Hello,

Since 3-4 days, Sync no longer synchronizes any elements, from one device to another i no longer have access to my passwords saved in Lockwise or my shared tabs. I tried to disconnect all my devices then reconnect, i "forced" synchro, i installed the Lockwise Android app on my phone but but the sync runs in a vacuum so the app doesnt seem to download my data & credentials...

What can i do more to recover my data or restore sync ?

If there is, there's an issue on my device as in the selection of things to have synchronized I don't see "Tabs". The only workaround I can use is to Send (Share menu) a tab collection to a device. Which actually works well. It's much slower and requires the pages to be loaded but still...

Up until recently I was using a 11 year old laptop that was slowing dying. I was finally able to acquire a new computer and get it up and running just before an accident (as if out of a comedy movie - the roommate's cat knocked a full bowl of cereal onto the old laptop) effectively destroyed the old machine. Thankfully, Firefox Sync meant that everything I had been working on appeared when I got the new machine fully functional...until I logged on to Firefox this evening to find my Synced Tabs empty with just a "Want to see your tabs from other devices here? Connect Another Device" message.

The old device is toast...I don't know if it will even turn on again, much less function enough to sign into Firefox. Synced Tabs was also working just fine for a solid week until it just up and disappeared. Is there some way to restore these? I know it's my fault for relying/expecting Sync to always be there and not backing up the links I had open immediately, and this is a mistake I won't make again...but I'd really love to not lose everything I had open.

Thank you very much in advance for any help or suggestions.

I purchased a new device, but the bookmarks are not syncing like it has on prior devices. I have confirmed all setting are exactly as they were previously. No matter what I try, I can't get my bookmarks to join me on my new device. Is this a known bug?

Hi, I have a little annoying problem. Whenever I delete a bookmark, it is instantly restored back to the bottom of the list. Deleting it second time usually keeps it deleted. I assume this is some kind of a fault with the sync, but I do not want to disable syncing - I just want it to stop restoring bookmarks that I specifically deleted. Is there anything that I can do about this?

Hello. I tried to carry my opened tabs from old device firefox to the new one's firefox. I logged in on both devices, I indicated to sync tabs and bookmarks, then tapped "sync now". Then I found bookmarks from my old device on new one, but not tabs. What I do wrong? Or may be I understand wrong this function of sync, while I expect just carry my all tabs at once?
