iCloud Bookmarks

I ended up reinstalling an older version of Firefox on my work Windows machine, and I launched iCloud in order to resync bookmarks, but iCloud bookmarks had unchecked Chrome and I need now checkmark both Chrome and Firefox. When I do so, iCloud asks me if I want to merge the current browser bookmarks. No, I don't, I want a one-way sync from iCloud to the browsers, NOT a merge. The only push buttons are "merge" and "cancel", there is not "decline" or "no" button. If I press "cancel" it cancels the whole operation.

The last time I did a merge, I got a mess, double entries, entries out of place, a new subfolder of similar web links. I attributed that to Chrome having become unsynced and when resyncing it, the merge function took the local Chrome browser bookmarks and mixed them up and into the already stored iCloud one.

Any suggestions or ideas?

Export your bookmarks copy the files over and import them the old fashioned way.
