I am signed into Firefox on desktop and mobile using the same email. I've enabled sync and have synced. Yet my passwords from the mobile browser still don't show on desktop. And the instructions to scan a QR code don't work because they state to click the "sync and save data" option on Android, which doesn't exist for me. How do I sync?

Sync open tabs from old PC to new PC not working

I've read all the suggestions but can't get Firefox Sync to transfer the open tabs from my old PC to my new one. I'm signed in on both to the same account, both are on my LAN with a wired ethernet connection, and I've checked every box in the "what to sync" field. When I click "Sync Now" the icon spins for a few seconds like it's doing something but the tabs from the old machine do not appear on the new one as I expected them to. Nor can I get them by closing and doing a Restore Session.

This seems pretty straightforward and how most users would expect it to work - am I missing something? If not, why isn't it working?

Sadly, I am now forced to leave firefox. My passwords are getting "forgotten" more and more each day. Did i get hacked? Few passwords like proton mail I don't actually have anywhere else. Auto-Backup of firefox seems to be of the same day as the original??? So it loses the data then saves it twice? who designed this? I'm angry, not at firefox/mozilla. angry at myself for putting my trust in the first place. Chromium doesn't sync so it leaves me with chrome FFS. Does someone has a magic wand to recover the lost data? login.json is same day as original so not an option.

Hello, I just bought a new laptop, and am trying to sync my firefox account.

The new laptop wouldn't accept my password. So I changed it to a new one.

It doesn't accept the new password either. And now it seems like firefox isn't allowing me to logout of my account either. What is going on with the passwords? I can't afford to reset everything and lose all of my data and log ins. They have been generated by firefox and are all randomly alfanumeric.

What am I to do?

Hi, when I had cleaned out all my bookmarjks duplicates (and they were many 50.000 accumulated through the years)on my Linuxmachine and turned on my Windows 10 machine they were all back. So my question is: what data is saved when syncing with Firefox sync? And I dont mean the different types you can choose between ,no I mean: when I change one thing on onea logged in firefox on one machine doesnt that change the status of, and in my example the bookmarks on the other machines? Or is it the other way around, namely: will the second machine with all the duplicate bookmarks change the sync-"base" so they will be back on all other machines again? Very confusing especially if youre logged into moire machine then one at the same time. Please answer me, I really need to clean up my firefox's accumulated duplicates pretty quick. Sincerely Wal

Firefox 99.0 asking for master password twice

In security I have use primary password enabled. I have sync enabled. When I first open Firefox, the "Please Enter your Primary Password" dialog appears twice. At first I thought I was repeatedly miskeying the first time. But then I noticed that if I drag the modal dialog box, then a second box pops up behind the first. In fact, some times, I can start typing when that second dialog appears. As in the case today when I just caught it. Please see screen shot attached.

FireFox 99.0 Windows Enterprise 10 OS Build: 18363.2212 I am on a Private Browsing window when I see this error.

Please do what it takes to cause me to not have to enter the master password twice.

Thank you,

Is there a maximum number of tabs that can be synced? I have about 800 tabs on my old computer, but when I look at the synced tabs in the sidebar on the new computer, only about half of them are listed. The oldest 400 or so are missing.

And yes, I realize 800 tabs is insane. But that's another discussion. :)

Issue with Sync on PCs with same account and general speed of sync

Hi team, have reviewed few thread on Sync issue, but none was explicitly touching the issue I have. Running latest version on different PCs ( both Win10), using same account, I can't "send to" tabs among them. They are simply not in mutual device list. No problem to see mobile (Android here) devices in same account.

So, is this a recognized issue on PC with same account? I may just guest about HTTP "user-agent", same "display name" in Sync account and similar stuff in possible conflict, but better leave this on IT pros.


General issue is with speed of sync. If I open a tab, sync the device, then send to other device, sync that other too... and it's not instant there, even not after minutes. What could this be?

Though two questions, I thank for every reactions to them. BR Peter

I am switching jobs and want to sync my Firefox history from old work computer to new. Both run Windows. I changed the primary email associated with my account from the old work account to a new email. No problem. I synced the new email to my iphone no problem. Now im trying to download and sync Firefox to my new laptop. Running Windows and Im trapped in a crazy loop. I login with correct password to the new email and it asks for the authorization code and when I enter that, Firefox switches to the OLD email and asks for that password. I am not sure I have that password correct because i set the account up four years ago. Regardless, i cant sync my new laptop. But I was able to sync it on my iphone so it CAN be done with the email addy and password I am confident about. Please help.
