I am switching jobs and want to sync my Firefox history from old work computer to new. Both run Windows. I changed the primary email associated with my account from the old work account to a new email. No problem. I synced the new email to my iphone no problem. Now im trying to download and sync Firefox to my new laptop. Running Windows and Im trapped in a crazy loop. I login with correct password to the new email and it asks for the authorization code and when I enter that, Firefox switches to the OLD email and asks for that password. I am not sure I have that password correct because i set the account up four years ago. Regardless, i cant sync my new laptop. But I was able to sync it on my iphone so it CAN be done with the email addy and password I am confident about. Please help.

Last year someone asked about 2 Firefox for Android applications; I just had two different copies of Firefox installed on my Win 10 laptop (one in an attempt by Microsoft to upgrade to Win 11) where all my data was in the old app named 'Mozilla Firefox') while the newly installed app was just 'Firefox' and had none of my data. I did not attempt that new install, it seems Microsoft did ?? They also mentioned wanting to redirect the new Firefox to specific Domain Name Service servers, rather than the traditional server addresses provided by the local network. Anyone know what's going on?

hello why can there not be a simple way of getting your passwords back after and up grade has lost them why is there not a simple restore button that allows novices like me to just press and reinstall , with out going through the ends of the earth on firefox todo this ? open this file then open that file, lose what has been saved and replace with another file, it is an impossible way to do this for a novice on firefox , with out paying a lot of money to a tech guy that will take a couple of minutes to do but that will take a novice months and not get it done in the end,
