I run Firefox on several desktops and android devices. I sync bookmarks between them. Recently a "Mobile Bookmarks" folder appeared in my Windows 10 desktop "Show All Bookmarks" menu. As far as I can tell it syncs bookmarks between android devices, but for Windows devices only syncs them to the Mobile Bookmarks folder. It is great to have this, but how does it work? Am I correct? I've searched Mozilla support and Firefox Help pages with the search term "mobile bookmarks," but the only slightly relevant hit was five months old and the best answer didn't explain how it worked.

Sorry, I don't have a "mobile" device, so I can't see that myself. But I can say that Firefox for Android and Firefox for iOS have their own Bookmarks Toolbar folders, which are kept separate from the "desktop" Firefox Toolbar folders; and Bookmarks Toolbar folders on the "desktop" devices are shared / the same on all "desktop" devices. iirc, that feature was added to Sync in April or May 2015 - i.e., "mobile" having separate BTB folders on the "desktop" Firefox installations. Prior to that change or new feature, the "mobile" devices used the same BTB bookmarks as "desktop" which could be overwhelming on a small screen or limit the number of bookmarks on the BTB on "desktop" devices.

Can you relate the bookmarks you see in the "Mobile Bookmarks" folder to those that you have on your Bookmarks Toolbar on the "mobile" device? Or are they different?

Thanks, ed-meister. Yes, the Mobile bookmarks are those on the mobile and the desktop bookmarks on the desktop. A really useful feature for exactly the reason you describe; desktop bookmarks were overwhelming on the small android screen on the older version of Firefox.

It would be helpful to others if this was documented in Firefox Help pages
