Hi, I have a question. Is it possible add a new feature to Firefox Sync that will allow user to synchronize only selected passwords? For example in Setting->Synchronize a new checkbox will appear on the list of elements to synchronize or it'll appear as a "subcheckbox" after user clicks "logins and passwords". After that user will be able to click a checkbox for every password separately.

Rebuilt PC - Firefox lost all sync data

Hi

I've had to rebuild my PC - I have logged back into Firefox only to find none of my Bookmarks or usernames etc have not sync'd back. Absolutely nothing has come down. I've run a manual sync - blank.

Looks like I've lost about 8 years of data, any help would be good. If sync is only between two devices and not kept in the cloud you should probably be warning users that this is the case.

Is there anything I can do to recover them ?

Sync and Firefox versions over GNU+Linux distros

Hi,

I'm using Firefox over various devices and systems.

For instance: - Firefox binary downloaded from Mozilla website and executed over Debian Testing - Firefox from Arch Linux official repositories in Arch systems

My doubt is: could this cause any problem with the Sync function? Or Sync has the flexibility to allow syncing between a wide specter of Firefox installations

For instance: Could I add Fennec from F-Droid to my LineageOS smartphone or Firefox-ESR from Debian repositories to my desktop machine, log in with my account in all of them and synchronize all the sessions without problems?

Thanks a lot in advance!, and let me know if I should add any technical information.

Kind regards!

I do t see any way to export my logins from mobile. It seems an egregious overlook to not have a way to do so without being on desktop, plenty of people don't have access to desktop utilities on a regular basis. Something like 30% of african American households don't have a computer or broadband internet at home, and their primary access to the internet will be mobile. To not be able to independently back up your logins without a desktop is bad.
