i had to rebuild my laptop computer and set up firefox on it, set up/turned on sync and the browser does NOT match the broswer srttings on the desktop where the sync comes from. bookmarked weblink icons only show up when a new tab is opened and vanish once a website is opened, icons for bookmarked weblinks on the bookmarks bar are generic wireframe globe-like-icons only, the custom firefox colour setup i struggled to create over the course of several weeks does not appear at all, nor does the dark theme. how then do i get this to -really- syc???

Hello,

I just got a new Macbook Air and I am trying to sync my bookmarks and preference etc., from my current Macbook Pro. I read the help articles and one thing I cannot find is a "Sync Now" option on the Air. It is not under the menu icon list. I signed out of the Pro and back in. The user and PW are the same on both laptops. Hoping you can help.

I recently installed Firefox on my new computer and when I tried to log into my account to sync browsing history, saved logins, extensions, etc., I realized that I forgot my Firefox account password. After I reset my firefox account password, firefox is now not syncing any of my data.

New: Is it true that changing the Mozilla account password will cause the sync data to be lost? If so, why didn't I get any warning before changing the password? In the current state, if I log in the account on Firefox Android, will the information on the Android device be lost, or will the desktop Firefox sync with it? please guide me

Firefox has always maintained that current tabs will be restored after a reboot of the browser, and indeed that was the case for the first half-dozen years I've been a subscriber. That has not been the case for the past 4 - 6 months however. I have the correct Settings for this, so it is not on my end. Why do I always get a fresh Firefox browser whenever I update the version (which is quite regular lately . . . maybe a new version of Firefox every 3 weeks). Please help.

Can't find the sync I need from previous device (specifically "Open Tabs")

On Wednesday, 12/6, I got a new work computer. FYI--both old and new computers are Dell laptops using Windows.

So on Tuesday 12/5, I had synched everything--Bookmarks, History, Open tabs, everything. I checked to make sure everything had synched because I knew I didn't want to lose my info.

After I had done that, I also signed out and deleted the history from that old device because it said that wouldn't affect the synched information.

On the new device, I haven't been able to access everything from that sync. I can see that most of my Bookmarks are there but the Open Tabs are nowhere to be found.

In "Connected Service", I see my old device listed but it says the last sync from that device was 4 months ago (that is definitely not the case).

When I look under "re-open all tabs" in Settings it only shows what I've opened on this new device (mostly Help topics trying to figure this out!)

Is there anyway to get back to the most recent sync? Especially but not only the Open Tabs?

THANKS! Christina

Rond 26 november heb ik mijn firefox browser verwijdert niet wetende dat hierdoor mijn bestanden die via firefox waren opgeslagen op mijn google drive niet meer toegankelijk zijn .

Ik heb een nieuwe firefox account moeten maken echter die kan de verdwenen bestanden ook niet terugvinden.

Wellicht dat mijn oude firefox account van voor 26 november wel de weg weet naar de verloren bestanden.

Kunt er voor zorgen dat mijn oude firefox account van voor 26 november herstelt word?

I am a long-time user of Firefox and recently had to re-install the browser on my Laptop. I have the latest version of Firefox on both my Desktop and Laptop and have tried to sync my Desktop Settings (tabs, bookmarks, etc ) to my Laptop such that when I open Firefox on the Laptop it mirrors what I see on my Desktop, but to no avail.

Hi Support,

I have always been struggling with the idea of syncing two devices, that is main and secondary devices, and that when logged out of the secondary device, user details such as passwords, booksmarks and other important things are left bare on that browser or secondary device.

It is my believe that, after completing whatever task that led users to sync both devices, the moment the user logs out on the secondary computer, or any of the computers, the passwords, bookmarks, history and other essential details should not display again on such computer or browser anymore but apparently thats not the case with Mozilla Firefox browser.

Kindly look into that and work on it....THE SECURITY AND SAFETY OF THE USER IS LEFT WIDE OPEN!!!

On a legacy iMac with over ten years of Firefox usage, I suddenly cannot sign in. The mac caps out at High Sierra 10.13.6 and I am unable to activate sync. I have tried allowing all cookies, restarting the browser several times, and even explored the config files.... to no avail.

How do I "enable local storage"? that's the error that sync provides me, but there is no option to fix that and all of your help files point me to cookies information (which I have done everything with). There are no actual help files to fix the local storage problem. This is frustrating!

Do I have to uninstall the entire application? If so, how to I preserve my bookmarks and pws without also porting over whatever is broken in the application?

I recently opened Firefox on my laptop and found only 10 of my saved passwords remained. I had a lot saved that I had been using the night prior to this on a different computer. I still have all of my bookmarks and addons saved, I’m just missing 95% of my saved logins? I have Firefox on 3 devices and it’s the same for all of them. What happened here and how can I restore them? I only have 2 profiles, mine and the default and I know there’s probably a backup of this saved in the profiles but I’m not sure how to restore it.

Hi

I had to change my operating system. before doing that I made sure I have sync my browser. Now after installation browser and login to my account the sync is not doing what I was hoping for. The sync is just uploading the new configuration to the cloud but it is not downloading all the history and add-ons from a version before OS change. I see it is stored but I don't see any option to load those to the current browser. Please, advise what can I do?

I have multiple times format pc and then instal firefox and log on in sync and i get back all of my bookmarks and paswords. But today that was not the case.

What i did difrently? I loged in with google account instead of email and password on sync page. (from the begining i newer joined my google email with google account in mozila sync service, i always loged in with email and password.) And somehow mozila created new account which is empty ??? If i log out of firefox sync and log in with email and password then i get again redirected to this new firefox sync account which is joined with a google account. How can i get back my bookmarks and passwords? I waited for one hour and password section in browser is still empty and no bookmarks in browser. :(

I came to Firefox Sync via Foxmarks. IIRC, I used to be able to manage different bookmark sets within the same Foxmarks account. Furthermore, logging in to Foxmarks on the web gave me access to the server list of bookmarks, so I could easily back it up to protect against the kind of "initial sync" malfunctions which have been reported several times here.

  1. Numbered list item I use two different logins in my home network: one for everyday work and one for administrative tasks. Is it possible to have separate collections of sync items (e.g. bookmarks, logins) for these two accounts and still use Firefox Syn to sync them between machines, or do I need two different Firefox logins for this?
  2. Numbered list item Is there any way to access the server copy of a bookmark list, other than exporting it from a synced instance of Firefox?
