I did a system restore because I thought an update had messed up some things, specifically I could not sign in to a site I use regularly because I would get a black screen and a message stating that "Northern Tool" is not currently available in your country. I had been using a vpn but it was set for a U.S. city and both I and the website are in the U.S. also. After system restore for a time only 2 days prior, my Firefox was apparently removed from my computer and all history of it. Now I am having trouble re-installing and using sync to get back my saved stuff. This is all on another PC with Windows 7.

Hello dear Firefox community,

I'd like to sync my Firefox of my Windows 10 and Ubuntu 20.04.1. The only option available for me in the sync menu is to scan a QR-code which does not work in dual boot system. Do you have any ideas what to do? Thank you very much already! -Jo

I do not intend to sync Firefox on my phone or iPad. My computer is the best and only place where I use Firefox. It seems completely unneccessary for you to keep sending me notices about that as if I were a totally new user every time I log in on my Firefox. I prefer using Firefox, my guide on Internet, and I use it all day. I have already insured you I have the latest version. Is that okay for you too? /Irma Ridbäck now 80 yrs!

I recently made an account for Firefox so I could use Sync. Whenever I press the three lines at the top left corner it displays my email, for whatever reason. I share my screen often and I wouldn't want to accidentally leak my email and/or any other sensitive information.

Is it possible to make Firefox display my username instead of my email, or make it go away completely without losing functionality? Thanks in advance!

Deleted previous account, created new.

Idiotically, I can access new account in Chrome but not in FF. FF continually displays deleted account email address despite clearing cache, and when I attempt to "use a different account" - the new active account - the result is as in the screenshot. It does not accept the address.

Sync and pair QR codes cut off at the bottom, can't scan them with phone on Linux

I am using the latest MX Linux Distro and Firefox 85. I am trying to setup sync with my phone so I can access all my bookmarks and such on my phone. It pops up with a QR code to scan in the Firefox on the phone but it would never scan. After a closer look at the QR code, it is cut off at the bottom and there seems to be nothing I can do to get around that. Endless searches make it out that I am the only one having this problem.

I don't know if this is a bug in Firefox, a bug in the interface, a bug somewhere else, or what. I just want to make it work. Thank you.

I installed Firefox onto my third device, and it synced my data, including my extensions. The only thing is, they don't show up in my tool bar like they do on my other devices. I tried several different things, but the icons for the extensions don't even show up in the customization tab. They don't autofill or work at all, despite saying that they are installed and active.

Hello,

is it possible to have individual sync settings for different instances of Firefox? In my case I would like to sync passwords only between my desktop instances and not to my android instance. But every time when I deselect the password sync option on Android it is also deactivated on all other instances. Having the passwords synced to Android is, in my opinion, a security issuse since the Android version of Firefox does not require any unlock procedure (password, pin, pattern, fingerprint, ...) before the stored paswords and log-in data can be used.

Best regards, Heiko
