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

My devices haven't synced in 3 weeks (my phone says 2/2/2016; my personal laptop says 2/7/2016). When I click the 'sign in' button on the sync page on my work laptop, it just gives me a screen that says '500 Error Oh dear, something went wrong there. We've been notified and will get working on a fix." with a big blue 'Home' button that takes me nowhere (see image attached).

Firefox has become completely unusable for me because it has become very slow. It was fine on this computer (newer i7, 32GB ram, ssd) last weekend but not this. It is actually happening on two different computers. It becomes impossible to type (echo is seconds and windows reports that the application is not responsive).

However sysinternals procexp doesn't report anything much unusual for the computer as whole or FF. Speed test shows that my internet connection is fine and Chrome is working normally

I have paired sync down to only bookmarks and add-ons of which there are only 5.

The problem may be due to sync - FF seems to perform normally in safe mode or before it has asked for the master password.

I have a beef with visibility around sync - it doesn't seem to be possible to see how often it is running, how much data it is sending, how many disk writes are happening.

I am submitting this report from Chrome because FF is unusable.

Hello, i just changed HDD to SSD in my laptop, installed new Windows, instaled Firefox, logged in, it says synced, but i dont have my bookmarks, history, tabs, nothing.

If i look into Manage acccount -> Devices and apps -> There is current device synced and also previous device synced few hours ago, but nothing from previous device is synced. Before i wiped old HDD i checked everything, so all was synced (tabs, bookmarks, ...). When i did just system reinstal last time, it was syncing correctly.

Thank you for help.

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 am the owner of the my home directory and permissions on mozilla directory tree are 755.

It appears that this error is also affecting regular downloads from all websites. I have treid creating a new, empty profile and still get the error.

All i get is this message in a popup:

"[null] could not be saved, because an unknown error occurred.

Try saving to a different location."

Backing up to a json or html file will save all my bookmarks except for the mobile ones I sync between my laptop and my phone. The jsonlz4 file in my profile folder also does not save mobile bookmarks. Sync by itself is usually enough to preserve all my bookmarks, but I made the mistake of installing FF ESR alongside regular FF which screwed everything up; it would have been nice to have had my complete bookmarks backed up at that point, so I could have restored all of them.

Btw, my laptop browser is spoofed: I'm using FF 60.0.1 on Linux Mint; I'm syncing my laptop with my android phone (FF 60.0.1 also).

I have several system that all use Firefox and are configured to use sync. All of them, but this one sync fine. The one with the issue is on a RHEL 7.5 host and is running FireFox 52.8.0. What is odd is that I was able to register the system with sync, but when I click on the sync icon, nothing happens. The sync logs indicate some errors:

I signed into Sync across 3 devices. When I visit about:preferences?entrypoint=menupanel#sync in one device, the other 2 devices are not shown. Clicking "Connect another device" does not do anything even if I've signed in across other devices. However, going to "Manage Account" brings me to accounts.firefox.com and shows me all 3 devices when I expand "Devices & apps".

So I know that all my devices are linked to my account, but it's like they don't see each other. Pressing "Sync now" does nothing, and it says my last sync was January 1. I just installed Firefox across 2 of the devices today. The Synced Tabs sidebar is also empty.

I checked about:sync-log, and I've been getting this error: ERROR Sync encountered an error: Error: Can't sync: Network is offline

Clearly, my network is online as I am able to post this. Firefox Sync's service status is also UP/AVAILABLE. Not sure what else could be wrong here.

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.
