I've been having this problem for a few months and I cannot figure it out. Firefox sync keeps logging me out and asking me to sign in again. Its happening pretty frequently, and I cannot determine what is the cause - anywhere from once a day to seemingly every hour. It doesn't seem to be related to closing/reopening the browser or restarting the computer.

I've tried: uninstalling/reinstalling firefox and running firefox without any addons. In both cases it didn't work - I signed into sync and then it started logging me out and asking me to sign in again within an hour or two.

I just tried to add a secondary email address to my Firefox account and get an error message stating that this email address is in use by another Firefox account user (already verified by another user).

Is there a way of finding out which account it is registered to? I can't recall ever using this email address in Firefox before?

Thanks

I have several devices that currently use syncing for bookmarks and passwords. Each device has a different use, so I do not need for instance work-based bookmarks on my home game system. Can I delete the work bookmarks from the gaming system without deleting them across the other devices?

If I can, how do I go about doing that?

Thanks!

How do I sync my Firefox mobile sync data to my computer

I want to know how to sync from my phone to my computer not from my computer to my phone. My computer sync data is corrupted and there's no backup files, while my phone still has all it's files. Firefox was spiking my ram usage by 60% or more yesterday so I uninstalled and reinstall it even though the old and new was both the latest version. When I signed on again, my computer sync data would not bring back my bookmarks, passwords, add-ons, etc..

That's why I want to know how to sync from my phone to my computer, but now my phone can't even sync, if I sync it the date doesn't change at all that it was last sync today. it shows the very last time i sync on my phone which was a month ago. I tried looking up this problem and there were some people who had same problem a few years ago but they still have their files. I have zero files of backup of anything on my computer

Missing device in synchonized device list to transfer tabs

I have two computers: one personal (HP), one from my work (MBP). I quit my job a few weeks back but still had my MBP in case they needed something. I continued to use it and I had to return it back yesterday.

I synchronized my tabs using Firefox Sync on the MBP and could see them well on my HP. I formatted the MBP and returned it, without disconnecting my Firefox account. I got back home and tried this morning to load on my HP the tabs I had on my MBP, but it is not listed anymore. (Surprisingly, some other device I didn't touch for 2 or 3 weeks is still listed, even though it's not connected.) I tried on another device to connect my Firefo account, thinking it would propose me to open a session have somewhere else, but the MBP session isn't listed there either.

I can't lose all the researches I made during the last few weeks :S I turned my side project into a full time job, I need them.

Is there any way to retrieve somehow the tabs I had open on the MBP? Is there a way to get from the Sync server any copy they have for my devices? Does Firefox writes to disk what it gets when listing the data of synchronized devices, so I could try to look into the deleted files on my disk?

Help or ideas much appreciated!

This is about my Firefox Account in general, not specific to a product.

I just looked into the devices logged into my Firefox Account and noticed that my phone is in there twice. I think this happened because I used Firefox Nightly and Firefox Preview Nightly. When I tried to disconnect the old duplicate there is an error message "Invalid parameter: refreshTokenId" in the popup about the reason. So I can't remove the duplicate.

Hello everyone,

I had Firefox Sync. on an old computer and I removed this computer from the devices synchronized around early September 2018. Is there a way to know the exact date when I've removed this synchronization ? It would help me a lot to know that.

Also, is there a way to know from which device bookmarks/history/preferences have been added/modified. I'd like to show that all the bookmarks I've added to my account have been added from my current device.

Thanks a lot for your precious help, Best regards, Quentin

Firefox sync never works after waking up computer from sleep mode. I always use my computer with sleep-mode, I rarely shut-down my computer. So I never terminate my Firefox sessions or close it completely. After waking up computer from sleep mode, You are expected to continue working from where you left off. So you continue to sync your bookmarks and so on. But Firefox Sync never synchronizes your bookmarks or data in the situation after waking up computer from sleep mode. It is a big problem. I think Firefox sync service can not handle or recognise the computer sleep-mode.
