When I try to connect to my FF-sync account from my home-pc's I always get an "unexpected error". Sometimes I have to wait almost a minute trying to log in before the error occurs. At my working-pc everythings fine... - Logging completely out of the account and back in doesn't help. - Also restoring the password and create a new account doesn't help. - Also restoring firefox to factory default doesn't work.

No more idea how I can solve this...

Everything else is working with no internet-connection-problems and a proxy is not in use.

Does FF-Sync use a special port for sync or something that my router maybe does block?

Thanks and Greetz, Claudio

I have a working Firefox sync account, running on two computers already. I tried to log in on a new computer, and received a "Password Incorrect" error. I think this is related to the change to Sync in Sep 2015.

My account was created in 2012, and the password is stored in a password manager, so I know it is not lost and not incorrect. The password was last changed in Aug 2012.

I tried following the instructions here: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/sync-your-firefox-bookmarks-history-passwords-and- but there is already a Sync account with my email address, so it doesn't work.

How do I create a new Firefox account with the existing email address, without losing the existing information? Is it best to delete the account with a connected computer, then create a new account and synchronise again?

Здравствуйте создал аккаунт в Mozilla Firefox очень давно.сохранял там пароли,сайты нужные для меня закладки все и всегда работало отлично,переустанавливал Windows,после чего скачивал Mozilla Firefox заходил в аккаунт Firefox и все закладки,пароли,сайты были всегда на своем месте.Сегодня переустановил Windows установил Mozilla Firefox,зашел в аккаунт Firefox и обнаружил что нет ни одной закладки которые я сохранял многие годы.ни одного пароля ни чего все исчезло и не понятно почему,хотя вчера вечером я еще пользовался и закладками и пароля. Параметры синхронизации: Выберите, что нужно синхронизировать на ваших устройствах при помощи Firefox. 1.Закладки, 2.Открытые вкладки, 3.Логины, 4.Историю, 5.Дополнения, 6.Настройки все эти параметры включены! да и опять не первый год пользуюсь Mozilla Firefox ,сколько раз уже за эти годы переустанавливал Windows и Mozilla Firefox всегда все работало отлично.мне именно эта функция и нравилась Mozilla Firefox что все сайты,пароли и закладки сохраняются на аккаунте и не нужно их постоянно искать и вводить. Как восстановить все те закладки,пароли и т.д. что было на аккаунте Mozilla Firefox!?

I opened a laptop I haven't used in over a year. Firefox down-dated all my bookmarks to the year-old settings which means lost all my passwords, URLs and links that I had configured. Since the sync is universal, it removed them from ALL my computers. Now, the only way I have of getting the old links, is to restore my entire computer!


needless to say, I am pissed! This is a bug that existed over a year ago and was reported!

For the first time since Firefox was released, I am considering changing to a new browser!

is there any way to recover the new book marks that were deleted?


This is phenomenally stupid!

I'm in France and I wanted to use Firefox Sync for the first time. I had to insert the phone number in order to add a second device and the system had already filled the form with +33 that is the international prefix for french numbers. The problem is that I don't have a french phone number and I wanted to use another prefix but it is impossible. I tried using 00 instead of plus or directly without the prefix but I always get as answer that "the phone number is invalid". Could someone help me to understand which is the rule used to validate the phone number? Thank you in advance.

Подтверждение по электронной почте, поэтому мы заблокировали аккаунт для защиты ваших данных Firefox.

Полчаса назад я спокойно вошел. Но потом при повторной попытке словил это сообщение. Почта рабочая так как письмо от вашей службы поддержки пришло.

So, As the title says I am unable to sign into my firefox sync account; whenever I try to I get a message saying that I have entered an incorrect password (though the password I had entered was correct)

Even after resetting firefox still fails to recognize my password

Interestingly the only workaround i have found is resetting and allowing my browser to recognize my password, and auto-insert it makes it sign it correctly, which is funny since when I type or paste the correct password it isn't recognized.

This issue appears on all iterations of firefox (Linux; Windows; Mobile)

I cannot get this PC to (stay) connect to Sync - Every time I log in, I get an email, but within seconds (sometimes instantly, sometimes after a few minutes) I get the yellow warning triangle with the "reconnect to sync" message.

I have tried the steps in another post:

delete the signedInUser.json file in the Firefox profile folder and delete the Weave folder

But that hasn't worked.

I have uploaded a sync.log https://pastebin.com/AqSgha95

Hey, guys. I got a new laptop as a christmas present, and have been trying to synch bookmarks between my old craptop and it. Surprise surprise, the craptop is erroring when I try to synch. I have the error log here, but, as I am new to the site, don't know how to add it to my post, other than by copy/pasting the contents, and it is too long to do that. So... might need to let me know how to do that. Sorry.
