Hi, The scenario is as below.

I have signed into Firefox account and synced my bookmarks and passwords, then for security purpose I signed out from the firefox account and then I removed all saved bookmarks and passwords from local browser, but when I sign in again, the synced passwords and bookmarks are removed from my account. I dont want to save the passwords in my local browser, I need to use by signing into firefox account only. How can I use this?

Linked devices sometimes missing from "Send to Device" on Firefox Android

When I share a website on mobile, usually my other linked device will appear under "Send to device" in the Share menu, and I'm able to send the tab to that device with no issue. However, sometimes when I try to do this, my linked device will NOT show up; I will only see a circle with a plus sign that says "Add new device." This can happen even if the linked device is turned on and recently synced to FF (but it shouldn't matter, as I can usually send a tab to a device even if that device is not currently on). I have tried the following troubleshooting, but none of them work: pressing Sync Now in my FF Android account settings, refreshing Synced Tabs, closing the app and clearing the cache. Eventually, I'll try again and find that my linked device is once again visible under "Send to device," but I have no idea what makes it work or break.

Does anyone else experience this and/or know why it happens and how to fix it?

Hello,

I am running into something very frustrating and am incredibly annoyed by it. Yesterday, I was browsing and had bookmarked some sites prior to me doing a Firefox update. After the update I had restarted my computer. Fast forward to today and I come to find out that NOTHING from the SEVEN (yes SEVEN!) hours leading up to the update had saved at all in Firefox. No history and no bookmarks from that time period. Oddly enough, my last bookmark shows eight whole days ago so not sure as to the extent of the damage. I have attached some pics showing the huge gap of missing data. It absolutely perplexes me.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Hello, I’m trying copy my passwords etc over from Firefox. Every time I follow the step and the import wizard comes up all it has listed is bookmarks. I’ve looked everywhere and I can’t for the life of me find a way to allow it to access the other stuff I want to sync from safari.
