I have a Firefox account in order to use the sync capabilities. After a sync between desktop and phone the desktop bookmarks are on my phone in an extra folder "desktop bookmarks" and vice versa the phone bookmarks are in folder "Mobile bookmarks" in my desktop Firefox. Is this normal behaviour? I would expect them in one common folder to have a seamless synching.

Best regards, Walter

Deleted Bookmarks from 5 years ago suddenly all restored

I'm totally desperate: all the bookmarks (which I deleted about 5 years ago) have been restored since I started to use my old laptop again, which I hadn't used in years - what can I do? I'm talking about hundreds of bookmarks which would take me days to check and delete - this was already an issue years ago but didn't occur for quite some time, but today it has reappeared. Please help to fix this right now, and also for this issue to not occur again - there has to be an option to define one computer as the main one with which all other secondary computers should be synced, and not the other way around...?

I started using Chrome/Brave in order to be able to use profiles because I did not find that feature in Firefox. I really try to get away from google, so I searched extensively and found out: profiles do indeed exist as a feature in Firefox. My question now is: why are there no buttons or easily accessible settings (for example in connection with sync-settings) for using profiles and why does one need to type in strange things in the address bar to access the feature and even to start another instance of firefox with another profile?

My use case is this: I have a private profile, one for my job and one for union stuff which I don't want to mix into my job profile. Yet, on my home computer I'd like to have all three profiles running simultaneously. Sometimes one or more profiled windows have been closed down and I need to open a new window with a specific profile. I understand that I need to open a tab, type "about:profiles" and then scroll through a page with large amounts of techy information on all profiles and press the last one of four buttons under that profile.

I'm quite tech-savvy and typing "about:profiles" is doable for me, but it seems absurd, given that the feature is not sci-fi and is well visually accessible in other browsers (Chrome and Brave: rightclick on profilesymbol and choose from simple list).

when i have more than 10 pages open the app starts crashing, won't let me go back as well and sometimes just reloads. There were also situations in which he grabbed me without me doing anything. I have about 4-5 extensions (in the photo). I'm using Samsung Galaxy S24, my previous was A52 (I had no problem with it)

This seems to be caused by Firefox. I don't have this problem with Edge, Chrome or Opera

I setup sync, the device paired. It said it was syncing and when finished the bookmarks folder looked totally different on my kindle fire. I can not find any of the recently added bookmarks on the kindle. The History and Open Tabs are still the same, I didn't have those selected for sync. I checked and one password that I knew was previously incorrect on the kindle got updated to the correct one from the desktop. But I am worried about any possible passwords that were only on the kindle or were correct on the kindle and incorrect on the desktop, based on the bookmarks I suspect those were lost also. I was worried about this and had tried to find the profile data on the kindle but no file manager helped, I couldn't find it anywhere. And there doesn't seem to be a way to access profile manager on android. I also poked around with adb with no success. I was hoping to make a backup before using sync but I gave up and did sync anyway. Is there anyway to recover this data?
