Hi, So I recently reset my windows PC, logged back into my firefox account on it and my bookmarks aren't coming back, it's showing my desktop's bookmarks on my android phone (from before when I reset my PC), but the bookmarks aren't being transferred back to the actual bookmark toolbar on my desktop. I could manually copy and paste all the bookmarks from my phone but I think this would take quite a while.

I tried "connect to another device" but when I press "Scan" on my phone, aim it at the QR code on my desktop, it just says "Did you use the system camera? You must pair from within a Firefox app." from within firefox on android.

I just want to be able to get my bookmarks back on my desktop.

Thanks.

What is the functional difference between bookmarks and collections

We now have both bookmarks and collections. Both seem to fill the same ecological niche, i.e. allow me to remember pages that I might want to visit again in the future.

What is the idea behind having both? When should you use bookmarks over collections? When should you use collections over booksmarks?

Currently running version 80.1.3. on Android. I Sync with my Desktop Firefox. This has always worked well in the past. Ever since the last 2 upgrades something strange is happening when I try to save a new bookmark to a Mobile bookmark subfolder. After finding a new site to bookmark I will tap the Star icon. The bookmark is saved to the root of the Mobile bookmark folder. I have subfolders in the Mobile bookmark folder and want to then move the just saved bookmark to one of those Mobile subfolders. Starting to edit the bookmark I see no way to select a Mobile bookmark subfolder. I can click Mobile folder and it will take me to the Desktop folder but not to any Mobile subfolders. I don't remember the Mobile version doing it before the last 2 upgrades but maybe my recollection on that is fuzzy. Is there some way I don't know about to expand the Mobile bookmark folder to display subfolders when moving a just saved bookmark?
