Hello there,

I am going crazy over this. Everytime I restart my computer/restart firefox, firefox logs me out of the firefox sync. i saw the other help articles related to this topic where you have to go to the preferences and the history section with the cache and make sure cookies still working but that did not fix it. I have been trying for a couple hours someone please help because I have to relogin to everything everytime I turn on computer and redownload all browser extensions.

I use 3 separate computers, all shared. I created a firefox account to have access to my bookmarks,history,etc on all computers. I thought it would be like my own user account but it is syncing all data. Is there a way to keep my browser data separate from others?

I've lost all my login passwords , bookmarks and every single thing that can be synced. For some reason I had to reinstall windows so I made sure that I had synced everything in Firefox. But when I reinstalled Firefox and logged in , everything was gone. There was nothing that I had synced and it wasn't there even in the restore option in the bookmark menu. Can anyone please help me to get my synced Items back?

I'm using a desktop system and two laptops and a moues gesture addon is really helpful on the desktop but doesn't seem necessary on a laptop so I'd like to avoid having it installed on them if possible.

Every time I restart my computer I get logged out of my Firefox account. This does not happen when I close the browser only when I shutdown or restart my computer. I have tried removing add-ons and also making sure the browser remembers cookies when it closes. Is there a way so Firefox won't log me out and have to sign into sync after a computer restart?

Happened once a while back but happened again today. Firefox Sync asked me to reconnect, which I did. After that reconnection, and even if "password" is checked in the parameters, all my passwords have disappeared. I do also have Firefox on my phone, which have all my passwords from before the first instance it occured, but it never synchronized to Firefox on my computer. No error messages appears when synchronizing, and everything seems to be normal. Any way to correct the non-synchronization of passwords ? Is there something I'm doing wrong ? Thanks.

Hey, I have a problem with addons and Firefox Sync

On my computer I have 3 addons installed, but I dont need them there because they are useless on this system. But on my Linux Laptop I need these 3 addons to be enabled. Both Profiles are using Firefox Sync to keep the same data. That means if I disable/enable them on one of the devices it affect the other one.

Is there any way to prevent that?

Thanks in advance

Hello!

While I do have 97 tabs open in Firefox on my iPhone, NONE of them appear in my 'Synced Tabs' Sidebar in Firefox on my macbook pro.

To allay the immediate and obvious questions: + Yes, I'm running the most up-to-date version of Firefox on my mac (76.0.1) and on my iPhone (version 25 with no additional update available on the App Store) + Yes, I am signed-in on both devices. + Yes, I am signed-in to the SAME account on both devices. + Most surprisingly: YES AND YES, I can SEND a specific TAB from the mac to the iPhone as well as SEND A--ie ONE at a time--TAB from the iPhone to the Mac. Whaaaaaat... why??

(a quick PS: the all-caps words are all-caps-ed for emphasis on how unbelievable this is--I'm far more surprised than I am angry; I have faith in the Firefox community being able to solve this)

To reiterate, despite the situation described above, ZERO tabs appear in the list of Synced Tabs! There is a (fairly meta) screenshot attached below which shows the empty Synced Tabs Sidebar.

THINGS I have ALREADY tried: 1) I have tried signing out and signing back in on the Mac. 2) I have tried pressing/running a 'sync' on both devices. 3) I have searched for archived help files and found one suggesting I look for a "userChrome.css" file in the profile folder buried in the hidden view of my ~/library--I did this and found no such file. 4) I tried signing out and clicking on the 'sign-in to sync tabs' button IN THE Synced Tabs Sidebar ITSELF; I was able to login but... no change. 5) I tried RENAMING BOTH devices. The renaming synced on both sides, but THE TABS ARE STILL MISSING.  :/

I've run out of immediate ideas... I turn to you, here, for help. Please help.

Cheers, MitzvahGuy
