Hi,

I have created an account a couple of mouths ago and don't use it since. I need to restore my firefox profile so I decide to use the synchronisation. Unfortunately, I can't remeber my login. I have the password and synchronisation key but not my login. How can I recover it ? Thank you !

Good day. I lost my computer and it is only with my bookmarks on my iPhone app.

Now I have a new computer and was wondering how do I synchronize my Sync account on the new computer since I have no access to the old computer.

My sync key is still the same and I didn't even reset the sync but my data is lost. I don't know how? I installed v13.0 while I was using 14.0 earlier.

I had only one device where I used the Firefox Sync. I installed Windows 8 release preview(fresh install) and entered the sync key I saved using the previous install of my Firefox(v 14.0). Then I installed Firefox on my Windows 8 installation with an older version of Firefox(v 13.0). I got a message saying it was your first sync, but I have used it earlier also. Many times I have synced my laptop with the data on the server after every fresh install and it worked. I got all my data every time but this. Now, I tried it twice by removing this device from my sync list, but of no use. And I'm sure I haven't reset the data on sync server. And no one except me has access to my laptop and even the sync key. Do I have any chance of getting my data? Whether be it by installing again v14.0 or something else. I will really appreciate for any help given.

I was installing Firefox version 43.0.1. I did not understand what Sync was. I partially filled out the password and got as far as opening the email sent me on the same computer. I could go no further with sync. I tried the help to remove the sync and clicked on the expand menu button but my email address did not appear on this menu. The problem is that I cannot access any of my website addresses. It just keeps searching and I believe it's because this partially set up sync is locking me out. I need to know how to totally cancel and remove the Sync from my account. I only have one device that I access the internet with. Thank you.

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,
