Hello,

I have 3 different profiles and I'd like to have a visual indication of the currently active profile. I've found that using themes is the best option (a red theme for production, green for test, grey for default) but I can't prevent Firefox Sync to sync the active theme between my profiles.

I have set both services.sync.prefs.sync.extensions.activeThemeID and services.sync.prefs.sync.lightweightThemes to false and restarted all my Firefox profiles.

After a while, all windows/profiles are synced to the same theme.

Are those settings really read by Firefox Sync ? I'm on Windows 10, Firefox 91.10.0esr (32-bit)

Thanks in advance for your help !

I recently got a chromebook and the firefox sync is not working on it. For "last synced" it gives the last time I tried to refresg it but nothing syncs up. I've had it for a few hours and since it's via google play I beleive it's technically the Android version.

OK I have been trying to go 100% Firefox for just a few months but with privacy and security as primary directive. It would be wonderful to just be in ine well moderated browser ecosystem and actually being able to have my preferences, interest and personal information centralized with eventual goal of digitally divorcing tech companies from my personal data. I still have to use a lot of different devies with varying OS and it literally took me two years to help Apple fix an AppleId problem. Now that I have that sorted out I have been hoping to move away from gmail entirely and eventually have my own mailserver but using icloud now for macs and pcs.


At a minimum it seems like even after forced manual I have not properly sync an imac with windows 10 PC. So to keep it simple I stay there but this morning when I typed into Firefox on my iMac its was google search not Duckduckgo. Not only have I synced it in firefox but icloud should be redudant and I had removed google from list of potential search engines. There seems to be some way for a hostile takeover of these settings and google connstant agressive intrusions asking for data is not just wrong or annoying its simply impossible to not have facebook or google track me beyond california digital privacy standards. The worst offender may be youtube. I want to fix the browser and sync my stuff. But I am also looking for extensions that will help me do that better.

I am pretty thorough and now just want to learn more and would like to believe one can have a semblance of privacy but it seems like it will be an adversarial experience when the companies that do can rollback privacy with clever tv ads. The 'providers' clearly do not give hoot about rules, preferences and laws designed to protect people's rights.. That is what is particulary frustrating. It is not a fair fight but a good one. I guess what I am wondering is if there are specific modules you could add to detect maybewhen an event like change in search engine occurs and whether logs may exist as to how or why the change was made. Even if it was an accidental quick through a popup in chromium or edge where I was always being cued to come back to Chrome. Logging out doesnt always seem to work so i tried syncing with and chrome with more or less same results. Very little actual control or at least a tendency to revert back to the data miners preferences over mine. I want to help stop that.

I'm working on a new computer, as my work laptop is being upgraded to Windows 11. In the meantime, I have logged into Firefox, but none of the login info that I had previously saved is available. I can still see it on my mobile browser, but not on this new laptop.

Am I just missing a step?

I know there's [[an article|https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/sync-custom-preferences#w_sync-custom-preferences]] on how to sync custom preferences. I wanted to sync my toolbar customizations and some other preferences like disabling disk caching. And I don't even have other firefox instances, instead I just want to sync only on one device, so that I can continue the same setup when I signin later on the same device.

I've tried to add services.sync.prefs.sync.browser.uiCustomization.state, "services.sync.prefs.sync.browser.cache.disk.enable" and set it to true. But it doesn't work. What am I missing? No one seems to address this. May I am missing something.

I used the same account with two computers. I always keep my account in sync. Actually, they do not. My previous notebook has a series of bookmarks, but the bookmarks in the latter one is exactly different. It seems like two accounts, but I log in with the same account. Miracly, when I log the same account with my phone, the bookmarks in my phone is sync with my previous notebook I don't know how to solve it and appreciate your answer.

我有两台笔记本,登录同一个账户时是不同步的。两个笔记本的书签页完全各顾各,但我登录的是一个账户且一直保持着同步。当我用手机登录同一个账户的时候,手机会有第一个笔记本同步;第二个笔记本就好像完全是新的账户。 我不知道怎么解决这个问题,希望专业的你的回复。

Hey guys,

I transitioned over to a new Macbook. After installing Firefox I opted to log in to my "sync account" in order to retrieve all my bookmarks, add-ons, saved passwords etc. that I was using on my previous Macbook. On the old Mac, I synced the Firefox profile data one last time and formatted the device. Now when I log in with the account, no data gets synced. There definitely was an account as when I followed the sign-in process, it didn't ask me to create a new account. It simply asked for my email, followed by my password and the One-Time-Password that was sent to my email.

As a test, I signed out of this profile on the new Mac after not getting any results and tried to sign in with another Firefox profile. It immediately started retrieving that profile's data (I.e add-ons started getting installed). I cancelled that sync to not fill the browser with that data. But logging into the troublesome account again, still no data gets retrieved.

I really need to retrieve that profile with all my data. Any assistance would be much appreciated.

I have Firefox installed everywhere. On my main Windows 10 machine Firefox is forgetting Firefox Multi-Account Containers containers. I also have Firefox Nightly installed on the same machine, and it's giving me no issues. Sync is on, version 8.0.7, tried uninstalling, deleting Firefox, and I wonder if there's a fix or if this is a larger problem.

Whenever I sign into Firefox, all my themes, add-ons/extensions are added via Firefox Sync. That's fine, but the problem I have is that whenever I sign into any Firefox browser, an old theme I used to have that I no longer have on my account keeps coming back, and I've tried to find solutions to this issue, but none have had this kind of issue. It may be similar to issues those have had, or currently have, but I can't seem to do anything to remedy this issue.

Keep in mind that this is not a Firefox browser issue, it is an account issue.

I'd be deeply grateful to any assistance you may have for me.
