In July, I first installed Sync on my PC (Windows 7), my smartphone and my tablet (both Android 4.2.2). It worked perfectly, with all bookmarks, history and tabs synchronized, and proved useful during holidays as I was only left with my Android devices.

I haven't been using Firefox much with my Android devices lately, but yesterday, when I checked their bookmarks, I realized they were out of sync with my PC's bookmarks.

I have been through all the tips offered on this site (unlinking, updating, re-linking...), with limited success : the history of the various devices in synchronized, but NOT the bookmarks.

I tried to create a new account with a new email address, but I am still waiting to receive the email for verification (although the email address works fine). Therefore I have deleted my 'old' account and re-created a new one, with the same email address.

Any clue as to how to synchronize the bookmarks?

I've created a sync account so that my laptop and desktop can share bookmarks, history, etc., but every time I launch FF, I get the yellow bar at the bottom of windows saying:

"Sync encountered an error while syncing: Incorrect account name or password. Sync will automatically retry this action."

I go into my sync preferences and manually log into sync. It seems fine. It tells me that syncing will begin.

Stuff syncs.

Then if I have to relaunch firefox, the same thing happens. Why is it not storing the password?

This happens on both laptop and desktop, which are Macs on Yosemite running Firefox 35.0.
