I have nearly 5000 bookmarks on PC Firefox in a complex folder structure. They appear to sync with Firefox Android, but minus the folders, so completely unusable. Are there plans to add folder support on Android? Ironically, exporting them to Chrome on the PC syncs them perfectly to Chrome Android.

Quiet and useless limit of 5000 bookmarks to sync in Android?

1. Why this limit is so "quiet"? One day my "Desktop bookmarks" folder just has been disapeared in all my Android devices. Without any warning or error message. Moreover … (read more)

1. Why this limit is so "quiet"? One day my "Desktop bookmarks" folder just has been disapeared in all my Android devices. Without any warning or error message. Moreover also "Mobile bookmarks" are not syncing between Android devices. 2. Why this limit is not clearly described in any documentation about the "Sync" service? For me this is a serious limitation of usability of this service (and Firefox on Android at all). 3. The synchronization betweend desktop Windows devices is still working correctly, so I think that this limit is specific for the Android. Do you plan to remove this limit on this platform? 4. If this is system limit do you plan to use sharding or something to Avoid this?

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
