I have two PC's linked via Sync. However, one computer, "Boomie" does everything I want, ie, I go to the website, and Firefox has remembered my login info, and it's been entered into the box and all I need to do is enter my password. On the other computer, "Littleman", the one I am typing this from, whatever website I go to, all my login info is blank and I need to choose from the saved Logins and Passwords. The Logins should already be there. These two computers are supposedly synced up. However, I dare not do anything l'est I make my other computer, "Boomie" start misbehaving like this computer does.

For example, if I login to Amazon from "Boomie" my login name is usually there, and then I can choose the Password from the saved Logins and Passwords. However, nothing is there.

Some websites I use have triple security on them, so that data should be entered into the boxes for me to type in my 3rd password. But I am forced to choose from the list of saved Logins and Passwords.

The question is, how do I make "Littleman" stop having me choose my login name every time I go to a frequently visited website ?

sync connected services of 2 computers overwrite each other

Hello, I have a desktop and a laptop. I want to sync my firefox data (tabs, history, etc) between them. Now the problem.

Only one device shows up under my account's "Connected Services". Each time I sync or change the profile name on the dekstop or on the laptop they overwrite each other.
i.e. I will have under "Connected Services" a single client with name "desktop", then i go to my laptop and enable sync with name "laptop" and now on my account there is only client "laptop". if I go to my desktop and change the name of the desktop sync client to "desktop2" and update, then i will only have "desktop2" under "Connected Services". How can i connect both my laptop and desktop to my account to sync data between them????

I suspect it could have something to do with me cloning my firefox installation from the laptop to teh desktop and they having the same "ID"? if that makes sense?. ( I cloned the entire C: drive of the laptop to a new drive and use that as a C: drive for the desktop)

Firefox not working when previously it had prior to my loading MS Edge.

Hi, I have found issues recently trying to get to certain website addresses where I end up with a blank page when using Firefox. These previously worked fine. I then used the same address on MS Edge and I get to the site and the the page I wish to be on. I have to admit that this did not happen prior to my installing MS Edge. Interstingly, the two websites I found this happening had to do with approaching Photo-Voltaic websites, one being FoxESS (Chinese Equipment Manufacturer's data logging facility) and the other being SMA (a German similar Manufacturer's data logging facility). I think this has nothing to do with the sector they represent but is a reaction of my Windows 10 system having another program from MS that wishes to dominate their opposition's performance. (Is this me being paranoid?).

The first one to do this, was when I approached "https://www.foxesscloud.com/bus/device/inverter" and the second one was "https://www.sunnyportal.com/FixedPages/HoManEnergyRedesign.aspx" These require 'logins' when you get there. I would be happy to pass these on to you if it is necessary.

I have endeavoured to get away from MS from time to time, but it does not seem to be a simple exercise. So I tend to go with the flow that works.

By the bye, I use system cleaning software regularly (Glary Utilities 5, MalwareBytes) and some others occasionally and all seem to say they get rid of 'trackers' and and 'malware'). I also use Kaspersky for internet protection and that seems to work well. So my system seems 'clean', but whether MS has buried something somewhere I cannot assess. As it is only affecting a couple of sites, I think I may be experiencing something quite different. Any ideas? Thanks.

Hi, I use separate business and personal computers and have separate Firefox accounts for business and personal. I needed to use my personal account for something while I was working, so I signed out of my business account, signed in to my personal, and when I signed in to my business account again Firefox had synced everything from my personal account into my business account, which I really don't want. How do I undo this and stop it happening again in the future? Many thanks for your help. Lee J
