Every time I have started Firefox since November 14 (or so), I have been getting sync errors.

Official status page: https://services.mozilla.com/status/

Sample error log: https://onedrive.live.com/redir?resid=90EF9D0CFFFF0B22!50647&authkey=!ACUOT1NEZTynJsk&ithint=file%2ctxt

Is there anything I can do about this, or is the sync server really down?

I am not receiving any emails to resent my password. This is utterly frustrating. Firefox already has my email as JMARKSCHWARTZ at GMAIL dot COM which is correct so why am I not receiving any emails. I need to reset my password because I forgot what it was. It should be an EASY process to reset one's password. Thank you.

Mozilla Firefox 34.0.5 for Windows. After update from 33.1.1 Sync stops working, does not automatically login (Reconnect to Sync is showed instead of the Sync account name). Reconnecting to sync only works for the current session (restarting Firefox disables auto login). No error logs on wave\logs directory.

Thank you for your help.

Best regards.

Having set up sync, I assumed info from all my devices would be merged, not so. I set up sync on my desktop, then synced my laptop and all the info from the laptop disappeared. There were a lot of useful bookmarks there but I cannot now find them. Can I recover previous setting/bookmarks/history when a new device is synced? Also why is the no warning as to what will happen to browser information on subsequent devices when they are synced. Horrible thought also comes, have I lost my log in data that may have been unique to the laptop?

When I get my bookmarks the way I want them on my computer and delete the ones I do not want it gets messed up. I have 4 computers on my account and every time I sync it brings up old book marks. I have deleted all book marks from my computer and set up a new sync account then deleted all book marks on my other computers. Then I set up the new sync account on all the computers and still brings up Book marks. There should not be any book marks because I deleted all book marks from all computers before I set up the new account. I have done this 2 times and it they come back. How can I clear all my accounts and start over???????????

Hi,

I want to switch from Chrome to Firefox but I have an issue with the Sync feature. It always shows the following error: "Sync encoutered an error while syncing: Unknown error. Sync will automatically retry this action."

I already tried this workaround but it did not work: delete my Sync account, completely reset my Firefox profile, import my Chrome bookmarks (using an HTML file), setup a new Sync account (using the same address email then the previously deleted one). But I still get the error message.

I've seen in other threads that it could be an issue with the history so I also tried to delete it but it did not work either.

Here is my last sync-log file: https://pastebin.mozilla.org/8219943

Thanks for your help.

I just updated to FF 35.0.1 from the version immediately previous. Had previously updated to the new sync and everything was working perfectly. Now on one computer, I keep getting "sync encountered an error while syncing: Icorrect account name or password. Sync will automatically retry this action". I check my preferences and it tells me to sign in. I try to sign in and I keep getting the same error. I know my password is correct, as it works on my laptop and my android device without error. At some point after attempting to log in, I get a notification that "sync is enabled and will begin momentarily", however, I still show as logged out and the same error message comes up. This is the computer that I sync all the others to, so it is most important that sync works here.

I am running windows 7 SP1 with all the latest updates. My last completed sync with one minute prior to the update of FF.

I set up a new password for google at home, using firefox browser. When I logged into my computer at work, the new password was automatically migrated, without my doing anything. I fear that if someone has access to my gmail (hacked my last password...that's why I changed it), they will also have access to my new gmail passord automatically as well.

Is this possible, and if not, how does it migrate automatically without the migration going to the hacker as well? thanks
