I've recently bought a new laptop. On my old laptop I used Firefox and synced my bookmarks. Now I login on my new laptop and try to sync the bookmarks from my old laptop but nothing shows up... Please help.

Maybe use a removable USB drive to transfer the bookmarks if you aren't able to do this via Sync. Note that Sync isn't meant to be used as a backup device, but merely to Sync personal data between connected devices.

For the bookmarks you can use a recent compressed .jsonlz4 backup in the backups in the bookmarkbackups folder or create a backup yourself.

  • Bookmarks -> Show All Bookmarks -> Import & Backup -> Restore

On Mac, Import & Backup is the third (star shaped) button on the toolbar in the Library.

If you want to use a USB drive then see:

You can use the button on the "Help -> Troubleshooting Information" (about:support) page to go to the current Firefox profile folder or use the about:preferences page.
