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?

I've reinstalled my PC. First thing first I downloaded FF and installed it. Login to Firefox Sync. And it's empty. No history, no tabs, no passwords, everything is gone. I've check that I logged into correct account. And yes I can track many previous emails from this account. Why did Sync lost all data? Is there a history that I can use to restore my lost data? Thanks!

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?

This is for login to Mozilla and Firefox Sync.

Roboform password keeper cannot fill in user or pw on Mozilla login page

Please see below, this discussion with Roboform tech that RF cannot fill in username or pw on Mozilla login page. Is it really Mozilla’s intention to make it impossible for a password keeper program to store and login to Mozilla on the Firefox browser, but to force people to use some other browser to do such a login that customers may have to do several times a day?

“Thank you for your message. We have reviewed and responded to your message "RF sees no forms to fill on Mozilla Firefox login page" (#1059819).

========================================================

Natalia replied (2021/06/13 04:49 pm EDT): Hello.

Firefox prohibits access to this URL to extensions, so RoboForm cannot save a Login for this address when you visit it in Firefox.

If you try to use this URL in any other browser, you will be able to save a Login and then use it to log in your Firefox account.

========================================================

You wrote (2021/06/13 11:33 am EDT): RF sees no forms to fill on Mozzilla login page. I've tried reinstalling Moz and RF, no help. RF still works on other pages as always. There are some file(s) attached - Log in RFSS to see them.

========================================================

-- Best Regards, RoboForm Support”

Mozilla Support, I look forward to your reply. As it is now, I can only login to Mozilla using my long, strong pw, by copying it from secure storage location and pasting in...very slow and tedious. Thanks for your consideration.

Best regards, Tim Warlick

So based to https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1242818 the option mentionned in about:config doesn't exist anymore.

in palce of that it has been replaced I guess by services.sync.prefs.sync.extensions.activeThemeID Well this option doesn't do shit. I still got my theme sync even with restarting the browser. It's very disappointing.

Hi, my machine choked and died on the latest Windows update. I tried every trick I know, but eventually had to admit defeat and nuke'n'boot. Most' 'of my stuff was either backed up or kept on a non-OS drive, but I needed to reinstall Firefox. When I did, I found there is a limit to how many tabs Sync willl display at once from another device. That limit is 1,271 tabs, which is not all of mine - I'm pretty sure I had more than that open in a single one' 'of my seven open windows (though probably only the one window had that many).

Also, with the new Firefox update, while I can open all 1,271 at once, that just leads to Firefox crashing. When similar things happened in the past, I could open, say, fifty at a time, and kill Firefox's process every time it became too much for my computer, then reopen firefox with all those tabs open but not active, however with FF 89 I only seem to be able to open one or all.

To make matters worse, those 1,271 tabs I can see seem to be randomised each time, or at least randomly ordered, so I wouldn't even be able to methodically open all 1,271 with my usual method of killing firefox and reopening it.

Is there any way I can send the 1,271 straight to bookmarks, or open the entire session from the old install, or view more than the 1,271, or open the old synced tabs view, where I could open as many or as few as I wanted to, instead of all or (basically) nothing?

Thanks!

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?

I have two laptops and a mobile phone that are connected to Firefox and have sync operating. One the laptops shows a location of Wrexham which is approximately correct. The other shows a location of Boardman, OR, United States, a place some 6000 miles away and of which I have never heard. Googling the location gives me no useful information, other than it is a small town with no special characteristics. A screenshot of part of the Firefox Accounts page illustrates what the situation is.

The laptop stated as in Boardman has a location set within Windows. That is not Wrexhan but is only a few miles from there.

I have used iplocation.net which gives me the location of my ISP, in England.

I sometimes use a VPN (for work) and when being used iplocation.net gives a different English location which I think is the locaton of the ISP for my Employer.

I am unsure what is going on here nor do I know what implications there are for my security. I do not seem to be able to fix this.

Can anyone help, please?

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.
