I try to add the two-step-authentication to my account, but when I scan the QR-code and enter the generated security code I get the error message "two-step-authentication required"; so it tells me I have to enable two-step-authentication before I can enable two-step-authentication?

I had to update firefox to current version to pay a bill on a web site. I did it. I was recommended to sync another device during install, I did that too. I worked for a few hours on firefox just now, then it crashed. It reported data it had but now I have nothing. No history, no bookmarks, NOTHING. I logged in, my username and password worked find but it's like a fresh install, no data. Over 10 years of history, hundreds and hundreds of pages and passwords all gone. I synched to my phone as it insisted I install another device. Supposedly that was done but I have no idea how to use that or what it can do. They claimed it was a backup.

I'm at a total loss.

Firefox Account verification problem

Dear Volunteer,

First of all, I have to thank you to build the community in your freetime. I've changed my computer. I have 2 firefox accounts, the first for private browsing, the second one for work browsing, and I use them via different Firefox profiles. The configuration of the private account (adam**********y@gmail.com) was succesful. But the configuration of the work account (s****i@orfk.police.hu) was not. I've used this accounts since 2013, and I'd reconfigured them so many times, and there wasn't any problem until now. The actually problem is the unreceived verigfication email. I've tried the actions below: - checking email working -> Perfectly works. - checking spam folder -> There is no any mail in the spam folder. - adding accounts@firefox.com to contact list -> Done. I did not get the verification emails. The administrators probably changed the security settings. I cannot log in, I cannot sync. I tried to send you this letter from my work e-mail, but I did not find any support address, just this option. How can I resolve this problem? Thans for your help.

Kind regards,

Adam Sterbinszky

Where is my user profile stored - on my computer or on Firefox computer? I need to re-install Firefox on a new computer. Will I lose my Folders (left side of screen), or are they safely stored with Firefox? Will they reappear when I install Firefox on the new computer?
