Environment: 
Device: Huawei MediaPad M2 (Android 5.1.1);
Build: Nightly 56.0a1 (2017-06-18);
Prerequisite: Firefox account used for sync has 3 folders A, B, C with bookmarks.

Steps to reproduce:
1. Launch Firefox with a clean profile;
2. Bookmark a few pages and add 3 folders A, B, C.
3. Perform a sync. 

Expected result:
All the folders are displayed on bookmarks panel.

Actual result:
The folders added at step 2 are not displayed.

When you say "clean profile", do you mean "signed-out" as well? Which then implies that you sign-into sync at step 3? Are you also observing that newly created folders A, B, and C disappear after you sync?

Yes, with clean profile means that I'm not synced on Firefox. But now I see a different behavior:the folders added at step 2 are not displayed but the bookmarks from that folders are displayed in folders with the same name after sync.

So if a folder A is created before the user Sign In, and exist a folder A created already on account, when sync process is done we are displaying only one folder? and we merge the bookmarks? is this expected? If so, means that this bug is invalid.

Yes.

If you have on your local device:

  Mobile Bookmarks
    Folder A (guid zzzzzz)
      Bookmark B (guid yyyyyy)

and you have on the server

  Mobile Bookmarks
    Folder D (guid dddddd)
    Folder A (guid abcdef)
      Bookmark C (guid xxxxxx)

the expected result after a sync is for all devices to have

  Mobile Bookmarks 
    Folder D (guid dddddd)
    Folder A (guid abcdef)
      Bookmark C (guid xxxxxx)
      Bookmark B (guid yyyyyy)
Thanks for clarification. I will close this bug.
