I use 1 Firefox account on 3 devices (2 PCs and a smartphone). On the first PC, the number of synchronized passwords is 1126. On the second PC - 135 (similar on a smartphone).

I pressed the "Synchronize" button many times, everything works, new tabs appear, but there are no passwords. What to do? I'm afraid that if I log out of my account on the first PC, I will lose all access forever.

I signed up and sync'd my data from my laptop before it died, but when I signed in on my desktop none of my bookmarks or passwords are the ones from my laptop account, its all still my desktop's. I even tried uninstalling and reinstalling and firefox automatically restored all my desktop crap. I really need my laptop's bookmarks, any advice? Thanks in advance

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 use windows 10 Pro as the main synching device to synch Firefox to my iPhone ver. 14 and ninth generation iPad. Neether the iPhone or iPad will synch. Seems like the changing of the guard in management has screwed things up that were working a few days ago.

windows 10 pro pc show all the booklinks however, synch to an Iphone 14 to ipad 9th generation and it does not synch. I have tried all the fixes and nothing works. Time to stop using Mozilla products? what the devil is going on with the Mozilla staff? Hard to provide a contribution when products don't work!

I have my bookmarks synced from two accounts on chrome. It worked fine, but now it stopped. My bookmarks toolbar is empty, except for an icon to fullscreen. It acts as if I have all of my bookmarks on there, and I can access them in the menu function. They're just not on the toolbar.

I've already hid/shown the toolbar multiple times, I've rescynced my browser data, I've fiddled with my toolbar settings, but honestly, I'm at a loss. I'm not the best with computers so if there's an obvious answer please let me know. Thank you!

Hello; so, my brother lend me his old laptop, clean. I signed in firefox with my account and explore normally. One day, he need it back a couple days so he can work while he repairs his main machine. Log off of my account and log on in his. Now my bookmarks, historial, loggins, etc appear in his session. We think that can not be possible with separate accounts with different associated e-mail and passwords, but here we are.

There is a way to separate my things from his account? It only happens to him, i don't have in my browser his data. Thanks

I am signed into Firefox on desktop and mobile using the same email. I've enabled sync and have synced. Yet my passwords from the mobile browser still don't show on desktop. And the instructions to scan a QR code don't work because they state to click the "sync and save data" option on Android, which doesn't exist for me. How do I sync?

I am logged into my Mozilla account on four devices: Laptop Linux, Desktop Linux, Desktop Windows, Phone Android. However, when I try “Send tab to device” or list the devices in the account settings, the two Linux devices are not shown separately, so I can’t send a tab from Laptop Linux to Desktop Linux or vice versa. In fact, when I edit the Device name on either of the Linux device, that name will also be shown on the other device.

How is this possible? How can I disentangle the two devices?

I've been trying to sign in to my Firefox account so I can sync my data since last night. I reinstalled windows as I got a new platform yesterday and didn't want any driver issues. I instead was met with issues getting my primary browser to work after installing it.

I entered 2 different passwords once each and since they didn't work I clicked forgot password. Once I wrote my email in and clicked continue however despite it being the first time I clicked the button I was met with "You've tried too many times. Try again in 29 minutes". It game me that every time I waited out the time and tried again for 3 hours yesterday and it's still giving me that error today after another hour and a half on both my phone and my pc.

Good evening,

I have a new laptop, from the same brand and make as my old one, both are HP pavilion with the same configuration and only 2 years in between! I have been trying on and off for weeks, to synchronise my FF browser, with all open tabs, history and bookmarks, but all to no avail. I do everything the sync instruction tells me to do, but nothing happens. I am getting desparate, because my old laptop has a problem (hardware, nothing that could prevent synchronising) and is still under warranty, but time is running out!

Will anybody help here, and how do I receive answers?

Hi, some years ago sending tabs to a device worked fine, but for some time now it stopped working. Is it just me or is it a general bug? All my devices are listed in my account. It also shows that they are updated frequently. I tried sending from Windows-Firefox to Android-Firefox and back. Nothing worked. What can I do? Best regards, Eric
