Hi,

I'm using Firefox over various devices and systems.

For instance: - Firefox binary downloaded from Mozilla website and executed over Debian Testing - Firefox from Arch Linux official repositories in Arch systems

My doubt is: could this cause any problem with the Sync function? Or Sync has the flexibility to allow syncing between a wide specter of Firefox installations

For instance: Could I add Fennec from F-Droid to my LineageOS smartphone or Firefox-ESR from Debian repositories to my desktop machine, log in with my account in all of them and synchronize all the sessions without problems?

Thanks a lot in advance!, and let me know if I should add any technical information.

Kind regards!

Hi,

I have created an account a couple of mouths ago and don't use it since. I need to restore my firefox profile so I decide to use the synchronisation. Unfortunately, I can't remeber my login. I have the password and synchronisation key but not my login. How can I recover it ? Thank you !

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?

Can't complete two-step authentication enabling process

I have a problem with enabling two-step authentication for my Mozilla account. There have been several questions regarding issues with two-step authentication, but none of them applies to my case, so I started another one.

When I try to enable 2SA, there are seemingly no problems. When I scan the QR code and enter the 6-digit security code, I don't get the "invalid two-step authentication code" message. I do get the 8 10-digit recovery codes. After I enter one of them I get a prompt saying "Two-step authentication enabled" (see attachment), but nothing else happens. It seems like the process is stuck here and isn't completed.

I have tried setting 2SA from my profile settings (https://accounts.firefox.com/settings) too, but when I logout and login again, it says Not Set.

I wouldn't normally use 2SA at all if it hasn't been made mandatory for logging into Add-ons (addons.mozilla.org). Now, I'm locked out of my Add-ons account and can't access my extensions!

Firefox can't keep login even other sites like :Youtube Facebook... Every time I exit Firefox for a while and re-login, the logins to websites log out and have to log back in again and again (I've tried uninstalling Firefox and reinstalling it, and the problem persists). ( I think due to the settings for Firefox )

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

I have a new laptop. Each time I restart I have to sign back onto Firefox Sync. My old computer is automatically signed in which is way more convenient.

I saw one article that said to change the 'history' settings to 'use custom settings for history' with a few additional steps. I have tried this with no change in the programs behavior. Any thoughts?

Thank you,

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.
