How do I stop all installed firefox extensions from loading their main page after syncing?

every time I sync from a different computer or version of windows all the extensions load up their main author page all at the same time overtaking my browsing session so that I have to manually close each tab

its very frustrating On a side note Also after unnecessarily refreshing firefox and before manually changing proxy settings to "no proxy" after each refresh (Why is no proxy not the default setting anymore?) why was every webpage blocked and needing a security certificate? even google.com? and not long ago firefox crashed every tab, constantly, it wasnt even usuable but Im so dependant on its features I tolerated it but cant afford to much longer I have to use Chrome for my business as firefox doesnt always capture login/password for autologin nor for address, etc -fill in

Hello,

I have 4 devices (2 laptops, 1 phone and 1 PC), which I logged in to my Firefox account in all of them. I can see my bookmarks in all except for the PC (Windows 10). I can not see my pc under the connected devices from all other devices but I can not access my bookmarks from the browser that I am using on my PC. Can you please guide me how to fix this issue.

Thank you, Afsane

Gradually, the game Taonga Island became unplayably slow as you started insisting more often that I sync my accounts, mails, etc..

I will NEVER sync because I do not intend to give you in a neat wrapper what others pay you for, I want to remain anonymous as much as possible, and I certainly do not intend to give ANYBODY a neat package of linked and authenticated accounts etc. about myself. That is why I am not on FB, Twitter, LinkedIn etc etc..

STOP demanding I do this SYNC shit. Or I will tell everyone I work with, play with, etc to NEVER us any Mozilla products as sooner or later, they are going to blackmail you.

When I got my Android phone, sync (from desktop to phone) worked nicely. My laptop was permanently damaged in a fire, and my latest backup of FF folders is two weeks old. (I'm guilty - I know!). Bookmarks still appear on my phone, including a few I added just hours before the fire. If I log into FF on the new desktop, will it pull all the bookmarks from the phone? Or will its brand new (and empty) bookmark file tell the phone to dump its bookmarks too?

In other words, who's in charge in a situation like this? The desktop or the phone?

After logging in to my Firefox account, I am unable to sync or sign out.

When I manually try syncing it just spins forever without doing anything. When I sign out and and confirm, nothing happens. I have tried restarting my machine and Firefox multiple times but the issue persists. This is very strange.

I had an extensive collection of bookmarks I used frequently and in the past was able to recover them through Firefox sync. My computer was recently re-imaged by my company and I had to reinstall Firefox. This time when I logged into sync the bookmarks did not re-appear. I cannot connect my device to my previous profile on this machine because it has been replaced, but when I look at enrolled devices it still identifies my previous profile on this machine as active. Is there a way to recover the bookmarks from this previous profile instance? Are these bookmarks still saved somewhere in the cloud?

I normally use Firefox Beta. Ever since upgrading to v92 the option to Send Tab to Device has been missing when I right-click on a tab. I've downloaded other versions of Firefox and the issue seems to follow me out of Beta and into the regular release. I've seen other people having issues with syncing and sending tabs between devices as of late, but no one seemed to be completely missing the option to do so.

So, I recently discovered that many passwords that I've used before have leaked online, and I've been changing passwords and deleting old accounts for days now.

I've used Firefox for many years back in the day, but I can't log in my old account because it seems my old email has been replaced by another one, and my email is now the secondary email for that account.

So every time I try to log in, I just get a message "needs main email address", which I, unfortunately, don't remember. I tried all addresses I have, but none of them worked.

I need help to either get access to my old account or at least delete it.

Any help would be much appreciated.

I can share the email address I'm speaking of upon request.

Hi, HTML import function is not working. Trying to copy bookmarks to a new computer. Briefly get the activity indicator, when I click on "Import Bookmarks from HTML" and then nothing happens. Would be ok with using the Sync function, as I do with others here, but afraid it will overwrite my current bookmarks.

Please help. Thanks. [email]@wi.rr.com

Firefox is asking me to login to accounts, for which the password is already saved, every time I start a new session. This is causing a problem as I lose time in logging in for each session and this affects my work. Please help in fixing this problem so that Firefox remembers my password over multiple sessions and so that I don't have to log in unless I log out

On all the Firefox browsers I have synced together, the history shows the same tab everyday as today’s most recently visited page even though it isn’t. The tab it shows is an email from 2016 that I haven’t visited for years. Any idea why this is stuck or how to fix it? (Yes, this has been happening since 2016, but I just now decided to try to fix it instead of living with the bug)
