Synchronised bookmarks are split to separate folders depending on device

I'm using Firefox Sync to synchronise bookmarks between my (Windows) desktop device and (iPhone) mobile device. The bookmarks are synched but kept in separate folders ("Desktop bookmarks" and "Mobile bookmarks"), rather than together. Is it possible in any way to have all bookmarks - both from my desktop device and my mobile device - synchronised in the same folder instead of separate folders depending on device?

After a firefox update to version v56.0.1 (64bit) on windows. I could not restore my previous sesssion and I have no bookmarks.

I searched my profile folder :

 > about:support > Profile Folder

=> .../User/xxx/AppData/Roaming/Mozilla/Firefox directory but there was only 1 new profile folder and no bookmarkbackups I also searched in .../User/xxx/AppData/local/Mozilla/Firefox

I logged into Firefox Sync and sync'd my browser but nothing was imported.

In the past I used xmarks and I recovered some bookmarks from there but they're more than 5 yrs old. I have firefox on my mobile phone and the bookmarks on the phone are correct, but I don't know how to transfer them to my desktop.
