So I forgot my Firefox account password, but it is open on my android and ipad but not on the main laptop browser. I don't want to reset my password since I need my data, so the only way I see is backing up data from mobile and then pushing it to the laptop. How this is possible? Also, can why I cannot login on laptop with scanning a QR code? Any method I can use to login to my account without the password?

What does Sync do? (My primary concern is that I do not want to lose information) ... I am NOT talking about how to set Sync up, but when I execute "Sync NOW" ... what does it do?. There are many ways a sync can be performed.if I don't understand what it does, I can lose information. If i execute "Sync NOW" - does can Sync both push or pull information? - will Sync push information from the computer where I am sitting ... to a server or buffer then push to all my other devices? ... or will it push directly to all my devices? ... or instead of pushing ... without warning, Sync pulls information to my device? - Is the transfer of information immediate or is there some type of buffer? - Is the transfer of information a (complete or partial) merger or does it override all existing information? - Is the complete transfer of information immediate or is it buffered? - when pulling information does it inform of a timestamp on the information source of when it was last updated? - are these operations immediate, scheduled, or automatic? Do you see where I am going? ... I need to be able to predict Sync's performance.

Is there a way for me to test out passwords without having to wait 15 minutes after testing out a few? I lost my password but there are usually a few combinations so I've been trying to brute force it but it just doesn't workout. Thankfully I have a backup profile but it is rather old and I'd like to sync stuff to that account but I also don't want to wipe my data because I have quite a few new bookmarks and things I keep to remind myself of stuff (I have way too many bookmarks). Thanks

Hello dear FireFox, pls help me!

When I enter 100% correct e-mail password into sync window of firefox 84.0.2, firefox says "password is incorrect" :(( If I immediately enter the same password into another window with other FireFoxPortable, or older version, then other FireFox successfully logs into my e-mail account for synchronization ! If i back again to the window №1 with FireFox 84.0.2, the password incorrect again (pls look to screenshot)

Already i tried to use other accounts, including new, specially created, but this does not solve the problem of logging to my gmail@**** account for synchronization :((

Earlier, on older versions of FireFox , this problem did not exist, although I used the same accounts. Thx before! :)

Hi,

I love the Collections feature of Firefox for Android and it makes so much more sense then bookmarks. Why I can't sync it to Firefox for Desktop (Mac in my case)? Or why I can't use collections on Firefox for Desktop? Would be another feature which Chrome and Co. doesn't have but makes the life much more easier.
