Hi, that is for using Sync. It is for Syncing 2 or more devices. It is not made for a backup service. So please stop trying to get it to work. If you do use it as a Backup Service you will end up loosing your data.

Sync does not take the place of backing up :

You also do not need a password to use Firefox.
