I want to install Firefox on my new iPad but I don't know my password and I don;'want to lose all of the bookmarks I have on my computer by creating a new acco

Posted

When I began using Firefox over 25 years ago I did not write down passwords or maybe one was not required. Now I have many bookmarks on my Frefox mac computer screen that will be necessary for me to have when I go to Europe next month. I want to install Firefox on my new iPad. I keep getting stuck in a loop that send me to the app store and then send me back to the first screen without ever letting me download and install on my iPad. Really I just want to open my Firefox account on my new Ipad without having to lose all of my 25 years of valuable bookmarks. I could not hope to begin to find them again.

You need to get your account details for firefox and for your Apple id. Unfortunately if you want to access your accounts you need to keep records of your account details.
