Bookmarks going crazy

Ever since an update a few versions ago, my bookmarks have gone crazy. I have tried numerous times deleting and sorting them out but next time I opne firefox, it seems to 'sync' from some crazy old version and puts back in all the old bookmarks. They are now a total mess. I've tried unsyncing all but one computer and then deleted all the ones I didn't want but again, it still happens. Any thoughts on how and why? It's become intolerable now to the point where they are such a mess I just don't bother using them, which is really annoying because I used to use bookmarks all the time to stay organised. What happened?!

If you have sync, and there is a problem anywhere, Shut Down Sync Immediately On All Devices to prevent the problem from spreading. Once the problem is fixed, perform the same repair on all computers/profiles before using sync again.

You can change the password of the Firefox Sync Account to wipe all data stored on the sync server.
