I get that I need to have certain addons only for the developer Version, but I've been having difficulty keeping up with what I need for one and ones that meet my specific needs otherwise. I can only type using one finger at a time due to my autism causing poor coordination. I've been having trouble keeping my gmail synced up in places and it's the mail one I use. But I can't sync my password to different devices as it always asks for a password I haven't used before. I am happy to keep the addons proper on the developer version, and not use it for anything until I ca get it set up without having to re-sync everything. Do you have a suggestion for limited motor ability?

Firefox will never ever open in maximized window after I log in with my Firefox account and make some changes to the toolbars. Advanced properties to make maximizing default won't work either. It hasn't worked for many Firefox versions I've tried and that caused me to use Chrome. But if you manage to fix this problem, I'll be more than happy to stick with Firefox.

I had a lot of important bookmarks in Firefox without signed in Firefox account on my old PC. Before moving away from that old PC, I signed in to firefox account to it connect Firefox data with my mail and account. I even tested that in way that I signed out from my account, removed all the data from Firefox, and when I signed in again, it was all there. It was about 5 months ago. Now, on my new PC, when I signed in with same account, there is no any those bookmarks. I tried to restore bookmarks, but it offers me only two time points in past for restoring, and none of those gives me back bookmarks or any other data. I didn't use that account with Firefox until now. Please help, there was a lot of important bookmarks to me for work.

I did a Firefox restore due to suspect browser hijack ( it wasn't). All mu saved logins have been eraases so tried to do a manaul sync.

This pops up a yellow bar along the top of the "Logins and Paswords" page saying "Please enter your master password to view saved logics and passwords" . I don't have a master password set so that makes little sense. To the right of the yellow bar is a button "login". if i click the button ther yellow bar goes away but there is no log in dialog.

What do I do to get Fiefox to sync?

I am using firefox on my desktop and laptop with sync to get the same bookmarks, extensions, logins & passwords on both. Yesterday I did a fresh re-install of windows and firefox on my laptop. Them I logged into sync.

After a few minutes, it got my bookmarks and my extensions reinstalling, but that was yesterday and ever since, I never got my logins and passwords.

I checked the "logins" box in about:preferences#sync, checked "use a master password" in about:preferences#privacy and did a "sync now" but still no passwords and logins. They should still be on my desktop (I did not start it since) but I am afraid they will disappear when I connect if it syncs with the laptop which has none of them.

How can I be sure I keep them on my desktop when I turn it on? Can I save them somehow?

And then how can I get them on my laptop too?

I"ve read through other articles. My firefox and sync are up to date. I have bookmarks checked. I use two firefox on two different microsoft PCs. I tried changing my options in sync to see if the chances would show up in firefox on my other computer. They did, so I have that much right. I tried turning off bookmarks in the sync, syncing, then clicking the box and syncing again. I want to say it can't be me, but of course it has to be or everyone would be having the same problem.

How do I contact a Mozilla/Firefox employee about my problem? Synced tabs issue

I have an android phone running android 9 (Pie) and I had over 100 tabs on it open (mostly news articles and stuff). It is signed into my Firefox account. I realized that's a lot of tabs and the past 2 days I've been actually sorting them and closing some of them. I realized I could do this on my desktop as well. Anyways my phone froze while I had Firefox open, and I realized my tabs on there were all missing... I decided not to panic yet because I could still get to them on my desktop. Turns out when I open the "synced tabs" pane on my desktop which is logged into the same firefox account.. none of the 100+ tabs are there anymore either. How do I actually contact someone that can revert my sync status or whatever to a previous state so I can get my tabs and stuff back that I had open? Firefox crashing on my phone SHOULD NOT EVER somehow close all of those tabs on BOTH the phone and the computer. I guess the crash of firefox somehow wiped them out, and then my desktop synced with that account, realized those tabs were "closed" and cleared the list there as well.

HELP??

Windows 10 (1903). Quite often I find that sync never completes, the spinning wheel, it just keeps spinning. I have to exit Firefox and restart, and upon restart I need to kill the previous Firefox instance. Then, and only then, will sync work. But not for long, usually in a few hours it's hung up again. This only happens on my Windows 10 machine (sync works fine with my FF mobile and Windows 7 devices).

Recently got a new work desktop computer and when Firefox 68.0.1 was installed, it will not sync with my home desktop computer. On both computers, in the "Devices and Apps", both do show up as connected, but the work computer still will not sync. When I click to "connect another device", it only tried to install Firefox on my phone - no other option. I have spent 15 hours doing everything I can find on line to fix, but nothing works. I even uninstalled Firefox and ALL related items on my work computer and tried to install a couple of older versions, thinking maybe I could get it to sync and then do an update; however when ever I try to install any older version, it only installs 68.0.1. I am a CEO/software engineer I know my way around computers very well, but still can not solve this problem. I may be forced to switch browsers.

If I display Firefox Accounts under sync in preferences, each computer shows the other's session, and each indicates the correct time of the other's sync. But the bookmarks are not being transferred between the two. The Linux computer (running Quantum 67.0) has not been used for awhile, but it has a big buildup of bookmarks that need to be transferred to the Mac (67.0.2). Both machines have probably 10's of thousands of bookmarks organized in a complex nested hierarchy.

The Mac and a second Mac (also 67.0.2) are syncing bookmarks with each other correctly.

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.
