Had a problem with a work computer and it got fixed today so I was messing with it and needed to sign into Firefox and I accidentally signed into my home account. I realized it and signed into the work account and now it is all scrambled up. I don't know where anything is and not even sure if it is all there. Some of the bookmarks were the same on both computers. Guess I would have thought that when you sign into each account the bookmarks would just go back to the way they were...apparently not?

I have a new laptop. Each time I restart I have to sign back onto Firefox Sync. My old computer is automatically signed in which is way more convenient.

I saw one article that said to change the 'history' settings to 'use custom settings for history' with a few additional steps. I have tried this with no change in the programs behavior. Any thoughts?

Thank you,

Got the latest version of Firefox for Android on the last Google Play App update.

The Share / send to device (using sync) feature has changed, especially when using it from a Share to 'out of Firefox'.

Before it was possible to send an URL directly to a Firefox on my desktop without opening the page on the Android platform and it was extremely useful.

Since the new update, it opens the page first loading the full Firefox and then you can send to a Firefox on a desktop computer... Which is long and annoying.

How can I restore the former behavior Share>Firefox send to device?

i set up the original account in my new installation of windows 7. I am trying to import bookmarks and settings from my old xp installation. both installations of firefox are 32-bit. I am running a dual boot system. I can't seem to get my windows 7 installation to import the settings off of the sync. Why not? Can the primary computer pull the synch from the secondary?

Not smart the way sync is designed as I used xmark and decided to use FF sync so I created an account on PC at work and now I am at home wanting to sync my home laptop. How on earth do I do that???

Ok good people here goes. I have been using foxmarks/xmarks for over 3 years. Today after FF updated to 6.0 at work, I thought it might be a good diea to start using FF sync. So I created an FF account at work and synchronised with a FF server somewhere and I was given a sync key.

So when I came home, I though I will add my laptop and my iMac to FF sync, but to my surprise, teh instructions are that I have to add a device on FF where I created my account, which is at work!

Therefore is there a way around this, or I have to call my wife from work and do it on the phone???

Thank you in advance. Cheers

After performing the sync yesterday, I deleted my bookmarks on my old computer, because I am going to be giving it to my wife to use and wanted to let her create her own bookmarks. Today, when I opened Firefox on my new computer, all of my favorites had disappeared. Please help! I had all of my business bookmarks on there yesterday, but I need help recovering them.

Thank you!

I have a very old (~2008) Firefox sync account that I would like to access. I know my email and password. But the password is 6 characters, and the new minimum requirement is 8 characters. The login form will not allow me to login with my old password due to the form validation, and if I perform a reset, I will lose data I am looking for. So, I need to know how I can access my old account.

Thanks in advance for any help you can offer.

So I tried to update my email address on my account and it says I already have an account with that email. I tried to log into that account but it apparently had 2FA in place that I cannot recover. I don't care at all about any of the sync data that is in the account tied to that email, is there really no way to have the account deleted so I can reuse that email address?
