bookmarks in quantum in Windows 10 keep disappearing
Ever since Firefox Quantum, bookmarks keep disappearing after I import from html file. They stick for about a day or so, then disappear. Problem occurs weather sync is on or off. This problem does not occur on my Ubuntu devices, just Windows ! Also, this was not a problem on prior Firefox versions, just Quantum.

ssd21345 saidit seems we have to revert to the previous version of Firefox and import bookmarks then screw it install the new update. I spent 3 days working on preventing imported bookmarks from disappearance. It seems I have to move my firefox bookmarks back to chrome again. The Xmarks extension is glitchy so I cannot reliably port the bookmarks from chrome to firefox. So there is no reliable alternative way. The symptom of possible disappearance is if you trying to try to bookmark that same of the imported bookmark, you can bookmark it again but no blue star, hope it helps the developer to fix it. Currently, it's hard to make ppl to move from chrome to Firefox if this problem persists. The Bookmarks are our life.
Edge has a similar problem if you download the Fall Creators Update but not in the prior Windows Version 1703. I did a google search on "Edge loosing its favorites" and found a lot. If you turn off "Sync your favorites across devices" Edge will now hold its favorites in 1709. However, this setting is on by DEFAULT and is still on in windows 1703 and Edge does not loose its favorites only in 1709 you have to turn it off !! And why your favorites disappear is still a big mystery !! SO it seems the problem is sync related and I bet there is a hidden setting in Quantum that is causing this hardship !!!!!!!!! Like I said, a conspiracy to either sell pcs or just get you interested.. I really have better things to do !!!!!!!!!!
