Last time I used sync I got annoyed that it overwrite my setting when I logged in every time I got logged out. The solution was to create a new account every time I got logged out.

Is there a way to login without erasing my current data? I first used it when it first released so it may have changed? Can I choose if I want to download or upload my current settings? And I really don't want 10 year old data.

I know that I have seen tons of forums already regarding this issue. However, I still don't understand the reason for me being unable to sync my logins and passwords to my smartphone device via the desktop version of Firefox Browser I have. I switch to this browser from Chrome because of the AdBlock, but I still don't understand how it is so much easier and simpler with them to sync while here I am having a hard time to get all logins and passwords to be available on all of my devices.

Hi,

I recently had to switch computers. I have had a Firefox account for years and utilize the Firefox sync. However, I am unable to login to my Firefox account on my new computer. There is a "working" banner at the top but it never loads. I can access my account on Chrome but there is not an option to sync my data back. In the Firefox browser, it does not give me the option to sync.

Thanks,

Sync failed - links recoverable?

Dear Mozilla Team,

during the recent weeks I was away from my main PC and primarily used my iphone to browse the web. Every now and then I sent a link to the PC using Safari's share and the integrated send to function of Firefox for iOS. This usually worked really well, even when my PC was powered off. When I got back home and started my PC, sync would take forever, but was then interupted and all further tries to sync (hoping to get those tabs eventually) failed.

My question is if there is a log file of all those links that are sent to different devices? I believe there has to be one given that Mozilla's servers are being used and tabs (usually) arrive on powered-off devices following a request to the server.

If there is, please tell me how to access it/send it to me. If there is not, please take this as a feature request (a sent links history being gathered locally as part of the wider Firefox profile maybe and as a viewable list of all shared tabs for all devices so that tabs can still be sent to single devices but also accessed from others, similar to how tabs can be accessed from all synced devices).

Usernames and Passwords on New iPhone

New iPhone 14 pro - Moved everything over from the old phone - Signed into Firefox and synced - All bookmarks are present - The option to use saved login information from FF is present - The websites where I have saved logins are all present and listed in the same order as my desktop (desktop version works fine btw)

The problem is that the usernames and passwords are not present for any of the websites. They are just blank when I try to use it directly from a login screen. (pic#1) I can select the website from the list and FF recognizes and recommends the correct website’s “info”, but when I tap it it just autofills blanks.

If I access passwords from the menu options while I am not trying to login to a specific website, I can see the same correct list of websites with saved info, but it says “no username” for all of them and the passwords are blank. (pic#2&3)

Just wondering if any of the developers could add a domain exclusion option within the browser history settings where users could exclude the domains which they don't want the browser to record the history of.

Now many of you would argue that why don't you use private mode. Blah blah blah. But it's not the same thing. I gotta use my GMail, Google-drive, Outlook, or Facebook, etc everyday, so the private mode is not an option.

These domain URLs are not necessarily required to be stored and synced every day after day when nobody or at least 99% of people are not gonna use them ever.

Would be better, if users get the option where they can control which domains they want to keep the history of. This would offset millions and billions bytes of the data from Mozilla and also speed up and improve the history management.

Please share your thoughts.

I am unable to send tabs back & forth between my iPhone 12 (Firefox), Windows 10 (Firefox), Safari (iOS), etc., despite any settings or other possible fault. There’s no reason for the tabs to not send or sync, the tabs currently open ARE visible across devices, but that’s it. No direct way to contact Support either.

I have been using sync from day one: best thing ever regarding my productivity. AFAIK, credentials get encrypted before sent to the FF cloud, using information derived from my password.

Short version: what happens when I change the Firefox account password?

Long version: I'm thinking of replacing my current password, with a very long one. If I do so, will there a re-upload of my data take place? Will my credentials on the cloud become harder to crack (assume that the new password is longer and more complex).
