Description

2 years ago
User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Android 7.1.1; Mobile; rv:55.0) Gecko/55.0 Firefox/55.0
Build ID: 20170331102142

Steps to reproduce:

Create a bookmark on desktop Firefox Nightly and sync using the sync sidebar.
Open Android Firefox Nightly and sync.


Actual results:

I cannot see the bookmark in Firefox Nightly on Android. I cannot see Android bokkmarks on desktop either.


Expected results:

All the bookmarks should be on both devices. Sync between desktops works fine. Sending links from desktop to android and the other way around also works. Bookmarks do not.

Hello!

Approximately how many bookmarks do you have? I assume bookmark sync is enabled, right?

Generally these symptoms seem like the same as in Bug 1350442. However, you mention that bookmarks from Android do not appear on desktop, which seems to indicate that something else might be going on.

Can you attach device as you are syncing on Android? If you have `adb` installed, simple `adb logcat` output should do the trick. There's also a LogView extension which might make getting logs easier: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/android/addon/logview/

Hmmm. Seems to work now. It sound kind of silly but I had the sync setting in Android disabled. I had no clue of what that setting was doing. Sorry for the spam :(
