There's a "Data provider options" section at the bottom, with an
"Export to file" button. That'll generate a JSON export of your tree,
with anonymized bookmark URLs and titles. You can email that export to
me, and I'll triage it. (You could also attach it to a new bug, but
that might not scale well, especially since we expect to see a lot of
the same issues).

Some of those might be known issues, but it's still helpful to have
them confirmed. For example, if you see six queries and two folders
that shouldn't have been uploaded, and one of those folders has a
"places" parent, it's likely

We have telemetry for noticing trends in the sync failure rate, but it
takes a few days to spot those, and they're not as granular as
individual results. If you see more validation errors in the coming
week, with the new tracker, please ping me or file a bug.
