Hello, I have two laptops, an old one with a synced firefox, and a new one where I want to get all the passwords, tabs, theme, settings and extensions. The OS is the same (NixOS, Linux).

I can successfully log-in and enable sync on the new laptop: it's possible for me to see the list of tabs from the other device, open and sync those tabs, but other things are not synced or synced partially.

For example: of the 30+ passwords on the old device, only 15 are present in the new device; no theme or extension is synced, bookmarks seems to be properly synced.

I don't know where to get more info about the sync (besides the about:sync-log page, which shows no logs), so I can't really tell what's going on. Indeed, nothing changes if I press the "Sync now" button.

I also tried refreshing firefox or creating a new profile from scratch and sync that again, but to no avail. Do you have any suggestion? Thanks

Sending tab to mobile (Android) doesn't work; sync does

Hi.

I use ESR (78.13) for Linux on two laptops, and the current version for Android (91.3). Sync is enabled on all these devices. I just ran a test: I sent a tab from one laptop to another and back, and it worked immediately. Sending a tab to mobile fails; no notifications, nor errors. However, I can sync tabs accross devices with no problem. I can also send the URL via NPC and Bluetooth, so it is not any of the laptops, nor the device that is failing.

I have noticed that on Android, when I start the browser the Sync option is set to "Sign in to sync"; if I tap there, it shows my sync account info; it doesn't ask for my username nor password. Perhaps this is related. Please help!

P.S. I looked at this question but it is archived: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1284364. I have the exact same issue.

Please continue here: [/questions/1347815]
How can i automatically sign in with my Firefox account in multiple Firefox profiles? I have like 100 Firefox profiles that i use for different topics and would love to sync them all at once, i was looking for a file that stored the login approved for my Firefox account info to just copy paste that one file in all of my Firefox profiles, but can't really find it.

This is a problem because every single time i have to introduce my email and my password and sometimes it also asks for an email verification code :( .

I will sign into my firefox account when on a new computer to access my bookmarks/passwords etc. When I sign out, after I am done using the shared computer, my bookmarks and passwords remain.

I even uninstalled firefox, but when I reinstalled it the next time I used the computer, all of my bookmarks and passwords were again available without signing in.

How do I remove these from the shared computer without deleting my firefox account?

Take a look at the screenshots. The second device is called "Firefox on HUAWEI LIO-L29", but I renamed it to "Mate 30 Pro" (screenshot 2).

Why is the device name displayed not "Mate 30 Pro", as in the case of "Macbook D14"? I renamed the device in Firefox settings a few days ago.

I have many duplicate entries in the "Send Tab to Device" menu, which I believe are from old installs. This occurs on both desktop version of Firefox and Firefox Android.

The problem is they do not appear in https://accounts.firefox.com/settings#connected-services so I cannot remove them. Only the actual devices I am using appear there.

Any ideas?

Seperate accounts for work / private email issue

Hi team! I´ve been using my private account also as an office account for my work laptop for over 1.5 years now. Now I wanted to split these things and create a second account via following routine:

primary account was mp.*§$%@gmail.com I added my office email as secondary email: mwo*"§$@company.com I changed secondary to primary email and deleted the mp.*§$%@gmail.com from the account

Now i wanted to create a new account with mp.*§$%@gmail.com for my private things but I only get the login screen to type in my password, so there is no chance to create a new one with my private email.

Could you please give me any hints on this?

Thanks in advance!

PS: yesy the private email with smth like "+firefox" would work, but I want to keep things clean and memorable.
