I recently uploaded macOS Big Sur onto my MacBook Air. At that point, my Firefox turned into a question mark on the tool bar and I have to sign in to Firefox Sync whenever I click on the question mark (which then becomes the Firefox symbol). Meanwhile, I clicked a link in an email, and this led to a second Firefox showing up in my toolbar. Both are Firefox browser 83.0, 64-bit, but the second one doesn't require signing in. However, the first one (the Sync) did retain my bookmarks. What is going on? And what do I do to just have one version of Firefox, preferably one that retains my bookmarks? Thanks for any advice!

hi folks,

Is it possible to restore a firefox profile to a new install from previously synced profiles ? I have several different profiles of firefox running on a few machines. On one of them I had to format the SSD but forgot to save to settings. When logging into the firefox account I see a list of all my machines but I don't see an option to recover settings from any of them

I would be eternally grateful for any help.

Thank you !

This morning my Sony laptop crashed. Fortunately, I have an HP that has not long been repaired under guarantee. All I have done up to today is make sure it works OK and add Mcafee security.

I am now using this and have succesfully installed several programmes including Firefox.

I have been through this process many times, having bought my first laptop in 1991. for virtually all that time I have used Firefox and always synced successfully on many occassions.

So I never thought I would have a problem today but, no matter what I have tried. I have had no success.

It seems that Firefox does not sync all settings the way for example Chrome does. In Google chrome one can expect absolutely all settings to sync across browser instances instantly. In Firefox only parts of the settings are synced. This makes Firefox unreliable and inconvenient because it is not apparent to the user which settings are synced and which are not.

Here is my experience:

- I made a new Firefox account - Signed in - Made sure syncing is on for:

  • Bookmarks
  • Credit cards
  • History
  • Add-ons
  • Logins and password
  • Options

- Added some add-ons, added some bookmarks - Customized the interface - Changed some Settings - Opened a Windows 10 VM - Installed Firefox 83 (so both computers have the same version) - Logged in with my Firefox account - Waited for the sync

So far I can see that my extensions are synced and my bookmarks. However there are some things that don't sync:

- Customization for controls, buttons and toolbars - Default search engine - Alternative search engines - Settings for "Firefox Data Collection and Use"

There might be more settings that don't sync, which I have not tested. Is this behavior expected? If so I might switch back to Chrome. Syncing only certain settings defeats the purpose of syncing, at least for me.

Also is there any list or information about which settings are syncing and which are not?
