Firefox Nightly Will NOT Sign in To Synch

I've been using Firefox Nightly for Android and Firefox for Android for years without issue. I've left Nightly at build 68.5a1 as it has several features that later bulds removed. I sync across all my mobile devices but NOT with my desktop. When a website requires a newer browser version to run, then I switch to plain Firefox.

Today Nightly would NOT open. It opened and pointed to an offline file. I noticed it was marked by "///". I'm sorry I didn't take a screenshot or note the file.

Reading several posts, I removed Nightly, purged the cash and purged the data. Then I reinstalled Nightly from the apk file I saved. While the install went without a hitch, it will NOT permit me to sign in to synch the data saved in all my other devices. It just spins as this image shows.

I read a post indicating a direct url for sign in and tried it. But it only worked for Firefox and NOT Nightly.

How do I resolve this?

Hello,

My name is Nyayesh Abdollahi and I have a suggestion for Firefox; I've earlier been unable to access an account I created because the e-mail connected to it had been deleten.

This seems to me a proper weakness in Firefox and perhaps should be ameliorated...?

I just wanted to let you know this because I do think it's the best browser around.

If the problem has already been adressed, my apologies.

Kind regards, Nyayesh Abdollahi

Hello,

I created an account in Firefox with my old e-mail; nyayesh_abdollahi@fripost.org.

However, I have since deleted that e-mail and also forgotten the login password for that Firefox-account; therefore, I can't login to it albeit it exists.

I'm not sure how this works but I do believe the best way to resolve the matter is through the deletion of the aforementioned account.

Kindly, Nyayesh Abdollahi

Hello, I recently changed my password for my Firefox account and now I was unable to enter my new password to log in. I logged out of my account to see if it would work, but to no avail, and now I am signed out completely with the all my attempts to sign back in resulting in a forever-loading page.

Installing another version of Firefox does not work, as it tries to redirect me to the Google Play Store (which Amazon devices do not support). The method I tried to use is in the following link: https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/all/#product-android-nightly. If this is the way to do so, would I have to uninstall my current version of Firefox?

Thank you.

Can't get 2fa codes on authenticator app

Hi, just switched phones, setting up FF on my new phone. Went to establish a sync. Scanned the QR code on the desktop. Approved on the phone. Now it says the other device, i.e., my desktop must approve. The desktop wants a 6 digit 2fa code from my authenticator app. That's nice, but it is a new phone and I don't have FF set up in the authenticator app yet. I have a bunch of backup codes, but none is a 6-digit code. There is no alternative method suggested (like texts, emails).

Perhaps I'm missing something simple, since I've done this before, although years back. But how do I get my phone in sync without 2fa codes from an authenticator app? Thanks in advance.

I have a long standing Firefox account - this one. I have also recently joined Firefox relay, using a different email - the one I most want to be able to mask - however I am trying to link these two accounts, for many reasons but also because I am trying to add my other email as a backup/recovery to this account, but I keep being denied because it's an 'existing account'. Please help. (Also an unrelated but very unhelpful thing: Mozilla websites, and ONLY Mozilla websites, are currently rendering in plain html and it's *really* confusing and unhelpful. I've killed all my as blockers and it doesn't seem to be any of them. Any advice?)

I was using it without issue last night, casting screen on chromecast. This morning it wouldn't open, just opens and closes immediately so I uninstalled and reinstalled it through the Play Store.

I'm trying to sign in but it doesn't recognize my authentication apps (Microsoft, then disabled it and tried Google) or the account recovery keys. So neither Microsoft or Google authenticator apps worked, and both sets of backup authentication codes failed.

I disabled 2FA but it still asks for the code (still doesn't accept them).

Firefox on pc works fine.

Good morning - I wanted to set up two-factor authentication with your browser for security reasons. A code comes up that one uses with one's phone. I connected with it, but I couldn't finish setting up the 2FA. Here's the problem: My Samsung Note 20 Ultra has fingerprint scanning on the screen. Since I bought it, I tried using the fingerprint feature, but it is a beast to get my prints scanned and then it can hardly ever scan my print successfully. So I gave up using fingerprints altogether. So I scan your code, and it wants me to do the whole fingerprinting thing with my phone in order to set it up. It doesn't give me the option to use the security that I did choose to use with my phone. Please advise how I can get 2FA without doing all of this. Thanks. Ritva

Hi, I have a problem with remembering the login details on the account - the point is that everything works fine on the browser on the computer, while on the browser on the phone (android) it sees the login details, but after selecting it, it does not complete the login fields as if there were no such data and they are, after checking the tab "saved login details" and finding the login, I manually copy the data and paste it on the page, then I log in ok. Why does the login not work with saved logins? Has anyone had or has the same problems? P.S Synchronization is done, the browser is reinstalled, it's the same on another phone
