This is really not specifically about Firefox Sync or Firefox itself, but I can't find a better match.

 Months ago I changed my email address with Firefox Accounts.  I currently log in with the new email address and I only see the new email address under my account preferences.  But when I add a new device to Firefox Sync, the "Complete Sync Setup" email is going to my old email address, meaning the one I previously used with my Firefox account.
 Can anyone suggest if there is a way to change this or if there is something I am doing wrong?
 Thanks for any help!

I'm aware this has been asked before, and got the answer "at present, this problem can't be solved completely at the technical level" which ... well, isn't very informative, and is rather difficult to accept at face value.

Is there some fundamental issue stopping synced tab entries from having some attribute added to them that would help delineate this? To someone with no programming skills this doesn't sound like it would be hard, though of course I have no idea how the Firefox Sync system works. Still, I'm not asking for a function to restore entire sessions across systems, for example (I can see how that would cause conflicts with the current session) but rather just something that would a) sort tabs by window in the synced tabs list, and b) delineate the windows somehow, either by just a separator line or by some heading ("Window n"?). Given that this information clearly exists in the local session (it's able to restore all windows, after all), I hope it will be possible to add this in some form. To reiterate, I don't want/need it to automatically open synced tabs in the "correct" window or anything like that (I can handle that myself easily enough), but simply to keep them visually sorted and separated in the sync list. This way I can avoid spending 30 minutes sorting tabs that I had previously sorted in case of a system crash or working on a new PC.

In addition to this, I hope the sync system can move to match tab order in the browser rather than the current jumbled mess, which ... might be sorted by whatever was last active? I frankly can't tell, but for those of us with many tabs open at once and working across several devices this is a serious obstacle.

Hi Guys, I asked a quetion before and never had an answer? I will try this one. Why does Firefox seem hell bent on syncing computers? I do not want to do this, all my computers are individual machines and have different perposes. I logged in and all the machines synced up, now I have to remove all the unwanted trasferred data, tabs etc. I now have to untangle the original items on all four computers. This will take me some valuable time. When I log in here all the other machines are switched off in case it gets worse. So, how do I stop synking from happening? Thanks people, perhaps I missed a page. :)

I use three computers but one is my main computer. Is there a way to make these bookmarks my MAIN bookmarks to sync. It is annoying when I sync and my main computer bookmarks get all messed up because the other computers aren't current. I want the two other computers to sync to my main computer and not vice versa. Is there a way to set up the computers sync this way? Thank you in advance.

Hi, I have a question. Is it possible add a new feature to Firefox Sync that will allow user to synchronize only selected passwords? For example in Setting->Synchronize a new checkbox will appear on the list of elements to synchronize or it'll appear as a "subcheckbox" after user clicks "logins and passwords". After that user will be able to click a checkbox for every password separately.

Hi

I've had to rebuild my PC - I have logged back into Firefox only to find none of my Bookmarks or usernames etc have not sync'd back. Absolutely nothing has come down. I've run a manual sync - blank.

Looks like I've lost about 8 years of data, any help would be good. If sync is only between two devices and not kept in the cloud you should probably be warning users that this is the case.

Is there anything I can do to recover them ?
