I've already imported bookmarks from chrome to firefox once before, about half a year ago on my desktop. However, recently, when I updated it to reflect the new data (through important from browser AND import through HTML file), and it doesn't update it on my desktop. I've tried restoring it, importing it again and again, restarting my computer, and the app. I've tinkered around with the settings multiple times. I've signed out and signed back in with my Firefox account, refreshed Firefox, and even uninstalled and redownloaded the app, yet the damn old bookmarks bar is still on my desktop app. On my phone when I go to desktop bookmarks, it'll show the new desktop apps data, but the computer which is what I want to change, still shows my old ones. What do I do? Is there anyway I can delete the old browser imported data so the only data is the new one? Because I've looked for that feature in settings and I don't see a way to do so.

I'm not sure what you are trying to achieve.

Do you want to restore the bookmarks via Sync or do you want to import an HTML backup you created earlier to do you want to use the import wizard to import the bookmarks from Google Chrome ?

You can delete places.sqlite in the profile folder and remove all backups in the bookmarkbackups folder (or rename this folder, so Firefox won't find it) or possible remove all bookmarks in the Bookmarks Manager (Library) by typing a colon (:) or a space on the search bar and delete all the bookmarks. Make sure you aren't connected to Sync as that may remove the bookmarks on all connected devices.
