Lolu chungechunge lwavalwa lwabekwa kunqolobane. Uyacelwa ubuze umbuzo omusha uma udinga usizo.

My Firefox synced the "wrong way" and I need to recover my bookmarks.

Kuphostiwe

On Wednesday I opened Firefox on my WORK computer (PC) after a long hiatus and it recommended I refresh Firefox since I hadn't used it in so long. It said it would preserve all my bookmarks, etc. Did so, everything was fine.

Yesterday I logged on to Firefox on my HOME computer (Mac) and then about a minute later my very detailed Bookmarks toolbar started to change and is missing tons of bookmarks and looks completely/different disorganized. I logged onto Firefox sync hoping it would look like my WORK computer again but it did not.

Today I'm back on my WORK computer. I logged into sync since I guess the refresh on Wednesday had logged me out. And now my WORK computer looks like the same bookmark mess as my HOME computer. I wanted it to sync the other way around - make my HOME computer look like my WORK computer!

How can I get my bookmarks back and make that happen? Thank you!

Great to find so many backup copies of my bookmarks. I was not aware of this feature!

If I disconnect sync and restore from computor A. Reconnect sync. Does this mean that the restored bookmarks will appear in computor B after sync?
