How can I 'download' the bookmarks from sync to 'another' computer?
Usually I'm using the Firefox 'sync' feature from my WIn10 desktop. Now I want to 'download' the stored bookmarks to a Linux desktop. Can I use the sync feature for that? (It appears that the bookmarks are not being 'downloaded / sync'ed). Any advise much appreciated.

Hi drobble, Bookmarks are usually one of the categories of data that Sync will synchronize by default. I don't know why it wouldn't, as long as bookmarks are working normally on both installations.
Could you make some backups on your Windows 10 system first just in case? I suggest using both formats:
- JSON-format Backup: Restore bookmarks from backup or move them to another computer
- HTML-format Export: Export Firefox bookmarks to an HTML file to back up or transfer bookmarks
If you can add and edit bookmarks on both installations, I think they should synchronize. Perhaps another support volunteer knows where to find troubleshooting messages related to Sync.
If you have to use the files to transfer your bookmarks:
- JSON-format Backup -- this will completely replace your Linux bookmarks: Restore bookmarks from backup or move them to another computer
- HTML-format Import -- this will add the imported bookmark either to the menu or under an "Imported Bookmarks" folder: Import Bookmarks from an HTML file
