I use firefox desktop (win 7) and firefox android. Both are v47.0
I have a firefox sync account.
I don't have paired devices.
I don't use firefox sync on my desktop but am signed into my android installation and previously had been too.
Prior to upgrading to marshmallow, I carefully manually synced firefox mobile. I then did a factory reset followed by the upgrade to marshmallow (official sony release for z3 compact).
I installed firefox mobile and signed into firefox sync.
I pressed sync accounts (in android settings / accounts) and it appeared to take a while (I had a good few bookmarks, etc). I was left with sense that it was downloading what I'd previously synced.
However, when I came to check my firefox android bookmarks, only the default ones were there. I tried to manually sync 2 or 3 times more. I tried signing out and in again. I even tried switching on auto sync in desperation (I don't do this normally because I want to control what/when I sync - having my android accounts on manual sync means that I can control this easily per-app).
I must stress that I did sync firefox android prior to wiping my phone.
I simply cannot seem to recover my mobile bookmarks that I presumed were saved in the cloud using the sync process on android.
What has happened to my bookmarks and how can I recover them?
