Firefox sync issue

Question

Bruinator    4

I am trying to sync my devices so that they are all the same. For some reason, I am not getting all of my bookmarks, just a few. Where are the bookmarks synced from because some have all of them and some dont. How can i solve this issue? thx

How do i make a fresh copy of synced options so they will be the same on all my devices. It appears the option it is currently getting is incorrect, hence the reason for a new set is needed.

Make sure you sync on the desktop and all accounts logged in and match on all devices as i had a similar problem with chrome and it turned out 1 device wasn't logged in so the sync was out of date.

where exactly does sync get the copy that replaces what is on all of our devices. I assume i need to disconnect all my devices except 1 so i can sync a correct copy of what i want synced then connect all my devices to it but i am not sure where it is stored.

If my question is not clear, hopefully this will help... Where is the sync image stored? I need to know where it is so i can replace the image that my devices my devices (PC, laptop and and android phone) get the image from. I believe i need to disconnect all my devices except one, on the connected device will make a new image to where that image is stored and then connect the other devices so i will get a corrected mirror image on all my devices? If i am wrong about that plz explain exactly how to accomplish what i am trying to do?

Not really the person to ask sorry, i have only had the issue i posted before on Chrome and that was fixed by signing in on my desktop browser which then synced correctly to my phone and tablet.

If you still want to use the latest Firefox then why don't you create a new profile and get it working that way?
