My Firefox does not restore data automatically. I will recount everything as follows. Initially, my Firefox showed signs of lagging, so I deleted Firefox and reinstalled it (at this time my account was still logged in and syncing normally). After I successfully reinstalled Firefox, I forgot the password because I hadn’t logged into Firefox for a long time. After I reset the password and logged into Firefox to sync, and I clicked Sync now many times, it still did not sync and retrieve all the data I had earlier. Can someone help me! Many of my important documents have been lost!

Hi

I am a web dev, and need FF help on this. All of my sync data is gone, I sign out and back in twice, I checked the profiles there's only one, all of my bookmarks, plugins & extensions everything is gone. Please I need those bookmarks some of them were very important to me I can't lose those.

Back-story: I recently want to try two distro that I had been on my list from quite a while now, VanillaOS & BlendOS, I worked on those for 3 or 4 days, before switching back to Arch, on both of them everything was working fine, I had all of my data. On Arch I had to reset my password because I forgot. Then the issue started, at first I thought maybe my internet was slow or something but now on the 2nd my data is still not synced.

I even signed out and back in, I checked the profiles(screenshot below). What should I do?

Hi, some years ago sending tabs to a device worked fine, but for some time now it stopped working. Is it just me or is it a general bug? All my devices are listed in my account. It also shows that they are updated frequently. I tried sending from Windows-Firefox to Android-Firefox and back. Nothing worked. What can I do? Best regards, Eric

The page freezes when I try to log in to my Firefox Sync account on Firefox browser: https://i.imgur.com/c7vbWUc.png

I can log in to accounts.firefox.com on Edge no problem, which is how I am posting this.

I've tried reinstalling firefox, refreshing firefox, running firefox in safe/troubleshooting mode, but no luck.

I am signed into Firefox on desktop and mobile using the same email. I've enabled sync and have synced. Yet my passwords from the mobile browser still don't show on desktop. And the instructions to scan a QR code don't work because they state to click the "sync and save data" option on Android, which doesn't exist for me. How do I sync?

Hello; so, my brother lend me his old laptop, clean. I signed in firefox with my account and explore normally. One day, he need it back a couple days so he can work while he repairs his main machine. Log off of my account and log on in his. Now my bookmarks, historial, loggins, etc appear in his session. We think that can not be possible with separate accounts with different associated e-mail and passwords, but here we are.

There is a way to separate my things from his account? It only happens to him, i don't have in my browser his data. Thanks

I have my bookmarks synced from two accounts on chrome. It worked fine, but now it stopped. My bookmarks toolbar is empty, except for an icon to fullscreen. It acts as if I have all of my bookmarks on there, and I can access them in the menu function. They're just not on the toolbar.

I've already hid/shown the toolbar multiple times, I've rescynced my browser data, I've fiddled with my toolbar settings, but honestly, I'm at a loss. I'm not the best with computers so if there's an obvious answer please let me know. Thank you!

Tomorrow I will help a friend update their unsupported Linux OS to the most current version of the OS. The present version of Firefox is 88. Firefox could not update I assume because of the age of the OS.

My concern is porting everything correctly from the old to the new version of Firefox. If I setup sync, will it restore his passwords and add-ons in addition to his bookmarks?

If not is there a good way to do it?

I use 1 Firefox account on 3 devices (2 PCs and a smartphone). On the first PC, the number of synchronized passwords is 1126. On the second PC - 135 (similar on a smartphone).

I pressed the "Synchronize" button many times, everything works, new tabs appear, but there are no passwords. What to do? I'm afraid that if I log out of my account on the first PC, I will lose all access forever.

Hi,

My old device has broken and I was wondering if there's any way to transfer the open tabs from it to my new device?

I've signed in to my account already and it ported over my history as well as bookmarks but I don't see a way to port over the open tabs? I'm not sure if they were synced and I can't go back to sync them now as the previous device is broken
