Hello everyone,

I set up a custom ffsync server and I'm using that for a long time now without any issue. However, the recent update disabled the about:config page on Android Firefox. How I am supposed to configure my sync URI now?

Wtf?

Hello,

I'm getting the following message:

« Sorry. We’ve locked your account.

The confirmation email we sent to XXX@XXX.org was returned and we’ve locked your account to protect your Firefox data.

If this is a valid email address, let us know and we can help unlock your account. No longer own that email? Create a new account »

I can connect to this support using the account, but not using sync on my devices.

My mail is a valid email address, and there was some temporary problem with the mail server which explains why the mail was returned.

What can I do to get back my account? The « let us know » link leads me here.

Thanks,

I have a Firefox account. I signed out of my account and then signed in with my 90 yr. old father's Firefox login since he had a question about storing passwords. Now when I'm signed in as him, all of my personal logins and passwords are in his account. When he signs in at his home, will he see my personal logins? If so, how do I ensure my personal info is completely deleted from his account?

One other question: He wants Firefox to remember his Gmail address, but wants to manually type in his Gmail password. Is there any way to do this? The only options I could find were to delete both his login and password or remember both his login and password.

Did I lose my saved bookmarks when I reset my password?

I've exported/imported firefox settings before (bookmarks, etc) but this time I didn't get a chance to export before my computer blew up. So when I logged on to Firefox on my new computer, I didn't have my password. It forced me to reset my password....but then none of my bookmarks transferred over. I thought they would be tied to my login and I could still recover them without the files from my old hard drive. That doesn't seem right to me, what am I missing? How do I recover the bookmarks saved on my Firefox login? I had soooo many....

thanks in advance!

Bookmarks overwritten by Firefox Sync

A couple months ago, I got my mom to switch from Chrome to Firefox. She ordered a new computer from a computer exchange company recently, so she asked me to sync her browser data from her old computer to her new computer.

I signed her up for a Firefox account, and when turning Sync on, it asked me to set up a second device. Since the new computer hadn't arrived yet, I decided to use Firefox Sync with another computer in the house. I installed Firefox on the device (it had never been installed before on that device) and hooked up her Firefox account. As expected, everything synced perfectly. The page telling me to connect another device still appeared, but I assumed that was because she hadn't connected a phone yet.

When the new computer arrived the next morning, the old computer had already been shut down and sent to the company, and the other computer in the house was still running but didn't have Firefox open to the best of my knowledge. I installed Firefox on it (again, didn't come pre-installed and had never been installed before) and hooked up her Firefox account. This time, everything synced perfectly... except for the bookmarks.

Only about 2-3 dozen of them transferred, along with one folder with a dozen more. (There were quite a few, potentially around 1-2 thousand.) The only bookmarks on the toolbar were the Getting Started page and a blank-titled bookmark leading to a "compose email" page. The rest were nowhere to be found. When I opened up Firefox on the other computer in the house, Firefox Sync had conveniently overwritten all of the bookmarks with what was on the new computer!

Everything else, including the history, passwords, and add-ons, were preserved perfectly. I tried everything on Recover lost or missing Bookmarks and Restore bookmarks from backup or move them to another computer to no avail, since the other computer in the house didn't auto-backup the bookmarks after Sync transferred them. I even gave it a couple of days like the article suggested, and still nothing. There's no chance that the computer exchange company had anything to do with it, since they have a no-touch policy of 30 days in case there's problems with the new computer.

Is there any chance that the bookmarks still exist somewhere? It's not a huge problem, since my mom told me that she's fine with the bookmarks being gone, and she would have ordered the old computer back if they were that important to her. I'm just unsure what might happen to the data in the future, or even what might happen to my own Firefox data, and hope that an answer might be helpful to others with the same problem but greater stakes.

The browser data provided along with this article is that of my mom's new computer, and should be true for the other browsers involved as well -- except for the old computer, which was Windows 7.

I love Firefox. Is my default browser in all my phones. I have 4. So I decided to uninstall play services and google play store. All my apps work well but Firefox doesn't. I was looking for a Firefox apk free of play services but it couldn't. I know it has to synchronize but outside Huawei services and google services, isn't there any apk working directly with Firefox? I am asking this, because I found apks from telegram whatsapp, signal, Vivaldi, but Firefox not? I supposed there was one. Thanks

I was using Gmail but have tried to get away from Gmail. I still have it because of play store but it seems to stick with most of what I am doing. I think I chopped it down but with WiFi on it's hard to get away. I got updates off unless it's something trusted and there is far and few between.

Thanks for all the help
