Hi, I have several systems and I'd like to disable web notifications in all of them. I thought I can achieve that with synchronization feature but even though 'sync options' checkbox is checked, some settings are not syncing, eg. 'Block Notification requests' or 'Check if Firefox is default browser' or disabling automatic updates.

Is there a way to sync those options automatically so I don't have to click them out by hand everywhere?

I am transitioning from one computer for work and home to a work-only machine, and would like to keep my work-related bookmarks synced between both devices, but not to sync all of my personal bookmarks to the work machine (while still keeping the full sync options between home computer and my iOS devices). Is there a way to control which bookmarks or bookmark folders get synced between specific machines? Or to export/import only a selection of the bookmarks?

Primary computer is MacOS Mojave running FF on beta channel, currently at 79.0b7. Work machine is Windows 10 on regular channel (not beta), don't have with me/open so not sure of current number, but downloaded this week.

Last night Firefox updated automatically and the new version requires signing in to the Firefox account to transfer any passwords, bookmarks, and history. Of course my password for Firefox is in the Firefox passwords folder. If I reset the password my data will be destroyed for "security reasons." I have important passwords and bookmarks that will cost me days of time to replace and some that can never be replaced. Is there some way to get this data back? Why was there no warning that this was going to happen? I now find that there is a process to protect the old data after it is too late to use it. What idiot implemented this system without telling the users it was going to happen and how to make sure their data wasn't lost?

Hi

I was just looking at my Firefox Account. When I looked at the Devices & apps area I was a little shocked.

I would like to know what device this is please, Web Session, Chrome Mobile 83.

I can see options for Adding a device, Removing a device, but no where can i find to be able to look and see the device details like IP address etc, that other browser providers do.

Can you please provide me with the details, as I have no idea what this is and would like to know.

I have a new desktop computer. Previously, i was using a laptop. The laptop has all my bookmarks and prefs, etc. I have both on right now with Firefox pulled up. Every time I try to sync it takes me to a screen that tries to get me to sync to a mobile device. I need to sync from computer to computer. This is not an option being offered. Every single time it takes me down this path and only this path no matter what I click on. You can see from the image it's wanting me to use a phone, but I'm not trying to sync to a phone. If you click on "I'll do this later" hoping for more options you instead get an ad for Firefox Monitor. This is driving me insane. I've even stupidly turned on my laptop camera and tried to scan the QR code. Of course it didn't work.

I've woken up to discover that my passwords have all vanished. My bookmarks are available. My usernames are suggested, but my passwords have all disappeared. I checked "saved passwords", and it's totally empty. I really hope it's fixable. I've always proceeded with auto-fill. There are passwords I haven't manually typed in over three years.

I am having a PC with windows 10 with Firefox installed and have the same in my android too, i do surfing in the PC but would love to share clipboard across my device without using any third party apps (just within Firefox) like how we have an option to send the tabs across devices (image attached) this is similar to that but can send copied text to device where we can click on the notification to copy the item

if there is any feature like that available in Firefox please let me know

I just received my new MacBook Air and am trying to use the synch to synch the above-referenced items from my old MacBook Pro. I am NOT synching to a phone. Each time I choose to not continue w/a QR code or SMS message, I'm taken to a screen about FF Monitor and am never able to enter "another device", which is where I began, "Connect another device" - any assistance or work around will be gladly appreciated. Thank you in advance, DD

I am having issues with Firefox NOT syncing across all devices and desktops consistently.

I have gone through all devices and desktops and made sure the settings are setup to allow for syncing of open tabs, but the syncing is not consistent across all devices and some devices aren't even showing up in the synced tabs window. Any help would be great.
