When sync is turned on on my PC, the bookmarks sync with iPhone. As soon as I sign in and turn on sync from my laptop, the bookmarks on PC and laptop become way out of sync and very distorted in order of files and content of files I created in bookmarks. For example, I created a bookmark file on PC labeled "Restaurants" and in it there are 5 websites. The same info (file with 5 websites inside) shows up on my iPhone. When laptop is NOT signed into my Firefox it's fine and nothing changes. As soon as I sign in to Firefox account from laptop and sync (using the "Restaurant" file as example) the file is moved around in different order on PC and laptop and where there were originally 5 websites in the file, multiple copies of the same site appear in the folder. So the folder with 5 websites all of the sudden has 15 websites, which is 3 copies of each of the original 5. I just want ALL of the bookmarks to be synced and the same across all devices. Help?!
