I was trying to use the sync function on my MacBook Pro. However, the browser does not seem to log in at all. In the top right menu, it still shows the "sign in" button, instead of my email address. (see the attached pictures which I captured from my mac and a virtual machine running Firefox ESR on Debian. Another test on the flatpak version on the vertural machine apears to be normal.

Checks on account activities indicates the login histroy exsits, yet the syncing function remains unavailable.

the browser on the Mac is Version 102.0.1 (64-bit) which apears to be up to date the browser on the virtual machine is Version 91.11.0esr (64-bit)

information for the systems and machines can be found in the pictures attached.

How can I sync my Firefox browser? It always asks for my Primary Password. I tried resetting my password, deleting/recreating my account, and I'm always asked for the "Primary Password". I can log into Firefox Accounts with my e-mail and known password, but I can't reach the sync option because I'm always asked for the "Primary Password", which seems to be out of sync with my Firefox Account.

Good morning, good afternoon or good evening to whoever is reading this,

Yesterday in the early hours of the morning my Firefox updated, and after it restarted following this I lost my session - I have tried to restore my previous session, and sync to the previous session, but both have been unsuccessful. How can I restore that session?

Synchronise options show two sessions - image attached - the new session (red) following the reboot, and the old session (green) that I want to go back to, how can I do this?

I'd really appreciate any advice.

Thank you very much.

Best regards, Sarah

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, I am trying to sync my Firefox account with a new laptop. Unfortunately, I am asked to verify a code sent to my e-mail, but my e-mail password is stored in my Firefox account so I can't open it. I am unable to access my e-mail any other way at the moment. Please contact me ASAP with a way to unlock my account so I can get my passwords. My regular account e-mail is [email-removed].

Assigning a new device ID for Sync after having cloned Firefox settings to another device

Hi,

first of all thank you all in the community for your amazing work on Firefox!


I have cloned my $HOME (including ./.mozilla/firefox/) to another Linux device.

Now I realize that changing the Firefox Sync device name on the new device would also change it for the other device when checking "Connected Services" https://accounts.firefox.com/settings. I also can only see the new device name when using "Send to device" from any device.

I guess I have to unlink my new device and somehow assign it a new device ID for Firefox Sync to recognize the new device. How can I do that?

I recently moved from Opera to Firefox, and moved all of my passwords by making a CSV file then importing them to Firefox, but they’re not syncing? While on my PC it shows all of the passwords, my phone only shows my password for my Firefox account, the only password I made rather than importing. Any help will be very much appreciated.
