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?

Every time I start Firefox (on Windows 10) a second tab opens which says "Connect another device". When I open the tab there are some links to install Firefox on smartphones, etc.

However, I already have Firefox linked and syncing on my Android smartphone, and 3 other computers. For some reason FF is not seeing that I have those devices linked on my account.

I have tried disconnecting from all devices in the "Account Management" page and then reconnecting. But this has no effect. Even when I am signed out on all devices, the tab asking me to connect another device continues to appear every time I start Firefox.

I have also tried refreshing Firefox to no avail. But I have noticed that if I start the browser in "safe" mode, the errant tab does not always open.

Is there a way to turn off this tab?

Thank you.

I am unable to login to firefox accounts .

I have the correct Email and Password, but it keeps asking me for the conformation code sent to the email for login, but i dont have access to the Email as the password is saved in sync server.

I mean the Lockwise Sync server. No i don't have any device currently logged in to Sync. I recently Formatted my PC, So all files for password manager were lost(I synced the logins to the server before formatting my pc hoping that the Login id and Password for the Accounts would be enough to retrieve them ) and am trying to retrieve the logins.

No luck with the login links i can login but cannot change anything in the settings, it says :

" NOTE: Before you can view or make changes to this section, you will need to verify your email address. "

So any way i try it is asking for the conformation code sent to my Email address Whose password is stuck in my sync server.

So its like


can't access the sync server -------because------- can't access my email for code------because--------can't access my firefox lockwise -------because-------can't access sync server

Need Help ASAP Please.

Parrot OS 4.10, Firefox 77.0

Can't log into Firefox Sync all of a sudden on this computer only. Keep getting error saying that I have to enable cookies and local storage which I cannot figure out how to do. Cookies are not blocked and there is no setting in preferences for local storage.... Remember History is enabled.

Re-install of Firefox did not help. Anyone run into this before?

I have tried to register TWO secondary emails, only to find that they are both in use. The trouble is THEY ARE BOTH MINE??? They are 1) - [email]@sky.com, and 2)- [emaill]@outlook.com. I have succumbed to using a "primary email address", but I still CANNOT get what I want. IT IS JUST NOT ON. E.G. "A secondary email is an additional address for receiving security notices and confirming new devices. Account already exists". MY ONLY REPLY IS "they would do because they are already mine". so, PLEASE GET IT SORTED OUT. Thankyou. I am getting really fedup with mozilla. It is a good browser, it's just the people that make the rules that do my head in.

Just last night I updated Firefox to version 78.0.1 on Fedora. I cleared all my history. I had to sign in to Firefox account again for some reason.

And this afternoon I discovered that my Logins and Passwords has gone empty. I use master a password and that is still in effect, and my sync settings includes logins and passwords. I've done this many times--signed in to my Firefox account, set up a master password and I'd see all my saved passwords there after doing a fresh install of my operating system. I don't know what happened now.

I bought a new PC recently, which includes new hard drives and everything. Sync was always turned on on my old PC that I used until I switched to new one completely. And now when I logged into my Firefox account and tried sync, to my surprise, NOTHING synced. I've lost all of my saved passwords and bookmarks that I've been storing for years literally. Please tell me that there's a way to get those back somehow?

I just starting using Firefox, and I've installed it on a Mac Laptop, a Windows Desktop, an iPhone, and an iPad.

Each install is logged into the same Firefox account, and each install began with the same set of bookmarks.

Now, when I add or remove a bookmark on one device, it's not syncing to any other device. I've tried this on several devices. I've tried manually clicking the "sync" icon on each device to try to kick it into working.

How can I fix this?

Hello!

I have bought a new computer recently and for the life of me cannot seem to get the history/passwords/bookmarks to sync to it despite using Firefox Sync. I have enabled these items to be synced, checked that cookies are on, closed and restarted both my computer(s) and firefox multiple times as well as everything else laid out in forums here.

Can anyone help me port my bookmarks over to my new computer?

Thanks.
