Restoring history from a second device with Sync

Hello,

IT support wiped my browser history on Laptop A. I also have Laptop B, which hasn't been used in a couple of weeks, and which is connected to Laptop A through Sync. Ideally I'd like to import the history from Laptop B to Laptop A, as this would be an almost total restore.

Laptop A losing its history is the most recent activity though, and I'm worried that as soon as I open Firefox on Laptop B, Sync will overwrite B's history with the (now blank) history from A.

So, is it possible to get B's data onto A through Sync, without A wiping B? Can I generate a backup from B through other means without Sync overwriting it?

Many thanks,

Charlotte

Hi all, I just purchased a new computer, and the first thing that I did was download Firefox onto it. However, I've become frustrated over the last few days, as even though I immediately signed into my Firefox account upon opening the browser, when I close it and then open it back up later on everything is signed out, including my Firefox profile. How do I make it so that every time I open my browser, it is already signed in, and I don't have to type in my username and password over and over again. Thanks in advance for your help!

Hi :) Long story short, my laptop broke and I had to reinstall windows and all my data got lost. When I installed firefox and synced nothing happened. In synced devices it's still showing that I'm connected (it's showing 2 devices for the same laptop). Is there any way that I can restore my bookmarks?

Firefox 80 and own sync server

Hi, after upgrading to FF 80 (on Linux Mint Ulyana and Windows 10), syncing bookmarks via my own sync server doesn't work any more. It seems that FF doesn't store my login into my ff account. After entering my credentials (and usually entering the six-digit code mailed to me), i get a short success information, but immediately afterwards, in the menu symbol, there's a yellow warning sign again, telling me to login again into my ff account. I think it's not a matter with my sync server since on my corporate pc (with FF < 80), syncing still works. Additionally, i didn't change anything regarding the sync server, i've just upgraded FF to version 80.

See also this reddit thread this reddit thread (workaround proposed there works only for android version of FF, i think...)

See additionally bugzilla #1663249.

So, what to do except downgrading FF to a lower version where syncing still works?

I have a Firefox account, so my settings are shred across devices. But there is one thing that is a pain in the neck. I use a local start page, i.e. one stored on the local disk of each device I use. But this page is stored in a different location on each device. When I set the start page on one device, the setting doesn't work on my other devices. Suggestion: Don't sync the start page if it is a local html file. Or offer a setting to disable syncing of just this one setting.

I've recently refreshed Firefox V80.0 on my PC and in the process lost my stored logins and passwords. However they are still available in my iPad and Android phone in both Firefox browser and Lockwise. I've tried syncing to get them back to the PC with no success. If I go to "Logins and Passwords" in the browser menu it opens the Lockwise page and asks me to log in to that. I just get a page saying "no synced logins found" even after syncing both the PC and the mobiles.

i just downloaded the new version onto my macbook pro, and have lost all my bookmarks and other settings which is very annoying. It wants me to sync with another device but I DON'T WANT to do that !! how can I avoid this and restore my settings/bookmarks etc or barring that, dump the new version and go back to the old one which worked fine which hopefully still has all my settings ?

Hello, I just joined Firefox Sync today because I got a new computer. I am in the process of moving all my info to the new machine. I set up an account on Firefox Sync for both computers and checked all the boxes. It appears that my history, bookmarks, etc all synced properly but when I go to the Firefox Lockwise page on my new computer it only has 2 saved logins, whereas my current computer has over 200 saved. I did a manual sync and refresh but no more logins have populated that page. Is there another way to transfer those logins? I really really don't want to have to manually log in again to all those websites. Is there something I'm missing? Thanks in advance!

I set up Firefox sync two days ago. Opened my Iphone today & it went to sync screen and asked to sync with my Mac laptop computer. I proceeded, assuming it was part of set up, although I had done that step two day ago. After my phone read the QR code, my computer screen refreshed and said, essentially, "you are now syncing with Oxnard, Kalifornia" etc. I am located in the Oxnard area, but was alarmed at the misspelling of California with a "K". Is this a hack and should I remove sync? Typo? Anyone else have this issue? Would greatly appreciate any advice you have - thanks!

Thanks for your kind and prompt reply, but I'm still confused. I don't want to see the sync page at all. I simply want to click on the Firefox icon on my dock, see the search box, and fill it in with what I want to find. How can I arrange that? Once I get this straightened out, I will be happy to use some of Firefox's extensions.

Thanks in advance!
