My Firefox desktop bookmarks aren't syncing with the Firefox browser on my iPad and iPhone

Размещено

My Firefox desktop bookmarks (MacBook Pro running Yosemite) aren't syncing with the Firefox browser on my iPad 4th gen and iPhone 6s in Australia both running latest iOS. Any advice?

Thank you for your question.

This early version of Firefox for iOS does not have the ability to sync bookmarks yet. That feature is coming in a later version.

Here are some pointers on how you can access your favorite sites in the meantime: Bookmarks won't sync on Firefox for iOS.

Tip: You'll still be able to sync your history, passwords and open tabs in the current version.

That is strange since the release notes for the 1.1 version indicates "Added bookmark syncing with Firefox Accounts".

Yes there are plans for both way, however it will only sync from other devices to the IOS device. Not from the IOS device to others. In the meantime, save away and wait for whats to come.

Even the limited bookmark syncing to iOS FF doesn't work properly.

I'm using FF 1.2 on iOS and v42 on OS X, Windows and Linux all using FF Sync to sync bookmarks. On iOS only a subset of my complete set of bookmarks are copied down from my Sync account. Several folders of bookmarks are either completely empty on iOS FF or contain only a single bookmark (usually the bookmark that was most recently added to that folder which seems significant) while other folders contain all the bookmarks they should.

I've tried signing out and in again, resyncing and deleting and reinstalling FF on iOS, nothing works. It's always the same bookmarks in the same folders that are not downloaded.

whats the point in having firefox on my iphone if the 'sync' doesnt transfer the bookmarks i have saved on my macbook firefox. Surely the point is being able to access bookmarks on the go. Maybe i could just carry around my macbook all day in my pocket aswell as my iphone, and just delete the firefox ios app altogether..........

I've tried signing out and in again, resyncing and deleting and reinstalling FF on iOS, nothing works. It's always the same bookmarks in the same folders that are not downloaded.

I eventually tracked down the cause of this problem to a corrupted bookmarks file on one of my Windows machines that had apparently been uploaded to the Firefox cloud sync repository. It didn't affect my other OS X/Windows/Linux systems as the folders affected had been synced to them before the corruption had occurred, but for the iOS devices all bookmarks were being downloaded fresh from the (corrupt) cloud copies and so the folders with the corruption ended up either missing or only partially downloaded on iOS Firefox devices.

I fixed the problem by exporting a copy of the good bookmarks from my main OS X system to an HTML file and then deleting all the bookmarks from the bad Windows FF instance and then importing the exported HTML file to it from my OS X system. This cleared the problem and the iOS FF instances now synced all the bookmarks.

Since then I've had no issues with syncing bookmarks to FF on iOS, though I'm still waiting for the ability to add/modify/delete bookmarks on iOS and have them sync to the cloud and my other FF devices. But for now syncing to iOS FF is good enough.
