Firefox Sync refuses to stay logged in and every time I log in, a duplicate device gets added. Why?

When I use Firefox on my Macbook Pro, I always get logged out every time I restart the laptop. I tried everything shown in similar threads and nothing works. When I went into the Devices & Apps section, I noticed that my Macbook has a duplicate entry for every time I have logged in. All my other devices appear only once.

I tried deleting those duplicates (which were in the several dozens), but they continue to appear each time I log in to Firefox Sync.

Why is this and how can I get it to stop adding duplicate entries?

"""""""Hi, new iMac, I just intalled firefox. All OK, I log in to sincronized the account w/ my other devices. Now, everytime I go into firefox, I'm asked to log in, my account is not on as I open it up, as it happens in other devices. So everytime I need to use it, I'm requested to follow the process of the login in. Anything wrong with the intallation?

The automatic Update to Firefox 77.0.1 combined with Webroot jumping in with an add-on (not invited) just destroyed my Firefox.

If I have deleted my old account on 6/11/20 and created a new one with the same name on 6/11/20, is there any way to get my 6/09/20 bookmark and password info back? I los… (read more)

If I have deleted my old account on 6/11/20 and created a new one with the same name on 6/11/20, is there any way to get my 6/09/20 bookmark and password info back? I lost all bookmarks and all passwords. There appeared no way to eliminate, "Your browser is being controlled by your organization". I followed the "regedit" advice, etc. Since I NEVER use Firefox on any other device than this Win 10 desktop, I did not have Sync and never needed a "master password". I tried to follow the HELP-Troubleshoot-Revert to older Firefox-Key3.db- then Update - advice - etc. I could not make that work. Eventually I just downloaded the new version again and now have nothing except a copy of the old Key3 and Key4. from the HELP - troubleshoot exercise. I do not have bookmark copies. I never knew that I had an account or an account -- password - which is apparently the item that holds the bookmarks and passwords in Firefox. My question is: could I get my info back if I have only a deleted account name to work with? ( And deleted it plus created a new one of the same name today.)

Hi i am using the firefox since 5year and its best browser for pc and android. But I am not satisfied with the android browser of it and it need to be fix i hope so. When i had already saved the password an login into the pc it works. But when i have open the same website where i have already save the password in pc and open in android it doesn't directly so the login id and password. So i think it need to be fix ASAP because the people think it is Already saved in pc and i can use in phone also where no need to type the id and password in next device.

Hello!

I have bought a new computer recently and for the life of me cannot seem to get the history/passwords/bookmarks to sync to it despite using Firefox Sync. I have enabled these items to be synced, checked that cookies are on, closed and restarted both my computer(s) and firefox multiple times as well as everything else laid out in forums here.

Can anyone help me port my bookmarks over to my new computer?

Thanks.

I mainly use firebox on Android but occasionally on the laptop.

Today my husband started to log into Firefox on the laptop but stopped when confronted with a warning that proceeding would result in his settings being merged with mine.

Does this mean that only one person can use Firefox on a laptop? If so it is very inconvenient
