Hi,

I'm new to Firefox multi-account containers and I want to now put all already synced data (all my browser history, logins, bookmarks, ...) into the "personal" container. Is this possible?

If it is, there is a secondary question, is it possible to turn off synchronization of a specific container on another device?

Use case: I want to have a work container that contains all work related data and a personal container that contains all my personal data. I want to be able to access the work container on my personal laptop, but don't want to necessarily access my personal container on my work laptop. I don't really want all that stuff to be synced to my work laptop.

Once again, for the fifth time, I cannot sign in to sync my account. No email was sent. Yes, again, I checked all the possible places. Its still a valid email just like the other four times. Just like every other time, the other three machines on my network are signed in. So, once again, please unlock the account so I can synch my machine. Thanks

Hello, after setting up Account Sync in Firefox, I received an email with a subject of something like "Your friendly reminder: how to finish synchronization setup". I am a Ukrainian user with an Ukrainian IP and English settings in my firefox account. But for some reason, the email sent to me was in a foreign language (Russian) which I don't know. I have no idea what is written there and why the email is in Russian. Is there a way to receive emails in Ukrainian or English in the future and not in Russian? With regards, Nick

I don't want to sync work and home browsing. So I do not log in to Firefox at home. A few days ago, I checked my worke webmail which is a GSuite account. Firefox recognized my login and this morning synced my browsing history.

Normally I have up to 60 tabs open and I leave the browser on all the time. Nice and simple to check in on all the things that interest me or things I want to come back to.

You got it, This morning, all my open tabs are gone. All my local history is gone. I now have a shortcut menu bar full of links to work resources that I can't even access as they are behind the work firewall.

Could there not have been a backup made of what I had open? Does it not make sense that if there are tabs open it is not up to FF to decide to close them? Could there not have been a prompt that asked "Hey we want to sync." "This will close all your open tabs" "Is this OK?" Look, I know you want to make it simple and convenient, but please don't assume you know what that means to everyone. You ruined my day, not made it simple or better. Sincerely, kkrofft

When I tried to reconnect I discovered that my email address had an extra letter and I was unable to receive the verification code. The solution was to click the firefox account icon in the toolbar. I did but there wasn't a drop down menu that would open my account page and allow me to add a secondary email address.

I had no access to my computer (a Mac) for a month, and sent many tabs from Firefox on my iPhone.

Today, I log onto my computer, macOS starts Firefox automatically (it was open when I shut the computer down), I get a notification that 71 tabs have been sent to Firefox (yay), but then when Firefox opens, I only see one window, containing the Firefox session restore, and nothing else. When I click "restore session", I get my month-old session, but not the 71 tabs.

Where can I get a list of all the tabs I sent to my devices?

Thanks!

About FF sync-ing feature:

As a test I deleted one book mark from FF desktop. Then I did a sync. I was expecting for that bookmark to be restored from the data that had been previously uploaded to the FF account. But it did not.

So the question begs to be asked, Why doesnt FF account have backups of our bookmarks (and other data) that we can download onto our desktop when needed?
