Bookmarks won't stay sorted/ordered the way I put them.

I've tried ordering them in the bookmark manager, doesn't make a difference. Tried signing out of other devices and doing it in one device, syncing then reconnecting. No difference.

I have 2 computers, 2 android devices.

At times the bookmarks seem to stay in order for a few hours. Other times it seems like it changes in a minute.

If you use Sync to sync the bookmarks between desktop and mobile devices then this might be causing it.

Does this still happen if you aren't connected to Sync ?

If you use Sync then best is to disconnect Sync temporarily during troubleshooting.

You can check for problems with the places.sqlite and favicons.sqlite files in the Firefox profile folder.

  • use "Verify Integrity" button on the "Help -> Troubleshooting Information" (about:support) page

In case errors are reported with "Verify Integrity" close and restart Firefox and retry.

If you use Sync then best is to reconnect one device at the time and wait for the initial Sync to finish before connecting another device once you have fixed the bookmarks.

I'll check out the links, thanks.

Yes I have all 4 devices sync'd. I'll have to think about what it would mean for me to disconnect the android devices.
