I recently uploaded macOS Big Sur onto my MacBook Air. At that point, my Firefox turned into a question mark on the tool bar and I have to sign in to Firefox Sync whenever I click on the question mark (which then becomes the Firefox symbol). Meanwhile, I clicked a link in an email, and this led to a second Firefox showing up in my toolbar. Both are Firefox browser 83.0, 64-bit, but the second one doesn't require signing in. However, the first one (the Sync) did retain my bookmarks. What is going on? And what do I do to just have one version of Firefox, preferably one that retains my bookmarks? Thanks for any advice!

It seems that Firefox does not sync all settings the way for example Chrome does. In Google chrome one can expect absolutely all settings to sync across browser instances instantly. In Firefox only parts of the settings are synced. This makes Firefox unreliable and inconvenient because it is not apparent to the user which settings are synced and which are not.

Here is my experience:

- I made a new Firefox account - Signed in - Made sure syncing is on for:

  • Bookmarks
  • Credit cards
  • History
  • Add-ons
  • Logins and password
  • Options

- Added some add-ons, added some bookmarks - Customized the interface - Changed some Settings - Opened a Windows 10 VM - Installed Firefox 83 (so both computers have the same version) - Logged in with my Firefox account - Waited for the sync

So far I can see that my extensions are synced and my bookmarks. However there are some things that don't sync:

- Customization for controls, buttons and toolbars - Default search engine - Alternative search engines - Settings for "Firefox Data Collection and Use"

There might be more settings that don't sync, which I have not tested. Is this behavior expected? If so I might switch back to Chrome. Syncing only certain settings defeats the purpose of syncing, at least for me.

Also is there any list or information about which settings are syncing and which are not?

I am unable to sync into my firefox account. It says, "The confirmation email we sent to *email address* was returned and we’ve locked your account to protect your Firefox data." According to other threads, one is to wait 24 hours before trying to log in again. It has been more than 24 hours, and I am still unable to access my account.

Any assistance would be appreciated.

Recently, I had to deactivate my old email. Unfortunately, I didn't think to change the email address to my new email before deleting my old one. Now that I have a new computer (Windows 10, same as the old), I can't sync my old Firefox setup to my new setup since I have to verify my account through my old defunct email (impossible to do).

How can I change my Firefox account's email without verifying through the old email address?

I cannot save my password for the Firefox account login page as there is no form information on the page. This is strange as there is a help article in Firefox Lockwise that describes this problem and suggests workarounds, but they do not work on the Firefox account.

Is there a way around this? If not, why does Mozilla block password managers when they are a the same time promoting their own password manager? I am quite frustrated about this as I think there is a flawed logic behind the decision to block password managers to "enable" security.
