I get the idea that the bookmarks in the Fx Browser are synced to an Firefox sync online destination. If correct, (1) what is that url for later access, (2) if the bookmarks are synced to that url are the bookmark folder structures retained intact just as the exist on the browsers bookmarks program.

If the is some sort of an "how to" page for Firefox sync, please provide that url also. win7 x64 running both firefox & chrome Thank you for your assistance in advance, Jim

I cleared the browsing history on my main computer with sync turned on. Then I went and set up a print server, installed firefox and signed into sync my account to access saved bookmarks for printing, and all the history that I had previously deleted was again loaded. How can I delete browsing history so it is also deleted from my account? This seems like a serious privacy concern not to be able to clear synced history, and hopefully there is a way aside from deleting one's account?

In quite an extensive search I can only find two pieces regarding my concern about firefox syncing (for a bit of simplicity I will also assume in this inquiry I am only talking about bookmarks). Could the experts out there kindly put some meat on my bones of uncertainty?

References: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1027527#answer-646401 How does FF sync across 3 open instances on 3 pc's? https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1000440 FF 29.0.1 Sync function - what does it actually do?

I can understand a perfect synchronization can take place if all devices are kept turned on all the time. That would mean real time (virtually) simultaneous syncing. For example, a deletion (of a bookmark) on one device would delete on the others and an addition on one would add that same bookmark to the other devices. If I have got that wrong then please correct me there. If I have got that correct then what happens when one or all devices are switched off and then at staggered times in the future switched on when changes may have been made to the bookmarks in different ways at different times on those different devices. From this answer given below I get the sensation that there is some kind of aggregation going on but it certainly is not clear to me. Below reference from: How does FF sync across 3 open instances on 3 pc's?? “Only on the first sync of the first device will everything overwrite the account in the cloud. Everything else will merge and all three will continue to be merged. What does this mean, if you delete on one, it will delete/resolve on another when it syncs if you have bookmarks selected to sync. Senario answer: The second pc will merge with the 1st and the first will be a mix of both.” In practical terms it is very inconvenient to have old deleted bookmarks be re-added to a device when wanting to say goodbye to that bookmark forever. Is there a way to retain what would be a master set of bookmarks on one device and update later those only on what are deemed secondary devices. I realize you can switch off the synchronization and you can also keep a profile copy or a full copy file of bookmarks and start the whole thing again by deleting the sync account and starting afresh. But my problem is that I continually forget to turn off the syncing on a device when I close down and then bingo before I know where I am an old deleted bookmark reappears by automatic syncing from another device because that bookmark is retained in the cloud. Or am I missing something obvious?

Very basic synching question about the FF synching add-on process after installation

Which set of data is considered the “base” data when synching with Firefox synch. Is it the data that is on the server, the local data of the first device you began synching with (a kind of master set of data), the local data on the latest device you connected to the server, the local data on the device where you last made a change of the data or perhaps something else entirely?

With Xmarks (bookmarking add-on) you have the very clear options per device that you connect with to a) merge the 2 sets of data (local and server) b) call the server to overwrite the local data or c) overwrite the server data with data from the local device.

Is there any similar possibility with FF synching?

I did a reset on my computer and when I reinstalled Firefox, all of my history, passwords, etc were gone (I was signed into sync before I did a reset. I thought the purpose of being signed into sync was so that when I log back in on the browser, all of my information will be restored. I have over three years of important information I need to get back.

In older versions of Firefox, each time the browser crashed (all the time), or if I closed it for some reason and then reopened it, my menu/add-on preferences would disappear and reset to the default.

Now with this new/latest version, it's continuing to happen, but this time, the icons disappear completely and the location window extends all the way to the right with only the horizontal 3-bar menu icon showing. No matter how many times I sign in and sync, it continues to happen. I am SO frustrated and tired of all the nonsense, I'm ready to trash it and try another browser.

And it was my understanding that syncing would also retain all your speed dial menus/URLs. Apparently, that wasn't the case because a hard-drive crash and reinstall of Windows last week showed me once that stuff goes, it's gone. Why is it not considered to be preferences that one can save into their profile by simply syncing??

Finally, is there ANY chance you guys are going to fix the compatibility issues with Flash?? SO tired of not being able to rely on this browser to allow me to watch movies or YouTube videos (which are now no longer playable in full-screen mode since it makes videos lag behind the sound).

And I have a 64-bit Windows 7 version on a Dell laptop.

Thanks.

Hi,

I clearly understood the sync application wrong - I hadn't had confidence about getting everything right, when I was forced to wipe out one of my laptops (crash), when it comes to saving everything from my profile (e.g. under win8 for some reason my profile folder was in 2 places at the same time which confused me).

But also, I wanted to be convenient (automation) and clearly understood sync functionality wrong (really? - I am honestly surprised that no application was developed that syncs my adding already existing information for the profile of the next device which you're using /or at least app like sync doesn't ask whether to do so, before wiping off all what was in the browses on this device already - really poorly thought).

So my question is: - I activated sync on one machine - I did the same on the other (older) hoping that the information from the newer machine will just pour into existing profile on the older and both (histories, bookmarks, passwords, etc. - passwords not so important, but history and bookmarks at least) will be merged. - now clearly I lost (at least for now) ALL what was in the browser on my older computer (bookmarks and history from an over of half a year of work)... ;-0

What do I do with that? How do I restore ALL this information? Is there ANY way?

It's REALLY important for me - as I am a researcher and this was a pool through which I would be going through in my everyday work.

Really bad surprise. I did all in agitation (of my computer suddenly crushing - so clerly I wasn;t thinking straight and carefuly enough - otherwise I would back up the old computer browser first, before applying sync, to check what it does without any harm; but I felt "so cool and happy" about what it can do potentially do - "merge all my content from all the computer browsers" what I assumed with pure certainty that this is what it's doing - even for a second I didn;t think that it would do anything else, and "why it would do anything else?"/which clearly I got wrong and now I am in BIG TROUBLE/.
