Synching two computers

Thank you to Ultraviolet for responding to my question. I tried to find out if my laptop had the synch feature turned on but could not find a location for this. I clicked on synch sign in and received a message another user has signed on. Do you want to synch this device - or something similar to that. I should have written it down when I had the laptop turned on. I was not sure if I wanted to continue so I logged out. All of the bookmarks on the laptop are on the desktop except for one folder which has quite a few websites listed - websites I do not want to lose.

Would it be safe to continue on the laptop when the question comes up? Is the synching going from the laptop to the desktop? I am a senior and do not have a lot of computer tech knowledge.

When I checked my desktop, I found a section that told me that synch was on. I could not find something similar on the laptop.

I have a desktop using Windows 7 and a laptop using Windows 10.

For some reason, a folder containing several bookmarked websites disappeared from my desktop bookmark side panel. That folder is on my laptop so all is not lost.

My question is which computer should I be at when pressing the synch button? I want the folder containing the websites to be on my desktop as well as my laptop.

Hai my name is Z and im hoping to find some help from someone. I was sorta forced to reset my computer after it couldnt auto repair itself. Once it loaded back up and looked over everything that was deleted and everything that it kept and firefox was one, however i did notice that it didnt have the "old firefox data" folder like it has had when ive reset my computer by choice in the past. So i assume my bookmarks, themes, history, and most importantly my saved passwords are gone for good? This makes me not want to use Firefox anymore and i probably wont unless my stuff can be pulled back up because i really needed those passwords and bookmarks.

Firefox Sync popups and emails after syncing new device

Hi

This is not a bug, just more of a feature request. Every time when I sync an account to a new device, I got a popup to sync another device and afterwards I get a mail on how to complete my sync setup and sync another device. I'd have no problem with it, if this is my first device that I am trying to sync. But I have several devices with the sync enabled, I am syncing from these devices and Mozilla knows this as it has history of devices where I was signed in and it can see that there are data to be synced so apparently this is not the first device you are trying to sync. Can we have an option to dismiss these messages and popups forever?

Thanks

My laptop just came back from the shop after a hard drive crash and Ive had to reinstall everything. I just reinstalled firefox, signed in and synced but its not got any of my bookmarks, saved passwords/logins, add ons or history. I tried to do the Import and Restore but there is nothing in there. I checked the profiles, there are two, profile:defualt-release and profile:default. Neither have any bookmarks, saved logins etc. I've been using firefox for years and have synced it before and it worked then. I chose firefox specifically so that I could just restore all my stuff in the event of a crash but now I can't find any of it. Is there any other way to get all my saved stuff back? Any advice would be greatly appreiated! thanks.
