I just had to system-restore my PC and when I redownloaded firefox, all of my settings/toolbars/bookmarks were gone. I thought hitting "sync now" would restore them from my Firefox account and it did nothing. I've kept the same bookmarks and saved passwords through at least three machines, I don't know what I did wrong or why it isn't working now. I'm afraid that hitting "sync now" has just overwritten all of my stored data instead of restoring it as I thought it would. Please help.

I just got a new PC laptop and was able to sync all of my Mozilla bookmarks to the new device. I've been working on cleaning up my bookmarks - they sure do accumulate.

My question is this: When I have made changes to bookmarks on one of my two PCs (one desktop and one laptop), how do I prevent the changes from being eliminated (changed back to as they were) on the device on which I made them, i.e. which computer to I sign in to first in order for the sync to have the changes take place on the second device rather than reversing the changes.

I'm sure the answer is simple and I could spend the time experimenting, but I'm more than confident someone out there can help be out easily, Please?

Something else that I really like. I have Apple for Windows 10 downloaded to my desktop. Any changes I make to my bookmarks on my PCs, get changed on my iPhone in Safari. Love dat!!

Today, I decided to switch to Firefox from chrome and setting it up has been a headache. It took multiple logins for my imported passwords to show and now sync isn't working. Logging in to both PC and phone only synced my data once. I can't send links between devices. I try using the pair feature but each time I scan, I get a page showing "Did you use the system camera? You must pair from within the Firefox app" Even though I did pair from the Firefox app. I have tried multiple times, always the same issue. Device: Umdigi A7 Pro OS: Android 10 Browser version: The latest on both PC and Mobile

I set up firefox sync on my wife's computer when I built it a few months ago to transfer stuff from her old computer easily. Her hard drive crashed recently and I thought I would be able to sync back to this computer but apparently that's not the case. I forgot the password but luckily remembered the username, so I reset my password through the link in the email that was sent to me. I can't remember my secret phrase at all, and don't want to lose everything on the server. Obviously I'm the right person since I reset the password through the email I registered with. How can I retrieve / reset my secret phrase without losing all the data on the server?

I'm using FF 3.6.8 on a Mac with OS 10.6.4. I can't see any words in the box where I'm supposed to confirm that I'm not a robot, so I can't start Firefox Sync. What settings may be wrong?
