Is there a way in Firefox to have quicker access to saved logins than through the menu structure? The menus are four layers deep, which is frustrating as it is difficult to remember the route when only using the feature occasionally. Some websites don't respect the Firefox Password Manager, so it sometimes becomes necessary to manually find the credentials.

Is there any way to create a bookmark to the saved login section?

Is there perhaps an add-on?

Thanks for any answers.

Hi. I love firefox and have been using the app for the last 5 years.. I generally use the same firefox account on all my devices (laptop, android and iOS) and love the pocket recommendations on the homepage. I tried enabling it on my iOS device (iPhone 13 pro) but it’s not showing even when it’s turned on!! I reinstalled the app several times and enabled it to see if that fixes the issue but it’s still not resolved. Kindly help me with this because one of the main reasons why I’m using firefox is because of the pocket recommendations!!

Cheers!

Hello,

I have 3 different profiles and I'd like to have a visual indication of the currently active profile. I've found that using themes is the best option (a red theme for production, green for test, grey for default) but I can't prevent Firefox Sync to sync the active theme between my profiles.

I have set both services.sync.prefs.sync.extensions.activeThemeID and services.sync.prefs.sync.lightweightThemes to false and restarted all my Firefox profiles.

After a while, all windows/profiles are synced to the same theme.

Are those settings really read by Firefox Sync ? I'm on Windows 10, Firefox 91.10.0esr (32-bit)

Thanks in advance for your help !

All my available devices do not display on screen when I am in tab share mode. I receive Tab Sent notice when sending, but new tab doesn't show up on other device. When I sync my device it says sync complete, however nothing seems to syncs ever, tabs on browser don't sync with anything, but nothing different on other devices. Open tabs on one device do not migrate to other devices when Firefox browser is opened. New desktop pc does not show up as available device to sync with or send tabs to. All devices are signed in and synced yet nothing really syncs

Why is it necessary to authenticate Lockwise frequently on my 2 IOS devices? A dozen times in May and 6 times this month. It happens right when I need to use the app and this activity is delayed by having to authenticate and re-synch. Is something wrong or is this a "feature".

Thanks,

David

I recently got a chromebook and the firefox sync is not working on it. For "last synced" it gives the last time I tried to refresg it but nothing syncs up. I've had it for a few hours and since it's via google play I beleive it's technically the Android version.

Hi guys.

I'm wondering if it's possible to send tab from macOS Firefox to another device... I couldn't find any clue to achieve that, since that right click doesn't have the option to send tab throughout the devices like on windows.

Tks.

I've not been able to send a tab from my computer to Firefox for iOS for a while now. Also, tabs sent from the iOS device to the computer often don't show up until I manually sync the desktop browser a few times.

Troubleshooting steps I've tried: Update the iOS FF app Sign out of sync on the iOS app, Sign back in Check iOS notifications for FF, they're allowed.

I've noticed that it's never been 100% reliable over the past year or so that I've been using "send tab to:" features, but lately it's just not working whatsoever and it's a bummer.

I'll gladly provide any information that can help narrow down the issue, just let me know.

My company just pushed out new group policies for Firefox that blocks use of Firefox Sync. That also, apparently, blocked use of my saved logins and passwords.

I can find the encrypted password files in my profile: key4.db logins.json

but I can't open them.

Is there any way to get my login and password information?

I lost my bookmarks when I changed my password. Can Firefox recover them on its servers? I've seen many similar complaints arising from similar problems. One would think that Firefox would address this issue to improve the user experience.
