hello all- When Sync job cycles, what is hierarchy determining which component version (Bookmarks, logins, etc) is applied to profiles on other computers?

Two computers, A and B. Bookmark file on A last revised two days ago. Bookmark file on B last revised 60 days ago. I need all profile components on B to match A. Essentially B is updated to A's version.

How does synch determine which version is the 'Master' used to overwrite the versions on other computers?

I saw in another thread that Synch uses latest modification date to set priority. This would seem to be the most logical criterion. But I want to be sure before cycling Sync.

(Spent 10 minutes searching threads before posting this question. There were some oblique references hinting at prioritization, but not an absolute statement describing prioritization.) thanks!

I still use the Quantum 96 portable along with Firefox ESR 52.9 for certain sites due to the superior customization and functionality of the latter via extensions that do not work on Quantum. However, I would like to sync the ESR passwords with Quantum, but I cannot login into Sync on ESR since "sign in" results in "Blocked by Content Security Policy."

Firefox sync restoring bookmarks from infrequently used devices

I have 3 desktops and 2 laptops with Firefox sync turned on. Occasionally the bookmarks on all devices are synced with an older version of bookmarks. I'm guessing it's from one of the laptops that hasn't been turned on in a few weeks and now is on. Is there not a way to prevent an old set of bookmarks from replacing a known 'good' set of bookmarks? Thankfully I have my bookmarks backup turned on and can restore them but would like to know if there is a solution to keeping bookmarks current and stable on all devices, even those devices that aren't regularly used.

I installed a new Windows on SSD drive, downloaded Firefox and signed into my account. I tried to sync my account and its been a month now and even after deleting, refreshing and reinstalling the Firefox, the sync has not worked. I have tons of data on my Firefox account so I will be enormously grateful if someone can help.

I have tried to press sync multiple times in settings panel of the Firefox and also checked about:config/sync logs.

Old laptop is nearly trash, need to transfer profile to new one.

But, it is not clear if Sync actually imports the old profile onto the new computer, creating a profile file.

Since I won't be using the old laptop, I don't need "syncing" between devices, I just need the old profile on the new computer. Is sync the best way to do this? thanks

I can send from iPhone to desktop no problem. But Desktop to iPhone never works. both are connected and synced. tried disconnecting and re-syncing, but still no. If i keep the page open on desktop i can find it in the Library on iPhone. but that's kinda long-winded when it should be much easier.

When I sign in to sync I lose most of my saved passwords

Since the end of August I have been fighting with Sync. I did a Firefox update on one of my laptops and it seems to have erased my saved logins. Since I have several computers it proceeded to sync the lack of passwords with all my other machines. I do have saved profile info from before the problem and so I pasted the profile info into the "new" firefox profile and all my passwords come back until it reconnects to sync and erases them back to where I started. I'm assuming that one of the machines I have is causing this. I've got 9 machines on the same sync. Any advice to help solve this would be appreciated. My bookmarks are fine and the usernames seem to be good. It's just the passwords. I saw a thread about AVG causing some problems but none of my machines are using AVG.

I'm trying to set up a new account using new@example.com but I keep getting a "Primary account email required" message.
