1. Sign in to Sync with a new or existing Firefox Account on Windows desktop
2. Add a bookmark
3. Set the bookmark's keyword and trigger a sync
4. Sign in to Sync on a Linux desktop
5. Trigger a sync and verify the bookmark is synced to the Fx account on Linux desktop with the same keyword. 
6. Change the keyword of same bookmark on Linux desktop and trigger a sync
7. Go to Windows desktop, trigger a sync on the Fx account and verify bookmark keyword has changed 

Expected: Bookmarks keyword changes should be bidirectional, change on one device should be synced on the other device.

Actual: Keyword change on Windows doesn't sync to Linux but if I change (add, delete)keyword on Linux it syncs correctly to Windows

Note: Between Mac and Linux, keyword changes on Mac sync to Linux but keyword change on Linux didn't sync back to Mac OS.
I suspect this is bug 1328737 (although that describes the problem as being that we don't remove keywords correctly, and as a keyword can only apply to one URL, sometimes changing a keyword from one URL to another doesn't work)

This does sound a lot like bug 1328737. Keywords are funky: they're linked to URLs, but we sync them for individual bookmarks. Flagging myself to check if this still happens after bug 1328737 lands.

I'm so sorry, I should've caught this in review for bug 1328737. Added a test just in case.

Bug 1332897 - Ensure `removeConflictingKeywords` passes the correct params to `addSyncChangesForBookmarksWithURL`.

Ah, ****. and yeah, it looks like that function would be silent when just passed one arg, my bad.
