So I am trying to transfer my Firefox 53 bookmarks from one PC (Windows 10) to another (Ubuntu 17.04) via the "json" Filetype. The first problem was that the Restoring from file always produced a error message of a script not working (disabling addons/plugins, aswell as giving the script more time by changing the config value from 10 to 20 did not help), I clicked "continue" and it seemed to finish correctly.
To check whether the Transfer was corrupted by the script error, I made a backup file (again .json) of the new installation.
Problem: The original Backup File was 2,5MB big, the "test-backup" is 2,4MB big!!!
I thought maybe Ubuntu is the problem, so I made a fresh installation of Windows 10+Firefox on another partition. With this Win10 installation i had no script-error during bookmarks-installation.
BUT: A test-backup of this third installation was only 2,3MB big!
So my bookmark backups keep getting smaller eventhough they should have identical contents!
Where is the fault?
