Hi hello, I have an issue which might be a bug.

I already have 1 Firefox window open. Firefox account is logged on, with sync enabled. I can access my synced bookmarks and extensions are available as usual.

Now, if I open 2nd Firefox window via these methods: 1) right click at Firefox program at taskbar and click 'Open New Window' 2) at other program (e.g. MS Outlook), I clicked the URL in an email and it will open new Firefox window

The issue is, the 2nd, newly opened, Firefox window are not logged in with Firefox account. My synced extensions and bookmarks are not available.

This issue does not occur if I open 2nd Firefox window from within Firefox itself, like clicking the burger menu (3 horizontal lines at top right) and click 'New Window'. That's why I believe this is a bug.

Hope anyone can help.

What the question says. My tablet had no trouble to get the history from all devices, even my old work laptop that I've returned 3 months ago. For some reason I can't get this history to sync back to any FF installation on any of my desktops. Any solutions? I mean other than rooting my tablet and search for the sqlite file manually.

On my Windows PC, I have Firefox set as my Default browser. Whenever I click on a link from another program (email client for instance), it opens a new Firefox window. The issue is that I have to login to the website again, even if its already open in another window.

For instance: Firefox main window - I login to website ABC, sometimes using Multi-factor authentication.

I then click on a link from my email client that also points to website ABC. A new Firefox window opens up and I have to re-authenticate into website ABC.

Its very frustrating having to re-authenticate everytime I click on a link. I am logged into Firefox and have Sync turned on. Am I missing something?

Syncing a new client overwrites my top sites

So I have a Firefox account and always sign in to my browser and enable sync. I then go and manually add my preferred top sites, so they're always available on my new tab page.

I then realise how much I'm enjoying Firefox over Google Chrome and switch my other systems over to Firefox and sign in and enable sync. This doesn't sync the tops sites I've configured in my first install, but worse than that, the new Top sites I get by default on my second install are then synced across to my first installation, wiping out the top sites I've painstakingly set on my first install.

I then remember why I keep returning to Google Chrome, as I'm quite precious about my top sites being as I like them, and Google Chrome handles this perfectly. Whenever I sign in to Chrome, it populates all my top sites, and even puts them in the same order.

Is there a way to get Firefox to correctly remember my top sites, so when I sync a new install (which I do a lot), it doesn't wipe out my preferred top sites replacing them with default links that I'm not interested in?

I've looked for extensions to do this, and have even tried emulating this with a static HTML web page containing the links I want, but even setting a custom page for new tabs or windows to do this isn't as easy as it should be.

I wanted to sync my FF bookmarks on my new PC, but before successful login to FF account on this PC I've reset the password. When I've passed authentication using the updated password, all my bookmarks have disappeared. Now I have no access to the old PC with correct bookmarks stored.

Is it an expected behavior? Is there any chance I can restore the bookmarks?

Thanks in advance.

Hi,

I'm a bit trouble. After the last W10 update, my computer was completly frozen (blue screen every 2 minutes). Then I use the recovery option for my system (keep my datas but reset system).

After that, my first installation was Firefox and to synchronyse my account. But after a little while, it seem's nothing comes to my PC !

This is my single laptop which was in Sync. Then I can't looks on other laptops.

is it possible because I just clean up my system but not format my computer, firefox found the same ID computer and then take my new blank configuration as my new saves ??

I tried to find profiles on my other disks but no way ..

Thanks by advance.

Hello.

I'm really more and more disappointed with FF that I used to love. The sync function is not easy to use, it syncs somewhat randomly. Not user friendly at all, to say the least! A real headache.

I'd like to sync the state disabled/enabled of my extensions. I guess it's not possible according to this page: http://wiki.mozilla.org/Services/Sync/Addon_Sync#Can_I_have_different_enabled_states_on_different_machines.3F Note: services.sync.addons.ignoreUserEnabledChanges is set on default, i.e "false", so it shouldn't "ignore", and services.sync.prefs.sync.addons.ignoreUserEnabledChanges is set on "true", so shouldn't it propagate to another machine?

I don't want different enabled states on different machines, I want the same, but syncing a new machine only download automatically my full list of addons, and they are all activated. Also, they all, or almost, open pages to say things like "Hey, thank you for installing this addon, blablah..." which is particularly irritating, opening one tab after another tab while I'm trying to work.

Profiles, I used to use them a lot, but seem dead or almost, for the benefit of containers. But, according to my understandings, containers are for keeping separate sessions cookies (which was easy to do anyway before with a good cookies managers), but don't allow to have a separate list of addon activated for different uses (addons for programming, addons for playing, etc...)

Anyway, FF, unlike Chrome (that is really more handy for such things that FF), doesn't show the current profile. So we don't know what is the current one, unless letting permanently opened about:profiles or https://accounts.firefox.com/settings/clients. There were extensions to show the current profile in the titlebar, but they are all dead now.

So, containers, profiles, it doesn't matter, but I'd like to have:

- States of the addons synced - Or even better: a separate list of activated addons according to the task I'm doing. (Was that profiles did)

My problem is that my profiles are not local. I use a machine to create a profile, and I need to use this profile on another machine. But it simply doesn't work without using a third-party software and copying all the files. I don't understand why profiles don't sync. Having all my profiles synced and activated at the same time, connected, like I see on accounts.firefox.com/settings/clients, is useless in my opinion. The only good thing of sync is syncing bookmarks, history and login, this works perfectly, but syncing addons, and preferences, is a pain.

I used services.sync.prefs.##### = true, for each of the setting I wanted to sync, but opening a Firefox on a new machine, and syncing, sync nothing of my selected preferences.

There are no syncing way. I don't understand why. When I sync bookmarks by using an online service, it asks me if I want to overwrite the local bookmarks from my distant machine, or the opposite. But here, "sync now", we even don't understand what is synced from what, once we selected the given sync options (bookmarks, logins, etc) in the preference menu.

- How to propagate my about:config setting from a profile or a machine to another one (a fresh start one)?

Thank you.

I set up a new Pop!_OS 20.04 on a PC. I signed into my firefox account to get some bookmarks to help me set up the PC. I signed out of firefox so that I could set up a new firefox account for this PC. I am then unable to create a new account. I am always greeted with a sign-in prompt. There is no way for me to get an account set up form. I tried starting in safe mode. I tried purging firefox and deleting the .mozilla directory. When I go to turn on sync it asks me to sign in only. When I go to https://www.mozilla.org and click on "Get a Firefox Account", it sends me to the sign in page. If I click to "Use a different account" is goes to a sign in page again. If I enter an email and password it tells me "Primary account email required for sign-in" Any help would be appreciated.
