I'm using FF 73.0.1.

I changed the main address of an old account and deleted the previously used one from this account.

Now I want to create a new account with the previously used address, but it's not possible. When I try to register, I am not asked to set up a new password etc., but to enter an already existing one. If I do so, I am told the that the primary e-mail address is necessary to login. Of course I don't want this.

How can I register a new account with this E-Mail?

Hi all,

I was looking to make the jump over to Firefox as my primary browser on my Android phone and PC and would like to utilize the sync functionality. However, I'm not comfortable doing that without 2FA on the sync account. The problem I'm running into is when I try to activate 2FA everything goes well initially (I got keys to generate in Google Auth [tried with andOTP too]) but none of the codes work when I enter them into the prompt in the 2FA setup for my Firefox account. I always get invalid/incorrect code. I've tried the time sync trick, I've tried adding things to the keygen apps manually (instead of using the QR code), none of it is working. Are there any suggestions for other things I might try to get this working? Thanks! (I asked folks on Reddit and they suggested I post something here).

On the PC I have Firefox 75.0b5 (32-bits). On the Android-tablet (Samsung Tab S2) I have Firefox 68.6.0. So, both the newest versions. I created the PC-account today, because the Tablet-screen should be repaired and I don't want to leave any personal information there. So before cleaning I wanted to sync the personal data to the PC via the Firefox-account.

I can log in from other hosts on the same network. I can log in from this host to support.mozilla.org. I tried to clear the Firefox cache / browsing data.

Still, trying to enable Firefox Sync always results in an "Unexpected error" message.


UPDATE

I eventually tried to set the MTU setting for my network device and reducing that has solved the issue. This command did it for me:

  1. ifconfig em1 mtu 1456

Sync does not work at all on mobile. Every single name and password I saved On desktop browser I got to that site and no user name and password. Not once ever. Every site I know I have name and pass too I go to on mobile nothing populates and I have to reset password, which is annoying but I do and guess what? I reset my password, enter new password and fire fox now says want to update your password? makes no sense. The user name if stored should always populate but it never does. Another thing that does not work at all with firefox. This browser has literally gone down the tubes over the last couple years and it seems firefox is getting worser and worser which makes no sense because firefox was king of the world at one point and now it seems netscape navigator is better. I refuse to believe this. Screw chrome, screw edge and screw opera, I just want my old working firefox back.

I am trying to sign in and sync my account to my new computer, but firefox is NOT sending the 6-digit verification code to my email from my new computer. I have been trying for hours.

It is not a problem with my email. I logged out of Firefox and back in from my old laptop and it sent the verification code to my email for my laptop within seconds. No problem. But it just won't send it from the desktop. (the code from the laptop doesn't work on the desktop, tried that to)

This is very frustrating and ruining the new computer experience.

I have Firefox on my Macbook Pro and I have downloaded and installed it on my Samsung Galaxy S9+ phone. I have signed in to my Firefox account. I have clicked the sync button everywhere I can find it. It tells me it's synced, but when I look at my phone, none of the desktop info (bookmarks, history etc.) is there, even though the boxes are ticked in preferences. I have looked up the correct name of my laptop, and I have tried it from my phone and from my desktop. I have religiously followed the instructions in your help section and elsewhere on the web. Can someone please walk me through this step by step, or something. Thanks. Richard

Hi, I deleted my sync-account because it was damaged, no device was visible.

It looks satisfying for a layman now with a new account, but now i get a message from firefox on startup every time no matter what i click, that there is an old sync-account, pretty annoying.

How can I remove this message, or complete delete the old sync-account?

I have Firefox 75 on my desktop. And Firefox Android 68.7.0 on my Pixel phone. My desktop items sync to my phone with no problem. But my phone will sync everything but my passwords back to my desktop. This started when I upgrade my desktop from Firefox 52 to 75. I also lost all my passwords on desktop when I upgraded.

I do not have a master password.

Am I required to use lockwise with Firefox 75 for passwords to sync back to it?
