I recently upgraded my phone from a galaxy s8+ to a galaxy s21. I had chose to do trade in so i just factory reset my old phone and sent it in but what i forgot to do was sync my collections as I had a lot of those on my old phone. Sadly I only realized that after I sent it in and reset it. I'd like to get those back but I do not know how. Everything else seems to have synced fine but not collections. I checked what all accounts are supposed to be synced and that phones account is one of them, but I am not sure since I know longer have access to that phone if I am actually able to get those collections back. So I was wondering if that would be possible or not. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

My iMac died. I downloaded Firefox onto my replacement iMac and signed into Firefox Sync hoping all my Plug Ins and Bookmarks would propagate onto my ne iMac but they did not. I keep getting a message from Firefox to complete Firefox Sync by adding another device. I just want the set up from the Firefox set up on my iMac that died. Is there any way to recover my old Firefox info onto my new iMac?

I just fired up a computer I have not used in like 6 months.

I tried to login to my CURRENT Firefox account which I use with 3 devices.

I go through the email + password + verification process but when I finally enter the verification code (sent to the RIGHT email address) Firefox says "wrong password" and shows an OLD email I used to use.

I changed this email twice at least in the past 1+ years so I am not sure what's happening.

Bonjour, J'ai supprimé par inadvertance les identifiants de Firefox pour iOS - je croyais que Lockwise allait remplir les champs à la manière de Lastpass (!)... Quand la synchronisation s'est faite avec le mac, j'ai perdu tous mes identifiants aussi sur Firefox browser - bizarement quelques jours plus tard alors que la synchronisation se faisait bien entre temps pour l'historique . J'ai arrêté Firefox Sync et j'ai pu récupérer une sauvegarde de mon profil. Sauf que quand je synchronise à nouveau, mes identifiants disparaissent ! Faut-il que je crée un nouveau compte ? Merci par avance pour vos réponses. C'est très ennuyeux. Je n'utilise pas d'autre navigateur/gestionnaire et tous mes mots de passe sont là.

Sync working only partially, not all data synced

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.
