How do I see what data firefox sync has already saved?

I have had problems with sync before, giving me bookmarks I didn't want, etc. But I want to try it again.

I have a Firefox account to log into with sync, but I would like to delete all the data (bookmarks & passwords), and then sync all my firefox browsers to one profile that I have set up on FDE on my laptop.

So I'm thinking I need to first delete all my current data on Firefox Sync, and then log in only with my FDE profile, sync that, and then log in via other browsers and sync those. But how do I make sure that no data gets placed onto my FDE profile from other browsers via sync?

I got a new laptop recently and yesterday I installed Firefox and started up Sync. Today, on my previous laptop, I notice that a couple years worth of history are now missing from the beginning of the time when I used it! What can I do? I have turned off Sync now because someone told me last year to do that when I had a problem with Sync, to keep it from spreading (https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1345759).

"Send Page to Device" and "Send Tab to Device" missing in recent versions!

After I reported this problem earlier (https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1374122), my installation of Firefox on Windows 10 has been auto-updated to Ver. 103.0.2, but the missing "Send Page to Device" and "Send Tab to Device" commands have not been restored yet.

I tested to see whether pages/tabs can be sent back and forth between my Android tablet and PC, as well as whether the Android device is visible on the PC at all, and compared the results between before and after auto-update (88.0.1 and 103.0.2, respectively) . Here is the sum-up:



On PC (88.0.1):

(1) Android device is visible in the "Connected Services" page. (2) It is also listed as destination in the "Send Page to Device" and "Send Tab to Device" commands. (3) Pages/tabs are successfully sent to Android using these commands.


On PC (103.0.2):

(1) Android device is visible in the "Connected Services" page. (2) But the "Send Page to Device" and "Send Tab to Device" commands are not available (see the screen shots below). (3) Therefore, pages/tabs cannot be sent to Android.


On Android, when trying to send a page to PC (88.0.1):

(1) PC is listed as destination in the "Send to other devices" command. (2) Pages are successfully sent to PC using the command.


On Android, when trying to send a page to PC (103.0.2):

(1) PC is listed as destination in the "Send to other devices" command. (2) The command apparently finishes successfully, but the page does not show up on PC.



Though both desktop versions can perfectly sync bookmarks, history, cookies, etc., with Android, it seems something is wrong with Ver. 10x (and 9x as I have reported earlier) in communicating with Android.




[Screen shots]

(Green = 88.0.1, Blue = 103.0.2, Red = Android)

  1. 1: 88.0.1 Version info
  2. 2: 88.0.1 "Connected Services"
  3. 3: 88.0.1 Right click on page
  4. 4: 88.0.1 Right click on tab
  5. 5: Android (connected to 88.0.1) "Send to other devices"
  6. 6: 103.0.2 Version info
  7. 7: 103.0.2 "Connected Services"
  8. 8: 103.0.2 Right click on page
  9. 9: 103.0.2 Right click on tab
  10. 10: Android (connected to 103.0.2) "Send to other devices"

On every device I own, on 3 different network types and multiple locations, "password123" (not my actual password) works. Logs me straight in. No issues whatsoever. I can log in, log out, uninstall and reinstall, no issues whatsoever. Suddenly, on ONE device, "password123" will not work. It's "incorrect" and yet, here I am still logging in and out using the "incorrect" password on 2 iPhones, a Galaxy phone, Ubuntu, Mac, and a work Windows PC. I had to make a whole separate freaking account just to post this question, because (brilliant work here) you HAVE to be logged into a mozilla account to ask them for help.

Yes I checked the username - several times, it's correct. Yes I cleared cache and cookies and history. Yes I tried uninstalling and reinstalling the program. Yes I made sure it was up to date. Yes I tried older versions of firefox. I even tried (thank heaven its a brand new laptop) completely wiping the entirety of the device and starting from out of the box brand new.

So is my password "password123" or do I now have new and unknown surprise passwords for every device I try to log in on?

I've got an old Windows XP computer running version 52.9.0. I'm trying to sign in to Sync (so I can sync with my new Windows 10 computer) but when I try on the old machine I get this error message:

Blocked by Content Security Policy

This page has a content security policy that prevents it from being loaded in this way.

Firefox prevented this page from loading in this way because the page has a content security policy that disallows it.

I've signed in on the new computer, not that it matters.

Is the any way I can connect to Sync?
