Tell me how to fix Yahoo/ sync so I can sign into email AND use sync. I put in the email address & password and the arrow just circles and circles and circles....!

The sign in on Yahoo for my email address worked fine until I set up sync. It's been more than a week & still can't check that email! Help, please.... I'm very sad.

BTW, FF has been my favorite browser for decades!!!

Please respond to: JanPerino3@gmail.com since I can't open texas.cowgirl@sbcglobal.net (on Yahoo). You will note that both emails are ones I commonly use on Firefox. If you need additional email addresses, I will provide those.

Thank you!!! I'm desperate!

Hi, I recently deleted my old Firefox browser on my Mac desktop after downloaded an add on which looked suspicious (see attached picture). When I downloaded a new Firefox browser version 79, every time or after a few times when I reopened the browser, it will ask me to log into my firefox account again (See the pictures). With that old Firefox browser I deleted I never had to do that. So frustrating. Please help. Thanks.

Hi, I tried again to sync addons... And the same issue remains : when noscript addon is synced FF empties all rules in the original profile when sync is made with a new profile. It is a bug right ? As it should have the inverse behaviour : fill the new profile with the rules retrieved in the original profile. Thanks

well I had a fine description typed here but when it went to get debug info it cleared it all out.

I had 260 PW/logins in my list... saved on my android phone in lockwise too. backed up my HP reset to factory setting sent into shop for work

Setup macbook air as temp machine since all my pw are in lockwise hit sync on macbook and lockwise and macbook now have 1 pw/login

when did sync become replace list even it it is empty. I did full disk image restore today after my machine came back from shop but went into firefox guess what the 260 entry list is now the 16 entries I put back manually on macbook air.

I will full disk image restore this machine again.

Can someone tell me please how to guarantee that the 260 pw/logins that I restore will NOT get replaced by lockwise or macbook air!!!!!

HELP! sync should make two lists equal not just replace one list with the other without so much as a prompt IMO.

The main thing I need is help to make sure that when I restore the week old image again, the 260 PW do NOT get replaced from anywhere.... can you please tell me how to do that?

My email is [email] I have no problem sharing my phone if that would be easier Thank you and HELP! Ricc

A while back I created two profiles in Firefox, to separate bookmarks needed for work and private life. Yesterday I unfortunately needed to reinstall macOS, and now, after reinstalling Firefox, the two profiles are no longer separate when I've logged into my Sync account. I can still see two profiles when I go to about:profiles, but opening one or the other does not make a difference. I hope someone knows how I can fix this, thanks in advance!

I've been using the Firefox browser on my devices for the past couple of months (Windows 10, MacBook Pro, iPhone), enabling the Firefox Sync feature on each. The sync seemed to be working, as far as I could tell, although I was only paying attention to open tabs and bookmarks.

But last week, I installed a few new browser extensions on the Windows device, including the official extensions, Facebook Container and Multi-Account Containers.

Since then, I've received notices to sync my devices. I went to to my devices and verified that the sync feature was working. (It appeared to be, but I may have missed something that confirmed it.)

Then yesterday, I received an email titled, "Final Reminder: Complete Sync Setup." Again, I looked at my devices, and I'm not noticing an obvious problem.

Do these messages indicate that something is not syncing properly? Are these messages a result of the container-related extensions that I installed?

I have three devices and one phone. When I make changes on one device I'd like to override the bookmarks on another. But, I'm afraid if I synchronize it's going to just add back the bookmarks that I deleted using the settings on the device that I did not delete or sort bookmarks from. I've been trying to get online and delete the bookmarks that are install with no success. Please advise as to what procedures are for synchronizing successfully so that changes are recorded between computers.
