Is there a way in Firefox to have quicker access to saved logins than through the menu structure? The menus are four layers deep, which is frustrating as it is difficult to remember the route when only using the feature occasionally. Some websites don't respect the Firefox Password Manager, so it sometimes becomes necessary to manually find the credentials.

Is there any way to create a bookmark to the saved login section?

Is there perhaps an add-on?

Thanks for any answers.

Hello,

I have 3 different profiles and I'd like to have a visual indication of the currently active profile. I've found that using themes is the best option (a red theme for production, green for test, grey for default) but I can't prevent Firefox Sync to sync the active theme between my profiles.

I have set both services.sync.prefs.sync.extensions.activeThemeID and services.sync.prefs.sync.lightweightThemes to false and restarted all my Firefox profiles.

After a while, all windows/profiles are synced to the same theme.

Are those settings really read by Firefox Sync ? I'm on Windows 10, Firefox 91.10.0esr (32-bit)

Thanks in advance for your help !

I just got a new computer and my Firefox sync that I set up that computer had bookmarks, my theme, and how I had things laid out, I tried for over an hour trying to get Firefox to sync, but after it's still the same, I was also switching from Windows 7 to Windows 10 which made it even more nauseating

I upgraded my phone from the Samsung Galaxy S7 to the S10e.

I have my desktop and laptop set up to sync Firefox and both are running the most current versions.

My s7 also was set to sync and was working just fine.

I downloaded the most version of Firefox for Android on to the S10e. I've been successful at connecting the device to my account (it shows in the list of devices).

However, it is unwilling to actually synchronize. When I go to accounts, it says "sync: never" and the categories to be synced are grayed out (bookmarks, history, etc).

I've uninstalled/reinstalled, I've restarted the device, I've clicked sync in the laptop version.

I don't know what else I am missing?

Firefox Browser 68.8.1 on the S10e Firefox 76.0.1 on the Apple MacBook Pro (I don't know the version on my PC desktop, but pretty sure it's up to date)

I am IT techie, and I need FF help on this. I searched the entire sync issue forum, but of no avail.

I had a Windows 10 update issue so I decided to format my PC. My sync was enabled and all data was synced normally. I went ahead and formatted it, and installed a new copy of Win 10, and all softwares, including FF. Now after syncing for over an hour, I cannot find anything. No history, no bookmarks, no logins, nothing.

This is definitely something to do with your update. I cannot figure anything else out. How can I get my old data back? This is absolutely ridiculous and frustrating.

I have 2 other laptops with FF synced, but they aren't booting up either because of hardware failures. I cannot risk turning them back on, and loosing my FF data from those laptops.

Please advise, how to access my cloud data on FF, or should I switch over to Google chrome because of your incompetency?

Up until recently I was using a 11 year old laptop that was slowing dying. I was finally able to acquire a new computer and get it up and running just before an accident (as if out of a comedy movie - the roommate's cat knocked a full bowl of cereal onto the old laptop) effectively destroyed the old machine. Thankfully, Firefox Sync meant that everything I had been working on appeared when I got the new machine fully functional...until I logged on to Firefox this evening to find my Synced Tabs empty with just a "Want to see your tabs from other devices here? Connect Another Device" message.

The old device is toast...I don't know if it will even turn on again, much less function enough to sign into Firefox. Synced Tabs was also working just fine for a solid week until it just up and disappeared. Is there some way to restore these? I know it's my fault for relying/expecting Sync to always be there and not backing up the links I had open immediately, and this is a mistake I won't make again...but I'd really love to not lose everything I had open.

Thank you very much in advance for any help or suggestions.

On Firefox for Android, I see a "phantom" device that I no longer have access to.

This device has already been removed in my "Devices & apps" setting within my firefox account but I can't find a way to make it disappear from the "Send tab to other device" list in Firefox for Android, and have no idea why it continues to show up.

I've cleared the data on Android, logged out and logged back in, synced manually, and nothing I've tried seems to help.

Sync and Master Password agrivation

I like FF Sync and I like using the Master Password I set up in Options. I use them on all my machines. But why does FF have to constantly ask me my Master Password (MP) every time I boot up? I'm usually drilling down into my bookmarks tree trying to locate my destination when... POP! There's that darn MP dialog box popping up and stopping everything. I have to then start all over. Happens every time.

I tried to train myself to first sign into Sync as soon as I got to the Desktop, but that seems like it should be unnecessary.

Isn't there any way that the MP can be fed to Sync automatically if I am the only one using the machine? Can I eliminate Sync from asking for the password? Any work-arounds at all?

Hello,

It is really dissappointing and frustrating to not being able to get a realtime help from a staff over the phone just like old days. Got a problem, pickup the phone and then talk to a humble staff (back then), BAAAM, problem sorted. Instead, I need now to wite a two to three paragraphs to not only improve my writing, but also to lengthen the problem time. OK!

I have changed my Firefox Accounts account's (huh!) password to be 99 characters, this worked fine on my PC. However, on my Samsung phone (Note 4 Edge), it is running Android 6.0.1.

When I tried to reconnect to my account, I got a silly message saying that: "the confirmation email we sent to xxxxx@hotmail.com was returned and we've locked your account to protect your Firefox data". The email is MY EMAIL and it is valid! It simply didn't get their confirmation email. Not even in junk folder (save your words).

Obviously, Firefox is trying to protect my data from ME!. Secondly, instead of saying that: a 99 character long password could be the case, they just covered their mistakes by merely hitting the lock button from their side and left me with writing up about the whole issue.

My direct question is: Is it the password length that prevents me from connecting to my F.... Firefox Accounts account? Or is it something else. I doubt it is the former though! huh...

Waiting for Firefox to urge thier cavaliers, whom which I undoubtly respect, to answer this embarrasing question and cover up thier mistakes.

And now I need another extra time to hide my email in the picture for my privacy and for Firefox fellas who would applause for me. I know that they would.
