Hello everyone, I set up a new PC and wanted to log-in to Firefox Sync. With the first try I received the answer, that my account is locked due to a returned e-Mail. I never received any mail during this attempt. I still have access to my e-Mail. Now I read, that I may get help here.

Thanks in advance Heike

Hello, I have two laptops, an old one with a synced firefox, and a new one where I want to get all the passwords, tabs, theme, settings and extensions. The OS is the same (NixOS, Linux).

I can successfully log-in and enable sync on the new laptop: it's possible for me to see the list of tabs from the other device, open and sync those tabs, but other things are not synced or synced partially.

For example: of the 30+ passwords on the old device, only 15 are present in the new device; no theme or extension is synced, bookmarks seems to be properly synced.

I don't know where to get more info about the sync (besides the about:sync-log page, which shows no logs), so I can't really tell what's going on. Indeed, nothing changes if I press the "Sync now" button.

I also tried refreshing firefox or creating a new profile from scratch and sync that again, but to no avail. Do you have any suggestion? Thanks

Hi

This is not a bug, just more of a feature request. Every time when I sync an account to a new device, I got a popup to sync another device and afterwards I get a mail on how to complete my sync setup and sync another device. I'd have no problem with it, if this is my first device that I am trying to sync. But I have several devices with the sync enabled, I am syncing from these devices and Mozilla knows this as it has history of devices where I was signed in and it can see that there are data to be synced so apparently this is not the first device you are trying to sync. Can we have an option to dismiss these messages and popups forever?

Thanks

I normally use Firefox Beta. Ever since upgrading to v92 the option to Send Tab to Device has been missing when I right-click on a tab. I've downloaded other versions of Firefox and the issue seems to follow me out of Beta and into the regular release. I've seen other people having issues with syncing and sending tabs between devices as of late, but no one seemed to be completely missing the option to do so.

My laptop just came back from the shop after a hard drive crash and Ive had to reinstall everything. I just reinstalled firefox, signed in and synced but its not got any of my bookmarks, saved passwords/logins, add ons or history. I tried to do the Import and Restore but there is nothing in there. I checked the profiles, there are two, profile:defualt-release and profile:default. Neither have any bookmarks, saved logins etc. I've been using firefox for years and have synced it before and it worked then. I chose firefox specifically so that I could just restore all my stuff in the event of a crash but now I can't find any of it. Is there any other way to get all my saved stuff back? Any advice would be greatly appreiated! thanks.

Hi, i'm using Firefox Sync and therefore FF asks for primary password on every startup. The delay until it asks for the password is annoying. e.g. already typing into my favorite search engine when i look up and see the seach term is typed into the password field because of the delayed, random popup.

I know there's a workaroud to pin Firefox Account site to speed things up, but this is a bad workaround. Why isn't it possible to change FF to ask for the password immediately when Sync is enabled. Can't be this hard.

P.S. Why isn't Chrome asking ever for a password, even if Sync and PW are stored?

Just reinstalled my pc, never used a sync from file I always do it that way.

1. download ff 2. login 3. synced

it fails at step 3, it just doesn't do anything at all, all I can see is my profile picture but nothing else, no bookmarks, no history, no addons, anything

I tried to sync on with my mobile, but there is literally nothing to sync.. I never used a backup file or anything

what should I do to get my addons and bookmarks back?

thanks

I have 3 machines. One machine has less add-ons than the others. Most of them sync up, but not all. Maybe it's an OS issue?

Ubuntu 20 - sync working Win 10 Enterprise (Firefox Portable) - sync working Win 7 Home - missing add-ons

I have "add ons" checked in Settings/Sync on all 3 machines. Not sure what else to describe.

Obviously I want all machines to have the same add-ons, which is why I selected sync.

After syncing two of my Windows computers (10 & 11), I noticed that the Search Shortcuts configuration of the FF Dev browser on one computer (the more recently updated browser) did not sync to the other computer's FF Dev browser. Both computers show that settings/options should sync.

I suppose this is more of a bug report than a question, but if anyone has any advice, I would appreciate hearing it.

Greetings, I have two computers, a personal computer and a work issued computer. The work computer was replaced the other day and I was able to transfer all my settings using time machines (it's a Mac) but I cannot get Firefox to sync my settings and book marks. I have made certain I am using the same account, I have the latest version of Firefox on both computers, I've pressed the Sync button more than five times but all to no avail. Can you tell me what I missing or doing wrong?

Yours, D.
