Hello

I hope you can help.

Trying to sync my logins/passwords from my laptop to my desktop. It just doesnt work.

I have reset primary password, logged into both devices, selected sync on both devices. But it does not sync to desktop. Both machines come up in the Connected Services setion of my mozilla account.

When i try to manually enter logins & password on desktop list - it keeps asking me to enter my primary password (despite already being logged into firefox).

This is very frustrating so any help is greatly appreciated.

Firefox Sync broken, keeps messing up my sync

Hello Mozilla,

I'm at wit's end with using Firefox sync. I've tried every fix I can find in the support docs, including deleting my account, stopping sync on all devices and fully deleting the app on 2 Windows PCs, a Mac, two iPads and an iPhone. I've tried creating a new account, then reinstalling a clean backed up copy that I'd fixed all the screwed up bookmarks, then reinstalled and reysnced all devices and FF sync is still an utter mess.

It keeps messing up the order of my folders and bookmarks, as well as randomly duplicating the bookmarks all over hell and creation in my bookmarks segmentation.

This is the first time I've had a problem with Sync, but I'm getting sick of it, because I cannot rely on it to work and because I'm too reliant on my bookmarks for many things, I'm about to dump using Firefox entirely, which is saying something because I despise other browsers.

I'd appreciate help.

I recently suffered a bug in my PC that led to me having to reinstall the OS. I am now trying to reclaim my session/bookmarks etc from Firefox but I'm not able to sign in on the browser. I'm able to sign in on a web page with my email, but no luck with the actual browser menu. The only option I'm seeing otherwise will be to reset my password, but that will seemingly delete years of important data that I only have on Firefox because I trust it!

Please help! Desperately trying to come up with a solution!

I was having some hard drive trouble so I formatted my pc. I did not think much of the browser favorites and tabs because they should have been synced.

This time, however, I seem to be unable to retrieve the data from my old computer, there is even a computer in my synced items (I'm hoping from the system before restoring, windows 11 on what used to be windows 10) but am unable to get anything from it, or see the history ect

I am having an issue importing my passwords from Chrome. I am using version 121.0.1 (64-bit). I have tried the import from another browser, it doesn't work. I have saved the passwords as an CSV file and all I am getting is " Error: Missing field". I have tried to follow some fixes for this issue. When I try and manually go through and create a saved login all I get is an error and I would be asked to input an primary password even though I never created one. I tried to create one and it errors out and just says "Unable to change Primary Password." I have signon.management.page.fileImport.enabled = true signon.management.page.fileImport.enabled = true

security.allow_eval_in_parent_process = true

The other issue I'm having and its inconsistent is pulling tabs to create an new window. Sometimes it doesn't work and other others it does. I have verified that browser.tabs.allowTabDetach

My Firefox does not restore data automatically. I will recount everything as follows. Initially, my Firefox showed signs of lagging, so I deleted Firefox and reinstalled it (at this time my account was still logged in and syncing normally). After I successfully reinstalled Firefox, I forgot the password because I hadn’t logged into Firefox for a long time. After I reset the password and logged into Firefox to sync, and I clicked Sync now many times, it still did not sync and retrieve all the data I had earlier. Can someone help me! Many of my important documents have been lost!

Hi

I am a web dev, and need FF help on this. All of my sync data is gone, I sign out and back in twice, I checked the profiles there's only one, all of my bookmarks, plugins & extensions everything is gone. Please I need those bookmarks some of them were very important to me I can't lose those.

Back-story: I recently want to try two distro that I had been on my list from quite a while now, VanillaOS & BlendOS, I worked on those for 3 or 4 days, before switching back to Arch, on both of them everything was working fine, I had all of my data. On Arch I had to reset my password because I forgot. Then the issue started, at first I thought maybe my internet was slow or something but now on the 2nd my data is still not synced.

I even signed out and back in, I checked the profiles(screenshot below). What should I do?
