Hello Is there a way to sync from a device but not to it? I want to be able to see the bookmarks, tabs, history and possibly extensions on my work computer but I do not want my tabs, bookmarks or extensions from my personal devices to sync on the work computer. Is this possible? If not, is there a way, for example, if I use a separate account for work to send/merge the bookmarks and tabs to my personal account?

Suddenly my firefox crashed, it is more, it ate the ram, I have 32 in ram and I get to consume more than 25, I don't know what happened, so I reset it and deleted the entire account and when I wanted to synchronize, I already had nothing of data.

Problem solved with this support article: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/profile-manager-create-remove-switch-firefox-profiles


After the automatic update to Firefox version 84, all my bookmarks, customizations, and add-ons are missing.

I saw something on the upgrade notice page when Firefox first ran (after the upgrade) about syncing to the previous version of Firefox to restore my bookmarks and other custom items, but I cannot find those instructions on the Firefox support site.

How do I get back all the things now missing?

Thank you.

I have two computers "A" and "B", side by side, both logged in to Firefox accounts.

on A, settings/clients shows J's Firefox on A current device

J's Firefox on B Last seen 4 months ago

and on B J's Firefox on B current device

J's Firefox on A Last seen 4 months ago.

They are literally 6 feet apart. Both running 84.0.1 (64-bit). Ran "Sync now" on both, "Refresh status" on both.

What gives?

I have been using Firefox on a surface pro 4. I recently bought a second surface pro 4, and installed Firefox on it as well. I used the second device to browse, and this filled up my top visited sites columns with new thumbnails.

Trying to use the original device, and all of my saved thumbnails with the important websites are gone. It would seem that my first device has synced to the second device, instead of the other way around.

Is there a way to revert to my original layout, before this sync, without having to try to remember all four columns, and pin them manually?

Hi,

I have just set up a Linux desktop running Pop OS, I am not able to login to my Firefox sync for my normal account it just directs me to the create an account page. My phone and windows machine are still logged into this account using Firefox sync. I tried to create an account using the same email and password and it has now locked that email because I didn't receive the verification email to confirm it. Has anyone had this issue before?

Thanks in advance,

Oz

I installed idm extension on firefox for windows. Since I was logged in to the firefox with firefox account, when I tried logging in to the firefox on linux this idm extension got enabled over there as well. Since IDM software is only available for windows it doesn't make any sense to have that extension on linux. So I removed it on linux firefox. What syncing did is it removed it on firefox on windows as well. Now I want it on firefox on win but not on firefox on linux. What should I do?
