Everytime I open Firefox, none of my bookmarks, passwords, or history are saved. How do I change this?

Skrevet

I recently had to wipe my MacBook Air clean thus prompting me to download Firefox - version 70.01 (64-bit). I set up all of my work websites, history, passwords, emails, etc., but every time I close the browser and try to open it again, nothing is saved. I've tried several times and I am at a loss. Yes, I have created a Firefox account, and even this won't leave me logged in if I close the browser. I have to start over every time. Any advice?

It sounds like maybe reinstalling Firefox created a new profile folder for you and maybe that's the one that Firefox is trying to load by default.

If you go to the about:profiles page in Firefox, so you see multiple profiles listed? If so, try the Launch Profile in New Browser button to see if that brings back your data. If it does, use the Set as Default Profile button to force Firefox to open that profile by default.

All of that is explained in more detail at the bottom of the Recover lost or missing Bookmarks article.

Hope this helps.

Thank you for the reply! I feel that solved most of the issue - I have one profile set as my "default," but every time I launch Firefox I have to sign in, go through the process, etc. How do I have my firefox account already logged in every time I launch the browser? My passwords, bookmarks, history, etc. all appear once I sign in, but I would like it to be automatic. Any thoughts?

Thanks.

There could be an issue with the profile that Firefox is using. You may want to try creating a fresh profile as your default and then seeing if the data stays saved.
