Chrome and EDGE bookmarks always seems to be outdated

feriber 4 weeks ago updated 6 days ago 7

For a couple of weeks now, I have noticed a strange behavior in FVD Synchronizer, both in EDGE and Chrome.
It always tells me that my bookmarks are not up to date, and that "Before starting synchronization you must select one of the following actions: Merge, Upload or Download".
The installed version is 2.0.8 and I get the same thing on different computers. Both Chrome and EDGE are updated to the latest version.
Despite this message, with Chrome (which is my default browser) I can sync bookmarks with no problems.
However with EDGE, I usually CANNOT, it duplicates my bookmarks in the cloud and locally it leaves me less than half. I have to retrieve a copy from Firefox to the cloud, and download them to local in EDGE (having previously deleted them all). I get an error but it downloads them all.
With Firefox I don't have any problem and I don't get that warning message. In this case the version is 18.5.7.

Thank you very much for the suggestion, but I don't need to check the synchronisation settings of the browsers, as I don't have it activated in any of them. In Firefox I have NO problem. It is in Chromium-based browsers where I get the warning mentioned above, and where sometimes the bookmark synchronisation "goes crazy".

This is the messaga i ALWAYS see in Chrome and EDGE. I can synch 90% times in Chrome without issues, but 50% of times when I try the same in EDGE, some times EDGE deletes many cloud bookmarks other it does not load every cloud ones and deletes half local ones. I keeping always a local backupo copy (once i get a good state).

I've updated to version 23.1.3 with same results. Pehaps synchonizations do not fail as before, but i can not be sure

I've been doing some more test and at work, neither Chrome or Edge plugin synchronize at all. When i add a bookmark, it is not uploaded to the cloud. I have to upload ALL. And when i delete a bookmark, it is not deleted at the cloud. I hace to upload ALL again.
Tith Firefox i do not have any issue, some times faster some times slower, but at least content is the same locally and at the cloud.
In a couple of hours I'll repeat the test at home.

I've made similar test at home with same results.

I have updated the extension to version 23.1.4 and the problem persists.

I have noticed that when I sync (after updating the cloud information with Firefox), now the extension deletes all bookmarks locally and stops.
With the previous version, after deleting, the extension would download 80 bookmarks before stopping.
This behaviour was similar in both Chrome and Edge (as expected).
