Hi there, I recently lost my 'recent bookmarks' and 'recent tags' from my bookmarks folder. I searched help on the forums and followed the advice to restore the smart bookmarks folder (going to about:config, double-clicking on the smartbookmarks link, setting the value to 0 and re-starting) and whilst this brought back the 'most visited' tag to the toolbar (which I was happy not to have) and the 'recent tags' to my bookmark menu (which again, I don't really want), it hasn't brought back 'recent bookmarks', which is the one I actually want!

If anyone can help, I'd be grateful.

Many thanks,

Anais

I am always logged into three separate Google/Gmail accounts simultaneously. Each is used for different projects/types of communication (e.g. work, personal, side-project). I want to use the share service, but when I click to share it doesn't give the option to choose which account to use. This makes the share service mostly useless. Could you please fix this? Thanks!

I've had a working Firefox sync for a little while. I decided that I want to use a different email address so I delete my account from computer and continue to make a new one. When asked to verify, I go to the link and I get a page that says Firefox accounts need JavaScript. I tried opening this link in different browsers and on my phone but same error. Can't get my account verified. Maybe its not important, but my first account was just a forwarding address to what I set my new account email. I.e. my old address was <name>@<domain>.com and my address is <name>@<domain>.ch, the .com forwards to the .CH. Maybe the confuses Firefox sync? And JavaScript is definitely not disabled. I checked aboutconfig.

Firefox seems to be working OK, in spite of the constant pop-up messages, which are annoying but nothing more. I'm wondering if it's safe just to enter Firefox.exe as an exception in Symantec Network Threat Protection, or would that leave me open to a hacker posing as Firefox ? I could just disable the Endpoint threat notification, but that would conceal real threats too.

In Firefox for my desktop (Linux Mint) I am able to enter in a person's name and tag them in a post or comment. For example, when I type in my wife's name it will tag her in the post/comment and alert her that I have mentioned her in a post/comment. I am also able to do this on Facebook's mobile site using Chrome for Android. Unfortunately this behavior doesn't happen in Firefox on my Android phone.

I thought it might be one of my add-ons (I am using Adblock Edge and Ghostery), but I uninstalled both of them and I am still experiencing the same behavior (or lack thereof).

Anyone know what might be causing this?

Sync is working between desktop browsers (bookmarks+history) but only syncing history to android. Need bookmarks!!!

Sync is working perfectly between FF 36.0 and Dev Ed 37.0a2 on Windows 7 and 36.0 on Windows 8.1 for Bookmarks + History It's refusing to sync anything except History to FF 36.0 on Android 5.0.2 (Nexus7) and FF 36.0 on Android 4.4.4 (Moto G)

It's probably been quite a few weeks since it was successful with the bookmarks too. I've purged lots of bookmarks to reduce numbers (currently @ 4918 ish) and removed ALL bookmarks from both android browsers. Previously, I've disconnected the devices from Sync - even reinstalled FF on them but the problem persists. Since that's no longer making a difference, I'd like to find an *actual* solution :)

Previously, it worked without issue (mostly) but now does nothing - no stall, hang or delays when syncing - it would seem (judging by the speed of the UI when syncing) that the data simply isn't being sent (or requested) from the server.

The synced bookmarks (desktop) still show *old* data in the Mobile Bookmarks folder from when they used to sync. This isn't updated when anything is added on either Android device (one bookmark on each as a test).

I've enabled desktop sync logs as suggested in other similar posts, and managed to get remote debugging of the Moto G up and running, and managed to get it logging (adb logcat) to the console. Tapped for Sync and it looks like I've got something of use.

Is it possible to provide the logs via PM or e-mail?

Would "reading list" items be tipping the bookmarks over the 5000 limit? (They're also not syncing, but I assume they're a BM "category".) Or a combination of pending unsynced items (from the other device) added to existing items hit the same limit? When the limit is hit, is *all* bookmark syncing simply aborted? (Seems to be a current symptom... i.e. no attempt made - see below)

"Interesting" looking bits logcat: I/FxAccounts( XXXX ) : firefox :: BrowserRepoSession :: Unable to extract bookmark from cursor. Record GUID MVNVrWILD_-T, parent null/-3 I/FxAccounts( XXXX ) : firefox :: ServerSyncStage :: Stage bookmarks received 0 and sent 9 records in 1.72 seconds.

Thanks for your time - keep up the good work!

Cheers, Paul
