I accidentally entered a password in the login field. When asked by the browser about saving the password, he answered in the negative. I was surprised when the next time I entered the site, I saw two login options ([LOGIN]; and [PASSWORD]) in the dropdown menu. [LOGIN] matched my login. [PASSWORD] matched my password. Both logins are without a password. There is no stored data in lockwise for this site. If you save a random password for an unnecessary login ([PASSWORD]-[1111]), then it will be displayed in lockwise. Removing an account from lockwise removes the password, but does not affect the login. The only solution I found was to change the lockwise login. ([PASSWORD]-[1111] -> [1]-[111]), But after deleting this account, the login [PASSWORD] is returned to the drop-down menu.

I would like to sync my phone contacts with a file on my linux box. In that way i will be able to edit the file on the pc to look up or enter phone numbers that will be on the phone.

in a rational world, i would go to setup, select sync to file, accept the default of documents/firefox/phone-sync.txt and that would be it. is it possible in this world at all?

I've asked this question before and got no answer. Every time Firefox has an update, all my pinned sites in the "top sites" section gets discombobulated. What can I do to stop this? Apparently the sync feature doesn't seem to be working. I'm getting tired of manually putting everything back every time. If I don't get an answer I guess I'll have to disable updates.

Copy Sinc Logins/Passwords to New Account After Password Reset

I use Firefox sync to share logins and passwords between my home and work computer. I set this up a few years ago. Now I want to sync another computer, but I don't remember the sync password. I believe it's written in a code book in my office, which has been closed due to Covid 19 since March. How can I change my sync password while preserving my login and password info? Many of my passwords were generated by Firefox and not something I would ever remember.

I can see my current logins and passwords on a sync enabled computer, so in theory I can copy and re-enter them all. But there are hundreds, and that would many hours. If I was willing to do this, is there a way that I can enter the logins and passwords into a table in Firefox without having to visit every website, log in, and re-save the login info? At this point my only two options seem to be to not use my sinced profile on that computer, or to spend all day manually setting everything up again. Thanks.

Hi! I recently reset Firefox on my iMac, which restored it to default settings. But now, although I'm signed in to Firefox on my Macbook laptop and my Android phone, logins and passwords aren't syncing to the iMac. They're all on the same network, inches apart, and the two computers are otherwise synced (both running Catalina 10.15.7). I've tried the "Sync Now" button in Firefox, but it's not helping. Any suggestions? Thanks!

I'm guessing at the problem: it seems that firefox wants to GIVE ME A SECURE PASSWORD that is different than the one that is written down and remembered by my iphone and since I'm going blind I do not want all of these computer generated passwords. This PC that I am on now seems to have the correct password but firefox is insisting that I put firefox on different device. I THINK my android phone is synced but the older computer also a window 10 laptop refuses to allow me to sign in with my original password. I have no idea if Im suppose to have a different password on each device or what is wrong that I can not sync everything

Any HELP and suggestions?

Making home screen shortcuts is a very nice feature.

But when changing to a new phone is it not possible to transfer all the links as well?

Are the information not stored/accessible anywhere?

Any "easy" way to extract the hyperlinks would be acceptable but not having to open each individual one and manually copying the hyperlink.

Hope someone can help :)

I have used my email address which is

@gmail.com <--- I have been locked out from this account as I do not have access to Google authenticator or the backed up passwords

Funny thing is I have used the same email address but this time I used @googlemail.com <--- and I now have access to a new Firefox sync account.

This is silly.

As my email address accepts both domains @gmail.com and @googlemail.com

My question is... Why am I having to set up a new account using @googlemail.com

Why can't I just get a reset password to my email address which I own to @gmail.com so I can recover my sync account.

I totally understand the security part of it... But it's my email address. I would like a recovery code sent to my email so I can access to my sync account.

The current process for recovering access to a sync account is sad. And needs improving.

Please can you help me recover my sync account where I'm using @gmail.com

Kind regards MM89

I managed to explode my computer this weekend and I lost, among other things, my bookmarks in Firefox. They can't be recovered from windows.old as Windows somehow decided to replace the old windows.old by a new one with nothing useful in it.

I still have all my bookmarks in my account, though, which I know from looking at my Android phone. Now, I'm just scared that if I sync, they will get deleted from my phone instead of synced back to my computer. I could not find any specific answer to this; can someone help me? Do I have anything to do to make sure it goes the right way?

Thanks!

Yesterday I posted a query on this topic trying to find out how I can get my Android firefox app to scan QR codes to allow me to add other devices to my existing account. Although I haven't had a reply, I managed to find out how to perform the scanning operation from within the Firefox for Android app (V81.1.4). I set up all the permissions for the app in Settings and thought I was on my way to achieving the result when I found the 'Scan' symbol just above the search bar and tapped that. The QR scanner duly opened and scanned the code and I 'Allowed' the app to open the link. The page that opened announced: 'Pair using an app' and below it asked: 'Did you use the sustem camera? You must pair from within a Firefox app.' I repeated the exercise several times but got the same result. I do not understand why this is happening and why I cannot sync across my devices any more. It seemed to work fine without much intervention from me in the past, but since the recent upgrades the app is equally dysfunctional across all my devices. I sincerely hope that someone out there is able to set me straight.
