I have a very old (~2008) Firefox sync account that I would like to access. I know my email and password. But the password is 6 characters, and the new minimum requirement is 8 characters. The login form will not allow me to login with my old password due to the form validation, and if I perform a reset, I will lose data I am looking for. So, I need to know how I can access my old account.

Thanks in advance for any help you can offer.

Hi, I'm a Firefox user in China. I originally signed up for Firefox Account and then saw the Chinese version of that (i.e. 火狐通行证), is they one instance of FxA? It seems that I cannot log in to 火狐通行证 using my Firefox Account email address but that's rather confusing.

So I tried to update my email address on my account and it says I already have an account with that email. I tried to log into that account but it apparently had 2FA in place that I cannot recover. I don't care at all about any of the sync data that is in the account tied to that email, is there really no way to have the account deleted so I can reuse that email address?

Hi all, I just purchased a new computer, and the first thing that I did was download Firefox onto it. However, I've become frustrated over the last few days, as even though I immediately signed into my Firefox account upon opening the browser, when I close it and then open it back up later on everything is signed out, including my Firefox profile. How do I make it so that every time I open my browser, it is already signed in, and I don't have to type in my username and password over and over again. Thanks in advance for your help!

Hi, I'm using both Linux and Windows on my computer. I've got problem with firefox sync, on Windows I'm using program like IDM and also use it's extension on Firefox. Meanwhile, on Linux this extension is useless. If I turned it off while on Linux, when I relogin to Windows, this extension also get turned off, I understand this is due to Firefox sync nature, but its so ineffective if I've got to turn it on and off while switching between OS.

Is there any workaround for this?

TIA

When starting computer new, you can load Firefox okay. After closing it out several times, the icon on desk top will no longer open Firefox......nor will going to programs and clicking on Firefox. The only way you can get it to work again is to reboot the computer, but then you can only bring up Firefox several more times without haviing to reboot. I've even tried to restore computer to previous dates to no avail. If I use Internet Explorer to bring up Firefox the same thing happens. I've tried deleting Firefox and reinstalling, but it tells me that Firefox needs to be closed to continue. I can't see where it is open. Advise

Firefox Sync does not sync bookmarks from Android to macOS

Hi!

With the current version of Firefox installed on a Macbook and an Android phone and Firefox Sync (only bookmarks selected) setup on both of them, I can sync on both device without any error message.

After the sync, there is a new "Desktop Bookmarks" folder on the Android phone which contains all bookmarks from the Mac – nice!

On the Mac, however, the bookmarks from the Android phone don't show up. Searching for a bookmark created on the Android phone prior to the sync returns nothing on the Mac.

In the old days, there used to be a top level item "Mobile Bookmarks" on the desktop browser. There's no such thing on my Mac browser unless if I enable it explicitly with "about:config". But even in this "Mobile Bookmarks" folder, the bookmarks from the Android phone don't show up and the "Mobile Bookmarks" folder itself is removed again after the next app restart.

I've already verified the places.sqlite on the Mac with "about:support".

Thanks a lot for your hints!

Cheers, -sven
