Hi,

I seem to be unable to find this information:

I have an old computer A, with old Firefox data which is synced to Firefox Sync. I am logged in Sync on this computer. I do not care for this data.

I also have a new computer B with new local Firefox data. This computer has never seen Sync at all. I want to keep this data.

If I log into Sync on computer B, can I make sure that its data isn't erased and replaced by computer A's data?

Thanks,

Firefox seemed to "sync" the DisableAppUpdate policy from a Windows public comp to my Linux personal comp. I don't want that.

I normally use Firefox desktop on my Linux computer.

Last week, I started using it on a public computer running Windows. I installed Firefox Portable and then logged/synced into my Firefox account on this Win computer. I noticed that in the Firefox Portable Windows “about:preferences” page, it says “Your browser is being managed by your organization”, which links to about:policies. In that “about:policies” page, it shows this https://i.imgur.com/JmD8nXg.png Policy Name: DisableAppUpdate Policy Value: true. Now I’m back on my Linux desktop computer and it also has this “managed by your organization” message in “about:preferences” and the same “about:policies” stuff. In other words, it appears that this policy was copied from the Windows public computer to my personal Linux computer. I don’t want that.

How can I undo this? And how can I block this sort of policy syncing?

DELETING PASSWORDS WHEN LOGGED OUT/NOT SYNCED

Okay, so I decided to sync my Firefox from my laptop with my work computer. I wasn't thinking about it also making all my passwords available on my work computer, which I do not want. I thought just signing out and using the browser 'un synced' would mean the passwords weren't available, but nope. While signed out, if click into passwords I can still see them all. So my question: If I delete the passwords from here (signed out) on my work computer, will it also delete them from my laptop browser (that is signed in)?

Hi,

A few days ago Firefox on my Mac laptop (macOS Catalina) suddenly stopped suggesting sites I'd visited in the drop down on the address bar and is no longer auto-completing as I type into the address bar. It is set to auto-suggest based on pages from history (I unset and re-set that in settings), and to remember history. However, I noticed today that the history is near blank (it has 3 tabs from a local network page I visited but nothing from outside my local network).

I also noticed today that the copy on my laptop is no sharing with my other instances (work computer, phone). I can send tabs to it, but the tabs that are showing as being "current" when I look at other machines are from before this happened.

I've tried rebooting and restarting Firefox, but I can't seem to find any fixes for it.

Does Mozilla have such a service for Firefox sync?

I'm using Firefox to save my passwords, but I'm having troubles in having a good experience with it now that lockwise is gone. And lockwise was not perfect either but still better.

If I create a new account on an app Firefox doesn't provide a way to autogenerate a password and then save the login data.

Please improve this feature because it is vital, especially if you deprecate the alternative.

Cheers
