Hi! For some reason accounts.firefox.com is not displaying in english on my desktop, but in Norwegian, and specifically nynorsk to make things even weirder. On another PC it's displaying in english as I want it to be. My Firefox is set to english (although apparently has Norwegian (bokmål) installed which I can't remove cause the remove button is grayed out...), and my preferred languages for displaying pages are set to english only.

I have a new mobile device. I already reinstalled firefox twice,and even though it says the sync has been successful,I cannot send links to it from the desktop browser. In firefox view (attached screenshot),it says that I'm only 33% through getting sync,even though both the mobile browser and desktop browser say that I'm synced.

Logged out of my firefox account on a laptop and wonder if I can recover those tabs via firefox sync on a different computer?

Well title says it all but for more context I have 2 laptops. One of them I am currently using and the other I sold so what I did was I logged out of firefox and did not press the check box that asked if I wanted to delete data. I believe this laptop was synced to my fire fox account.

After logging out of firefox and backing up all my personal files I used windows reset to reset my pc and to completely wipe the laptop of my information so I can ship it out to the buyer. With that said I was wondering if I am able to obtain the tabs from my time using the laptop. When I go to firefox sync I don't see the tabs I had open from my old laptop.

I recently had to do a fresh reinstall of my Windows OS and was in the process of reinstalling and logging back into my Firefox browser and account. I quickly found out that I could not remember my password for the account. After trying multiple potential passwords, I was not able to find the correct one and resorted to password reset.

I reset my account and now lost all the bookmarks that were saved to the account. The odd thing is that I still have my bookmarks available on my mobile firefox browser, under Bookmarks -> Desktop Bookmarks -> Bookmarks Toolbar.

Is there any way to bring back my previous bookmarks the way they were before the Windows OS reinstall? Especially given that my mobile Firefox still retains those bookmarks?

Thank you.

For some reason, desktop FF keeps asking for syncing with mobile when I'm pretty sure it is, as I can still use some feature, though some dont work like sending tabs. So when I go to firefox on mobile, making a new tab and using the camera to scan the QR code. It doesn't work. When I tried it a few days ago, it told me something went wrong, and now it says that I'm using my iOS camera app instead of the FF app. Hopefully I explained it well.

I've seen nothing that specifically says this can or cannot be done. It makes sense to me, a non-tech person, though. Why -- or how if it's now possible -- can I sync certain files I select between 2 or more computers? For example, I'd like my "Documents" to be the same on my computers. But I see no reference to doing that. Sub-text: IF that were possible, will Firefox automatically sync so that the resulting file is the most recent version (assuming identical file names)? OR, will Firefox bring all individual files if they are different in any way even if they have the same file name?

Thank you.

I recently switched from Chrome which had the Reading List feature which you could view on the Chrome Android app as well as Chrome PC.

I recently figured out Firefox has a similar thing called Collections but I can't find out where it's located on the Firefox PC application.

Or do I have to do something to sync it with my PC?
