Different Bookmark Layouts Between Synced Devices?

I have a desktop that I use for personal use and a laptop that I will be using for school use. I have organized all my bookmarks just the way I like them for when I'm relaxing, but if I'm going to primarily doing schoolwork on this laptop, I would like to organize it differently. I have a bunch of bookmarks that are ever changing so I would like to continue to sync them, but doing so would also sync how I've laid them out.

I'm thinking I would like it to even be as simple as displaying a folder laid out like these bookmarks are (see image) but designate that bookmark folder differently for each device. I expect that would require something 3rd party, but I'm not exactly sure to what extent you can manipulate Firefox. I think plugins affect the browser instead of just the site like extensions, but I'm not sure.

Thanks in advance for any help you provide, even if it is just crushing my dreams.

Hi everyone, hopefully someone can help.

I have an issue with Firefox, I did read this aticle https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1273628, hoping it might solve my problem, but nothing in it helped.

I am running Windows 10 (all up to date) and Firefox (all up to date version 79). I have done a fresh install of Firefox and my addons. I have run a virus check Mcafee (full scan) and have run Malwarebytes and ADW etc. all come back clear.

My problem is with bandwidth. If I run Speedtest on Windows with no browser open, I get my full download speed 220 mbps. If I open Edge and run Speedtest I still get the same speed 220 mbps, if I open Firefox and run Speedtest, my download speed drops to 80 - 90 mbps (I get the same speed even if I load Firefox in safe mode). Can somebody help with why my browsing speed drops so much and is there something I can do to restore some speed. Thanks in advance.

Firefox extentions often ask for the authorization "Access your data for all websites". The description is "The extension can read the content of any webpage you visit as well as the data you enter there, e.g. B. Usernames and Passwords." Does this mean e.g. if I type in my bank account in a firefox browser window or a password for any other pge that this extension has access to this input/password??? Martin

Over the past 6 months or so, I've noticed that I occasionally get corrupt images where the images are replaced by semitransparent, randomly colored vertical lines, as seen in the provided screenshot. I am unable to reliably reproduce the issue, and it seems to happen somewhat randomly, but recently its started to occur more frequently.

I am on the latest version of Windows 10 Pro, and all of my drivers are up to date, to the best of my knowledge. I'm not entirely sure this is a Firefox-specific issue, and I seem to remember the same problem occurring in the default windows 10 photo viewing app, but I'm not certain about that, it might have just occurred when I opened my images for viewing in Firefox.

I appreciate any help or insight anyone can provide, thanks!

Firefox just started asking for a "master password", which I never established. When I try to uncheck "Use Master Password" it asks me to enter my non-existent password. Yes, I know it's now called "primary password" but I don't have one of those either. Running Windows 10, no AVG installed.
