why do i need a recovery pass to sync my bookmarks??????

Posted

I need to use my bookmarks, even if i don't have my PC close to me. It's totally pointless to impose to all users the recovery key system. I don't need full encrypted data, i need fast and easy access!!!!!! I need my bookmarks accessible to me everywhere I am!!! "print and keep the recovery key in a safe place" my ass.... Obviously it's in a safe place, Three damned thousand kilometers away from me!!!!

The only option i have it's to erase all my data and start again. Yes, i will start again, but using another browser!!!!!

I'm so pissed of with that, i'm leaving Firefox for good.

If someone else has access to the computer where Sync already is set up, they can generate a pair code for you to add the device you're using where you are now. See: How do I add a device to Firefox Sync?

If you want to access saved data from any random device, then as you've discovered, Sync is not the right service to use for that. You could use a third party service like Xmarks, or if you don't need two-way sync, export your bookmarks to an HTML file and host it somewhere convenient to you like your Dropbox, Google Docs, a website you control, or as an email attachment.
