I registered for Sync on May 2, received the verification email from Firefox Accounts <verification@accounts.firefox.com> on that day, and immediately verified. But ever since, I have not been able to log in and when I asked to reset password, I was told that there is no record of my email address--the same address at which I received the "Verify your account" email.

I have already tried adding a boolean named "services.sync.prefs.sync.browser.uiCustomization.state" and set it as "true" according to this answer (https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1022917). But it doesn't help with anything... Is there some way to tell my Firefox to sync my customized interface (such as "do not show menu bar" and "do not show search bar" ? Waiting for your help. Thanks. P.S.: It will be better if you can answer this question in Simplified Chinese!

Came from the Dev edition, uninstalled and went back to Vanilla Firefox. I'm trying to log back in to Firefox Sync after refreshing the installation and I'm getting Unexpected Error when trying to login from https://accounts.firefox.com/signin?service=sync, Error 500 when logging in from the Sync tab in the about:preferences page.

I also tried doing what was listed in here (https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1111360) but nothing seems to solve my problem. My current installation only has uBlock Origin and HTTPS Everywhere installed (recently refreshed).

about:sync-log doesn't show anything either. Anyone know how to fix this? (email/password removed from image)

I've just reinstall my PC and I wanted to synchronize the firefox with my old data. The problem is that my given email was not available when I wanted to login. Hence, Firefox shows me 'Your email was just returned. Mistyped email?' error. Now my email is available again, but I can't login to get the verification email.

Is there away to get rid of that error?

Thank you.

I setup my firefox account on my laptop because it warned me my hard drive was gonna fail, after doing to I went to sync, it told me to sign in on another device, I did so on another laptop and also and android tablet, however on my account it shows that the laptop originally that all my book marks was on, was last synced 4 days ago along with the android device, but I am not getting those bookmarks on the new Desktop, other laptop, or the android device, this seems utterly useless.

How can I view/access or export the bookmarks that were originally synced with the account?

I installed Firefox for the new synchronization feature, both on my phone and on PC. On my phone the browser functions decently well, albeit extremely slow to search what I type in the bar at the top, usually requiring me to reintroduce it.

Anyway, the problem on my PC is sync always seems to be logged out, requiring me to retype my password (despite telling the browser to save whenever I do) and verify my email. I have done this about 10 times now, and as you can imagine its not pleasant.

Besides this, I have had the browser crash on me about 3 times, only to restart 5 seconds later with no message or indication as to what happened wrong, with the browser's settings reverted to the default (Yahoo search engine, etc.)

That about sums it up. I appreciate any help you can give me, and thanks in advance.

Ho Firefox sincronizzato con un iPhone. Modifico, aggiungo o elimino i preferiti sola dal PC. A distanza di tempo i preferiti eliminati tornano sulla barra e si sommano a quelli esistenti. Avvio e riaccendo il computer più volte e tutto va bene, poi, periodicamente mi ricarica tutti i vecchi preferiti. È un forte disturbo. Non so cosa fare.

I have Firefox synchronized with an iPhone. I edit, add or delete favorites only from the PC. After a while the deleted favorites return to the bar and add up to the existing ones. Starting and restarting the computer several times and everything is fine, then, periodically I reload all old favorites. It is a strong disorder. I do not know what to do. (Google trad.)

When I use Firefox Sync, I thought, like Chrome, EVERYTHING was going to sync. All my Add-On data, accounts, passwords browser layout, you know, the whole enchilada. I was annoyed to find out that nothing of the sort was preserved. I arranged browser a certain way, and I want it to stat that way. How do I sync ALL data? And if not possible, please make it.
