternately I'm concerned that the change queue might exceed some size and cause sync to generally fail across my devices. My tablet got "stuck in the past" once and couldn't send or receive new bookmarks despite Sync seemingly working and connected, so I'm worried that perhaps that's what happened already.

On the other hand, if I were to remove that device from Sync, what happens if I were to add it back to Sync?

...If I deleted its bookmarks during or after disconnecting it? I feel like this might cause the bookmarks on my other devices to get deleted too.

...If I don't delete its bookmarks? I feel like this might cause any bookmarks I deleted in the interim to reappear.

Also, is there a maximum size to Sync? I have several thousand bookmarks.

On June 16th 2022, I opened Firefox on my ipad and a bunch of tabs that *weren't mine* were loaded (in addition to my own open tabs). It was creepy and bizarre.

Out of caution, I closed the foreign tabs and changed my Firefox and Apple passwords. Then I resynced Firefox. Everything was fine for 3 days afterward.

Today, June 20th 2022, I opened Firefox on my ipad and 4 tabs *that are not mine* loaded, in addition to my open tabs. **I know these tabs aren't mine because they are about things that I have never heard of or searched for in my life and/or random places that aren't even in my state.

My significant other is as baffled as I am. My tech friends have never heard of this happening. Can anyone here figure out what's going on?

Hello, I had this issue on another computer and it never got resolved. When I downloaded Firefox on my last computer, the problem went away. However, on my new computer it is back. The passwords are showing saved. When I click remember me, the website never gets stored as remembering and I have to relog in every single time I start Firefox; on every website. There has to be a way to fix this. I have done everything the "help" section has said. What can I do because I do not want to go back to using Safari.
