I re-set my password and am trying to log in to FireFox Browser Sync on windows, it says it will send me an authorization code and to enter it, I received the code and entered the code exactly as received, and it says it's wrong. It's rejecting the authorization code I'm receiving from firefox by email, there's no question about it, I'm not making a mistake, entering it exactly as is, capital letters matching the way it was received in the email, even copy pasted it once, tried it 4 times and it keeps rejecting the authorization code it's emailing me...

Please help

I synced my profile, and I retrieved my bookmarks, but I opened my Firefox profile with another version of Firefox, and it erased my bookmarks, and now I can't retrieve my bookmarks from my synced account.

Is there a way for me to get my bookmarks please? Surely it has to be in the database somewhere.

I am having the same problem as https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1459780 https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1479607

I had accidentally deleted the email address I use from my email server before trying to sign back in to Firefox Sync. I added it back, and made sure that it works. However, it is impossible for me to sign in at all any more because I'm getting the "Your Email was just Returned. Mistyped Email?" error.

Please remove my email address from the bounce list so that I can sign in.

I have Mozilla sync'd between my (old) laptop and my phone, and it was a lovely pairing. Old laptop got stolen earlier today, and in setting up my new laptop, I forgot my old password and ended up resetting the password to Firefox Sync on the new computer. I'll hit 'sync now' and nothing happens, no favorites, no tabs, no recent session, nothing.

This computer is running the latest version of mint, and my old computer was running mint 13 I believe. It hasn't been updated in ages but was happily puttering along while I blissfully neglected to update the software to a newer version which may overwork that relic.

We use .cfg file in browser installation directory to set prefs or lock prefs for all users. We have lock pref that block any add-on installation in browser. But when logging in Firefox Account, all addons from "home PC", e.g., syncing with local PC where installation is disabled. How can we prevent that? Thank you.
