Linux & Mac computers not syncing bookmarks but show both FF sessions
If I display Firefox Accounts under sync in preferences, each computer shows the other's session, and each indicates the correct time of the other's sync. But the bookmarks are not being transferred between the two. The Linux computer (running Quantum 67.0) has not been used for awhile, but it has a big buildup of bookmarks that need to be transferred to the Mac (67.0.2). Both machines have probably 10's of thousands of bookmarks organized in a complex nested hierarchy.
The Mac and a second Mac (also 67.0.2) are syncing bookmarks with each other correctly.
