User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Linux x86_64; rv:37.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/37.0
Build ID: 20150415140819

Steps to reproduce:

I build up a personal structure of bookmarks with many folders and subfolders, accessable via the bookmark menu under the the address field. This will be successfull saved and transfered between 2 Windows PCs, but not to the linux maschine. Here are only the "most visited" bookmarks synced. My personal bookmark menu not. Its complete lost. The same with FF on Android. I recognize this behaviour since a couple of months and hope for fix, but never does, so i decide to file its as bug.

- on Windows always the newest FF via.
- on Android 5 always the newest availaible
- Linux on ubuntu always the newses and now debian with Iceweasel (V31) and Firefox (V37) 

Expected results:

Bookmark menu  should correct synced.
I forget, passwords und urls are sucessfull synced between Windows and Linux.

If you do have the same problem, it would be great to visit about:sync-log on the Linux desktop and upload any "error" logs that appear.
