`PlacesUtils.bookmarks.update` already does this, but we need to give `moveToFolder` the same treatment. Otherwise, we won't reupload the moved children, and their `parentid` won't be updated on the server. For the mirror (and iOS), that's OK, since we treat the parent's `children` as canonical. But this will confuse the older bookmarks engine and Android, both of which treat the item's `parentid` as canonical.
This patch unifies `updateBookmark` and `moveBookmark`. `update` already handles the Sync change counter, and `move` specially optimizes for moves. We can consolidate the two by reusing the queries from `move` in `update`, moving its extra `setAncestorsLastModified` call to `PlacesUtils.bookmarks.update`, and removing its transaction and wrapper.
We might want a simpler patch for Beta that just copies the change counter handling into `moveBookmark`, instead of consolidating the two.
[Tracking Requested - why for this release]: Fixes an issue where moving a bookmark between two folders doesn't sync the move to other devices.

Patch for Beta. Approval Request Comment [Feature/Bug causing the regression]: Bug 1404909. [User impact if declined]: Broken bookmark sync: bookmarks moved into different folders on one device won't be moved on others. [Is this code covered by automated tests?]: Yes. [Has the fix been verified in Nightly?]: No. [Needs manual test from QE? If yes, steps to reproduce]: Yes, please. 1. Set up Sync on two devices (one Desktop, the other Desktop or mobile). 2. Add a bookmark on one device, verify it's synced to the second device. 3. Move the bookmark into a different folder on the first device, sync, and verify it's moved into the same folder on the second. [List of other uplifts needed for the feature/fix]: None. [Is the change risky?]: No. [Why is the change risky/not risky?]: Small patch that copy-pastes a condition from an existing, tested function; also includes new xpcshell test.

Brindusa, can you verify the fix? Thanks! STR in comment 8.
I have verified the fix on the latest Nightly 63.0a1(20180718100918): the bookmarks/folders are correctly synced between devices.

I tested this on Windows 10 x64, Ubuntu 16.04 and Mac OS following the steps from comment 8 on Beta 62.0b10 and Nightly 63.0a1(2018-07-18) and the issue is no longer reproducible. Based on the information above, I will mark this as verified-fixed on 62.
