I know the answer to this is probably going to be along the lines of this is not possible, but I thought I'd ask anyway since none of the information is entirely clear. Or answers my exact question.

I have one desktop install of firefox and I have two android ones. I have all three synced to one firefox account, so it's easy to grab links I saved while wiki diving on something. While this works perfectly for the desktop side of things, the mobile side is where the issue arises.

Currently all my bookmarks from both mobile firefox accounts are merged into one long set, regardless of device. While the desktop ones have their own folder. Is there a way to keep the bookmarks from each device in their own separate folder? Like say instead of having one big mobile bookmarks folder, having one named DeviceX, and the other DeviceY?

It's still semi functional on desktop where I have more screen real estate and have to deliberately go to the mobile bookmarks folder, but on the phones it can be confusing when a set of bookmarks from device 1 mixes randomly into those of device 2. As it can become a lot harder to keep track of things.

Now I know one can turn off syncing of bookmarks. This is not what I'm looking for as I do still want to be able to share them between all three devices. Just have them more organised.

I also know one can make different accounts for say work or personal, but again I want them all to sync, just not mix them into one list.

So in short is there a way to be able to have two android devices into a threeway sync and keep the bookmarks separate? Or is my only option the round abound way of making subfolders and hope I remember to save in those?

Thanks either way.

Hello, since an update (unfortunately I can't say whether it was my Mac or Firefox) I have "too many" accounts on sync. Firefox on the iPad and Firefox on the iPhone and two Firefox accounts with similar names on the computer are displayed. I actually use one of them, the other is just displayed. The one I can't influence/change shows tabs from ~2 weeks ago. I've already logged out of Firefox and logged in again, stopped the synchronization, and closed the browser. Thanks in advance!

Due to a Windows 11 system restore, I had to reinstall Firefox. After signing in I found that all bookmarks, extensions and passwords have gone and the original 2020 profile they were attached to seems to be missing as well. I initially installed the Firefox app from the windows store and thought that might have been the problem, so uninstalled it and reinstalled from the mozilla website. That didn't heelp so I went through all the help articles I could find and I still can't figure out how to restore anything.

Although I have disabled all relevant "sync" settings in Firefox, the browser is still syncing tabs across my MacBookAir and my iMac.

To make matters worse, tabs in Chrome and Safari sync to Firefox tabs across devices as well. The sync occurs in both directions.

I am not logged into Chrome or my gmail account.

Specs: MacBookAir: early 2015/ OS v. 12.7 (Monterey) iMac: Retina 4K, 21.5-inch, 2017 / OS 12.6.8 (Monterey)

Things I've tried:

  • Turning off syncing in Firefox on both devices.
  • Signing out of Firefox from both devices.
  • Disabling "sync open tabs" via Firefox preferences
  • Renaming devices from within Firefox Sync. (The name always reverts to the previous one.)
  • Reinstalling Firefox
  • Deleting cache from both Firefox and Chrome.
  • Restarting

Images are from toolbar on iMac when Firefox is open on both computers. Any help would be most appreciated! Thanks!

- I have sync turned on both - Bookmarks toggled on both - I am signed in - I have clicked "sync now" on both devices multiple times - I have un-bookmarked and re-bookmarked pages multiple times - I open up "search bookmarks" on PC and type the mobile website name and nothing comes up - I try and edit the location of the mobile bookmark into "other" or "toolbar" etc and that doesn't make it appear

I was trying to create an account for the first time to use Firefox sync on a different computer and I guess I must have either somehow entered my age wrong or be having some weird error. Now when I go to click sign it it still says I cannot create an account due to age requirements. I have made this account on my other computer, but I am hoping to still be able to sync my browser from the computer that is having this problem.

I'm locked out of my Firefox account. I set my previous employer's email address ([edited] @cdolinc.net) as my primary email address, and my personal email address ([edited] @gmail.com) as a secondary email address. I attempted to reset my password using the password reset email that was sent to my secondary email address, but after I enter a new password twice and submit it the page reloads with the following error message:

Your email was just returned. Mistyped email?

I'm sure my previous employer has an out-of-office email setup to indicate that I no longer work there. Is there anyway to resolve the issue without asking my previous employer if they can turn off Out-of-office replies temporarily?

Thank you, Sean

I'm the tech director (tech janitor) for a public school that is using Securly.com for their Internet filter. Securly requires installing their own certificate so they can be a man-in-the-middle. I've installed that cert into Firefox and that works fine. However, even with that cert installed, Sync doesn't work when I'm behind that filter. As soon as I take one of my computers off the school network, everything will sync up. I don't get any errors that sync is failing, it's just not working. Any ideas on how I can fix that issue?

Thanks!

I had a hard drive fail and needed to do an entire new install. One of the very first things I do is install firefox and sync so I have all my sites tabs and passwords.

I did this and got the Secure connection failed errors instantly thereafter. no reboot nothing fixed it. Bing chrome opera all fail to work. refusing all secure connections. It will load microsoft but I cannot log in. It will load 1000 other sites as long as they are not the SSL pages. No other browser will load either.

This is instantly after signing in to sync.

I was left with no choice but to assume something got corrupted and wipe and redo windows AGAIN on this new drive.

This time I downloaded everything with bing and edge. Then when I was done after two days. I downloaded FF and tested it.

Worked great.

Signed into sync and BAM, all browsers and all websites refuse connections.

I have signed out of sync. I have deleted firefox. I have cleared SSL and DNS and every other setting I can think of or that chat gpt suggested. from cmd line. hard.

No remaining browsers will load. New firefox with no profile and no sync will load.

Whatever sync DID remains totally systemic and persistent and ONLY a total wipe of the drive fixed it last time.

Why will FF simply DO something like this and WTF did it do?
