Passwords not being sync on a recently synced device

Hello! Today I power on my computer and for some reason my Firefox account was not configured on the browser. I just logged in with my Firefox account and wait until it finishes syncing all. After a few minutes it finished "correctly". I said "Correctly" because I was very surprised when I detect that all my saved passwords were not being sync. I tried with another computer that has the same Firefox account and it has all the passwords, but nothing appears on my computer. I tried several things like restart computer, logout and login again, checked if key.db file exists on my home, etc but nothing works. I just found one difference between the devices (both are Linux and bot are Fedora): On the device that I can see all the passwords Firefox version is 73. On the device that I described before that I cannot see any password Firefox version is 76. Can it be affecting the sync? I'm worried about to update Firefox on the devices that passwords are being displayed and lost it on both devices.

My OS is Fedora 31 and my firefox version is 76.

Thanks!

I get that I need to have certain addons only for the developer Version, but I've been having difficulty keeping up with what I need for one and ones that meet my specific needs otherwise. I can only type using one finger at a time due to my autism causing poor coordination. I've been having trouble keeping my gmail synced up in places and it's the mail one I use. But I can't sync my password to different devices as it always asks for a password I haven't used before. I am happy to keep the addons proper on the developer version, and not use it for anything until I ca get it set up without having to re-sync everything. Do you have a suggestion for limited motor ability?

I am using tenfourfox on my iMac g4 and Firefox for Mac on my MacBook Pro. I wanted to use the sync so I could share book marks and things with My iMac g4. I made the account on my Mac Book Pro and the went to sign in on My iMac g4. I entered my email then it came back with the unexpected error.

I looked at other posts from TenFourFox with those that had this error and they said it was on the sync side not software of TenFourFox.

Could you please help

Thank you

I have my plugins synced through Firefox Sync. For development I'm using Firefox Developer Edition (FDE).

There are times I do not want to have all plugins en-/disabled in all browser. e.g. I don't need a form filler plugin all the time in my regular FF instance. But I mostly need it all day in the FDE instance.

Problem starts by disabling a plugin in the regular FF instance. Because this disables the plugin through sync in all other instances.

I'm looking for s possibility to disable plugins "locally". So only disable it for the currently running FF instance, and not propagate the state through sync.

A separate "DEV profile" might help, but I don't want to deal with sep. profiles, as the tabs would be synced in this different profile for example.

I can imagine that this is kind of an edge case scenario. But maybe somebody knows a way around this.

I have been using Comodo's Ice Dragon for many years but, as all development stopped after Firefox v65, I now wish to go back to Firefox, however I need all my open tabs from Ice Dragon in this current version of Firefox v76. Both browsers are synced and indeed CID's tabs do appear in my Synced tabs menu but I prefer to have them on the top as open tabs. Is there a way to do that other than by opening them one at a time please?

Hello everyone,

I had Firefox Sync. on an old computer and I removed this computer from the devices synchronized around early September 2018. Is there a way to know the exact date when I've removed this synchronization ? It would help me a lot to know that.

Also, is there a way to know from which device bookmarks/history/preferences have been added/modified. I'd like to show that all the bookmarks I've added to my account have been added from my current device.

Thanks a lot for your precious help, Best regards, Quentin

Firefox tabs not syncing between iPhone and macbook pro

Hello!

While I do have 97 tabs open in Firefox on my iPhone, NONE of them appear in my 'Synced Tabs' Sidebar in Firefox on my macbook pro.

To allay the immediate and obvious questions: + Yes, I'm running the most up-to-date version of Firefox on my mac (76.0.1) and on my iPhone (version 25 with no additional update available on the App Store) + Yes, I am signed-in on both devices. + Yes, I am signed-in to the SAME account on both devices. + Most surprisingly: YES AND YES, I can SEND a specific TAB from the mac to the iPhone as well as SEND A--ie ONE at a time--TAB from the iPhone to the Mac. Whaaaaaat... why??

(a quick PS: the all-caps words are all-caps-ed for emphasis on how unbelievable this is--I'm far more surprised than I am angry; I have faith in the Firefox community being able to solve this)

To reiterate, despite the situation described above, ZERO tabs appear in the list of Synced Tabs! There is a (fairly meta) screenshot attached below which shows the empty Synced Tabs Sidebar.

THINGS I have ALREADY tried: 1) I have tried signing out and signing back in on the Mac. 2) I have tried pressing/running a 'sync' on both devices. 3) I have searched for archived help files and found one suggesting I look for a "userChrome.css" file in the profile folder buried in the hidden view of my ~/library--I did this and found no such file. 4) I tried signing out and clicking on the 'sign-in to sync tabs' button IN THE Synced Tabs Sidebar ITSELF; I was able to login but... no change. 5) I tried RENAMING BOTH devices. The renaming synced on both sides, but THE TABS ARE STILL MISSING.  :/

I've run out of immediate ideas... I turn to you, here, for help. Please help.

Cheers, MitzvahGuy

Honestly, I don't care about Sync. I only use my desktop computer. My cookies are always set to be saved. I never delete them. But every time I open Firefox 76, I see the Important News page about profile changes with a log/in request on the right side. In Preferences, I set a custom URL for my homepage. That did not change what I see first when I open Firefox 76. I never sign out, just open and close the Firefox window, and all it is set to save all of my login information. How can I go straight to my home tab without seeing this one about profiles changes?
