Find Sync in the Preferences menu on your Mac or go to Options in the Firefox menu in Windows. Create a Sync account with an email address and password.

Fill your details (email address and password). You can optionally check/uncheck the details (bookmarks, passwords, preferences, history, tabs) that need to be synced.

Simply go to Tools -> Set up Sync… again and click ‘Connect’ button. You’ll be prompted to enter your sync key. Once you’ve provided the key, it will download all your bookmarks instantly.
