Some of the subfolders will not show bookmarks when I click on the folder containing the subfolder.

I have three computers. 27" iMac, 11" MacBook Air, 13" MacBook Pro. All my bookmarks are synced with Xmarks. On the iMAc and the MacBook Air, the bookmarks work as they should. The bookmark list drops down when I click on Bookmarks and all the subfolders within the main folders contain the bookmarks I have saved in them. On the MacBook Pro this is not the case for one of my folders. It contains about 10 or 12 subfolders and only 5 or 6 of the subfolders show bookmarks when highlighted.

I have tried uninstalling and reinstalling Firefox and then syncing bookmarks again but the problem still persists. I have checked file permissions and they are set as they should be.

I am now at a loss for what to do.

Sorry, that sounds like a question for Xmarks support. You aren't using both Xmarks and Firefox Sync, are you? We have had a number of support posting about problems similar to what you are seeing when using both.

No, I'm not using both Xmarks and FireFox Sync. I'll check with Xmarks support and see what they say.

Thanks for the rapid response.
