Hi,

Thanks in advance for any help.

I've setup my Firefox account in another PC and and after sync I cannot access the Lockwise sync passwords...

I cannot activate and setup a new device specific primary password. I've tried to reset it like seen here in other posts but I receive the error "can't change master password"... (i get it in portuguese).

Any suggestions?

Windows was corrupted forcing me to do a clean install on which then I needed to restore everything but forgot my Firefox login password. Later on realizing that I lost my personal data after resetting the password, I lost all my data unfortunately not saving my keys before.

Is there anything I can do do get my old profile back with my data restored from the servers?

the mid June Best Upate Ever update did not display well (Top toolbar was 1/4 of page) Plus Firefox wanted to ditch my passwords and bookmarks in Refresh, so I panicked, immediately shut of the internet and restored W10 to an earier date. I had a download of v46 but could only update to version 60, as it was the last version to accept my saved profile.

Will I have to stay with v60 forever now,? or is there a way to be upated again and not affect syncing a "refreshed" profile to my computer and phone. I really need my bookmarks and passwords. Oh, and has the display issue with W10 been fixed?

Hello, After a Firefox browser Mac OS update (89.0) the "send to device" doesn't work anymore. It is not really that it does not work, the function is no longer available through the three points that were located in the toolbar. The three dots have disappeared from the browser.

On the contrary, in my Android Firefox (89.1.1 Build # 2015812947) the three points are still in place, and therefore I can access "Send to Device". The function was working yesterday. I was sending few Tabs from my Android to my Mac. But not today, the dots are there, the "Send to Device also, but is not working.

Also from Android to my PC is working, I can receive Tabs from my Firefox installed in my Android. I can't find the version. From PC well, the three dots also have disappeared from the browser.

Any help appreciate, thatks

I have 3 systems that I want to use Firefox Sync on.

PC: everything. Laptop 1: everything but addons and settings. Laptop 2: bookmarks only.

I cannot make the sync settings persistent. After every sync all system sync settings reverted to the latest sync system. For example, set sync setting for laptop 2, then after sync started on 3 machines all 3 only sync bookmarks now; set sync for laptop 1, then after sync everything is on Laptop 2. Chrome did this really well so I can isolate some sync features on certain machines.

How can I do this on Firefox?

Hi there,

I've been a fan of the multi-container feature for quite some time, and I enjoyed it most of the time. The only thing that annoys me, however, is that eveytime after I've removed some default container named in Chinese(I'm a Chinese and my Firefox UI is in Chinese as well), Firefox always added those same container back! Everytime! I just want to keep the containers that I've named in English and nothing else, and yet Firefox doesn't seem to understand that. It seems Firefox thinks I, as a Chinese, would definitely want those containers named in Chinese, which I don't. Hope you understand, and someone from the dev team can help fix this, because other than this specific issue, I don't have any complaint about Firefox, which is just a great browser and is keeping get better and better!

Thanks and have a great day.

I had a firefox account with an old email address - somehow I missed it when going through all my accounts and moving them to the new email address. Now the old email address is completely gone, and I can't delete the firefox account without receiving the code at my old email address. Is there another way someone with Mozilla could delete the account for me - I just don't want it out there.

Hello.

I use firefox on all my devices: home pc, work pc and smartphone. And when first time i found "Send tab" function it was aweosome. It worked with a little delay, but always worked. I'm not sure since which update it stopped working between pc browsers. When i sending tab to smartphone, it still works, but when i'm sending from desktoop browser to another desktop browser, it says "Sent" but other browser never recieves it. At some point i've found article where it was mentioned that it might not work because of proxies set in both of my desktop browsers (i can't find it now to post the link). If proxies is to blame, is there a way to fix this? Maybe exclude specific address in proxy settings? If not, what migth be the reason?

Any advice is appreciated.

My main login email is with my ISP. My second email is with gmail. However, each has the same letters before the @: MyUserName@isp.com MyUserName@gmail.com

When I try to add my second email it is rejected on the grounds that it must differ from the first.

To me, it is different it has 'gmail.com' instead of 'isp.com'.

Hope you can help.
