My iMac died. I downloaded Firefox onto my replacement iMac and signed into Firefox Sync hoping all my Plug Ins and Bookmarks would propagate onto my ne iMac but they did not. I keep getting a message from Firefox to complete Firefox Sync by adding another device. I just want the set up from the Firefox set up on my iMac that died. Is there any way to recover my old Firefox info onto my new iMac?

I just fired up a computer I have not used in like 6 months.

I tried to login to my CURRENT Firefox account which I use with 3 devices.

I go through the email + password + verification process but when I finally enter the verification code (sent to the RIGHT email address) Firefox says "wrong password" and shows an OLD email I used to use.

I changed this email twice at least in the past 1+ years so I am not sure what's happening.

Bonjour, J'ai supprimé par inadvertance les identifiants de Firefox pour iOS - je croyais que Lockwise allait remplir les champs à la manière de Lastpass (!)... Quand la synchronisation s'est faite avec le mac, j'ai perdu tous mes identifiants aussi sur Firefox browser - bizarement quelques jours plus tard alors que la synchronisation se faisait bien entre temps pour l'historique . J'ai arrêté Firefox Sync et j'ai pu récupérer une sauvegarde de mon profil. Sauf que quand je synchronise à nouveau, mes identifiants disparaissent ! Faut-il que je crée un nouveau compte ? Merci par avance pour vos réponses. C'est très ennuyeux. Je n'utilise pas d'autre navigateur/gestionnaire et tous mes mots de passe sont là.

Hello, I have two laptops, an old one with a synced firefox, and a new one where I want to get all the passwords, tabs, theme, settings and extensions. The OS is the same (NixOS, Linux).

I can successfully log-in and enable sync on the new laptop: it's possible for me to see the list of tabs from the other device, open and sync those tabs, but other things are not synced or synced partially.

For example: of the 30+ passwords on the old device, only 15 are present in the new device; no theme or extension is synced, bookmarks seems to be properly synced.

I don't know where to get more info about the sync (besides the about:sync-log page, which shows no logs), so I can't really tell what's going on. Indeed, nothing changes if I press the "Sync now" button.

I also tried refreshing firefox or creating a new profile from scratch and sync that again, but to no avail. Do you have any suggestion? Thanks

I will sign into my firefox account when on a new computer to access my bookmarks/passwords etc. When I sign out, after I am done using the shared computer, my bookmarks and passwords remain.

I even uninstalled firefox, but when I reinstalled it the next time I used the computer, all of my bookmarks and passwords were again available without signing in.

How do I remove these from the shared computer without deleting my firefox account?

Take a look at the screenshots. The second device is called "Firefox on HUAWEI LIO-L29", but I renamed it to "Mate 30 Pro" (screenshot 2).

Why is the device name displayed not "Mate 30 Pro", as in the case of "Macbook D14"? I renamed the device in Firefox settings a few days ago.

I have many duplicate entries in the "Send Tab to Device" menu, which I believe are from old installs. This occurs on both desktop version of Firefox and Firefox Android.

The problem is they do not appear in https://accounts.firefox.com/settings#connected-services so I cannot remove them. Only the actual devices I am using appear there.

Any ideas?

Hi team! I´ve been using my private account also as an office account for my work laptop for over 1.5 years now. Now I wanted to split these things and create a second account via following routine:

primary account was mp.*§$%@gmail.com I added my office email as secondary email: mwo*"§$@company.com I changed secondary to primary email and deleted the mp.*§$%@gmail.com from the account

Now i wanted to create a new account with mp.*§$%@gmail.com for my private things but I only get the login screen to type in my password, so there is no chance to create a new one with my private email.

Could you please give me any hints on this?

Thanks in advance!

PS: yesy the private email with smth like "+firefox" would work, but I want to keep things clean and memorable.

When I try to reset the primary password, I can get a new password - the only problem is that this new password is not accepted when I try set a new login into a web site. It looks like there are two different passwords: one for "Firefox Accounts" and one for "Firefox Logins". How to reset the latter one when they differ. There is a kind of deadly embrace! Not to forget that the access to the support can be on the same email address with a totally different password.

Is a start from scratch with a completely new profile a possible solution?

I have a laptop that I used from 2012 to 2015, and sometimes I start it up in order to check my Firefox history and find some URL that I visited once. Today when I tried that, I couldn't get the history. Ctrl+Shift+H didn't work, and when I hit the History menu, the option "Show All History" was gray. What should I do?

I opened the profile folder and saw that there's a big file called places.sqlite, which I think is the history file.

I did set up Sync once, though it didn't seem to do anything -- the history was still what it was when i stopped using that laptop. But I notice today that if I start to type in the address bar a URL that I have used recently on my present laptop, then it suggests the whole URL. In other words, it knows what I've been doing recently on my present laptop.

My switch from the release version to ESR seemed to go well, but my history and many of my settings and data, including my pinned tabs and extensive notes used by add-ons, were gone. I managed to reconstruct most of them, but was distressed to find that when Fx updated my ESR version those settings were again gone.

I have again restored most of the lost settings (including the one not to automatically update!) but I know I can't defer Fx updates indefinitely, and I also expect I may want to return at some point to the release version--and I desperately don't want to have to reconstruct my settings any more (or at least more than one last time). I'm not concerned about the loss of my history

Since I'm prepared to note all my settings first, starting fresh seems like a viable solution. I just need to know how (unless you can suggest a better option). I'd be happy with either the release or ESR channel.
