My school email is going to be disabled in a couple of months and I was wondering if there's a way to just change the email associated with my Firefox account, or if I'll have to make a new one and carry over my bookmarks/settings/addons etc. manually.

I am using the latest MX Linux Distro and Firefox 85. I am trying to setup sync with my phone so I can access all my bookmarks and such on my phone. It pops up with a QR code to scan in the Firefox on the phone but it would never scan. After a closer look at the QR code, it is cut off at the bottom and there seems to be nothing I can do to get around that. Endless searches make it out that I am the only one having this problem.

I don't know if this is a bug in Firefox, a bug in the interface, a bug somewhere else, or what. I just want to make it work. Thank you.

I did a system restore because I thought an update had messed up some things, specifically I could not sign in to a site I use regularly because I would get a black screen and a message stating that "Northern Tool" is not currently available in your country. I had been using a vpn but it was set for a U.S. city and both I and the website are in the U.S. also. After system restore for a time only 2 days prior, my Firefox was apparently removed from my computer and all history of it. Now I am having trouble re-installing and using sync to get back my saved stuff. This is all on another PC with Windows 7.

If I make a change to my bookmarks they do not sync between devices. For example I moved some bookmarks on my Windows desktop but the changes do not appear on my iPad. I tried forcing a sync on both devices but that did not work. I disconnected the sync on the iPad and then reconnected using the bar code. After watching the sync wheel spin for a while the bookmarks were in sync. Then I deleted a bookmark folder on the iPad but that change is not visible on the desktop.

Why do the bookmarks not stay in sync??

Firefox view is a new feature that looks awesome and I'd love to try it out to sync stuff between devices. There's just one problem:

  1. Firefox view works on my laptop and seems to work on my phone, but does not work on my desktop.

For reference:

  • Desktop (doesn't have view tab) is Mac Mini 2020 (M1) on Mac OS Ventura 13.0 (22A380)
  • Laptop (has view tab) is Mac Mini 2020 (M1) on Mac OS Ventura 13.0 (22A380)
  • Both devices are running Firefox 106.0.2 (64-bit)

I have already:

  • Made sure "Open Tabs" is enabled for sync on all devices
  • Looked for the firefox view in the "Customize Toolbar" menu
  • Disabled / Re-enabled Firefox-View in about:config

I recently got all new devices and traded in my previous ones and when trying to login to Firefox Sync, I can sign in successfully but then I’m required to provide the 6-digit code that is sent to my email. I am unable to login to my email because the password in stored in my Firefox Sync saved passwords.

Attempted to reset my email password (Gmail) but I need to enter the last password that I used, which I have no idea since I’ve always used Firefox Sync and all I get from Google is “we are unable to verify this account belongs to you”. So not much traction on gaining access to my email account.

In my mind, I assumed that by utilizing Firefox Sync as a form of a password manager, I wouldn’t be in this situation as long as I knew my Firefox Sync password. I have since learned otherwise. I can sign-in on accounts.firefox.com but of course making any change requires that I put in the code that was sent via email.

I attempted to download Lockwise and again prompted to enter the code sent via email.

So at this point, I’m just wondering if I’m out of luck and although I know my password to my Firefox account that I’ll be unable to regain access to it or my email because I can’t access the 6-digit code being sent to that email.

Any additional support or suggestions are appreciated but I feel like I’m unfortunately at the end of the line here on what else could be done.

Hello

I do not understand how firefox sync is supposed to work. I have a desktop and a laptop. The desktop is FF 85 on Linux Mint (I cannot get a later version due to some querk) The laptop is 99 on Windows 10 Both are signed in to sync but my bookmarks were scrambled so I signed out the laptop and cleared the profile, cleaned up the bookmarks in the desktop and to be safe I tried just syncing the tabs, not the bookmarks, by opening the fresh firefox on the laptop and signing in again. In the sidebar under my account icon I clicked "Synchronise now" and the open tabs from my desktop appeared in a list underneath, jumbled up. (I have 2 separate windows open on the desktop with different tabs in each, but this separation was not followed either, there didn’t seem to be any provision for syncing tabs in two separate windows)

But the row of tabs didn’t open, all I can do is open them one by one from the list on the right, this is a slow process as every time I click on a tab in the list the new page opens in the same single tab, not a new one, but the sidebar closes again.

Is this what’s supposed to happen? I was expecting the synced row of tabs to open automatically.

This feature would have been useful as my OS on the desktop, (Linux Mint) tends to crash and to have the on the laptop would be a good backup.

Incidentally the other way I try to back up the lost tabs is to select them all and bookmark them to a new folder which I call “backup” but it seems this doesn’t necessarily duplicate them, which I would prefer, so any of the open tabs that were previously bookmarked risk being removed from the original bookmarked folder, without my noticing, and I am therefore reluctant to delete the backup folder without checking that it doesn’t contain the only bookmark of a page.

When I came back to syncing the bookmarks, how do I avoid them getting scrambled again?

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

Okay, so I decided to sync my Firefox from my laptop with my work computer. I wasn't thinking about it also making all my passwords available on my work computer, which I do not want. I thought just signing out and using the browser 'un synced' would mean the passwords weren't available, but nope. While signed out, if click into passwords I can still see them all. So my question: If I delete the passwords from here (signed out) on my work computer, will it also delete them from my laptop browser (that is signed in)?

I have a laptop that I used from 2012 to 2015, and sometimes I start it up in order to check my Firefox history and find some URL that I visited once. Today when I tried that, I couldn't get the history. Ctrl+Shift+H didn't work, and when I hit the History menu, the option "Show All History" was gray. What should I do?

I opened the profile folder and saw that there's a big file called places.sqlite, which I think is the history file.

I did set up Sync once, though it didn't seem to do anything -- the history was still what it was when i stopped using that laptop. But I notice today that if I start to type in the address bar a URL that I have used recently on my present laptop, then it suggests the whole URL. In other words, it knows what I've been doing recently on my present laptop.
