HI please test doing it this way please : SAFE MODE

In Firefox Safe mode these changes are effective:

  • all extensions are disabled (about:addons)
  • default theme is used (no persona)
  • userChrome.css and userContent.css are ignored (chrome folder)
  • default toolbar layout is used (file: localstore-safe.rdf)
  • Javascript JIT compilers are disabled (prefs: javascript.options.*jit)
  • hardware acceleration is disabled (Options > Advanced > General)
  • plugins are not affected
  • preferences are not affected

TEST''''is issue still there ?

If it is not there then work on finding out which Extension is the problem and disable it.

If above does not work : please, can you open (Copy/Paste) about:sync-log into the location bar and Enter to see if there are recent error logs available. You can upload a recent log if the log is too big to put in a reply. https://pastebin.mozilla.org/ NOTE : At Bottom please change to save for a Month.

HY,

DO YOU have get or not my logs ?

any solution here ?

//pastebin/mozilla.org is capable of uploading the total contents of one Sync error log, but after submitting a "paste" you need to copy the resulting URL and paste it here so that we can view your "paste".

https://pastebin.mozilla.org/ just brings up an empty page ready for acceptance of the text file.

hy the-edmeister

Thank you very much to your support / response...

i copy and past the my big log in the pastebin firefox space but i get follow message:

Query failure: Data too long for column 'code' at row 1

wat is mean this msg ?

BTW i paste too a more small log :

https://pastebin.mozilla.org/?dl=9090222

THANX AGAIN !!

more options

First off, that is a lot more than the text of one sync error-log/

Everything including this is "extra" to the actual sync-log data.

***************************************************************
error-sync-1531393433746.txt
***************************************************************

That "extra" information is probably what pastebin had a problem with accepting. If the hyperlinked error-sync-1531393433746.txt line would have been clicked in the about:sync-log tab, the text information would be opened right inside in Firefox, and that is what should be copied and then pasted to pastebin. It looks to be that you may have open that error file in WordPad and copied that, based upon how the https://pastebin.mozilla.org/?dl=9090222 was presented to me and with that extra info added, with may have turned it into a "Rich-Text" file.

This is how your error log should appear at pastebin, or as close I I could make it from the text file I saw from your hyperlink. https://pastebin.mozilla.org/9090223 That error log is time stamped as GMT: Thursday, July 12, 2018 11:03:49.173 AM


As far as all the errors detected, I have no idea what caused all those errors. We're going to need a Mozilla developer who works with Sync to understand what's going on, and that probably won't be until Monday USA time zones, or late Sunday for the one I "know" of who is 12 hours ahead of where I live in the Central Time zone.

I am going to add the escalate tag to this thread to help as far as I can right now.

The log at https://pastebin.mozilla.org/?dl=9090222 is showing a network error between you and the sync servers. I'll need to see the other log before I could offer any ideas, but in the mean time, what country are you trying to access sync from?

Note that this can be caused by using a Proxy/VPN

Quote: i use a vpn and as security i have just the windows 10 x64 default / build in firewall and windows defender only.

hello cor-el ,

yes im behind a vpn. server may block some vpns i figure... Thank you to your response.

I provided an edited copy of the OP's first sync-log that was incorrectly submitted to Pastebin, after editing out the extraneous text that was added. For some reason my Win7 wanted to open that file in WordPad, which I have set to open RichText files, not plain text files. https://pastebin.mozilla.org/9090223


cor-el, I looks like that browser was able to contact the Sync server and to login to the server. Things went south a bit after that, form what I could read and understand.


mark, thanks for responding so quickly to either my PM or my adding the "escalate" tag to this thread. Service over and above my expectations. LOL

HY,

without the VPN may work...

Mozilla services do not block any VPNs intentionally, but if we knew that was the problem we could investigate. As things stand now, there's zero information we can use to try and help solve your problem.
