I have Firefox multi containers added to two Windows 10 laptops. Everything except multi containers is syncing. The last laptop I added after resetting that computer, updating Windows, and reinstalling Firefox. That last FF installation is showing the default containers. I use a lot of containers so would rather not set them up again. I have reinstalled FF a couple of times on the latest computer but didn't solve it. Suggestions please?

Hello! I’m using Firefox on 3 laptops and 1 mobile and I specified to sync only bookmarks. I noticed today that Firefox suggests URLs I have typed on one of my laptops when I start typing on my phone. Weirdly, history seems to be limited to my phone activity and my Sync options specify to focus on bookmarks.

Anyway, I am under the impression that Firefox synchronises more than what I asked. Is there something I am misunderstanding?

Hello,

I'm using firefox sync with an own sync server.

Since a few weeks the synchronization of tabs doesn't work right. I use five devices. On my Macbook, the iPhone and the iPad mini I can see and reach the tab-sync of these three devices.

On another iPad and an Linux-PC, wich I added at last, I can see the tab-sync of all five devices.

How can I force the first three devices to sync the tabs of all five devices? I did alread several steps of testing and trying, like manual synchronization or remove and adding again all devices to the account.

It would be great to find some help! Thanks in advance and best regards - Daniel

I've been able to sync my firefox account on a university computer until 2 weeks ago. Now when i login to the university computer (in the classroom where I teach), my account "logs in" but nothing syncs (no bookmarks or passwords).

I haven't changed anything with my account. How can I access my synced info on this University computer?

I have "sync: addons" enabled in my sync settings (on all relevant devices).

1. Neither uBlock Origin nor its settings appeared on my Android tablet (I can't recall if this worked on my other computer, but I'm 90% sure it did). Does this not work for syncing between mobile and Linux browsers (two Ubuntu machines)?

2. I tried using uBlock Origin's "Enable cloud storage support" (https://github.com/gorhill/uBlock/wiki/Cloud-storage) to move my site whitelist, but it appears to have a different bucket across my Linux and Android devices. I turned it off again after attempting to sync both (Firefox sync) and then get uBlock Origin to read its settings from there.

3. Now that I've migrated my settings manually, I no longer need the cloud sync data from uBlock Origin. Unfortunately, there's no apparent setting in my browser's (either Ubuntu or Android) Account menu to view or edit synced data. Is some amount of unnecessary data now floating there forever, unable to be accessed?

4. If there IS a method to view the contents of sync, how do I find it? Back when I used Chrome, it had a nasty habit of duplicating stuff at the server and occasionally pushing it back to duplicate all my bookmarks. I'd like to see what I've got stored and what (if any) storage quota I'm near. I have an absurd amount of stuff I need to keep synchronized between machines and I'd like warning if I'm using it inefficiently (see: undeletable data from that addon, small though it is) or if there are duplicate entries.

Until about a week ago sync worked fine to my knowledge and I could look at saved logins on my Note 8 which were sync'd with my W10 desktop. Now FF sync on Note 8 will NOT update and show me saved logins and passwords, pressing the button does NOTHING. It doesn't even open a new page, absolutely nothing. My bookmarks will sync with desktop but NOT passwords/logins.

It is weird because when I go to a website and login, my Note8 does show suggested logins like it always has but in FF you cannot look at saved logins any longer?

Also noticed that under Note 8 accounts and backup, FF is NOT even listed as an account and I thought it used to be listed there.

I know that when I changed FF pw on my Note 8 it deleted the password/logins. But seeing as how they are still showing up on my desktop, obviously they are still saved in FF
