Installed all the packages in comment 2. Launched the browser from the systems menu. Visited a few sites including gmail account. Started to synchronize with firefox bookmarks - first shut down firefox then started synch. That brought up a red box in the top right-hand corner which reported that synchronization was not working. Tried signing into Google but that wanted a pass-phrase - no idea what to enter but after a long search discovered something from long ago regarding synchronizing "devices" which it seemed to accept but the red box remained. A tab appeared in the menu which opened out into a cascading menu of all the firefox bookmarks. There does not seem to be any way to install those as a side-bar like in firefox so there is always a lot of clicking to find a particular entry (three tiers and a total of maybe 2000 bookmarks). So, it does work, sort of. As in firefox, the Ctrl +/- operation allows zooming.
Validating. Advisory in Comment 1.
An update for this issue has been pushed to the Mageia Updates repository.
