Hi all,

some days ago i used the sync feature of firefox to synchronize bookmarks from all my pc's.

Now i have multiple duplicate bookmarks.

I followed the instructions so why this happened?

Which is the proper way to sync my bookmarks?

Maybe i am not telling it right. I would like my bookmarks to merge.Is this possible?

I hope i stated my question in a correct manner so someone could give me a heads up.

Thank you for your time reading this.

Regards, the_observer.

I first used sync between my pc and mobile device. In regards to bookmarks, on my mobile device, sync created a folder labled Desktop Bookmarks. And on my pc, there's a folder labeled Mobile Bookmarks. I now want to sync with another pc making 3 devices (2 Desktop, 1 Mobile). However, when I do that, it makes my bookmarks look exactly the same as my first pc. I don't want that. One PC is home, the other is work. I use different bookmarks at each place with the occasional overlap. I have it set up where the bookmarks I use most on each computer are on the toolbar. The others are in Bookmarks Menu. Obviously I use different bookmarks at home more often than at work and vice versa. Is there a way instead of distinguishing between Mobile Bookmarks and Desktop Book marks, that they can be separated by device? You already ask for each device name anyway.

Title says it. I'm getting duplicates of folders in bookmarks (top level, sub folders, sub sub folders, up to 10 duplicates now). I turned off synch, deleted all duplicates (took a few hours), then re-logged in and it synched and PUT ALL MY DUPLICATES BACK AGAIN.

I found one answer to one guy in the support site, but I don't understand all he did in the registry, etc etc.

Why can't it just work? Why can't I find a solution in their data base, others must have this problem too.

Anyway, anybody know how to solve this?

Thanks very much.

How do I delete my old, deleted, or rearranged bookmarks from the mozilla sync server so that they do not show up when syncing in the future?

When I clean up, rearrange, or delete my bookmarks to be more efficient or reduce clutter or simply cull, they are still on the mozilla sync server and will show up again if I sync. I want only my current bookmarks to sync. How do I tell the sync server to use what I currently have rather than what is archived? There should be a method to do this! i am grateful for the ability to sync when bookmarks are lost BUT IF I choose to NOT want all my old bookmarks to sync back how do I accomplish that? If they all sync back then that erases a great deal of work by users in some cases! Help?

I use firefox on two computers (iMac desktop and HP laptop). I have sync enabled for both, but recently, the order of items in the Bookmarks toolbar is different from one device to the other. If I reorder the Toolbar items the way I want on one device, the comeout vastly different on the other. If I then go to the second and reorder, that messes up the order on the original machine. This is a new bug...not serious, but very annoying. I'm used to seeing bookmarks items in a certain position, and it's annoying to have to hunt for them elsewhere in Bookmarks.

Anyone else have this problem, or have an idea whats up?

Thanks in advance.

All I could locate on your site is help getting bookmarks shared among multiple computers, this is the opposite of what I need. I have 2 comps and machine #2 keeps getting the bookmarks of machine #1. Please tell me how I can get the bookmarks from Windows on machine #2 imported into Firefox of machine #2? I made a different Sync account and uninstalled/reinstalled Firefox a number of times, checking that I wasn't synced each time, but my husband's bookmarks from machine #1 end up on machine #2 each time. Thank you.

I've used Firefox at various times in the past, but until recently was using Chrome. Since Quantum came out, I have made that my primary browser on all my machines - Windows 10, Mac, and an Android phone. On the Mac I imported my extensive collection of bookmarks (>55,000) from Chrome and turned on Firefox Sync. That worked at first, in that those bookmarks appeared on the PC. But some hours later they were replaced, on both Mac and PC (not sure about the phone), by a very old set of bookmarks the Sync system must have saved from one of the times I was using earlier versions of Firefox - they are mine, but definitely not from any of my current machines. Fortunately, I had backed up my current bookmarks, so I deleted all of the ancient ones and imported the current ones from that backup (which took forever, but let's not worry about that now). Once again, that worked for a while, but then the ancient set replaced them on both platforms. Again I deleted them and restored from my backup of the current ones, but yet again they've been replaced by the ancient ones.

Needless to say, this is annoying. How do I get it to stop? And more generally, is there some way I can set one of my machines as the master for sync purposes, so its bookmarks always get propagated to my other devices and they never get replaced by Sync?
