How to restore bookmark backup when sync is active?

Hi I am encountering a strange issue. I have two firefox computers and syncing is active.

I am trying to restore a previous version of my bookmarks (using the bookmarks library, Import and backup menu, restore function). My problem is that at one of the following sync (ie within usually a couple of hours max) the previous set of bookmarks is systematically restored by sync.

I have un-registered / re-registered both computers, tried to use a different backups (from recent history or from a file export), tried to run sync immediately after the restore... nothing helps.

I activated log on success for sync. Apparently the restore is just ignored as I get this: Sync.Engine.Bookmarks.BookmarkSyncUtils DEBUG pushChanges: Processed change records: {"weak":0,"skipped":0,"updated":0} and later, suddenly the browser realises that lots of bookmarks are missing and cancels all the changes: " Sync.Engine.Bookmarks.BookmarkSyncUtils DEBUG pushChanges: Processed change records: {"weak":0,"skipped":0,"updated":4764} "

Has anyone faced the same issue? Is there a way to force a unidirectional push from the browser to the server? Thanks

PS: FF 85, one on Win10 and the other on MacOS Big Sur. Same behaviour on both machines. PPS: The machines are in two different locations. It is impossible for me to force the change simultaneously on both computers.

I've bought a new Win10 PC to (eventually) replace my old one.

I've signed up for a Mozilla account on the old PC, signed into it from the new PC and the favourites, history etc have come across ok onto the new one. The saved logons however haven't.

How can I get my saved logons to sync across from the old PC to the new one?

I have two desktops that we use on a daily basis, both have Firefox sync turned on to sync bookmarks, addresses, add-ons and settings. I also have a laptop that I use sporadically, maybe once every two-three weeks, or longer. It also has the same sync settings. Here is the issue I'm having with sync. When either desktop has new bookmarks added/removed they always sync perfectly to each other (desktops). But, if I turn my laptop on after a couple of weeks of being off, then it always syncs the 'old' bookmarks (up) and then the desktops get synced (down) with old bookmarks. How can I prevent this from happening and does anyone know why, in this scenario, it is happening? I've checked various places in settings and cannot find anything obvious to fix this. All devices, laptops & desktops, are very regularly updated with the most current firefox version, except on occasion if the laptop has been off for a couple of weeks or more, but once it's turned on, it updates.

I want to sync my desktop and mobile login lists. I have Firefox 95.2.0 (2012-12-16) on my phone. And I have 95.0.2 on my desktop. Everything on mobile marked to synchronize. I've even manually clicked "sync"... Phone says everything was uploaded. But nothing is in the list on the desktop. When I tries to add a "new device" in preferences on desktop, I expect it to give me QR code. But it gives me instantly "Synchronization failed" instead. I'm tired to open list on phone and then type everything in on desktop. How can I fix the issue?

I still use the Quantum 96 portable along with Firefox ESR 52.9 for certain sites due to the superior customization and functionality of the latter via extensions that do not work on Quantum.

I would prefer to be using Firefox rather than Google Chrome, but, my devices when all being logged in with the same account will not all sync as they should be. They will also be synced, but then they would loose their connection with the other ones. The sync should be that when I would simply log into the browser that it would automatically sync using the login information the same easy way it is done in Chrome. I have kept using Chrome, because of the fact that the sync is able to work across all devices simply by logging in for the sync to work & it will work properly to where all of the browsers that would be logged in would be synced, no issues whatsoever. How can I actually login to the sync on everything with there not being any issues of any kind across all devices?

I have 3 desktops and 2 laptops with Firefox sync turned on. Occasionally the bookmarks on all devices are synced with an older version of bookmarks. I'm guessing it's from one of the laptops that hasn't been turned on in a few weeks and now is on. Is there not a way to prevent an old set of bookmarks from replacing a known 'good' set of bookmarks? Thankfully I have my bookmarks backup turned on and can restore them but would like to know if there is a solution to keeping bookmarks current and stable on all devices, even those devices that aren't regularly used.

Hi, I have an old computer which I have Firefox on with tons of stuff...after getting a new laptop and syncing the two I want to now delete Firefox from the old laptop and use it for other things and still have all the old stuff on the new laptop. I thought the server keeps everything and if I sign out the old laptop that whatever was saved in to the new laptop stays. However, on the new laptop after signing off the old one from sync I don't see the tabs anymore. It makes sense because there is nothing to sync but how do I do what I want then? Many thanks for your assistance. Do I have to "send" 1000 tabs from old to new? Isn't the server maintaining the tabs/history even after I sign off the old laptop from sync?

Many thanks in advance for your assitance.

I installed Firefox on a new device and initiated a sync for multi-account containers - it promptly synced in the wrong direction. It eliminated all customization from what should have been the source (the existing device), overwriting it with the default settings of a first-time installation. I was quite surprised.

This leads me to a couple of questions.

1. Is there a sync version history or any way of rolling back a sync? 2. Is there a way to explicitly choose the sync direction?

Quite honestly it is very confusing that there is no reference whatsoever to which way an initial sync will go. I was hesitant to risk this, decided to trust it knew what to do (even though it didn't give me any indication that it did) and lost my gamble.

Firefox knows the device names, so can I suggest some basic reassuring UX be inserted into this process with something like "Initiate sync from X-DEVICE-FIREFOX to Y-DEVICE-FIREFOX?". A bit of clarity would be helpful here, as well as a way to roll back a syncing mistake instead of just having to gamble possibly losing hard-won customization with no going back.

Or have I completely stumbled past some obvious place where everything I'm requesting exists and is accessible already?

Thanks for any help anyone can provide.
