which machine is primary

Kuphostiwe

I have sync configured in Firefox on multiple machines, there don't appear to be any options to determine which machine is primary. When I add a new machine with no bookmarks where does it get the sync information from? I did this recently and it deleted all the bookmarks on another machine because the new machine didn't have any bookmarks. I previously used a different bookmark syncing add-on that had settings for whether the local machine would be primary or the cloud/hosting server would be primary? Thanks for your help. Chris

With sync, there is no primary or master. Any changes on one member of sync is shared with all.

Umnikazi wombuzo

That's a great theory but when I added a new computer and browser without any bookmarks it deleted all the bookmarks on my old machine, luckily only one of them before I noticed. I was able to restore the bookmarks from the backup but it should not have happened in the first place.

Did you make sure that all connected devices have a unique computer name?

What you describe can happen if the names are the same or Firefox otherwise thinks that it is the same device.
