When I get my bookmarks the way I want them on my computer and delete the ones I do not want it gets messed up. I have 4 computers on my account and every time I sync it brings up old book marks. I have deleted all book marks from my computer and set up a new sync account then deleted all book marks on my other computers. Then I set up the new sync account on all the computers and still brings up Book marks. There should not be any book marks because I deleted all book marks from all computers before I set up the new account. I have done this 2 times and it they come back. How can I clear all my accounts and start over???????????

What I am trying to accomplish is on my work pc I want one instance of firefox with my work account, like normal, but I want to have another with my personal account without them getting mixed. Being able to access my data and send tabs to my cell phone would be handy, in fact, I needed it today when my printer died and I needed documentation out in the shop. I have tried to create another user account and shift+right click>run as different user, but it opened up firefox just like it is when launched normally, logged in and all. I have tried straight up installing another instance; obviously the firefox installer does not allow that. The only thing I haven't tried that I know to do is run the second instance of firefox in sandboxie, which I dont really want to do, like I dont want to log out either (switching users on my work computer actually causes a bsod) I would greatly appreciate some help. The one thing chrome has over firefox is the ability to switch accounts on the fly, though I greatly prefer firefox's way of logging into the application in a more unintrusive way. Even if I could just send a tab to my phone from a different account (share tab from work to personal account) that would suffice.

Hello. I tried to carry my opened tabs from old device firefox to the new one's firefox. I logged in on both devices, I indicated to sync tabs and bookmarks, then tapped "sync now". Then I found bookmarks from my old device on new one, but not tabs. What I do wrong? Or may be I understand wrong this function of sync, while I expect just carry my all tabs at once?

Firefox for Android doesn't autofill saved/synced paswords since installing and uninstalling Lockwise app

Firefox sync was working on all my devices as my logins and passwords were perfectly synced. The problem started when I was offered to install the Lockwise app on Android. Where logins were available in the Firefox for Android app they wouldn't sync with the Lockwise app, the syncing went in an infinite loop and did not sync anything. Reinstalling or rebooting did not help. From this moment Firefox for Android offered to fill in the passwords from the Lockwise app, but since there were no passwords synced, there were none to fill. So I decided to uninstall the Lockwise app and go back to Google Autofill service for my global Android password management. But in the Firefox for Android app (which I use the most) I still like to use the build-in Firefox Sync autofill feature like I used to before installing the Lockwise app. Firefox for Android does not offer to fill in any password information anymore. When I look in Tools > Logins all my passwords are there, perfectly synced.

After some research I checked if the following about:config booleans were enabled: and yes they were. signon.autofillForms signon.autofillForms.autocompleteOff signon.autofillForms.http

When I was using Aurora it happened to crash so I restarted as i normally would when this happens, but when it restarted it was a new version (Firefox Developer Edition) and not a single bookmark, folder, add on etc had remained (not to mention my previous session that had quite a few tabs some trivial but some a bit more important and ALL of my history was gone). When I tried to go to Sync and see if that would restore anything the option to put in my recovery key was nowhere to be found although in the Sync FAQ it mentioned this older way of using sync could still be used. So I made an account with email and password and still could not find a way to sync anything I lost. I searched around the FAQs and could not find a resource to help with my issue.

I've been a loyal user of Firefox (since 2005) and I will continue to be but this really caught me off guard as even in previous updates I never had an issue like this.

Any help with what to do would be greatly appreciated. Thank you

I used to use Firefox but changed to Waterfox Classic a couple of years ago. I have now downloaded Waterfox Current but can't transfer my bookmarks and passwords to the new Waterfox. All the suggestions on the sub-Reddit group do not work because I am not sufficiently computer literate to understand them and/or they are incorrect. Syncing did nothing so I am back on Firefox but syncing here does not bring all the bookmarks from Waterfox Classic to Firefox either. As noted, I am to all intents and purposes computer illiterate plus I am in my mid-seventies with no teenagers around to solve techie problems for me. I really don't want to have to open my bookmarked sites in Firefox and them bookmark them manually, so is there an easy way to get my bookmarks and passwords from Waterfox Classic to Firefox. If so, can someone point me in the direction of an idiot's guide so I can revert to Firefox as my default browser? Thank you

Hello, I am a bit of a tinkerer and a tech junkie. However, I still find sync to be a very useful and handy tool, and have it applied to all of my devices (tablets, phone, multiple computers). Due to my never-ending quest to make things better, though, I am frequently changing OS'es and uninstalling apps/rearranging registries on many of these devices, so I often find myself needing to reinstall firefox (and thus re-sync).

The only problem here is that sync recognizes each new iteration as its own separate device, even though a vast majority of them cease to exist entirely and are gone forever. This makes my "Tabs From Other Devices" page a huge pain to access, as most of the device names are the same and a lot still have active pages in them.

How would I go about deleting these old accounts from my sync account? Changing my password does no good at all, as since the devices cannot access the server any longer they are still present in my database, and as such are still annoying. Any help is appreciated!

Two pictures of the problem is as follows. As you can see, there are many apparent duplicate devices: http://imageshack.com/a/img14/5290/a29b.png http://imageshack.com/a/img59/6697/6sp4.png
