Hi! I have a primary computer with all bookmarks, history, extensions, etc. I've logged in to another computer and clicked to sync my information, but nothing is coming over. Now I'm worried my bookmarks, etc., have been erased, but I won't have access to my primary computer for several days. Is the sync just not working? Please help, thank you.

Hi,

I'm looking to sync my Firefox account between my desktop and a laptop. I went to the menu, clicked on the sign in button next to "sync and save data", and landed on the account sign in page. However, after I entered my email address for my account, the page hasn't moved on to ask for my password. The blue bar underneath it is currently doing the circling thing and I don't understand why. I can sign into Firefox on its own, but not to sync.

Any help appreciated. Thanks.

I have a FF account and I am signed in on my desktop. I just changed a whole lot of passwords. I want my Android phones to have the same passwords, but I am afraid of syncing the wrong way, if you know what I mean.

So, I want my ANDROID PHONE'S FF BROWSER to get the NEW PASSWORDS from my DESKTOP'S FF ACCOUNT'S BROWSERS.

How do I handle this? Also, I am NOT TECHIE AT ALL.

I added an image, and as you can see, I had to do some work on my desktop requiring setting up W11 several times. And it looks like FF is logged into past versions of my desktop.

I have updated to Firefox 80 in both Ubuntu and Windows and sync stop working. I keep getting "Reconnect to Firefox Account" no matter how many times I did it. I even get every time in my email the notification for the new signin to my account. I tried removing my account and adding it again, but still getting the same error.

Unknown locations in Sync

I have two laptops and a mobile phone that are connected to Firefox and have sync operating. One the laptops shows a location of Wrexham which is approximately correct. The other shows a location of Boardman, OR, United States, a place some 6000 miles away and of which I have never heard. Googling the location gives me no useful information, other than it is a small town with no special characteristics. A screenshot of part of the Firefox Accounts page illustrates what the situation is.

The laptop stated as in Boardman has a location set within Windows. That is not Wrexhan but is only a few miles from there.

I have used iplocation.net which gives me the location of my ISP, in England.

I sometimes use a VPN (for work) and when being used iplocation.net gives a different English location which I think is the locaton of the ISP for my Employer.

I am unsure what is going on here nor do I know what implications there are for my security. I do not seem to be able to fix this.

Can anyone help, please?

I am forced to do a reset after a mother board installation. I haven't found any specific instructions on how to move my passwords and bookmarks to a cloud. I'd prefer to stay in FF and NOT use Microsoft. I'm a carpenter and work in the field and not greatly computer savvy...

Suggestions?

Thanks
