Honestly, I don't care about Sync. I only use my desktop computer. My cookies are always set to be saved. I never delete them. But every time I open Firefox 76, I see the Important News page about profile changes with a log/in request on the right side. In Preferences, I set a custom URL for my homepage. That did not change what I see first when I open Firefox 76. I never sign out, just open and close the Firefox window, and all it is set to save all of my login information. How can I go straight to my home tab without seeing this one about profiles changes?

This is about my Firefox Account in general, not specific to a product.

I just looked into the devices logged into my Firefox Account and noticed that my phone is in there twice. I think this happened because I used Firefox Nightly and Firefox Preview Nightly. When I tried to disconnect the old duplicate there is an error message "Invalid parameter: refreshTokenId" in the popup about the reason. So I can't remove the duplicate.

Missing device in synchonized device list to transfer tabs

I have two computers: one personal (HP), one from my work (MBP). I quit my job a few weeks back but still had my MBP in case they needed something. I continued to use it and I had to return it back yesterday.

I synchronized my tabs using Firefox Sync on the MBP and could see them well on my HP. I formatted the MBP and returned it, without disconnecting my Firefox account. I got back home and tried this morning to load on my HP the tabs I had on my MBP, but it is not listed anymore. (Surprisingly, some other device I didn't touch for 2 or 3 weeks is still listed, even though it's not connected.) I tried on another device to connect my Firefo account, thinking it would propose me to open a session have somewhere else, but the MBP session isn't listed there either.

I can't lose all the researches I made during the last few weeks :S I turned my side project into a full time job, I need them.

Is there any way to retrieve somehow the tabs I had open on the MBP? Is there a way to get from the Sync server any copy they have for my devices? Does Firefox writes to disk what it gets when listing the data of synchronized devices, so I could try to look into the deleted files on my disk?

Help or ideas much appreciated!

I just tried to add a secondary email address to my Firefox account and get an error message stating that this email address is in use by another Firefox account user (already verified by another user).

Is there a way of finding out which account it is registered to? I can't recall ever using this email address in Firefox before?

Thanks

Hi,

I had an second email address added to my account.

I removed it, because I want a second account for this address.

But this is not possible.

If I want to create a new account through the firefox interface, it seems like it is still connected to my old account. If I want to initiate a password reset, this is not possible.

What can I do?

I want to know how to sync from my phone to my computer not from my computer to my phone. My computer sync data is corrupted and there's no backup files, while my phone still has all it's files. Firefox was spiking my ram usage by 60% or more yesterday so I uninstalled and reinstall it even though the old and new was both the latest version. When I signed on again, my computer sync data would not bring back my bookmarks, passwords, add-ons, etc..

That's why I want to know how to sync from my phone to my computer, but now my phone can't even sync, if I sync it the date doesn't change at all that it was last sync today. it shows the very last time i sync on my phone which was a month ago. I tried looking up this problem and there were some people who had same problem a few years ago but they still have their files. I have zero files of backup of anything on my computer

I have several devices that currently use syncing for bookmarks and passwords. Each device has a different use, so I do not need for instance work-based bookmarks on my home game system. Can I delete the work bookmarks from the gaming system without deleting them across the other devices?

If I can, how do I go about doing that?

Thanks!
