Provide mirror of Firefox sync for Russian users in non-blocked IP subnet

Mozilla Firefox Sync is blocked in whole Russia, when Russian authorities (Roskomnadzor) try to block Telegram, so it blocks those subnets: http://isitblockedinrussia.com/?host=accounts.firefox.com 35.160.0.0/13 54.144.0.0/12

Additional info here: https://github.com/sxiii/russian-blackout

So all Russian users at now can't use Firefox Sync (accounts.firefox.com) and other Mozilla cloud services.

Can Mozilla provide mirror or proxy for accounts.firefox.com website and other services in new IP subnet, that not blocked in Russia?

For Russian users: Роскомнадзор (РКН) заблокировал в России доступ к синхронизации Mozilla Firefox поэтому сайты accounts.firefox.com, firefoxusercontent.com, sync.services.mozilla.com не открываются у многих русских провайдеров (Ростелеком, Мегамакс, Virgin Connect и т.п.)

Lately I often get message that I am unable to reach Mozilla's servers. I live in Russia and my IP is Russian too. I had to reinstall Firefox recently and my sync was incomplete (no logins, no history, no bookmarks) even though I had that checked in before. Could it be external problem because of recent Telegram blockings in Russia? Or is it only me?

I opened a laptop I haven't used in over a year. Firefox down-dated all my bookmarks to the year-old settings which means lost all my passwords, URLs and links that I had configured. Since the sync is universal, it removed them from ALL my computers. Now, the only way I have of getting the old links, is to restore my entire computer!


needless to say, I am pissed! This is a bug that existed over a year ago and was reported!

For the first time since Firefox was released, I am considering changing to a new browser!

is there any way to recover the new book marks that were deleted?


This is phenomenally stupid!

Firefox no longer seems to be syncing my bookmarks among devices. In particular, the bookmarks I add on my work iMac do not sync to my android phone or my home macbook pro. I have done the following things to attempt to get things working:

1. Turned off firefox sync on all devices and then back on. 2. Deleted my firefox sync account and recreated it. 3. Deleted and reinstalled firefox on both my android phone and my macbook pro

I have also gone to about:sync-log and see that I seem to have lots of sync errors. I've attached a screenshot of the sync-log screen. I can't seem to attach the txt file of the latest error log, so I'm attaching two screen shots of it as well.

If anyone can help me out, I'd certainly appreciate it!

Edit: Here's a pastebin link of the error log: https://pastebin.mozilla.org/9086433

Sync fails sync Bookmarks on one PC only.

I've recently noticed lots of error-sync logs in the %APPDATA%\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\<My Profile>\weave\logs folder. My sync is set up to handle Bookmarks and History only.

I have 4 devices, 2 PCs - both Firefox 56.0.2 32-bit and 2 Android devices (latest Firefox, not sure of version). All 4 were previously set to sync together, Bookmarks/History.

One of the PCs (Windows 7 x64) - has the logs, but I've read numerous articles online on how to fix Sync myself or correct a corrupted places.sqlite database as that's what the error log seems to be suggesting is wrong.

Running check integrity against places.sqlite gives me this:

> Task: checkIntegrity - Unable to check database integrity > Task: checkCoherence - The task queue was cleared by an error in another task. > Task: expire - The task queue was cleared by an error in another task. > Task: vacuum - The task queue was cleared by an error in another task. > Task: stats - The task queue was cleared by an error in another task. > Task: _refreshUI - The task queue was cleared by an error in another task.

I have tried to repeat the process in safe mode and with a clear (new) profile - the issue persists. I have deleted places.sqlite (after making a backup) to see if sync suddenly starts working - but the bookmark related issue simply returns.

I have signed out on all devices, changed my sync password and logged in on just the PCs (for now until the problem is resolved). I have deleted all bookmarks on the 'problem' PC, then re-imported them from Internet Explorer on the other PC, then reactivated sync - this seems to initially work but once the 'problem' PC has the bookmarks, it tries to sync them and the errors return.

The error in question appears to be this:

1527797240532 Sync.Engine.Bookmarks WARN Error while backing up bookmarks, but continuing with sync: Error: Error(s) encountered during statement execution: database disk image is malformed (resource://gre/modules/Sqlite.jsm:823:25) JS Stack trace: handleCompletion@Sqlite.jsm:823:25 1527797240534 Sync.BrowserIDManager DEBUG _ensureValidToken already has one 1527797240543 Sync.Engine.Bookmarks DEBUG Successfully wrote previousFailed.

I can supply the entire file if required or put it on pastebin.

The only real issue I'm having is that I simply want my history/bookmarks (but nothing else) shared between all my devices that use Firefox, be it quantum or 56.0.2.

I have not tried Firefox Quantum (as numerous add-ons I use are unsupported and I didn't want to simply switch without a road back). I did try Firefox 52.0.8 ESR but the first thing it did was delete my places.sqlite so I wasn't able to reproduce the problem I'm having as I don't want to lose my history data (bookmarks are stored primarily in IE for convenience and simply imported when I need them as I use 'PlainOldFavorites' extension).

This looks like a bug with firefox sync or a corrupt file, but since I've cleared places.sqlite and let FF recreate it, I'm at a loss. If you need any further information to help solve this, I'm happy to provide as much as possible.

Thanks for any suggestions you can offer :)

Hi, the synchronization has stopped working on computers, although the system is logged on. Neither the bookmarks, nor the add-ons, nor the rest is synchronized. When you hover the cursor on the "update" button in the upper right corner, the "last synchronization on January 1" prompt appears (today is May 14). I did a factory default reset on one of the computers, but that did not help. I attach below the text of the file error-sync-1526289870190.txt, if this helps to understand. Thank you)

I have a working Firefox sync account, running on two computers already. I tried to log in on a new computer, and received a "Password Incorrect" error. I think this is related to the change to Sync in Sep 2015.

My account was created in 2012, and the password is stored in a password manager, so I know it is not lost and not incorrect. The password was last changed in Aug 2012.

I tried following the instructions here: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/sync-your-firefox-bookmarks-history-passwords-and- but there is already a Sync account with my email address, so it doesn't work.

How do I create a new Firefox account with the existing email address, without losing the existing information? Is it best to delete the account with a connected computer, then create a new account and synchronise again?
