I have Firefox on my laptop (Win10 Pro) and on my Android phone; just bought a new office computer that is running Win11. My laptop has a long list of bookmarks and a dozen or more open tabs. I would like to get this same setup on the new computer. I thought I followed directions but since it does not work I guess I have missed something important.

Go to the menu in upper right, then the > next to my account, which brings up Manage Account, Syncing, several other items, then a list of tabs on my phone, another list of tabs on my laptop, and a third list of tabs on an old computer that no longer exists. It has been syncing for 2-3 hours without evident progress. I would like to delete the dead computer to avoid confusion but see no way to do it. Mainly I want to sync with the laptop or, failing that, import the bookmarks from it.

I also copied the FF profile from the old computer into the new one. The files and directory structures are identical but FF cannot read the profile. I do not know what to do about any of this.

I noticed that in the "Synced Tabs" on Firefox for Windows 10, there are duplicate devices listed down that are not listed in my "Connected Devices" page. I noticed this after I was fixing a bug on my Firefox Installation that ended with me uninstalling and re-installing it, then signing back into sync.

Essentially, the "Synced Tabs" it shows 2 different "devices" for the same laptop:

What is even stranger is that these Duplicates don't show up on my other Firefox devices such as my Phone and iPad, they only appear on my laptop's instance of Firefox.

Verification emails will not send to address with non-standard TLD

I tried multiple times to sign up using my email address that uses the domain @sleepy.fish. I was slightly tipped off when firefox attempted to ask if I had made a mistake entering my email... i tried multiple ways to get the verification emails send both via web client and ios app and it simply would not send. To sanity check I created a new account using an old @gmail.com address and immediately got the verification email.

I'm kinda migrating off of mega corp google products though, hence the signing up for firefox sync haha. Would be great if I could figure out how to ensure delivery of the verification email so I can complete account setup with my custom domain email

I use the Firefox app on an Android phone and I've renamed the device to "Samsung Galaxy A50". When I use Firefox on my computer if I click on the "Show tabs from other devices" button instead of my custom name it shows a default name with the model number.

"Send Page to Device" does display the personalized name.

I've tried logging off from the Android app and logging in again. The custom name appears for a few hours but then reverts to the default name again.

Hi, Approximately 8 years ago, I deleted my google account, which I use on firefox. And 5 years ago, I lost my computer as well. When I tried to sync firefox data on my new computer, firefox asked me to verify via email, which is deleted. I have no longer an access to my google account to verify, and the only way to sync my old firefox account is losing my old data. I had to create a new firefox account. Is there any way to restore my profile data? (Note: I am sending this question via the same account that I need to restore profile data from). Regards
