I have FF on Linux laptop and connected to my FF account to sync. All works fine. However after closing down laptop, restarting, open FF I do not auto reconnect to FF account and sync. What settings do I need so that I auto sync when opening FF? I DO NOT want FF to save site passwords i.e. BBC, TED, etc.

FF 84.0.2(64bit) for Linux Mint - 1.0

This is being sent / monitored from a Windows 10 computer and not the Linux laptop

Not sure if part of this posted as had an internet issue previously that took some time to resolve.

Hi, Had to wipe my laptop and had a copy of me email, password and backup codes for Firefox and it would not accept them. So I have tried to log into the account and when it does not accept the password, I get the email message sent or resent message and nothing.

Not in inbox, junk mail and looked directly via web email. Does not even say account is locked or email rejected. Just stuck.

I have had to create a new account just to be able to ask the question. That verification email came through in seconds.

This is a complete pain as I have literally hundreds of bookmarks/passwords, many I use on a daily basis.

(Unfortunately, this was also the only system I had logged into the account on. Not on phone, tablet or anything else)

Hope there is a simple solution. :'(

Suddenly my firefox crashed, it is more, it ate the ram, I have 32 in ram and I get to consume more than 25, I don't know what happened, so I reset it and deleted the entire account and when I wanted to synchronize, I already had nothing of data.

Problem solved with this support article: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/profile-manager-create-remove-switch-firefox-profiles


After the automatic update to Firefox version 84, all my bookmarks, customizations, and add-ons are missing.

I saw something on the upgrade notice page when Firefox first ran (after the upgrade) about syncing to the previous version of Firefox to restore my bookmarks and other custom items, but I cannot find those instructions on the Firefox support site.

How do I get back all the things now missing?

Thank you.

Profile migration FF Rapid Release 84.x to ESR 78.6.x (Offline)

Dear all,

I am planning a move towards the Firefox ESR 78.6.x. Currently my customer is using the Firefox Rapid Release 84.x and need your help with the profile migration. The customer has a very isolated on-premises environment and does not allow the users to login into a Firefox-Account. Therefore the settings for Cookies, Cache, History and especially Bookmarks are not synched.

Environment details:

  • Enterprise environment with several tausends of clients
  • All clients on Windows 10 Enterprise between 1809 and 20H2
  • All clients have always the newest Firefox installed currently 84.x

This creates a huge challenge to sync this stuff. Therefore I have now identified the following two options:

  1. 1 Allow the downgrade by using the environment variable MOZ_ALLOW_DOWNGRADE on Windows. For this option I am trying to find the real reason why this "Downgrade-Stop" has been implemented in the first place? What risks in detail do I take to allow this downgrade? Has anybody done this before and do you mind to share your experience here? How many issues did you face and how did you remediate the issues?
  1. 2 Hand over the migration to the users. Copy their current profile to their desktop and ask them to import their bookmarks manually. Not preferred by users and I can't even blame them for.

Is there any other way to automatically sync the profiles from 84.x to ESR 78.6.x without user interaction?

Thanks in advance Amir

Hello

After updating my browser, I lost all my bookmarks, I got a warning about syncing with the other device and so did but failed to back up.

The browser has updated and I have factory settings.

Bookmark restore doesn't work as I only have one backup defult after updating.

If there is a chance to recover this data, there was a lot of it, now it will not be realistic to rebuild all these tabs.

Greetings Robert

I think your browser gets linked to a Google account via computer by a hacker. Everything I do on my phone is not going straight to the intended place. For example when I've answered any emails? They get sent( it looks like it) but in reality, I will find them in Trash? Or Sent? Or other labels. My important email I never get until it's too late? Very frustrating! This person is hateful. Can you help me please? Thank you for your time.

I have two computers "A" and "B", side by side, both logged in to Firefox accounts.

on A, settings/clients shows J's Firefox on A current device

J's Firefox on B Last seen 4 months ago

and on B J's Firefox on B current device

J's Firefox on A Last seen 4 months ago.

They are literally 6 feet apart. Both running 84.0.1 (64-bit). Ran "Sync now" on both, "Refresh status" on both.

What gives?

I have been using Firefox on a surface pro 4. I recently bought a second surface pro 4, and installed Firefox on it as well. I used the second device to browse, and this filled up my top visited sites columns with new thumbnails.

Trying to use the original device, and all of my saved thumbnails with the important websites are gone. It would seem that my first device has synced to the second device, instead of the other way around.

Is there a way to revert to my original layout, before this sync, without having to try to remember all four columns, and pin them manually?

Hi,

I have just set up a Linux desktop running Pop OS, I am not able to login to my Firefox sync for my normal account it just directs me to the create an account page. My phone and windows machine are still logged into this account using Firefox sync. I tried to create an account using the same email and password and it has now locked that email because I didn't receive the verification email to confirm it. Has anyone had this issue before?

Thanks in advance,

Oz

My firefox was running slow. It offered me the option to, in a way, re-set itself (almost as if I unistalled it and re-installed it). I did it, and then had to re-upload my bookmarks and such. The bookmarks I was able to do with no firefox account, but for passwords, it required me to make one, so I did it quickly and easily with my gmail.

The problem is, to import logins and passowrds, it keeps telling me to 'Go to the Sync options' and tick the 'Logins and Passwords box' (in the about:preferences#sync page).

I do it, click the 'Syncronize now' option and then it asks me to change primary passwords. I never had one, so it asked me instead to make one.

No matter how many I create, even with the quality meter being full, firefox tells me they are unnable to change my primary password - which didn't even exist to begin with. So I don't know what's going on: i never had a primary password, and whenever I try to create one, firefox is unnable to do it so.

I don't know if maybe I have to activate some other kind of autentification method unknown to me, but if so, that's just a huge headache. How many passwords and logins must I have just to import my passwords and logins?

I'm letting you all know at least of this problem, which if can be solved easily, would be nice. As someone that loved mozilla, this leaves me quite sad . I get the passion for security, but this is an headache and a waste of time honestly.
