My Subject pretty well says it. I'm trying to transfer by syncing my desktop Firefox with the Firefox 124 on a newly installed Kubuntu on a new laptop. I have all these functions synced ON. The recent history but not the long-term history, passwords (thank heavens), and all bookmarks got transferred, but not the open tabs/pages. I've done the desktop sync followed by the laptop sync a few times, still without the tabs' transferring. How do i get those transferred?

I came to Firefox Sync via Foxmarks. IIRC, I used to be able to manage different bookmark sets within the same Foxmarks account. Furthermore, logging in to Foxmarks on the web gave me access to the server list of bookmarks, so I could easily back it up to protect against the kind of "initial sync" malfunctions which have been reported several times here.

  1. Numbered list item I use two different logins in my home network: one for everyday work and one for administrative tasks. Is it possible to have separate collections of sync items (e.g. bookmarks, logins) for these two accounts and still use Firefox Syn to sync them between machines, or do I need two different Firefox logins for this?
  2. Numbered list item Is there any way to access the server copy of a bookmark list, other than exporting it from a synced instance of Firefox?

Hello everyone,

I was forced to reformat my computer today and I seem to have lost all of my passwords that were saved in Firefox.

I did not back up any of the files that were on my PC as I was unable to do so. I think I have been able to log back in my account and find my passwords.

When I logged back into my Firefox after re-installing it, my passwords are all gone. I need help!

Thank you all

Dear Firefox Officer,

I have been requested by e-mail to update my Firefox 78.15.Oesr (64 bits) before the end of March. Is this update compatible with my MacBookPro5,4 with IOS El Capitan 10.11.6? Please note that I cannot install a more recent IOS. Without updating my present Firefox, would I still have access to all my favorite folders and applications? Thanks for your help. Best regards, Marcel Arnould

I recently suffered a bug in my PC that led to me having to reinstall the OS. I am now trying to reclaim my session/bookmarks etc from Firefox but I'm not able to sign in on the browser. I'm able to sign in on a web page with my email, but no luck with the actual browser menu. The only option I'm seeing otherwise will be to reset my password, but that will seemingly delete years of important data that I only have on Firefox because I trust it!

Please help! Desperately trying to come up with a solution!

My Firefox does not restore data automatically. I will recount everything as follows. Initially, my Firefox showed signs of lagging, so I deleted Firefox and reinstalled it (at this time my account was still logged in and syncing normally). After I successfully reinstalled Firefox, I forgot the password because I hadn’t logged into Firefox for a long time. After I reset the password and logged into Firefox to sync, and I clicked Sync now many times, it still did not sync and retrieve all the data I had earlier. Can someone help me! Many of my important documents have been lost!

On one laptop right-clicking on a tab gives me a Send tab to device option and when I click on it I get a message that the tab was sent. But the tab doesn't arrive on the other laptop. 2. Though I'm using the same version of Firefox on both laptops, I can only find the send tab option on one laptop because the menus are different. And many of the instructions I see online describe items on the menu that just don't show up. I know that I was once -- I don't know how long ago -- able to send a tab from one laptop to another. Most of the instructions are about sending from a phone to a desktop or vice versa. I hope someone can help. Thank you.

Tomorrow I will help a friend update their unsupported Linux OS to the most current version of the OS. The present version of Firefox is 88. Firefox could not update I assume because of the age of the OS.

My concern is porting everything correctly from the old to the new version of Firefox. If I setup sync, will it restore his passwords and add-ons in addition to his bookmarks?

If not is there a good way to do it?

I used the password manager feature years and go to it probably 5+ times a week. I went to look for a password today and there are only 5 accounts in there. Trying not to panic I went to my computer to see if it was just my iOS device that wasn't showing them all for some reason, but only the same five accounts are in there too. When I first setup my ipad, all the accounts in the password vault sync'd but they all showed empty so I never bothered looking them up on there. I'm wondering if somehow the ipad's failed sync caused all the other passwords to be corrupted and removed from my account somehow. The 5 accounts I do have are all new accounts I've made over the past month, and I've used it a ton since the old ones. Any ideas for how I could get them back?
