Can't log in
I've installed Firefox on a new device and I'm having trouble having Firefox sync its bookmarks with my main system [on my win10/pc]. I have logged in and it has no bookmarks. when I open bookmarks is [correctly -- as it did in the past] shows "bookmarks menu", "bookmarks toolbar" and "other bookmarks". None of them has any bookmarks in them. What am I forgetting about having FF sync its bookmarks? thanks

Thank you for your question about the Firefox Sync service.
It appears from your question, that you are using Firefox Sync as a back up service. This is not what Sync is designed to do. The Firefox Sync service takes a copy of the data you wish to include and transfers it to a second device (typically a mobile device such as a tablet or a telephone) running a copy of Firefox. The storage in between all attached devices is both temporary and fragile and is not stable enough to be (and is not designed as) a reliable backup service.
If you have a copy of your Firefox profile for desktop Firefox, you may be able to recover your bookmarks and other data. Please have a read of this article.
If you have a copy of your data on a mobile version of Firefox, please follow these instructions to connect it to Firefox Sync to copy your data.
