I have data(Bookmarks,saved logins etc) on my android device I need synced to my PC. But the sync option in android doesn't work. The option to scan QR code doesn't work at all. The camera just shows black. Login through email just shows a non-responding Sync now option and greyed out sync choices. Please help me somehow sync it or at least export the data to my PC.

Hello. I use sync on two devices only, a PC and an android device. Today it has ceased to sync data to and from the android device. It just says "Last sync: never" even after clicking the sync button. The only thing I found online was to not have over 5000 bookmarks (which I don't) and to update Firefox. (I'm on the latest version)

So far I've tried clearing the data of the app, which didn't work so I tried reinstalling it entirely. That also didn't help. I've removed all duplicate devices from my account settings too.

Not sure what more I can do

EDIT:

Fixed itself of course only after I post here. I waited a few hours too..

Hi. Nowhere can I find a place to comment on the update. I am writing this in the hope that Technical Support will read this and will implement improvements in the future.

I update Firefox to version 79.0.5 on Android. The question is whether it is possible to restore this sharing in some options or do I just have to install an earlier version for it to work?

Before the update, when I shared any page from any browser, I had the option to "share to device" without having to launch the page on Firefox. It helped a lot, flipping the pages to the computer for reading later. Now, this option is unavailable.

Now, in the share menu I only have a "Firefox" icon and the page opens in my browser where I need to find the share icon and then find my device. It takes much more time and is less intuitive. The second thing, previously, the choice of the device was easier to read because the entire name was displayed. Now there is only the beginning part of the name.

I made a screen of what it looked like before (white theme) and now (black theme). Best regards.

I've been using Sync for a long time, my account password was saved within the browser, it just worked.

After update to version 81, following things happened: - all of the settings set in the options as well as about:config were re-set to defaults, - I could not log into Firefox account with a password working perfectly until now, - when tried 'Forgot password procedure' I've received "email address returned" error.

Is there anything I can do other than creating new account?

Thanks

Hello, Usually when searching about something i open many tabs. And i can sync the tabs across devices with no problem. The issue is that i cannot find a way to open those synced tabs all at once.

Hello,

Unfortunately, my mate used CCleaner to clear my PC and didn't unchecked "delete history" from Mozilla... So I have lost everything, cache, history, etc. We use the "light" cleaning, not the "secured" one.

I thought that I may be able to restore it with Mozilla Sync but I didn't find anything else than my bookmarks and the tabs on my other device...

I even tried to restore some of my old backup-restore files with Recuva but I was not able to do so.

Am I screwed or is there an option?

Thanks for your help!

Hello,

I've recently finished building a new computer and have been working on setting everything up, and Firefox Sync has made restoring my browser info quite easy. However I've got two other computers I'd like to try and transfer data from, and unfortunately made the mistake of not syncing the browsers between those two computers beforehand.

So I'm wondering if it's possible to sync the data between the browsers on all three computers and how to do so, and if I attempt to sync the data between them, will they merge together or will one overwrite the other?

Thank you for your time and assistance.

Hi I have been using firefox and thunderbird on WINDOWS 8.1 for many years now. I have easily restored firefox and thunderbird profiles(bookmarks,passwords,themes,addons etc.) after periodic formats and reinstallations. But now I am planning to move to fresh install of WINDOWS 10. Will simple copying and pasting of profile folder work or should I use Sync? or any other option? I haven't used Sync till now,so a bit hesitant.

Hello,

I got logged out of my Firefox account on Firefox for Android. However I am synced to my Firefox account on the desktop Firefox, and I also have my recovery key.

On Firefox for Android, when I click "Forgot your password?", I get a page asking me to enter my email address and to click a "reset" button. But it is written that resetting my password means resetting my account.

I don't want to reset my account, so how do I use the recovery key I have? Does the "reset" button send me an email which will offer me the possibility to use the recovery key?

This process is not very clear, thanks in advance for your help!

Hello

as most FF users, I've run into the issue of having a corrupt places or cookies database file several times in the last 15 years of usage.

I would like to know if Syncing can mitigate the risk of having a corrupt database file ever again? In other words, do FF servers recognize a corrupt file if received from my device? And would it help replacing it with the last intact file received?

I created my Firefox account with an old email address that is no longer accessible and will never be accessible again. I added a secondary email address long ago and made it primary. My account is logged in on my phone and my old laptop, both need repair, laptop data is probably gone. I logged in on my new laptop and a tablet, but had to change the password. Now Firefox does not know my logins and passwords, history, settings and preferences, bookmarks. It seems as if I have created a new account. How can I regain access to my old data?
