Syncing multiple existing PC - bookmark data deletion process?

Machines are Win10 and Win 11. Current FF = 107.0.2 I have several PC's, previously NOT synced. All have overlapping bookmarks - some unique, others the same. My quest… (read more)

Machines are Win10 and Win 11. Current FF = 107.0.2 I have several PC's, previously NOT synced. All have overlapping bookmarks - some unique, others the same. My question has to do ONLY with bookmarks. My main concern is how to do this across multiple different machines - not all online at the same time - and NOT LOSE DATA!

1. When I sync machine A with machine B, I assume entries that are different are copied to the server AND then duplicated to the machine that did not have it.  Q:  Is the item that determines the uniqueness the NAME or the URL?

2. For entries common to both machines: copied to server, left alone on both machine. Q: To be considered the same - do they need to have both same NAME and Url? 3a. Same name but different url? What happens? 3b Same url but different name? What happens?

............................ Now assume we have 2 synced machines with identical bookmarks. What are the rules / priority sequence concerning the data interactions (specifically deletion ) when one machine is offline and the other adds / deletes a bookmark, and the offline machine has made some additions and deletions before it comes back online (eg. signed in)

TIA. Clifton

Send tabs: allow seldom used device in the list

Hi, I am a big fan of Firefox Sync in general, and of the "send tab to other device" feature in particular. I have Firefox on all my devices (Android phone, iPad, PC, work laptop and a laptop in a cabin) and while I'm browsing, I do send tabs to other devices a lot, because it's a cool stuff to checkout, but not in the moment, or not in that context: news articles or blog posts discovered on the couch but relevant to work, some items I see in the shop but I want to check dimensions prior to buying, some cool idea to check out while at the cabin, etc. My day-to-day browsing experience relies heavily on that feature.

My issue is that one of the device (laptop in the cabin) is used only randomly, with sometimes weeks between it's turned on again. And after around 2 weeks, that entry disappears from the possible devices I can send the tab too. I do understand where it comes from, as it allows keeping a clean and meaningful list, I can live with that, no worries.

But is there a way to "keep alive" a device beyond these two weeks? At the minimum, something on the mozilla account's device list, like a "confirm still relevant" button next to the "sign out" one.

Thanks Dietmar

Can't Restore Profile After Changing Password But It Still Exists on Another Device? Any Way To Restore It?

I just switched to a new computer and I believe I changed my Firefox Sync password without realizing it deletes my entire profile (I only noticed the warning after going to change it a second time!) - which I would really like to get back. On my iPad, which I moved from, my old bookmarks still show up in their entirety when I hit "bookmarks" - and everything else seems to be there. Firefox on the iPad is asking me to sign in but I don't want to do that, in case it erases everything there. Is there any way to retrieve my profile either from the iPad, on which it still seems to exist in some form, or by another method? Thank you.

Hello,

a few weeks ago, I had to synchronize my firefox from the PC of a friend in order to access my bookmarks. His profile was a local one (w/o synchronization). My friend now needs to access several of his own bookmarks and passwords. I wanted to revert to the previous profile but cannot find a way to perform this. Could you please explain me the way to perform this without loosing the information of his profile?

Thank you very much in advance.

Best regards from Germany,

Hi All

I have my account set up on the original laptop. I have just opened my new laptop and logged in to firefox. I have set to sync including passwords and logins. I can see both open Firefox accounts on my laptops simultaneously. They are the same account and they have been synced repeatedly. However my passwords and logins are not appearing on the new laptop. They only show on the old laptop. Why?

Hi there,

I've been using firefox as my main browser and I've created a account and using it all the time for syncing the settings, bookmarks, logins, extensions etc.

BUT due to some unwanted (really irritating) search suggestion were being shown to me by firefox, I had to uninstall firefox from my system.

    • Throughout the process, I'd kept syncing ON always!!

But when I installed firefox again and after loggedin, I'm syncing everything but this is restoring (syncing) very old data which doesn't have my latest bookmarks, extenstions & saved logins!!

How DO I get my all data???

URGENT PLEASE!! THANK YOU
