Hello wadoods,

Would you try to sign in using these :

https://accounts.firefox.com/signin

https://accounts.firefox.com/settings

Does that work  ?

Using the given links I can sign in, but that doesn't let me sign in to the opened browser. Its this page where I can't sign in: about:preferences?entrypoint=menupanel#sync. I have all bookmarks and history against this email Id on firefox browser and need them ASAP.

That address leads to the same page as this one :

about:preferences#sync

If you can sign in to your account using the links I gave you earlier (or the addresses mentioned here), then I really don't understand what the problem is that your facing (I'm sorry ....)

I will call for help.

You don't need to sign in to use the browser.

Is the problem with signing into sync, sync not working? Something else?
