Good Evening,

I just downloaded Firefox onto my new computer. I went to sign-in and it keeps telling me that I have an incorrect password. It is the correct password because I used it to login here. I uninstalled it and reinstalled it on the new computer with no joy. What should I do? Also, I can login and out just fine with my old computer.

Thanks,

Leish

I use three computers but one is my main computer. Is there a way to make these bookmarks my MAIN bookmarks to sync. It is annoying when I sync and my main computer bookmarks get all messed up because the other computers aren't current. I want the two other computers to sync to my main computer and not vice versa. Is there a way to set up the computers sync this way? Thank you in advance.

Hello,

I am running into something very frustrating and am incredibly annoyed by it. Yesterday, I was browsing and had bookmarked some sites prior to me doing a Firefox update. After the update I had restarted my computer. Fast forward to today and I come to find out that NOTHING from the SEVEN (yes SEVEN!) hours leading up to the update had saved at all in Firefox. No history and no bookmarks from that time period. Oddly enough, my last bookmark shows eight whole days ago so not sure as to the extent of the damage. I have attached some pics showing the huge gap of missing data. It absolutely perplexes me.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Hi, The scenario is as below.

I have signed into Firefox account and synced my bookmarks and passwords, then for security purpose I signed out from the firefox account and then I removed all saved bookmarks and passwords from local browser, but when I sign in again, the synced passwords and bookmarks are removed from my account. I dont want to save the passwords in my local browser, I need to use by signing into firefox account only. How can I use this?

Until at least around 1 month ago it was possbile to open all tabs from another device's firefox. You could go to the Synced Tabs Sidebar, right-click the other device's name and click something named along the lines of "open all tabs".

When I tried to do this today, I noticed that the "normal" way to the Sync-menu via |||\ symbol doesn't work anymore and I at least found out that I could get there using via the firefox account. I can send a (single) tab to another device and I can see the list of the sync'ed tabs of a computer, but it is no longer possible to right-click that device's name and thereby getting to the "open all tabs" option.

After this was - seemingly? - patched out, is there any other way left to do this or was there any new way implemented?

thx

My laptop uses Firefox 3.6.8, but my Windows XP desktop is stuck at Firefox 3.0.19. (Firefox crashes when I use 3.5 or 3.6 on my XP system. I've never been able to debug the reason.)

So, will Firefox Sync work with this mix?

Thanks

Sync won't install. I've tried several times on both XP and Vista machines, and after install/restart - nothing. No desktop icon, no screen prompts - its like nothing happened. Feels like a waste of time!

How much more detail can I add? I've got Firefox 3.6.8; I've tried to set up Home - but similar experience. I re-open Firefox and everything is exactly as it was. I've downloaded to both my XP desktop (and was charged $1 by iTunes for Sync, even though it's shown as 'Free'!), and - nothing. The download process looked OK, but after re-start, there were no on-screen prompts on restart, no desktop icon, nothing - not even a saved file in 'downloads' - my default location. I'm in the UAE, btw.

I've set up firefox sync on both my latop (XP) and desktop (Windows 7 64bit) and on both I have the same problem (Both are running 3.6.8). I run the set up and it works fine. I hover over the icon and it gives a last update date, but when I close down firefox it doesn't remember my settings. When I start it up again all I have is the Set Up Sync menu option.
