I have Firefox on 3 devices, I deleted several passwords from 1 device expecting this change to sync to the other 2 devices. Instead for several days the 2 devices showed the original number of passwords whilst the device I made the changes on showed the new amount. Now that device appears to have resynced the passwords I deleted. Am I supposed to delete them on each device?

I have the latest version of FF on all devices.

I had to reset my computer and lost the bookmarks there. When I reinstalled Fifefox I had to reset my password and lost my bookmarks associated with that email address. HOWEVER, I have firefox installed on my mobile phone with all bookmarks intact. Is there a way to get the bookmarks from my mobile to the laptop?

My Subject pretty well says it. I'm trying to transfer by syncing my desktop Firefox with the Firefox 124 on a newly installed Kubuntu on a new laptop. I have all these functions synced ON. The recent history but not the long-term history, passwords (thank heavens), and all bookmarks got transferred, but not the open tabs/pages. I've done the desktop sync followed by the laptop sync a few times, still without the tabs' transferring. How do i get those transferred?

Hello, I recently created a new sync account for work so I wouldn't have to use my personal sync account. I noticed after creating the new sync account it still retained my passwords from my personal account. Is it safe for me to delete all my personal passwords on the work account or will it also delete those passwords on my personal?

Thanks

Hello everyone,

I was forced to reformat my computer today and I seem to have lost all of my passwords that were saved in Firefox.

I did not back up any of the files that were on my PC as I was unable to do so. I think I have been able to log back in my account and find my passwords.

When I logged back into my Firefox after re-installing it, my passwords are all gone. I need help!

Thank you all

Warning emails from Mozilla about the use of Firefox 78 with iOS 10. El Capitan

I’m being advised via emails from Mozilla, to update my browser. It says it’s up to date. A cut off of 31 March has been stated.

My mbp won’t run higher than OS X 10.11.6. Firefox 78.15.0esr the latest browser for my system..afaik. I am on the ESR update channel, and think it updates automatically.

Am I being left high & dry by Mozilla? Something in the emails about syncing…? Not convinced if this is something I should be doing something about or not…

Any advice or insights much appreciated. The suggestion seems to be that I will be shut out without passwords and recovery keys and whole load of inconvenience…? Thanks in advance, Tim

On one laptop right-clicking on a tab gives me a Send tab to device option and when I click on it I get a message that the tab was sent. But the tab doesn't arrive on the other laptop. 2. Though I'm using the same version of Firefox on both laptops, I can only find the send tab option on one laptop because the menus are different. And many of the instructions I see online describe items on the menu that just don't show up. I know that I was once -- I don't know how long ago -- able to send a tab from one laptop to another. Most of the instructions are about sending from a phone to a desktop or vice versa. I hope someone can help. Thank you.

I've spent a long time tidying up the passwords on my main PC. Every so often I did a manual sync too. I also imported into Edge occasionally and I noticed a few sites' details there that I had deleted from FF. Strange! Anyway, I finished the tidy up and went to my Android phone (set up to sync) and did the sync there and it looked OK. I then had the idea to look here for the 'extra' one I had seen in Edge and sure enough it was there! I also noticed lots of others I had deleted from the 'Master'. Changes to passwords had been replicated successfully though. What is the logic for syncing in these instances? I then signed out of FF on the phone to stop the sync and deleted one that was common to both and then signed back in and synced - it did delete it from the PC when I synced that. This makes me nervous to delete them all from the phone when signed out and syncing upon re-connect. So, what is the safe way to make the password details from the PC be an exact copy on the phone - no extras?! My thoughts were to disconnect the phone (but hoped it would remove things), delete the details manually if required, sign back in and re-sync. But I don't want to risk the sync actually wiping out the contents of the PC! Thanks! TL;DR - how can I safely remove the synced contents from one device and then resync it. Currently, the contents across devices is different after a sync.

Hello, I am trying to sync my browser data between two computers. On the computer I want the data from I click on "Sign in to Sync". This brings me through a couple menus asking me to sign in with google, and finally sends me to a space to set my password. I already have an account associated with my email and already have a password. I type in my same password again and a red bar with "Unverified Session" appears at the top. I am using the latest version of firefox on windows 11. I do not want to delete my account or make a new one. I have tried as many ways as I can think of to link my existing mozilla account to my browser but it simply will not let me. Another support ticket solved this by creating a new account but I find this solution unsatisfactory.

I was using firefox for a while and i have to format my pc because of a problem and when i download it again i sync it something came back but not all of them my passwords mostly came back and all my extensitions also back but i have a lot of container and none of them came back and i sent a mail for you but it was Turkish and i get back replied and support guy said we are only taking message as a English and he said i translated your message and be sure you sync the right account and if is it the right account you can also. If you have another device that does have the data, then you can create a backup and manually restore it following the instructions in this article: that what he said but i dont have and ex data and i want to figure it out is it possible to take my cointainers exactly same because the most important reason of using firefox for me was containers.Have a good day.

Hi,

I had a new windows installation done without backing up the firefox profile while foolishly resetting the firefox password too without using the recovery key and effectively losing my current data.

Is there anything that could be done to restore the data to my account or is that the end?

Add old history to new

cor-el mentioned "The only way to merge history is by using Sync".

Does "merge" mean like it sounds, to combines the content, or does it mean the latest will overwrite the oldest, or one will overwrite the other under other conditions?

Synced Tabs from other device did show till yesterday but no longer showing

It just says "connect another device"

My other device had to be 'factory reset' but that was some time ago (nearly a month) and the tabs from it were still showing till yesterday in my main device, Now they've disappeared, is there a way to get those tabs back??

I read somewhere that those tabs are maybe on the Firefox server, is there a way to access those???
