I find Sync convenient when, e.g., I am on a public computer. But when I am done using that computer, I want to delete all my bookmarks, etc., to leave Firefox as I found it on that computer. Disconnecting my Sync account leaves all the bookmarks, however. How can I restore Firefox to its original state when I am done?

I have tried the "Reset Firefox" option at about:support without success—my bookmarks remain in the browser.

Thank you

I cleared the browsing history on my main computer with sync turned on. Then I went and set up a print server, installed firefox and signed into sync my account to access saved bookmarks for printing, and all the history that I had previously deleted was again loaded. How can I delete browsing history so it is also deleted from my account? This seems like a serious privacy concern not to be able to clear synced history, and hopefully there is a way aside from deleting one's account?

Today I reinstalled my PC. I already used Firefox Sync, so assumed all my bookmarks would be safe. So, I did the following:

-Reinstall Windows (8.1) -After successful installation of Windows, I installed Firefox. I lost my account info (username/password), so I needed to recover/reset the password. So I did. No problem here. -After resetting the password, I logged in to Firefox Sync. I noticed all my bookmarks are gone

What happened?

After getting a new computer, downloading firefox, and signing into my account, none of my saved bookmarks or add-ons have synced from my previous computer. Instead, the sync seems to have just saved the fresh version of firefox with no data.


How can I access an older sync point so as to restore the older data for bookmarks and addons?

Every time reinstall on my main computer, sync appears to lose all its cloud-data? AKA sync will not pull any data down. Windows 10, build 1511.

This happens every time I have to reinstall my system. In the past I would copy my profile over but this is not an available option. I lost over 200, distinct, bookmarks.

This particular time, I did not setup my profile immediately as I had other environment setup concerns so I let firefox go while rebuilding my environment. Afterwards I went in and deleted the start up profile, ran firefox.exe -p created a new one and set up my sync immediately with the same account I had been using less than 36 hours before. It has been setup now for over 12 hours and still nothing. In case it matters, I did have to do a password reset in between loss of old system and start of this system.

Recovery options? I will do whatever is asked...

What is the point of sync if I can not download my data? I have seen it said that it is not a backup solution, OK, so then how does it work? When a new browser is connected it connects to Mozilla sync and then sync asks other devices for their data?

I am royally pissed at this, as far as I am concerned this is pretty much a deal breaker for me. Firefox is better in a lot of ways than chrome, but Mozilla made a big deal about firefox sync, but if it never works than what is the point? The old system worked and was reliable for me. This new system has been nothing but trouble... Why should I use something if a heavily advertised component appears to be broken?

Hi,

I clearly understood the sync application wrong - I hadn't had confidence about getting everything right, when I was forced to wipe out one of my laptops (crash), when it comes to saving everything from my profile (e.g. under win8 for some reason my profile folder was in 2 places at the same time which confused me).

But also, I wanted to be convenient (automation) and clearly understood sync functionality wrong (really? - I am honestly surprised that no application was developed that syncs my adding already existing information for the profile of the next device which you're using /or at least app like sync doesn't ask whether to do so, before wiping off all what was in the browses on this device already - really poorly thought).

So my question is: - I activated sync on one machine - I did the same on the other (older) hoping that the information from the newer machine will just pour into existing profile on the older and both (histories, bookmarks, passwords, etc. - passwords not so important, but history and bookmarks at least) will be merged. - now clearly I lost (at least for now) ALL what was in the browser on my older computer (bookmarks and history from an over of half a year of work)... ;-0

What do I do with that? How do I restore ALL this information? Is there ANY way?

It's REALLY important for me - as I am a researcher and this was a pool through which I would be going through in my everyday work.

Really bad surprise. I did all in agitation (of my computer suddenly crushing - so clerly I wasn;t thinking straight and carefuly enough - otherwise I would back up the old computer browser first, before applying sync, to check what it does without any harm; but I felt "so cool and happy" about what it can do potentially do - "merge all my content from all the computer browsers" what I assumed with pure certainty that this is what it's doing - even for a second I didn;t think that it would do anything else, and "why it would do anything else?"/which clearly I got wrong and now I am in BIG TROUBLE/.

Hi everybody, I wanted to try the Sync Feature today after downloading Firefox for developers, but I actually choose the wrong e-mail address. Let's my account is me@you.com, I wrote mee@you.com without noticing.

The thing is, I was panicking since I had all kind of private info in that browser, even corporative info, but know someone else in the world has full access to that info!

I tried from 2 different computers to sync and sign up with another account that I have, and once that you sync there is no way to delete your info from the browser of the person that got the confirmation e-mail!!

I tried already: - unsyncing the e-mail from my browser - I tried to delete the account but it didn't let me in (it was waiting for the e-mail confirmation to be received), and when I tried it back, it would tell me that the password was wrong (i.e. The guy even changed his PW!!!) - deleted some profile folders that someone recommended in an old post.

If anyone has an idea please let me know. If not, if at least can someone tell me how to report this to the Sync Team, also let me know please.

I needed to re-configure my PC due to the adware: "getconstantfun"

Not a big issue to do, including the reloading of software BUT when i re-installed Firefox and asked it to sync, ALL is blank, no apps, no bookmarks, no setups. I did not do a backup or export as not need in past.

Even though I did log-in and try a sync, It is like I have a brand new, blank setup.

Any ideas?

Cheers Mark
